Kapansin-pansin ang chemistry nina Darren Espanto at AC Bonifacio sa celebrity screening ng iWantTFC original musical series Lyric And Beat, na ginanap sa Cinema 1 ng TriNoMa mall noong July 18, 2022.
Marami rin sa kanilang mga tagahanga ang kinilig, bukod sa tilian tuwing ipapakita onscreen ang tambalang Seth Fedelin at Andrea Brillantes o SethDrea.
Sa panayam ng PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) kay AC, sinabi ng dancer-actress na may chemistry sila ni Darren on and off screen dahil na rin sa malalim nilang pagkakaibigan.
"It's a regular thing for us. It's very nice that people are starting to see it on screen and on TV. Ganun talaga, kita off screen.
"And it's our friendship, and I'm so glad na he's the one I'm working with.
“I'm so comfortable with him, I feel like I can do everything with him," saad niya.
Ayon pa kay AC, kuya ang turing niya kay Darren dahil sa pag-aalaga at paggabay nito sa kanya.
"He's an older brother that I don't have, I think that’s what he is. He takes care of me. I know I'm safe with him talaga.
“He's been one of my first friends when I got here to the industry. He's really taking good care of me and guiding me through my journey."
Nali-link si Darren kay Cassy Legaspi, na malapit din palang kaibigan ni AC.
"Cassy and I are best friends also. I call her Cassy Booboo and she calls me AC Booboo. We're always talking also and we try to hang out,” sabi ni AC.
Magkakaibigan daw sila nina Kyle Echarri, Mavy Legaspi, Darren Espanto, at Cassy.
“Actually, lahat kami with Kyle, Mavy, Darren, we try to hang out lagi. Yung sched lang namin di nagtutugma.
“But we're all friends talaga and it's nice to have that friendship between us all artists.”
AC ON VENTURING INTO ACTING
Masayang-masaya naman si AC na mapapanood na sa iWantTFC originals ang Lyric And Beat simula sa August 10.
Sa naturang mini-series ay natutunan na ring i-enjoy ni AC ang pag-arte bukod sa pagsasayaw.
"Sobra, sobrang saya, we've been waiting for this for so long. They are my best friends, they are my family.
"And to see them on big screen na nagtsi-cheer yung mga tao makes me so happy. It fills my heart and I can't wait for everyone to see it on August 10 and so much more.
“Hopefully, we'll see. We will be doing a lot of things this year now [that] we're slowly going back to normal.
“You know, we have the U.S. tour with Star Magic, but hopefully sa acting maybe more shows like this. Maybe a season 2 if they enjoy the season 1.
“Pero sana it's definitely something I want to grow with and learn more about myself.”
AC ON being noticed by INTERNATIONAL STARS
Marami sa foreign artists ang napapahanga at nagkokomento sa dance covers ni AC. Ilan sa kanila ay sina Selena Gomez, Cardi B, BTS, Kenny Ortega, at iba pa.
Para kay AC, inspirasyon iyon para mas i-improve niya ang sarili at ang talento sa pagsasayaw.
"It's always such an honor. It's always suprising. Never ko ine-expect yung mga artists to say that about me.
“I really do everything I do for the love and for my passion for it. To have that feedback makes me so much stronger and so much more inspired to keep going.
"I've been dancing since I was a kid, when I was three or four, but I never stop. You can never stop learning talaga. That's what you learn from all workshops talaga.
“But in terms of dancing, lagi siyang naggo-grow, lagi siyang may bagong moves, bagong techniques so I definitely have to keep watching on online or making something new din on my own.”
