Cameras are already rolling for the upcoming series “Hello, Heart” starring veteran actor Gerald Anderson and RISE artist Gigi de Lana.
In a report by ABS-CBN News, Gerald and Gigi happily shared how they feel about working on this new project together.
Full of excitement for her first lead role, Gigi confessed that she’s also a bundle of nerves especially to be working with a seasoned actor like Gerald.
“Nung narinig ko 'yung offer na magkakaroon ako ng serye, nagulat ako. Totoo ba 'to? Sa puso ko excited, kabado. First time ko, eh. Ang partner ko pa Gerald, ang tagal na nito. Mai-intimidate ako kahit di ko pa siya nakikita,” she said.
Despite feeling tense, Gigi still managed to show her true self on set, saying, “Kinabahan ako. Paano kaya 'to? Seryoso kaya ito? Pero pinakita ko pa rin 'yung totoong ako. 'Yung tawa ko pinakita ko na, 'yung kakulitan ko pinakita ko na.”
So far, Gerald seems to appreciate Gigi’s bubbly side, saying that the “Sakalam” singer is fun to talk to.
Being the more experienced actor, Gerald was happy to give a piece of advice to his leading lady.
“Enjoy. Pace yourself,” said Gerald.
“Kailangan mo ng stamina sa trabahong ito. Meron pa tayong 3 days then rest then 4 days ulit. So stamina physically and emotionally. Ako ang coach mo,” he added.
Gerald also emphasized the importance of working out to build the stamina he’s mentioned, but he understands that it could be hard to gain the momentum to work out.
The actor continued, “Naiintindihan ko naman siya kasi 'yung momentum talagang pag relax ka na… sa iba 'yung workout, parang trabaho rin 'yun eh. Pero sa awa ng Diyos, para sa'kin lifestyle. But it's hard. Sana makapag-inspire pa 'ko ng ibang tao mag-work out.”
“Hello, Heart” tells the story of a bubbly woman (played by Gigi) and Saul (played by Gerald), the man who hires her to be his wife.
The series will premiere worldwide exclusively on iQiyi International this year. No official date has been released yet.
