With her teleserye La Vida Lena all set to premiere on June 28, lead actress Erich Gonzales said she is proud to take on the dual role of Lena and Magda in the revenge-themed drama series.

“Nung prinesent sa akin yung kuwento nagustuhan ko talaga siya. It’s something na hindi ko pa talaga nagagawa before. Yung story hindi lang talaga siya revenge, punong puno siya ng puso. Nandun pa rin yung core nating mga Pilipino, yung pamilya. Sino ba naman ang hihindi sa ganitong klaseng project di ba? And grateful tayo sa patuloy na pagtitiwala sa atin ng ABS-CBN and ng Dreamscape. Wala namang imposible kung lahat kami nagtutulungan. Kami tulong tulong lahat talaga,” she said.

In preparation for her role, Erich said the La Vida Lena cast already had did a lot of leg work online.

“Prior to our lock-in taping namin, nandun yung mga Zoom meetings namin with sila direk. Nagkaroon rin kami ng script reading para mas suwabe na pagdating sa set. Meron din tayong mga pa-fashion dito. Nag-fit na rin tayo ng mga damit, mga costumes, ganyan. Basically ang challenge lang talaga is first time ko talaga gawin yung ganito, yung lock-in. Thank God naging maganda yung ating experience dito sa ating unang lock-in taping,” she shared.

Working with her new leading men JC De Vera and Carlo Aquino was also an easy experience for Erich who described both men as talented actors.

“Alam mo na kagad na magaan. Yung aura pa lang nila good vibes na agad. And napaka-gentleman nila. Silang lahat gentleman. Alalay sila especially sa mga eksena na medyo physical. Hindi naman natin maiiwasan pag rinequire ng kuwento. they’re very professional and gentlemen talaga sila lahat so naging magaan at smooth talaga lahat sa taping namin,” she explained.

But between the two actors, Erich said that JC’s role made him more intense onscreen.

“Character-wise, I must say JC’s character si Adrian yun yung pinaka intense talaga. But meron silang kanya-kanyang kumbaga shining moment. Dito walang sapawan, kumbaga if this is his time to shine, walang mang-aagaw na sasapawan siya. Na-plantsa na yun nila direk,” she added.
