Kristine Hermosa and Jericho Rosales were on-and-off screen lovers, the time when they did the hit teledrama Pangako sa ‘Yo and the romantic movies Forevermore and Ngayong Nandito Ka. Their last tv project together was Sana’y Wala Nang Wakas 5 years ago.
“I’m very excited about working with Kristine. Actually last year pa yun. Sabi ko talaga I want to work with her again because I’m ready to work with her again. Kasi I took a break from the love team. I just concentrated on working with a different leading lady (last year’s Kahit Isang Saglit with Malaysian actress Carmen Soo) and did projects that didn’t require a love team. I think naman that I was able to get and experience what I wanted to experience. So now, since the followers of Kristine and Jericho are still there and so excited, it’s about time to pay [our] respects to them and say, ‘Let’s do this for them,’ parang ganun, ‘di ba?” Jericho shared.
In the upcoming series “Ikaw Lamang”, rumored apple of Jericho’s eyes Karylle is also included in the cast.
Jericho’s role is a pearl diver from Palawan and as part of his preparations, he’s been keeping in shape by engaging in his favorite sport – boxing.
“Now I’m just boxing to build up yung resistensiya ko for my role and to keep fit. I try to box at least once or twice a week. And then I like running. I also do push-ups at home. I haven’t been going to the gym because it doesn’t really excite me to lift weights. I don’t want to discourage others from doing that kasi every person has his own favorite workout, but I’m different,” he says.
Ikaw Lamang is coming soon on the primetime bida block of ABS-CBN.
