With the long-awaited return of their highly-successful love team, Jericho Rosales is very hopeful that fans will enjoy his upcoming TV series Ikaw Lamang with Kristine Hermosa. “I’m very excited about working with Kristine.
Actually last year pa yun. Sabi ko talaga I want to work with her again because I’m ready to work with her again. Kasi I took a break from the love team. I just concentrated on working with a different leading lady (last year’s Kahit Isang Saglit with Malaysian actress Carmen Soo) and did projects that didn’t require a love team.
I think naman that I was able to get and experience what I wanted to experience. So now, since the followers of Kristine and Jericho are still there and so excited, it’s about time to pay [our] respects to them and say, ‘Let’s do this for them,’ parang ganun, ‘di ba?” he shares. Five years after their last TV project Sana’y Wala Nang Wakas, Jericho admits that a lot has changed between him and his ex-flame.
“Right now, I also admire Kristine. Unlike before, we were so immature, pareho kami. But now, she’s a more mature actor and there are so many good things about her and I’ve noticed na all the immaturity went away,” he shares.
The 29-year-old singer-actor has also been very vocal about his admiration for new Kapamilya Karylle, who also joins them in the cast of Ikaw Lamang. But Echo is confident that the fans will not object to their love triangle in the soap opera. “I don’t think our followers are like that naman. I don’t want to think that their attitude is like that. I’m hoping that they are very supportive and very nice people, kind people,” he says.
