With his comeback project in acting now only days away, Piolo Pascual said he is proud of his latest sweetcom with new leading lady Pia Wurtzbach.
“She’s a revelation actually in this show. We were worried kasi nung pagpasok niya nakapag-one day na kami. Pero she went straight into the character and talaga namang napapapalakpak pa kami sa kanya minsan kasi Miss Universe siya pero sobrang game niya. May sugat siya. Kumbaga she let her hair down. Binigay niya dito. Napakasarap niya ka-eksena. Napakasarap panuorin,” he admitted.
With the excitement building up for his latest kapamilya series now on an all-time high, Piolo refused to take all the credit and opted to share the limelight with his other co-stars and director Cathy Garcia-Molina.
“Lagi ko ngang sinasabi na the magic is not with me, it’s with them. Ako lang yung taga-capture, yung taga-mount. So kung ano man yung nakita niyo dun, tama tumulong ako pero sila talaga yun. Si direk Cathy matagal na kasi kaming magkatrabaho eh. So siyempre it’s an opportunity. We’ve always wanted to work together pero parang madaming projects na hindi matuloy tuloy. So ayun nga finally we get to do something like this and for sure one of these days we’ll still be able to do a film together kasi yun ang talagang pangako namin sa isa’t isa so mangyayari yun,” he said.
With ABS-CBN still without a franchise this year, Piolo said he is open to the possibility of doing projects with other networks.
“As long as there’s no conflict. My deal naman with ABS-CBN is as long as hindi siya conflict sa shows mo with ABS-CBN then I don’t think it’s going to matter. And as long as the concept is good. Pero for now, I’m just going to bask in whatever I have right now with ABS-CBN because I have so many shows that I’m working on. So I don’t think I have the time for that in the near future,” he said.
As one of the founders and producers of Spring Films, Piolo said acting in ABS-CBN will always be his top priority. “This is my home. So more than producing shows for any platform, iba pa rin yung mother studio mo yung nag-produce. But year ongoing pa rin yung projects ko,” he added.
Aside from My Papa Pi, Piolo is also starring in the Philippine remake of the South Korean series Flower of Evil with actress Lovi Poe which is set for release later this year.
