In the new drama series Init Sa Magdamag, Alexa Ilacad plays the role of Hannah Salcedo, younger sister of Tupe Salcedo played by Gerald Anderson.
“I’m a very young liberated woman. So I love very hard and isa akong kuya’s girl. Pero makikita natin ang pagbabago sa buhay ni Hannah pagsimula ng bubog at trauma na nangyari sa past nila. Pero magbabago yun pag nakilala niya si Kiko (Gab Lagman),” she shared.
Alexa said she hopes viewers will enjoy her new onscreen love team which also has a good storyline in the series.
“Sa kuwento namin as Hannah and Kiko, their story really amazes me. It’s very K-drama-ish personally yun yung take ko sa kanya. Ang ganda ng kuwento nila kasi yung love na in-express nila, as you watch it, it’s very unconditional love. Second layer kami dito so kami yung a bit lighter, kami yung kilig factor. Siya yung nagpapakilig ng buhay ni Hannah dito and all of that. Yung kuwento namin is very cute, for me it’s very It’s Okay To Not Be Okay. I’m very excited for people to see it and sana ma-enjoy nila,” she explained.
Alexa thanked their directors for bringing out the “kilig” moments in their scenes together.
“It’s my first time to work with Gab. I really, really appreciate his willingness to learn. His openness to learn, it made things a lot easier. Working with Gab is a fun experience. He’s very open. Tinatanggap niya yung criticism na binibigay sa kanya. And dun naman sa pag-build ng chemistry namin, I think we both owe it to direk Ian (Lorenos) and direk Raymond (Ocampo) and to the whole staff kasi talagang trinatrabaho nila na gumanda yung mga scenes namin and kami naman we do our part and nagtutulungan kami. And during our rest days, we try to bond more and get to know each other more para pag napanuod niyo sa screen very seamless. Cute lang, sweet lang kami,” she explained.
During their Init Sa Magdamag media launch, Alexa also revealed what she finds sexy about Gab. “Para sa akin, what makes Gab sexy is his mind. He’s a gentleman. of course obviously he is sexy malamang. But I like the way his mind works. Ang ganda niyang ka-kuwentuhan kasi he’s very open, he’s attentive, he listens and may sense kausap. You see that he cares when he speaks and when he listens,” she said.
