Donny Pangilinan has nothing but admiration for his "He's Into Her" leading lady Belle Mariano.
On "Tonight With Boy Abunda" last February 3, the "James and Pat and Dave" actor revealed that even though he’s only known his co-star for a couple of months, she’s become quite the inspiration for him.
“Working with her...it’s only been two months, but I can really say that she wants to be in this industry and she wants to prove herself,” Donny said.
Donny also sang praises for Belle’s dedication to her character in the upcoming iWant show.
“Lalo na po noong lumabas yung 'He's Into Her' cast, ang daming nagsasabi na she's not fit for the role so I think, she's very inspired to prove them wrong. I believe she can do that,” he said.
“If you are passionate about your work [like she is], nakaka-inspire po ‘yun,” he added.
Donny is also part of the much-awaited “Vince and Kath and James” sequel, “James and Pat and Dave” alongside Loisa Andalio and Ronnie Alonte. It is slated for release this February 12!
