Kim Chiu is one supportive partner!
Her perennial on-and-off-screen leading man Xian Lim revealed that Kim actually encouraged him to take on his newest project "Sin Island", which tackles the nuances of marriage and infidelity, themes that are much more mature than that of his past films.
He said at the "Sin Island" Grand Media Launch last February 12, "Sa mga ginagawa naming projects, hindi naman kami 'yung type [ni Kim] na nangingialam sa ginagawa ng isa't isa."
In spite of their personal relationship, Xian says that they both push each other to take opportunities that could make them better artists.
He explained, "Masaya kami when we get to express ourselves and every time na may trabaho kami, doon talaga nagbo-blow up 'yung passion namin [when] we're doing something different. Or [when we ask ourselves how we can reinvent ourselves]. Ganoon po kami."
Kim and Xian last worked together in the 2015 film "All You Need is Pag-ibig" and the 2016 teleserye "The Story of Us".
"Sin Island" is directed by Gino M. Santos and also stars Nathalie Hart and Coleen Garcia.
