When PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) asked Tony if he will be part of Darna the movie, the La Luna Sangre actor did not confirm or deny anything.
However, the 19-year-old Star Magic talent admitted that he'll be happy to work with Liza and her love team partner, Enrique Gil.
He said, "If I was given the chance to work with Liza or LizQuen, that would just be an amazing opportunity.
"It would be a huge blessing na makakatulong talaga sa career ko and makakatulong sa akin bilang entertainer as an actor, marami pa akong matutunan sa kanila."
PEP.ph and other entertainment reporters spoke to Tony after the press launch of 2018 Star Magic Circle, where Tony was introduced as part of Star Magic's new roster of talents.
According to Tony, he already met Liza once when he visited his co-manager during a training for Bagani, where Liza plays the leading lady.
"Si Kuya Mario kasi, may alaga din kasi siya na nagte-training for Bagani, so napunta po ako sa training nila and doon ko po nakilala si Liza. Hello lang."
Tony gave his observations about the Darna lead actress:
"She's a very sweet person, she's very respectable, even though she's a big artist, she always has a smile on her face and very pleasant to everybody.
"She doesn't walk the hallways acting like she owns the building and I think that's what I really appreciate about her.
"You just see that in a person and you hear that in the stories, e.
"I don't think anybody has ever said that Liza's such a mean person. Whenever people talk about Liza, it's always something positive, so that's just nice."
