Almost three years since her last teleserye project on the Kapamilya network, Erich Gonzales said she is more than ready to headline another exciting new drama series.
“Kasi yung The Blood Sisters feeling ko talagang naubos tayo dun so ako naman when it comes to mga accepting projects, hindi lang tayo basta nag-a-accept ng sige na puwede na ‘to. I make sure na pag gagawa ako ng isang proyekto, I’m 100% there and my heart is there talaga so ayaw natin yung half-hearted tayo na ginagawa yung isang bagay. Dumating itong La Vida Lena and super 100% ready na to do our best para sa project na ito. So tamang timing lang,” she shared.
In La Vida Lena, Erich gets paired with three men who all enter the life of her characters Magda and Lena at different times. In real life, Erich said she did not have a hard time working with her new leading men JC de Vera, Kit Thompson, and Carlo Aquino. “Si JC nakatrabaho ko na siya dati. Si Kit namin first time namin magkatrabaho. Then with Carlo naman, ito yung first time naming magkatrabaho para sa isang ABS-CBN project,” she added.
Before starting work on La Vida Lena, Erich said she made sure to really prepare and to build chemistry with all her screen partners. “Effort siguro just to get to know the person para makatulong din pagdating sa taping na wala na kayong kailangan. Usap usap and get to know each other more. I guess hindi lang bagong leading man or bagong project, I think it’s my responsibility na alamin yung character at talagang paghandaan yung isang proyekto. Depende sa kung aong hihilingin ng story, ng direktor, yun yung ibibigay ko,” she explained.
Singling out one of her co-stars, Erich said she had to help bring Carlo Aquino out of his shell because of his shy personality in real life. “Sobrang tahimik niya. Hindi mo alam na nandiyan pala siya. Hindi mo na-fi-feel. Ganyan siya nung una diyuskolord. Para siyang hangin. Ganun lang siya. During break times also, naglalaro kami ng Call of Duty. Habang nagpapatayan, kuwento kuwento, ganyan. I think dun lumalabas yung pagkakulit niya rin,” she said.
