Although there’s no final plan yet, Erich Gonzales already feels happy because there are people who want her to be paired with Thai heartthrob Mario Maurer.
The hashtag "ErichGonzales" became one of the top trending topics last Monday, July 25, in the microblogging site Twitter.
This happened after a rumor came out that the local young actress will be doing a movie project with the 24-year-old Thai actor, who is set to visit the country for a local clothing brand endorsement. (CLICK HERE to read related article.)
But the 21-year-old actress still couldn’t make a comment about it because nothing was mentioned to her yet.
"Sa ngayon po ay hindi pa napag-uusapan pero happy ako kung matuloy ’yan.
"In fact, ’yong ma-consider lang, sobrang happy ako," said Erich when asked about it after the press conference of her upcoming teleserye Maria la del Barrio earlier today, July 27.
She also thanked the netizens who considered her as a possible onscreen partner of Mario in a movie that would be produced here.
Erich stated, "Masaya po ako at salamat po sa [mga fans]. Tingnan po natin kung matutuloy po."
Erich mentioned that she became a fan of Mario after watching his romatic-comedy movie Crazy Little Thing Called Love.
Meanwhile, PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) tried to confirm this report through Joyce Ramirez of PR Asia, the agency that will bring the popular Thai actor in the country.
She said that ABS-CBN’s movie outfit, Star Cinema, has offered a movie project for Mario. However, the leading lady is yet to be finalized.
She also mentioned on her Twitter last Monday, July 25, that, "THE SELECTION of the ACTRESS position will only be revealed after Mario Maurer reviews the SCRIPT - so nothing is FINAL yet! Thank you."
Joyce will be flying to Thailand next week to introduce Star Cinema to Mario.
