Geoff Eigenmann works with his dad Michael de Mesa for the second time; the first in a movie, and now in the teleserye Kasalanan Bang Ibigin Ka. He reveals that when he was told about it, he thought: “Nagulat ako. But it’s nice."

“Ngayon, very comfortable na.

"I guess, with me, because nag-workshop kami together and the nature of the scene that we do.”

         

Masasabi niyang ito na ang pinaka-mature na ginawa niya?

         

“Yes, very mature and with the story of father and son falling in love with the same girl…

“Ang daming puwedeng pag-ikutan no’n, e, so with that fact alone…”

Nabalita rin na may kissing scene o love scene sila ni Jackie sa serye.

         

“Okay naman. Comfortable.

"Alangan noong umpisa, pero, okay naman along the way. 

“We did everything that Direk [Mark Reyes] asked us to do. So, okay naman.

“Actually, it’s hard to talk about something like that, ‘Hahalikan kita ng ganyan?’ 

“Ako, rehearsal pa lang, blocking pa lang, I try to be as close as possible, contact lang, para comfortable na.”

         

Natawa naman si Geoff nang may humirit ng tanong sa kanya kung "mabango" raw ba.

         

“It’s a weird question. It’s the first question that I’ve been asked that, so nakakagulat lang.”

         

Posible kayang simula na ito ng mature roles na talaga sa kanya?

         

“I guess,” sabi niya.

“With the story pa lang, ang dami nang puwedeng mangyari. 

“So far, first week pa lang, we had I think, two love scenes, siguro more along the way. I don’t know…”

         

GOING STRONG. Bilang loveteam on screen, magkahiwalay na sila ng girlfriend na si Carla. Pero off-screen, ayon kay Geoff, ay sila pa rin.

         

“It’s good," sambit niya.

"Hindi kami nagkikita ngayon. Very busy.

"Siguro it’s been more than a week since we last saw each other. 

“So, busy kasi, kakagaling lang din ng Dumaguete, Cebu for promo. I’ve been always on taping every day. Siya rin, may taping.”

Si Carla ang leading lady ni Richard Gutierrez sa upcoming primetime series na Makapiling Kang Muli.

         

Hindi ba ito nakakaapekto sa relasyon nila?

         

“Okay naman, less communication definitely, pero okay naman. We’re good,” pagtiyak ni Geoff.

         

Sabay biro niya na, “Parang may hinihintay kayo, a! Meron ba na hindi ko alam?”

         

Expected naman nila ni Carla na maghihiwalay muna silang talaga bilang loveteam.

         

“We know naman that we’ll gonna be paired with someone else. But just like before, communication. 

“The phone is always there. Isang text lang naman 'yan, isang tawag—madali lang.”
