Although Empress Schuck plans to stay single for the meantime, she doesn't deny that Felix Roco, her leading man in Rosalka, can be considered boyfriend material. "Hindi naman po imposible kasi caring naman siya kahit na medyo nahihiya pa siya sa akin noong mga unang taping namin. Kahit hindi kayo close, inaalagaan ka niya at saka nirerespeto ka niya. Kaya parang hindi namang malabo," says Empress about Felix.

According to the 17-year-old actress, they seldom talked to each other off-cam before. But it's different now because her leading man has already shown his comic side.

"Kitang-kita mo talaga ang changes sa kanya. Kasi dati, mahiyain siya, laging tahimik. Pero ngayon, tumatawa na kami palagi. Ayun, mas nagkukuwentuhan kami ngayon. At saka hindi lang naman din po sa akin kung hindi sa lahat. Kaya siguro, as a person, talagang nag-improve na siya," said Empress to PEP (Philippine Entertainment Portal) on the set of Rosalka yesterday, August 3, at Casa Pura in Scout Santiago, Quezon City.

The young actress added that these changes really helped a lot in building good rapport, not only between her and Felix but towards their co-stars and the staff as well.

"Happy naman ako na nag-i-improve kami sa isa't isa," said Empress. "Kasi, parang mas maganda 'yon kaysa nagkakahiyaan kami. Siyempre, alam ko naman na pagdating sa acting, mas mag-i-improve kaming dalawa kasi nagtutulungan kami, 'yon talaga ang importante. Happy ako na habang tumatagal ang show, may mga improvements na nangyayari at sana magtuluy-tuloy."

Since they will be working together a little longer, Empress believes they can still become closer.

"Naniniwala ako na mas magiging close pa kami. Kasi, ngayon close na kami, so parang hindi naman imposible na mas maging close pa kami. Parang kahit close kami ngayon, may mga konting stuff na hindi pa namin alam sa isa't isa."

NOT YET READY FOR A ROMANTIC RELATIONSHIP. In a separate interview, Felix said that he can't have a deeper relationship with Empress because he respects her parents a lot. He also knows that her parents are strict about Empress getting involved in a relationship.

"Mabuti na rin na alam niyang strict!" Empress said with a laugh. "Para hindi na siya mag-take advantage, kasi may mga ganung klase ng lalaki minsan, di ba? Kaya parang mas okay sa akin 'yong medyo nahihirapan siya. Kasi, kapag nag-take siya ng first move ngayon, wala rin namang mangyayari, hindi ko rin sasagutin. Kaya, huwag po muna kasi ayaw ko pa talaga."

Empress also said that she's not really interested in having a special someone right now. "Kasi, hindi ko rin ine-entertain, e," she explained. "At saka hindi rin naman talaga ako lumalabas. Hindi rin ako masyadong nakakakilala ng ibang tao."

Empress belongs to a group of female friends in showbiz called Chiurigogobashu, which includes Kim Chiu, Melissa Ricks, Kitkat, Beauty, and Erich Gonzales. Except for comedienne Kitkat, these young stars are part of love teams.

The young actress is happy that her friends in showbiz support her decision to stay single.

"Masaya lang silang nakikita ako na, 'Uy, buti ka pa hindi ka nagmamadali.' Maganda 'yan na parang nag-a-advice lang sila na, 'Basta kapag ganyan ang boyfriend mo, dapat ganito. Dapat ipakilala mo, ha,'" she related.

Empress also said that she doesn't feel envious even if most of her friends have screen partners.

"Hindi ko naman po kasi gusto 'yon," she said. "E, sila gusto nila 'yon kaya happy ako sa kanila. Pero sa akin, ayaw ko pa naman talaga kaya wala akong kailangang kainggitan."
