Lovi Poe is glad that her next TV series, Ang Dalawang Mrs. Real, allows her to work with the Diamond Star Maricel Soriano.
In an interview with PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal), the Kapuso actress said she grew up watching Maricel’s movies, especially the ones with Roderick Paulate.
In fact, when she found out that she will be part of the Maricel Soriano's teleserye on GMA-7, Lovi admitted that she got very excited.
The two actresses once worked for the 2011 Metro Manila Film Fest entry Yesterday, Today, Tomorrow, but they never had a chance to shoot a scene together.
Lovi is looking forward to working with the Diamond Star.
“This time makakaeksena ko siya for sure," said the 25-year-old actress.
“The first time I saw her, she was very, very nice.
“Ang sarap ng feeling na ‘yong taong iniidolo mo ay makakasama mo sa trabaho.”
Lovi and Maricel will act as Dingdong Dantes’s wives in this drama series directed by Andoy Ranay.
Since Maricel is known for her ability as a dramatic actress, is Lovi up for the challenge to do heavy scenes with her?
“Well, mapunta lang akong sa kalahati ng kaya niyang gawin, masaya na ako,” she replied.
“Siguro mabigyan ko lang ng hustisya ang role ko.
“It’s not about marunong sumabay.
“Basta mabigyan ko ng hustisya at ng tamang expression ang bawat eksena, masaya na ako doon.”
The actress is willing to do anything just to give her best for the soap.
She has one fear, though, “I hope that I don’t have to slap her, ‘yon lang (laughs).
“I don’t think I can because she’s Maricel Soriano.”
Nevertheless, Lovi promised that, “Whatever is given to me, I’ll just make sure that I’ll do my best.
“The least I can do for people who are trusting me is to give all my best.
“Wala, I just wanna be able to do good every time.”
