Benjamin Alvis on leading lady Max Collins: “Pareho kaming galing ng ABS-CBN. Then going back to the States and coming back here in GMA. When we were talking about it, sabi ko nga, ‘Oo nga, ‘no, parehong-pareho tayo.’ And it’s nice because we get along really well and I think we really look good on TV, and I’m so glad I’m partnered with her. Same wavelength po kami at magka-vibes kami sa set."

“It’s a perfect timing,” nakangiting pahayag ni Benjamin Alves tungkol sa naging paghihintay niya na magkaroon ng teleserye sa GMA-7 simula nang pumirma siya bilang isang Kapuso. 

Nang pumirma si Benjamin sa GMA-7 ay tinatapos pa niya noon ang kanyang pag-aaral sa Guam.

Nang maka-graduate siya, saka pa lamang niya nabigyan ng kaukulang atensiyon at panahon ang kanyang showbiz career.

Ang Pinoy adaptation ng Koreanovela na Coffee Prince ang unang teleserye ni Benjamin sa Kapuso network.

Gaganap siya rito bilang si Errol, isang record producer na half-brother ni Arthur (Aljur Abrenica).

Sabi ni Benjamin tungkol sa kinabibilangang soap, “Maganda po ang story. 

“Natuwa po ako na kasama ko po sina Aljur at Kris [Bernal], and also Max [Collins] so I’m excited.”

Nakausap ng PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) si Benjamin sa press conference ng Coffee Prince noong Miyerkules, October 3, sa Studio 7 ng GMA Network.

Base sa ngiti at pananalita ni Benjamin habang kausap siya ng media, hindi maikakailang masaya ang aktor na si Max ang kapareha niya.

               

Paliwanag ng hunky actor, “Enjoy nga kasi pareho po kami ng background. 

“Pareho kaming galing ng ABS-CBN. Then going back to the States and coming back here in GMA.  

“When we were talking about it, sabi ko nga, ‘Oo nga, ‘no, parehong-pareho tayo.’

“And it’s nice because we get along really well and I think we really look good on TV, and I’m so glad I’m partnered with her.

“Same wavelength po kami at magka-vibes kami sa set. 

“When Aljur and Kris [Bernal] have their scene, kami [ni Max] ang palaging magkasama. Kami ang naghihintay.”

Dagdag ni Benjamin, “We’re developing a friendship.

“I’ve only met her when the show started and, really, she’s one of the closest fellow GMA artists na kasama ko, to think na ilang weeks lang kaming magkakilala.”
