"Actually lahat kami dito Chinese so we need to learn Mandarin so litong-lito na ako in life," the actress told ABS-CBN News.
One of the requisites for Erich Gonzales' role in her new television series Love Thy Woman is learning to speak Mandarin.
This she revealed during the show's story conference last Monday, April 8, as part of its star-studded cast. Erich, who will portray the half-sister of Kim Chiu's character, admitted that it has been a challenge for her to familiarize herself with the foreign language. "Actually lahat kami dito Chinese so we need to learn Mandarin so litong-lito na ako in life. Bisaya, Tagalog, English, Mandarin pa so Lord please help me," she told ABS-CBN News.
Aside from Erich and Kim, Love Thy Woman will star actors Xian Lim, Christopher de Leon, Eula Valdez, Sunshine Cruz, Zsa Zsa Padilla, and Ruffa Gutierrez.
The show is set to launch this coming May.
