Carlo Aquino admitted that he feels thankful yet pressured to be part of the upcoming ABS-CBN soap Flordeliza. Carlo will be working with Marvin Agustin and Jolina Magdangal in the said teleserye. “Siyempre grateful kasi after Annaliza, March ‘yun natapos. Ito naman ako Flordeliza lahat ng ‘liza’ gagawin ko na. Siyempre merong pressure but ayon pressure is good di ba kasama talaga ‘yan sa trabaha na napre-pressure ka nastre-stress ka pero ini-enjoy ko kasi kasama ko nga sina Jolina at Marvin,” he stated.
During the grand presscon of the soap, the actor confessed that he had a crush on Jolina before. “Alam niya ‘yun matagal na. Mga 13 years old pa ako pero crush lang naman, ano ba naman yun,” he said. Carlo shared that he found Jolina adorable way back when he was still a teenager. “Nakakatuwa kaya. Ang ganda niyang tingnan sa screen tapos ‘yung humor niya, nakakatawa kasi siya,” he said about Jolina.
With old love teams being reunited, is he open to working again with Angelica Panganiban? “Oo naman sobrang magkaibigan kami ni Angel (Angelica) nakapag MMK (Maalaala Mo Kaya) na kami so sana hopefully next year kung mabibigyan ng chance gagawin ko talaga.” When asked if what genre of show would he want to do with Angelica, Carlo relayed, “Dramedy (drama-comedy) para iba naman kasi usually pag nag-MMK kami drama-drama mas maganda kung medyo light,” he said.
Carlo remarked that he is truly happy with how his career is running at the moment. “Nabakante ako ng six or seven months pero nag-MMK ako, nag-Ipaglaban Mo ako. Sobrang grateful sa ABS(CBN) kasi tinanggap nila ako ulit.”
He also commented on the rumors that his friend John Prats is planning to transfer to another network. “Kung sa tingin niya makakaganda o makakabauti sa career niya okay lang. Happy ako dito [sa ABS-CBN] dito muna ako,” he said.
