It has been about two years since viewers last saw actor John Estrada on ABS-CBN’s primetime slot, the last being the 2014 Coco Martin-Kim Chiu action-drama series Ikaw Lamang. He will soon be back as he takes on a different kind of role in the upcoming TV series, Never, Ever Say Goodbye.
Playing the character of a wealthy business tycoon named Juancho, John told PUSH.com.ph, “In the earlier part of the story, mag-asawa kami ni Gelli de Belen. We have a daughter tapos nahiwalay kami. That’s when I met ‘yung character ni Arci… I put Arci through school. Tapos hanggang sa dahil nga hiwalay na ako, niligawan ko siya, nag-asawa kami. We ended up marrying.”
However, unknown to his character Juancho, Arci’s role Arianne had a “past” with one of his employees, Waldo, played by actor Jericho Rosales. “Hindi ko alam na they had a past. Wala palang closure ‘yung relationship nila,” he said, adding that the story will revolve around Arianne and Waldo’s rekindled feelings.
Working with the whole cast, John said that he is excited. “This is the first time I worked with Arci and Gelli. I’ve worked with Jericho already. We all know naman how good of an actor Jericho is and I’ve seen Arci also act, I’ve seen Arci in Pasion de Amor. She’s really good so I’m excited.”
