Talking about his interaction with Susan, Inigo said, "She’s honestly so sweet. I had this talk with her on my birthday. I celebrated my birthday on the set and I told her all I want for my birthday is a picture with you. Sabi niya, 'You're so sweet.' Tapos we had this conversation for 20 minutes and grabe sobrang down to earth na tao."
Inigo also opened up about his audition process, and revealed that he still couldn't believe he bagged a role in the series.
"It’s crazy. Honestly, hindi pa rin ako makapaniwala. Every time someone congratulates me about it, hindi pa rin nagsi-sink in sa akin na it’s happening. It all happened so fast ever since I did the audition," he said.
"I had to sing two songs. One was a country song and one was a pop song," he recalled.
It was on Thursday, September 16, when it was announced that Inigo would be part of the show, as reported by news site Deadline.
According to the site, Inigo will play 18-year-old Ace Grayson, a struggling country artist who dreams of following his grandfather’s footsteps.
