Piolo Pascual admitted that he and Angelica Panganiban have grown closer after working together on the movie Every Breath U Take and their upcoming soap Apoy Sa Dagat. He also witnessed how Angelica struggled with a breakup up until she found love again. “Magkaibigan naman kami e. Wala naman kami tinatago sa isa’t isa. Kung ano man pinagsye-share-an namin, personal na yun. Hindi kami showbiz sa isa’t isa,” he said in an interview with Push.com.ph.
Piolo further shared that he’s happy to see that Angelica feels so loved by her current beau John Lloyd Cruz. “Siyempre. Nakikita ko yung mga posts niya sa Instagram. Kapag nagku-comment siya makikita mo lang talaga na okay siya. Basta masaya siya okay ako. Napakabait na kaibigan ni Angelica, napaka-cowboy at totoong tao siya. Sobrang kilala namin isa’t isa, alam namin kung kailan may problema. Pero nakikita ko naman kung gaano siya kasaya ngayon. Kaya wala naman kaming dapat pagusapan.”
They are still continuously taping advance episodes for Apoy Sa Dagat and he’s proud of how well Angelica has improved in terms of acting. “Masaya katrabaho si Angelica. She has matured a lot in acting. Professionally, makikita mo talaga pag-grow niya as an actress. It’s a delight working with her. Nasa week three na kami. So hopefully, makaabante kami, makapag-tape pa kami ng three more weeks bago kami umere. First quarter of the year magsisimula yung soap.”
