Charlie Dizon will prove yet again her versatility as an actress in her upcoming "Maalaala Mo Kaya" episode, this time with Kiko Estrada.
In the virtual media conference on Monday, March 28, the "Viral Scandal" actress candidly talked about working for the first time with Kiko.
"Noong nalaman ko na makaka-partner ko si Kiko, hindi kasi kami magkakilala in person talaga. Nahiya rin po ako siyempre bagong partner ulit, tapos totoong tao gagampanan namin na mag-jowa," she recalled.
According to her, the only time she met him prior to the shooting was when they had to do their pictorial for promo materials. "Medyo nakaka-awkward po sa umpisa pero nag-jive naman po kaagad. Nagkabiruan kami kaagad so na-feel ko na madali siya katrabaho," she added.
Charlie also praised the actor for being so professional on set, saying how she witnessed his passion with his craft.
"Nakita ko na passionate siya sa ginagawa niya, memorize niya kaagad 'yung script, napag-usapan namin 'yung gagawin namin, kung paano 'yung dynamics namin sa isa't-isa bilang mag-jowa," she said.
The "Four Sisters Before the Wedding" actress believes Kiko, who hails from a family of actors, has passion that is something he learned from his parents and grandparents, who are known screen veterans.
"Si Kiko galing din po siya sa family ng mga artista and nai-share po niya 'yung passion nila, kung paano siya pinagsasabihan ng parents niya pagdating sa show business. And malaking tulong din po 'yun sa 'kin na naiintindihan 'yung pinanggalingan nila," Charlie said.
"'Yung mga advice ng parents niya naintindihan ko rin po. Hindi lang sa acting pati 'pag nakakausap ko siya, nakikilala ko siya as a person talaga," she maintained.
Charlie and Kiko's "MMK" episode will air on April 23.
