Jodi, mas open na raw kay Richard ngayon!

JoChard is going strong!

“Sana Dalawa Ang Puso” star Richard Yap shared at his bloggers conference last May 23 that he and his leading lady Jodi Sta. Maria have an even better partnership than before.

“Jodi has been nothing but supportive, since dati pa [at] lalo na ngayon,” he said. “We’re very much open with each other. Nag-uusap kami kahit hindi na wala kami sa eksena. Minsan nagkukuwentuhan lang kami. The communication is there, the openness is there. Actually, mas naging open nga si Jodi now than before.”

He revealed that he continues to discover new things about the actress, like her talent for comedy.

“Jodi can go through a whole lot of emotions. Dati kasi, she used to think that she was just a dramatic actress, and then she discovered this side that she can use in comedy. Ngayon, nahahalo-halo na niya lahat,” he shared.

Despite being by Jodi’s side once again, he admitted that he feels pressure in living up to the title of “Daytime King.”

“There was some pressure nung sinabihan kami na babalik kami sa timeslot na ‘to. Of course, people were expecting a lot from us,” he said. “The viewership has changed, the landscape has changed, kasi ang mga bata ngayon, hindi na nanonood ng TV. Kumonti ang nanonood ng TV because they’re watching a lot of Netflix, iFlix, ‘yung mga ganun. We feel that hindi kasing dami ang nanonood ng TV ngayon compared to dati pero we’re still thankful na nakukuha namin ‘yung ratings that we’re expecting.”

And because of the success of their previous show “Be Careful With My Heart” (2012), people can’t help but compare Richard’s two roles, Sir Chief and Martin Co.

When asked if he believes Martin will be as iconic a character as Sir Chief, Richard said, “Hopefully.”

“Medyo napapalitan na ‘yung Sir Chief - marami na rin ang tumatawag sa ‘kin ng Sir Martin,” he revealed with a laugh. “It means that they’ve associated the character with me, and hopefully makukuha din natin ‘yung affinity nila sa character.”

That said, Richard couldn’t say if “Sana Dalawa Ang Puso” will end up being as long as “Be Careful.”

“I cannot say kasi ang hirap pantayan ang ‘Be Careful’ because that was really unexpected. We don’t have expectations for this one, pero so far, medyo humahaba naman ‘yung story nito. May chance,” he said.

Don’t miss Richard and Jodi in “Sana Dalawa Ang Puso” weekdays before “It’s Showtime”!
