For blockbuster director Cathy Garcia-Molina, Enrique Gil and Daniel Padilla are incomparable. She could say so because she has already worked with Daniel on the teleserye “Got To Believe” and in the movie “She’s Dating The Gangster,” while she currently helms her first project with Enrique, “Forevermore.”
“Kilala naman natin kung ano ang packaging ni Daniel Padilla. Daniel Padilla, in fact para sa akin sumikat siya kasi na-miss natin ang isang parang Robin Padilla. Quen is no Robin Padilla, Quen is no Daniel Padilla,” stresses Direk Cathy during a recent interview.
Meanwhile, she has yet to find Enrique’s brand via “Forevermore,” which will be the latter’s first TV project with his latest leading lady Liza Soberano.
“Enrique is Enrique. He has his own brand kumbaga,” she adds. “Right now, I may not be able to tell you kung ano ba talaga ang brand ni Enrique. It’s going to be my first time to work with Enrique. But right now, for me, he’s a boy next door, a pretty boy.”
Having a pretty face may be a strong factor to be a top matinee idol however, Direk Cathy wants to prove to the viewers that Enrique could give more.
“Isa sa mga goals natin siyempre na ipakita natin sa audience na Enrique is more than just a pretty face, that he has more to give,” she explains. “Si Quen kasi nag-eexperiment pa kami how to make him different from all the shows that he had in the past.”
And Direk Cathy, for her part, couldn’t be more willing to help Enrique hone his acting skills because he has shown her his hunger to learn.
"Natuwa ako sa nakita ko, sa nakausap ko. Ang batang to pala andun pa sa mode na 'Direk ang dami ko pang gustong matutunan. I know that I have so much to learn and to find out' and sabi ko 'that's all I need, that's really all I need,’” says Direk Cathy as she recounts her first conversation with Enrique.
Asked to describe the theme of “Forevermore,” Direk Cathy replies, “It’s about second chances. The pilot is very far from what the show really is.”
The pilot episode will air this October 27 on ABS-CBN.
