EXCLUSIVE: Matt Evans reacts to rumors of James Reid playing Pedro Penduko


090216-matt_main.jpgWith rumors that James Reid is being eyed to play the role of Pedro Penduko, the former actor who once played the iconic character, Matt Evans, remarked that he believes James fits the role.

"Sobrang galing nong tao, tingin ko maitatayo niya 'yung show ng maayos tsaka 'yun nga tingin ko magi-explore na naman sila ng panibagong kwento kasi explorer talaga si Pedro Penduko so sa tingin ko malayo 'yung istoryang mararating nila dito," he said in an interview with Push.com.ph.

Matt hopes to work with James in this remake. "Sana makatrabaho ko si James, makasama ako sa show," he said.

Meanwhile Matt is set to star in the upcoming teleserye The Greatest Love.

"Nong umpisa, nong nilatag pa lang 'yung istroya sabi ko sana ma-cast ako kasi 'yun nga napakaganda ng istroya tapos 'yung character pa na dati na pinitch sa akin is 'yung gay role nga sabi ko sobrang challenging nito kasi dati may mga nagawa na akong gay role din pero 'yun para sa movie and romantic comedy, medyo light. This one sobrang heavy drama talaga so 'yun sobrang blessed na nabigay sa akin 'to at napasama sa project na 'to," he said.

On working with actress Sylvia Sanchez, the lead star of the show, he replied, "Isa pa sa pinakamagandang experience is 'yung napaka-open niya at grabe 'yung pagka-professional niya. Hindi ka lang basta matututo kundi magugulat ka na lang dahil nakakapagbigay ka rin ng magagandang input, alam mo 'yun nahahawa ka rin sa kanya," he said.
