John Lloyd Cruz: "I've been dying to work with Jennylyn."

Jennylyn Mercado (wearing orange) is cast as an airline ground crew member while John Lloyd Cruz portrays a pilot in their upcoming Star Cinema movie to be directed by Cathy Garcia-Molina (wearing glasses).

ABS-CBN actor John Lloyd Cruz and GMA actress Jennylyn Mercado have started shooting their new Star Cinema movie.

They will be working with each other for the first time in this romantic comedy directed by Cathy Garcia-Molina.

In an interview with Tonight With Boy Abunda aired last night, February 9, John Lloyd and Jennylyn divulged details about their movie.

Their characters both work in the airline industry since Jennylyn is part of the ground crew staff while John Lloyd portrays a pilot.

“I’m playing the role of Aki, isang ground crew na may crush sa character ni John Lloyd, si Uno,” said Jennylyn about her role.

John Lloyd described his character as “isang piloto na talagang matayog, mataas ang kanyang mga pangarap.

“He comes from a family na hindi niya nakilala.”

When asked about his new leading lady, John Lloyd admitted, “I’ve been dying to work with Jennylyn.”

For her part, Jennylyn confessed that she is a die-hard fan of the Kapamilya actor.

“Alam nang nakararami, I’m a fan, halos lahat talaga ng pelikula niya, pinanood ko.”


John Lloyd lauded this move to bring together two stars from rival networks.

“I’m very happy na finally, na kahit na hindi kayo galing sa iisang istasyon, meron nang opportunity na magkatrabaho kayo, maganda yun para sa industriya.”

What can she say about the working style of Direk Cathy?

“Kakaiba, e. Iba yun sa lahat ng mga pinagdaanan kong mga direktor. Si Direk Cathy, iba yung atake,” said the Kapuso actress.

This still-untitled Star Cinema movie is scheduled to air next month.
