On Aquino and Abunda Tonight, Bela Padilla revealed how happy she was to finally be a Kapamilya again. “Iba. Maraming nagsasabi na iba ang aura ko ngayon na nakalipat na ako. Siguro dahil I’ve been waiting for this for so long kaya iba ang fulfillment.”
Bela said she auditioned for the role of the wife of Coco Martin’s character in FPJ’s Ang Probinsiyano. Bela shared she did a screen test and script reading with Coco. When she auditioned, Bela didn’t know that it was a screen test and that Coco was going to be there. When he suddenly showed up, Bela couldn’t believe it.
She admitted that Coco is her dream leading man because of his work ethics and because he is a brilliant actor. She also said her boyfriend doesn’t have a problem with her kissing scenes with Coco. “Neil (her boyfriend) is a film producer so he understands.”
Bela also recounted, “noong una naguluhan sa work ethics because they give everything. I had to step up.” Luckily, Bela said Coco guides her through their scenes.
