Celebrity couple Sam Milby and Catriona Gray may come from different fields, but it doesn't hinder them from being understanding of their respective careers.
In a bloggers conference held today, June 8, the "A Family Affair" leading man opened up about the dynamics of their relationship when asked if he ever discussed with his girlfriend about his role in the upcoming series, especially since it involves some intimate scenes with Ivana Alawi.
"We try to keep our relationship very private, and the one thing with her is naiintindihan niya kahit hindi siya actress," he said of his beauty queen girlfriend. "We had a few talks [about 'A Family Affair'] and she's just very, very understanding."
Sam also said Catriona is not the jealous type and he's grateful for having someone who understands his craft.
"I think that's hard to find obviously with someone that's not in the business," he continued. "Just having that understanding na itong trabaho ko, and hindi siya selosa. The trust is there and I'm thankful I have someone like that," he affirmed.
In the same interview, Sam also shared his thoughts about his leading lady's confession from a previous conference that she has a huge crush on him.
Asked if he knew about it, he answered: "No, nagulat ako because I had no idea. Noong sinabi [niya 'yun] noong mediacon, nagulat ako because I had no idea."
"I was surprised. Obviously it's very flattering to know na ako 'yung dating crush ni Ivana. I haven't felt it at all obviously. Ngayon ko lang nalaman noong mediacon last week," he stated.
Helmed by Jerome Pobocan and Raymund Ocampo, "A Family Affair" also stars Gerald Anderson, Jake Ejercito, and Jameson Blake.
It will soon air on Kapamilya Channel, Kapamilya Online Live, A2Z Channel 11, iWantTFC, and TV5. The official premiere date has yet to be announced.
