After knowing love team partner Joross Gamboa for over 17 years now, Roxanne Guinoo said that they have always remained good friends even during the times when they were not in constant touch. Despite parting ways in 2006 after dating for two years, Roxane only had good things to say about her Hoy Love You co-star.

“Hindi naman kami constantly na nagkukuwentuhan or nag-uusap, by group lang kami. Pero once na nagkita kami, parang walang nagbago. Parang normal lang, usap lang kami kuwentuhan. Wala ng dapat i-adjust,” she said.

Now happily married with three children, Roxanne said it was no issue with her husband about her being reunited onscreen with a former flame. She also credited Joross for respecting her boundaries as well.

“Prior to that na alam na ni Joross yun, binibigay niya sa akin yung respect para magtanong ng, ‘Rox, okay ba na gawin natin ito, ganito ganyan?’ Sa tingin ko walang naging problema. And magkaroon man, iba kasi yung mga asawa namin ni Joross, mga non-showbiz sila. So there are certain things na siguro possible na hindi nila maiintindihan. Ang key lang to that is to explain mo lang sa kanila ng maayos and ipaunawa mo sa kanila. Kasi may mga bagay na hindi rin talaga nila maiintindihan yung mga ginaagwa ng mga artista. Importante lang yung communication,” she shared.

Thanks to Hoy Love You director Theodore Boborol, Roxanne said she and Joross were able to find the right blend for comedy and romance in the second season of their digital series.

“Well guided din naman kami nila direk especially si direk medyo tino-tone down niya kami. Kahit kumbaga ilang years na kami sa industry, binabalanse din talaga ni direk especially ako kasi mas linagay ako sa drama so minsan may attack ako na napapa-drama. Aalalayan ako ni direk and even Joross so yun yung masaya dun,” she said.

During the first season of the show, Roxanne admitred that she and Joross did not expect fans of “Jorox” would give them such a strong show of support after all these years.

“Actually, sobrang na-o-overwhelm kami ni Joross kasi yung fan base naman namin hindi kasing laki gaya nung mga kasabayan naming love teams before. Siguro ang naging susi para mag-work yung team up is yung rapport nandun, yung friendship. Yung respect sa isa’t isa hindi nawala. So yung bawat eksena na ginagawa namin nandun pa rin yung ways na mapag-usapan paano namin i-a-attack and siguro nandun na yung ewan ko ba hindi ko hindi ko ma-explain, siguro dahil may pinagsamahan din kami before and na-maintain namin yung pagiing magkaibigan. Kaya hindi din nawala yung magical effect ng love team namin.

“Masaya na ganun yung feedback na nag-wo-work kasi kami hindi na namin tinitingnan na effective pa ba kami. Yung kumbaga pag naririnig na lang namin siya, natutuwa na lang kami na nag-wo-work pa yung love team namin. Kasi parang tinitingnan namin ito as a group eh, hindi lang basta yung JoRox na love team. Parang pinasok namin itong show na ‘to parang as Hoy Love You family, parang oo kami yung fumu-front pero parang mas excited kami gawin ‘to not just dahil Jorox love team ito but because kasama yung cast,” she explained.
