John Lloyd Cruz is now busy working on the sequel of One More Chance with Bea Alonzo. According to the actor, he is still familiarizing himself with the new characterization of his role as Popoy. “Siyempre lahat naman ng pelikula or kahit ano na nagsisimula, medyo siyempre hindi pa masyadong familiar, hindi pa second skin,” he said.
With fans already excited about the sequel to the 2007 blockbuster film, John Lloyd has a reminder for them. “Huwag muna masyadong mataas ang expectations kasi actually mahirap eh [dahil] you’re talking about eight years magmula nong nakita [ang movie] ng mga tao,” he stated. The actor hopes that moviegoers will appreciate how the story has come to evolve. “We’re hoping na kung ano man ‘yung nagawa namin and kung saan man nadala ‘yung istorya sana magustuhan nila,” he said.
John Lloyd’s girlfriend Angelica Panganiban’s career is also soaring to greater heights playing the role of Claudia Buenavista in Pangako Sa’yo. Though John Lloyd admitted that he rarely sees the show on the television because of his hectic schedule, he knows that it is such a successful series. “I know it is such a successful show pero ako I’ve been working on ‘yung bago naming movie ni Bea and hindi tayo medyo nakakapanood ng TV lately.”
Angelica, who was also present during the interview, admitted that the scenes are getting more challenging as the days go by in the primetime series. She said that she enjoys working with her co-stars especially with Jodi Sta. Maria (Amor Powers) who she commended as a great actress. “Well so far medyo mas mahirap na ‘yung mga scenes na ginagawa namin and nakakaaliw naman. Ako so far nai-enjoy ko kasi sobrang sarap katrabaho nong mga kasama ko don lalong lalo na si Jodi talagang sobrang giving na artista,” she stated.
The actress remarked that she is truly grateful to be part of the show. “[Habang] patagal ng patagal naman ‘yung hirap napapalitan naman siya ng excitement, na sobra kang grateful na sobrang daming sumusuporta.”
