Contessa star Glaiza de Castro was first seen together with her new leading man Jak Roberto when GMA-7 joined the Panagbenga Festival parade in Baguio City last Sunday, February 25.
Glaiza revealed that their tandem was formed after she did some screen tests with several Kapuso actors for GMA-7’s upcoming drama series Contessa.
Hinting at Jak’s role in the show, Glaiza said, “I think, bumagay kay Jak yung description ng character ni Jhong kasi tough at the same time endearing, yung tipong mamahalin mo.”
Jak, for his part, noted that he and Glaiza have established good rapport on cam since they got to know each other when GMA-7 did a tour in Singapore in October 2018.
“Kasi nung una kong nakita si Glai, tahimik lang nung Encantadia days, so medyo nakaka-intimidate. Hindi mo alam kung paano mo ia-approach, feeling ko seryosong tao. Pero nung nakasama ko sa Singapore, sobrang saya, as in naging kumportable kami sa isa’t isa.”
