Nagsimula nang mag-taping si Sam Milby para sa bago niyang TV assignment for ABS-CBN, ang Lovespell Presents Magic Cellphone na mapapanood starting next Sunday, July 8. This is the first time na makakapareha niya si Angelica Panganiban.
Dinalaw ng PEP (Philippine Entertainment Portal) ang taping ng Lovespell sa may bandang Parola, Tondo, last Thursday, June 28, at doon inabutan namin na natutulog si Sam. Si Angelica naman daw ay pinauwi na dahil sa sobrang sakit na nararamdaman ng katawan niya dahil sa dismenorrhea.
"Actually, we had taping all day yesterday [Wednesday]. We finished 7 a.m. this morning," bungad ni Sam nang makausap siya ng PEP later on.
How is it working with Angelica?
"I worked with her a little with her in Maging Sino Ka Man. She's really easy to work with. She's really great. Very nice and she could act... Honestly, I haven't had that much time. Yesterday is our first day of taping and I only had three or four scenes. Even in Maging Sino ka Man, I only had maybe three of four scenes with her. But so far, I've known her and she's very easy to work with," sabi ni Sam.
Nakita ba niya na dumalaw na sa set nila si Derek Ramsey na balitang boyfriend ni Angelica?
"I haven't seen Derek on the set," sagot ng Fil-Am singer-actor.
Posible ba siyang ma-in love kay Angelica kahit may Derek na ang dalaga?
"Well, first stuff, she is with Derek, di ba? I would never get involved with somebody that is with somebody else. So, that's the first no," sabi niya.
Samantala, tuloy pa rin ang tsismis na mag-on na sina Sam at Anne Curtis. Ano ba talaga ang relasyon nila ni Anne?
"We're just friends," giit ni Sam. "Especially now if you could see her and ask her how much she's working, especially with her relationship with God. And that's something I try to do, too. I think that's something I need to do first, I'm realizing more, before I get into a relationship."
What about Toni? Totoo bang binasted siya nito?
"No, like last year, we we're really close and then after siguro You are The One, we weren't talking that much. Even during You've Got Me, hindi kami masyadong close. But then, when I visited her at her house when she had an accident, mas malapit. So, I'm still close but nothing, I guess, on that [love] level."
Inamin na ni Toni na may kakaibang na siyang nararamdaman para sa kanyang manliligaw na si Direk Paul Soriano. Nai-in love na raw si Toni sa guwapong apo ng yumaong aktor na si Nestor de Villa. Ano ang masasabi ni Sam dito?
"I'll be happy for him if she's really in love, and the first thing I know about Direk Paul is that he's a Christian, too. Then if someone will make her happy, I'm happy," pahayag ni Sam.
So, no hard feelings kung si Direk Paul ang magwagi sa puso ni Toni at hindi siya?
"No, no, no," iling ni Sam.
Is he happy for Toni na finally ay mukhang na-in love na?
"I'm happy for Toni. Well, I think that's something that she's been really waiting for. If she's in love, she deserves it," diin ni Sam.
