John Lloyd Cruz shared that he was at ease working with the cast of Nathaniel. In an interview with the actor at the book signing of One More Chance, he relayed that everything went smoothly from the very beginning.
"Sobra akong nag-enjoy don. Napakabait nila, napakagaan nilang katrabaho. Tsaka ano eh may respeto sila sa mga artista, sa mga tao nila and it's the kind of set na gusto mong mapabilang," he said.
He added that the cast was fun to be with. "Pag nandon ka sa set nila napakasaya, napakagaan nila kasama. Napakagaan at napaka-fluid lang ng trabaho. Ako maswereteng maswerte ako na na-experience ko 'yung show na 'yun."
When asked if he had hesitations joining the soap considering the fact that his former girlfriend Shaina Magdayao is part of it, he responded, "Wala na naman 'yun. We're all grown ups. Ang tagal na non at wala naman talagang issue eh. Actually nong nag-decide ako na mag-offer ako ng trabaho na 'Sige pwede ba akong maging part ng Nathaniel?' Actually hindi ko naisip na 'Oops, oo nga pala nandiyan si Shaina.' Wala na po talaga yun eh na hindi na siya."
He stressed that they are on good terms and Shaina was the one who actually said hello to him first when he arrived on the set. "Eh pagdating ko hindi ko siya nakita, siya pa 'yung nag-welcome sa akin sa set nila."
