"It's been a while since we last saw each other," Richard Gutierrez says of KC Concepcion during the pictorial and story conference of GMA Films and Regal Films' When I Met You. Pero it seems that absence made the hearts grow fonder, dahil talaga namang sizzling ang chemistry ng dalawa.
At mukhang excited na sila to work together again for their latest film together, their first with GMA Films.
"For me, it's very different—kasi it's GMA," sabi ni KC. Ito ang unang pagkakataon ng dalaga na makatrabaho ang talent pool ng GMA, at aminado siya na medyo mangangapa pa siya. "It's not what I'm used to. The people we're working with are different, [it's a] whole different group of people, a whole different company, and hindi ko alam kung kailan pa kami magkaka-work [ni Richard ulit] after this movie."
Dagdag pa niya, "Baka it may be the last movie that we do in a long time, so talagang sacred moment."
Richard too is savoring the moment. Especially since this time around, they are workin on his home turf. "Ngayon naman si KC ang may chance na makapagtrabaho with GMA people. So it's an exciting venture for both of us. 'Yun nga, sabi ni KC, it's gonna be totally different."
Pero hindi nagtatapos sa film outfit ang pagiging iba ng When I Met You sa nauna nilang project together. KC reveals, "I think this will be more adventurous. 'Yung mga eksena namin mas fun, mas nakakatuwa, mas nakakatawa, mas light—"
"'Yung kilig, nandoon na naman 'yun, eh," Richard interjects. "'Yung bagong elements nung movie siguro, dito sa GMA Films mas fun 'yung movie, mas may comedy at mas mag-eenjoy siguro 'yung mga tao, in a way."
And this being KC's first time with GMA Films, Richard promises to do everything to make her feel at home. Siyempre, may halong yabang na rin. "Si KC, first time niya dito sa studio natin—and I'm proud to say na maganda 'yung studio natin, 'di ba?" he finishes with a laugh.
