Pancho and Max ready to have a baby after moving to new home
The Kapuso network’s new afternoon series, “Dahil sa Pag-ibig” (airs weekdays after “Bihag”), is a riveting tale about vengeance, the sacrifices of OFWs and the family they left behind, love and betrayal.
It is topbilled by Winwyn Marquez, Sanya Lopez, Benjamin Alves and Pancho Magno.
Ah! The things we do for love and what it does to us.
Here’s my chat with Pancho:
Tell us about your role and in what way can you relate to it? My character’s name is Gary, who is Mariel’s (Sanya Lopez) ex-boyfriend. She caught me in bed with someone on our anniversary, so that made her despise me. She was really disgusted, so our breakup was bad.
I relate to my character because he shows how one loves so deeply that he can’t let go. It’s all about the things we regret doing.
How will your show make us understand the plight of OFWs more? We can’t really know the sadness, depression and longing of a person [who’s] away from his/her loved ones.
Since you work with beautiful women, how do you stay away from temptation? I build rapport and a good working relationship with them. The more I know them, the more relaxed I am to do intimate scenes. But my mindset is always on work mode so I don’t get carried away.
What makes your marriage with Max Collins work? I always make sure to spend time with her.
As much as possible, we don’t use our phones and try not to talk about work-related topics whenever we’re together.
When do you and Max plan to have kids? We are set to move to a bigger home. As soon as we are settled, the baby would come next. We want to have three to four kids.
How do you and Max handle it when both of you are paired with someone else? We study the depth of our characters, but we know our limitations.
How do you handle misunderstandings? We pray and always thank God for all the blessings. There is no need to argue because we’re so blessed.
Zion turns 6
Richard Gutierrez, Sarah Lahbati and their adorable son Zion had a belated celebration of the kid’s sixth birthday in Hong Kong Disneyland.
According to my son Ice (who was with them), Zion is so well-behaved and very affectionate. He also noticed that Chard and Sarah are hands-on parents.
The former does the ‘spoiling,’ while the latter is in charge of disciplining the child.
Even with Zion around, the couple still seemed like honeymooners.
Don’t burn bridges
The Jimmy Bondoc/ABS-CBN brouhaha gives local show biz a bad name.
Ugliness has no place in the world of glitz and glamour. Whether we are a Kapamilya, Kapatid or Kapuso, we must not burn bridges.
Be kind to the people you meet on your way up because they are the same people you will meet on your way down.
Instead of fighting with each other, why don’t we just fight for the industry that nurtured us all these years?
