Alexa Ilacad and Gab Lagman admit they have grown closer during their lock-in taping for the primetime series “Init Sa Magdamag.”
In fact, the two have built a “connection” between them as Alexa described the friendship they have during the show’s regional media conference yesterday, July 12.
“Gab and I have this certain closeness na na-build as dumaan ‘yung panahon na magkasama kami together. Natutuwa ako kay Gab kasi kahit hindi kami 'yung everyday magkausap, once magkasama kami, parang hindi kami matagal na hindi nagkita. Parang meron kaming certain connection and very comfortable lang kami sa isa't isa,” Alexa said of the actor.
Gab also revealed how it helped them that there was no awkward stage between them that made their working relationship comfortable.
“Sa'min kasi ni Alexa once, nung first time namin nagkita, walang kahiyaan, eh. Biglang okay na kami or pwede na akong mag-joke sa kanya. 'Yun 'yung nagustuhan ko sa relationship namin,” he said.
The time they spent together also made them discover a lot about each other.
“Na-discover ko kung gaano siya ka-generous sa mga tao, and how I found out kung gaano siya kagaling umarte. Marami kasi kami nagawa ni Alexa na bonding during lock-in. Lagi kaming kumakain ng tapsi, ng mango shake...mga simpleng [bonding] lang na naging close kami and na-build 'yung chemistry namin,” he shared.
As for Alexa, she discovered, “Masaya talaga magkaroon ng partner na tulad ni Gab na mapagbigay every time we have scenes together. Ang saya rin makakita ng bagong actor who's very willing to learn and nakaka-inspire kasi kapag ganoon katrabaho mo, eh. Mas gusto mong husayan para makatulong ka rin sa kanya.”
Asked if Gab is her ideal guy, Alexa said she’s “very fond” of the actor and that he’s very likeable.
“Being with Gab for quite a long time, nakilala ko na siya and I'm very fond of him. If ever [kung siya ba type ko], oo naman. I mean, what's not to like? As you can see, mabait, masipag, gwapo, okay na. Very good, very smart,” she said.
Meanwhile, Gab said he doesn’t have a type. “As long as she's God-fearing, down-to-earth, and family-oriented, okay na sa'kin 'yun,” he enthused.
Catch “Init Sa Magdamag” weeknights after “Huwag Kang Mangamba” on Kapamilya Channel, Kapamilya Online Live, and A2Z Channel 11.
