JM de Guzman, 29, admitted that he instantly developed good rapport with leading lady Barbie Imperial, 19, even though it’s the first time they’ve worked together in the ABS-CBN afternoon series “Araw Gabi.”
He said that they’ve got such good onscreen chemistry that viewers have begun to root for them to become a couple in real life.
Referring to the first time he met Barbie at a screen test for the show, JM recalled, “Kinilig ako… Effortless ang chemistry.”
Now that they’ve gotten to know each other, JM described Barbie as “charming, magaan kasama, and malambing minsan.”
JM also noted how she brings out child-like qualities in him.
“Ang sakit sa ulo. Para akong bumalik sa grade school. Hindi pa ako naging ganito kakulit sa loob ng maraming taon.”
Asked if it’s possible for him to develop romantic feelings for Barbie, JM replied, “Basta kasi masarap, e. Masaya kasi siya ngayon. Masaya katrabaho, masaya maka-bond.
“So, ang sarap na i-maintain nang ganun. Minsan mapapaisip ka rin, ‘What if nga?’”
Then JM turned to Barbie, who was sitting beside him on the couch, and asked her, “Puwede ba? Single ka naman ngayon, di ba?”
Caught off guard by JM’s question, Barbie paused for a few seconds before she laughingly exclaimed, “Minsan talaga ang sarap sapakin ng mga pinapangunahan kang mag-announce, e, ‘no?” (Pep.ph)
