Luis Manzano on working with GF Angel Locsin: We’re professionals
How does Luis Manzano feel about working with his girlfriend Angel Locsin in one show?
“We still have to be professional. First and foremost that’s the most important thing,” said the actor and host in an interview on Tuesday during the red carpet event of the talent reality show “Pilipinas Got Talent.”
Manzano will reprise his role as the host of the show, with Billy Crawford as his partner.
Locsin, meanwhile, will sit on the judging panel together with her cojudges actor Robin Padilla, comedian Vice Ganda and star builder Freddie Garcia.
Two years ago, Manzano revealed the reason why he turned down an offer to join his mother, veteran actress and Batangas Gov. Vilma Santos, and Locsin in a movie project.
He said it would be too personal for him to work with two important women in his life.
But it looks like Luis is slowly letting go of his reservations.
“Nagkataon na pinili kami to work together. Besides the relationship or anything else, we are professionals,” he reiterated.
Manzano said the spotlight should be on the contestants, not his relationship with Locsin.
“I think it’s the proper thing na sila dapat bumida dito, hindi yung mga relationship namin sa isa’t isa. Pinaghirapan nila ito, sila ang bida,” he said. RC
