Obviously, James Reid and Nadine Lustre’s relationship is getting stronger in each passing day.
“In a scale of 1-10, it’s always a 10!” avers James.
Interestingly, Nadine loves the new traits she continuously discovers about her boyfriend.
“Yes, like his being strict when it comes to food, for example. When we were in America for our series of shows, it was expected that we were served sumptuous menus and I kind of over ate. All, including the not so healthy ones, you’ll be tempted to take.
“It’s good that his sister Lorenz was with us during that trip. She made sure that we’d eat healthy food. Salad was always available. Yes, we also had steak but in moderation. Generally, no oily and unhealthy food.
“James would also remind me every time to drink more water. That I should in fact increase my water intake since I have the tendency to eat a lot. It’s nice because he monitors and encourages me to drink water all the time. It simply helps that James is a health buff,” she reveals.
As for their next soap opera, the dusky young actress expresses her excitement since it’s a step higher than their previous offering, On the Wings of Love.
“That’s right! It’s a different material, more mature. We’ll also travel to other places to shoot scenes. The story will revolve on family and friendship. This early, I’m pitching it in to our fans. They will surely love it.”
Speaking of the fans, many are toying with the idea of a project, which she and Sarah Geronimo would top-bill.
“Yes, sure! Why not? For sure, it will be a great offering. I have high regards for Ate Sarah. I hope it materializes,” Nadine ends.
It’s been two years since Bea Alonzo starred in a soap opera via Sana Bukas Pa ang Kahapon. Now, she is busy preparing for her next grand offering called The Second Wife.
“Undoubtedly, I missed doing a soap. It’s still different when you are seen on prime time on a daily basis. It feels as if you’re part of their everyday lives. Especially those families who are living abroad and miss local TV programs,” says Bea.
Her new soap offers a new screen combination.
“I’ll be with Iza Calzado and Ian Veneracion here. It’s exciting because the public hasn’t seen us yet in a soap. First time. I’m really looking forward to the start of the taping. I’m certain it will be both fun and challenging knowing my two co-stars’ acting calibre.”
What’s the story about?
“Oh, it’s something close to us Filipinos—blended families in contemporary setting. It’s actually about the plight of the modern-day stepmother, how she deals with the complexities of her role. The soap will also present children of second families.
“Surely, this will be something heart-tugging to watch. This would appeal to the local audience. All of us in the cast which also includes Enchong Dee, Vin Abrenica and Julia Barretto are excited how Direk Jerry Lopez Sineneng would execute it. I know the characters are real and every Filipino family can relate to them,” avers Bea.
