After renewing her contract with ABS-CBN last month, Francine Diaz said she is happy to be working with fellow Gold Squad members (which includes Andrea Brillantes, Kyle Ecchari, and Seth Fedelin) on their new soap Huwag Kang Mangamba.
“Thankful ako na kasama ko sila sa lahat since day one and hanggang ngayon magkakasama pa rin kami inaabot namin yung mga pangarap namin. Ang sarap maging kapamilya kasi dito ang bahay ko, dito ang pamilya ko. Ito ang pamilya ko kaya masarap maging kapamilya,” she said.
After being paired with Kyle in the hit ABS-CBN series Kadenang Ginto, Francine said she was happy to see their love team reunited again this year. Kyle also surprised her with a sweet video greeting during the Kapamilya Strong contract-signing event. “Natuwa ako kasi minsan lang kami mag-usap na parang, ‘I’m so proud of you,’ ganyan. So every time na may video greeting kami sa isa’t isa, talagang alam namin na sincere kami sa sinasabi namin,” she admitted.
After working together for more than two years, Francine said that Kyle is one of her best friends whom she kept in touch with even during the lockdown last year.
“Kami kasi ni Kyle during lockdown as in hindi kami lumalabas. Nag-uusap naman kami, nagkakamustahan pero meron kasi kaming sinet na goal nung quarantine na mas mag-se-spend kami ng time na kasama ang mga kapatid at family namin. Pero hindi pa rin nawawala yung kamustahan and I think yun yung mas mahalaga dahil for us hindi naman nasusukat sa friendship yung communication. Kapag hindi kayo nag-uusap, hindi naman siya dun nasusukat. Kasi kapag may problema naman sa amin, talagang nandun kami nagdadamayan,” she added.
