EXCLUSIVE: Carlo Aquino says he wants to work again with Vilma Santos


022416-carlo_main.jpgCarlo Aquino will be part of the new Kapamilya soap We Will Survive. The actor remarked that he is ecstatic about being part of the "feel-good" show. "Siyempre masarap 'yung pakiramdam kasi isa 'to sa mga una kong ginawa na feel good lang, hindi siya drama-drama so excited ako kasi this is a first for me," he said in an interview with Push.com.ph

Carlo will be playing the role of Pocholo who will be the love interest of Melai Cantiveros's character. "Isa akong salesman sa isang beer company, Blue Beer yata 'yung pangalan so 'yun nag-cross 'yung landas namin ni Melai, si Maricel, dahil nadestino ako sa Legazpi, tapos nagbebenta ako don tapos na-meet ko siya. Siya 'yung nag-tour sa akin. 'Yung time na 'yun parehas kaming broken hearted, siya broken hearted, tapos 'yung role ko broken hearted so parang natuwa kami sa isa't isa tapos don nagsimula ang amusement namin sa company ng isa't isa," he stated.

The actor said that he is enjoying working with Melai. "Si Melai sobrang punong-puno ng energy, laging ang daming sinasabi, kahit anong oras 'yan simula umaga hanggang sa makarating kami ng madaling araw consistent 'yung energy niyan so talagang madadamay ka, lagi ka lang masaya sa set, ang gaan," he stated.

Carlo previously starred in the drama serye Flordeliza. He said that the working experience in We Will Survive is different compared to his previous role. "Iba eh kasi kapag sa drama lalo na sa taping hindi ako masyadong nakikipagbiruan, lagi akong naka-concentrate lang eh. Dito para kaming naglalaro, ang saya-saya pero siyempre trabaho pa rin," he said. 

When asked if there is a dream project that he wants to do this year, he replied, "Gusto ko ulit makatrabaho si mommy V (Vilma Santos). Siguro comedy-drama na parang Everything About Her na feel good sa umpisa tapos pabigat ng pabigat, parang ganon. 'Yun parang comedy-comedy na may punchline-punchline, tapos may drama na may hugot."

The last time Carlo worked with Vilma was in 1998 in the critically-acclaimed film Bata, Bata Paano Ka Ginawa? Where their argument scene left a mark on moviegoers.
