"Hello, Stranger" stars Tony Labrusca and JC Alcantara were put in the hot seat after they were asked if it was at all possible for them to fall in love with the characters of the Black Sheep series.
Speaking to Toni Gonzaga for the July 12 episode of "I Feel U," Tony admitted that it's possible for him to actually fall for Mico, the role JC is portraying.
"Yes, that's possible," he said.
"Siguro ang importante, if you don’t want to lose your sense of self, you need to keep going back to your core so that you can separate your character from yourself. Kasi that’s very possible naman eh if you’re always immersed in being in love with this person,” he explained.
He continued, "Kasi as an actor, means kapag sobrang invested ka sa role mo, baka minsan you lose your sense of self. Kasi some people go overboard with their character."
JC, on the other hand, agreed with Tony, saying that love is a feeling you can't control.
“Para sa akin kasi, si Mico dito, straight siya pero hindi niya inaakala na mai-in love siya sa isang kagaya ni Xavier. Hindi rin natin alam 'yung universe or 'yung tadhana na someday if ma-meet ko yung kagaya ni [Xavier] na ma-in love ako sa kanya, kasi hindi mo naman mapipigilan 'yung feelings na ma-in love ka, eh, lalo na kapag napalapit ka sa kanya tapos naramdaman mo na gusto mo pala siya,” he said.
