Daniel Padilla admitted that he used to watch Richard Gutierrez’s show many years ago. Richard felt happy that somehow he was able to inspire one of this generation’s biggest actors and his co-star in the upcoming series La Luna Sangre.
“Maraming salamat kay Daniel. Natutuwa ako na ‘yung mga nagawa ko before na shows napanood niya and kahit papaano na-inspire ko rin siya so masarap ang pakiramdam na may effect na ganon. And I’m sure si Daniel ngayon sa posisyon niya in the future ganon din ang magiging effect niya sa mga future stars. Siguro it’s just passing on the torch di ba? So nakakatuwa lang,” Richard said.
Richard expressed his elation about working not only with Daniel but also with Kathryn Bernardo in the series. “Alam naman natin this generation sila talaga ‘yung ultimate love team so I am happy that I am working with them,” he stated.
As one of the biggest matinee idols of the previous generation, Richard has some important advice for the Kapamilya love team. “Siyempre at this point in their lives marami silang ma-meet na mga tao, huwag lang nila malilimutan ‘yung mga taong nakatulong sa kanila in the past and just to stay humble and God-fearing.”
Richard also considers it as a blessing that he is able to work again with his former onscreen partner Angel Locsin. Asked about the other stars he wants to collaborate with in the future on the Kapamilya network, he replied, “Ngayon answered prayer na agad dahil si Angel nakasama ko kaagad, siyempre si John Lloyd (Cruz), si KathNiel and direk Cathy Garcia-Molina siya ang director namin, as of now I am very thankful sa project na ito. Siyempre marami pa akong gustong makatrabaho in the future pero ngayon focus muna ako dito.”
