FUN KIND OF FRIENDSHIP
Back in October 2018, Alex and Luis spoke to PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) about their one-of-a-kind friendship.
Luis said, "She is one of my favorite people in this planet.
"Kahit na yung asaran namin, ang dami ko rin nasi-share sa kanya about me in general."
Alex shared the same sentiment.
She added, "I wasn’t blessed to have a brother, so si Kuya Luis ang ibinigay sa akin ni Lord—or ni satan siguro.
"I'm very happy na yung friendship namin is beyond showbiz.
"Kasi naging friends na tayo even before pa tayo nagkatrabaho."
