Most of the scenes of Alden Richards in GMA-7's epic telefantasya Encantadia are with Sanya Lopez, who plays Danaya.
In this primetime series, Alden's character Mulawin Lakan brought back Danaya and Lira (Mikee Quintos) to the kingdom, after staying for a while in the mortal world.
After the PEPTalk shoot with the Encantadia Sang'gres last October 11 at GMA Network Center Executive Lounge, PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) asked Sanya about her scenes with the Pambansang Bae.
She described him by saying, "Okay si Alden! Kasi sobrang gentleman, mabait, sobrang magalang, parang binibining-binibini ka kapag kasama mo siya.
"Sobrang professional niyang katrabaho. Kapag sinabing ito yung time na nandito ka, nandito siya ng time na yun, unless na lang meron siyang work nung time na yun, makikiusap siya."
According to her, Alden has already completed taping his scenes last week.
The 19-year-old actress disclosed, "Kakatapos lang namin last week, hindi ko alam kung magkakaroon pa ulit siya kasi alam ko, yun na yung huli naming na-take for him.
But then, she said, "I don’t know kung ano, siyempre tuluy-tuloy naman ang Encantadia, hindi natin alam [kung lalabas pa siya]!"
POSITIVE FEEDBACK. Sanya says she has been getting good feedback from Encantadia viewers, just like Diana Zubiri who originally played the said role.
Sanya said with a smile, "Sa ngayon nga, e, parang iniisip ko na kapag yung pinapanuod mo dati, ikaw na yung gumaganap.
"Paulit-ulit kong iniisip yun, sobrang kinikilig ako, hindi ko maalis sa isip ko na kinikilig ako kasi paborito ko yun, e, si Miss Diana."
She then recalled when Diana congratulated her on Twitter when it was announced that she got the role of Danaya.
"Siya yung kauna-unahang nag-congratulate sa akin sa Twitter!
"Parang, congratulations to the new Danaya, winelcome niya ako."
When asked if she has already met Diana, she answered with a meaningful smile, "Soon."
