Enchong Dee talks about his friendship with Maja Salvador and why they want to avoid any romantic involvement on the set of 'Ina Kapatid Anak.'
Enchong Dee maintained that he and co-star Maja Salvador don’t need to be romantically linked for their tandem to work in their upcoming teleserye Ina, Kapatid, Anak
. All he could promise viewers was that they would do justice to their characters Ethan and Margaux respectively. “Hindi naman kailangan lagyan ng kulay. Mas mae-
explore yung ganong
team-up na hindi mo kailangan sabihin sa tao na, ‘Uy meron kaming
something.’ Basta ibibigay namin sa inyo yung
best namin. Bahala na ang tao kung tatanggapin nila
,” he said during their grand press con last October 3.
When asked if there’s a chance for him to fall for Maja, Enchong was honest enough to say that no one can really say what the future holds for them. He’s just happy because they work well together and it makes their jobs easier. “Yung ganiyang klaseng tanong hindi mo masasagot at this moment e. Pero sa ngayon talaga masaya kami kasi excited ako to go to our tapings dahil alam ko na yung ginagawa naming trabaho magiging madali for everyone. Ang dali e. At last nakakapag-take one na ulit ako. Kasi binigay ko na, yun na yun.”
Enchong also revealed that Maja spoils him a lot on the set. “Inaalagaan niya talaga ako. Sabi ko nga, parang ready na talaga ’to sa buhay kasi ’di ko alam kung saan niya kinukuha yung ganong klaseng pagaalaga. Yung the way siya mag-alaga ng isang tao secured ka sa sarili mo e. Hindi lang dahil sa food na ibinibigay niya sa akin. Kapag ’di kami magkasama sa taping magkakamustahan kami, even outside [work].” And since it’s her birthday on October 5, he admitted that he’s already thinking of the perfect gift to give her.
Push.com.ph also learned from Maja that Enchong is the kind of friend who knows when to listen and when to give advice if needed. To which he wisely replied, “Sabi ko nga yung trabaho namin drama na e. Hindi mo na kailangan dagdagan ng drama. I-enjoy mo lang. Ini-enjoy ko buhay ko, ganon din siya. Tsaka paminsan naisip ko, ‘Ba’t kaya ang tagal dumating ng isang bagay?’ Ngayon dumating na dito sa buhay ko. Perfect timing kasi alam mo na kapag napaaga or napa-late baka hindi ganon kaganda ang kinalabasan. Nandito kami sa oras at pagkakataon na buti na lang eto kami ngayon.”
Enchong wasa honest with his feelings while remaining a perfect gentleman at the same time. As it is, he has been courting Julia Montes for several months now. He said he wants to keep his personal life low key as much as possible. When he was prodded about the state of his heart right now, he simply replied, “I am really secured of whatever I have right now.”
