Neil is also close to co-star Erich Gonzales, whom he considers a good friend along with Coco. “Super close kami. Actually kami ang laging magka-eksena, ako, si Coco at si Erich. So minsan nagbo-bonding kami, like badminton, lumalabas. Pag sa set sobrang kulitan. Pagkatrabaho, trabaho. Pero pagkalabas, wala, parang naglalaro lang. ‘Yun nagwowork kami, tapos magandang bonding yung samahan,” he said.
Moreover, he said that as time passes by their friendship is getting stronger than ever. “Basta lalong tumatagal, mas lalong lumalalim, mas nagiging komportable kami sa isa’t isa,” he shared.
