Joseph Marco laughs off rumors romantically linking him to Ria Atayde


021217-JosephMarco_PUSH.jpgActor Joseph Marco signed a contract with ABS-CBN on Thursday, February 9. He said that he has a lot to look forward to like a movie with Star Cinema and his upcoming teleserye Wildflower with Maja Salvador.

According to Joseph, he is more daring in this soap than in the 2015 teleserye, Pasion de Amor. “Mas mapusok ‘to kasi I’m going to be paired with napakagaling na artistang si Maja Salvador and siyempre, parang dito, marami kaming kasamang mga veterans and somehow, ang taas ‘nung pressure to the point na kailangan ko talagang mag-step up. Marami silang aabangan. Maraming sexy scenes dito.”

Meanwhile, Joseph was also asked about his closeness to actress Ria Atayde.

“Kasi si Arjo (Atayde, Ria’s brother), best friend ko for the longest time and siya, siyempre, every time na nakakasama ko si Arjo, nandoon din siya. So parang naging best friend ko na rin siya. Actually, siya na nga lang yata ang babaeng close ako kasi wala ako masyadong close na babae so, tine-treasure ko talaga ‘yung friendship namin. Kaya sobrang nakakatawa naman ‘yun. Parang kapatid ko na si Ria,” he said.

When asked about how he feels that he is being romantically linked to Ria, he laughed and said, “Actually, natatawa lang ako kasi deep inside, alam niyo sa sarili niyo kung ano talaga. At saka, baka bugbugin ako ni Arjo.”
