Erich Gonzales denies waiting for boyfriend to propose: “Huwag naman natin i-pressure’


100514-erich_main.jpgCurrently working on the upcoming remake of the hit Korean series Two Wives, Erich Gonzales said she is excited to play a different kind of role. “Nag-te-taping na kami ngayon and malapit na natin siya mapapanuod so sana abangan nila at suportahan nila.  It’s very different sa ibang mistress na story. Gustong gusto ko yung twist. Yung tunay na asawa magiging mistress tapos yung mistress magiging tunay na asawa. Tapos nung prinisent nila sa akin ito, nagustuhan ko naman yung material at excited ako gawin ito. Ibang role naman ito para sa akin. Kasi nung sinabi nila sa akin, bukod sa pag-explain nila maigi sa character ko, yung journey niya, ibang iba siya. Nagustuhan ko talaga siya,” she admitted during her SM Surplus store opening event in North EDSA held last October 3.

The Two Wives actress said she trusts the ABS-CBN management in giving her more mature roles. “Siyempre di ba sino ba naman ako para tumanggi sa trabaho? Ako naman gusto ko lang magtrabaho ng magtrabaho. Nung sinabi ni Ma’am Charo Santos na sana gawin ko, bakit naman ako tatanggi?” she said. The 24-year-old Filipina beauty said that there will be slight variations in the localized version of the Koreanovela. “Kahit naman sabihin natin na remake siya meron pa rin idadagdag diyan para maging mas Pinoy, mas magiging sariling atin pa rin di ba? At siyempre pag sinabi mong Pinoy version andun yung family values, at iba pang traits ng Pinoy na i-a-add nila doon,” she added.

In the new series, Erich’s love interest is Jason Abalos. The two have already shot intimate scenes for the show. She said her current boyfriend is not bothered at all with this aspect of her job. “Siyempre kapag may asawa ka meron namang mga lambingan scenes, ganyan. Nag-mamature tayo di ba? So alam naman niya yun na kasabay nun na yung mga projects na ginagawa ko nag-ma-mature din. Hindi naman pa-cute ka lang or mag-stay ka lang dun sa isa,” she explained.


100514-erich_main.jpgThe SM Surplus endorser said the show has already taught her some important life lessons. “Siguro kasi lahat tayo umiibig tapos pinapaglaban natin and siyempre umaasa tayo so dun may mga lessons tayong matututunan dito. It’s really a family story. Hindi siya yung relationship lang, family story talaga siya. Siyempre masaya kapag gumagawa ka ng project na parang nakaka-relate ka or may kapareho sa iyo sa totoong buhay pero it’s also a challenge na gumawa ng bagay na ang layo layo sa totoo mong personality,” she said.

When it comes to her real life relationship, Erich said she is not ready to be married and that her more than three-year relationship with her non-showbiz beau is still going steady. “Siguro darating naman yun kung pareho na kaming ready di ba? Huwag naman natin i-pressure na porke’t parang uso siya ngayon gagawin na. Merong mga tamang time and panahon for that. It doesn’t really matter how big or small yung proposal. Kung galing naman sa heart mo, kung sincere ka, then you’ll feel it then mapapa-oo ka naman siguro (laughs)” she said.

Apart from her new series, Erich said she would like to focus on other things aside from settling down right now. “Alam din naman ni boyfriend na hindi pa ako ready ngayon. Marami pa akong gustong gawin sa buhay and he’s just there para sumuporta at maghihintay siya. Supportive talaga siya ever since,” she added.
