Sofia, Diego emotional over first leading project together
It still hasn’t sunk in for Sofia Andres and Diego Loyzaga that they are the lead stars of the upcoming series “Pusong Ligaw.”
They’re already a popular love team to a lot of fans, but to star in their very first project together is an extremely humbling idea for both of them.
“Para sabihin sa'yo na hindi ka na pang-support, ito ka na, pang-bida ka na, mahirap i-explain ‘yung feeling na marinig ‘yun,” Diego said. “Ang sarap kasi na napansin ka rin after mo mag-effort sa role mo, at bibigyan ka ng opportunity at pagkakatiwalaan ka ng mga bosses ng ABS-CBN, sasabihin sa'yo na puwede ka na maging bida. It’s definitely a dream come true. There are no words talaga.”
Meanwhile, Sofia shed a few tears as she recalled her journey to get to where she is now, from TVCs to supporting roles to playing Vida in “Pusong Ligaw.”
“Ang dami kong pinagdaanan bago ko narating itong ‘Pusong Ligaw’ bilang isang bida, may ka-love team, hindi na ‘yung laging third wheel,” she said. “Hindi naman sa nila-lang ko ‘yung pagiging third wheel, siyempre malakang part ng isang teleserye ‘yung third wheel.”
She further mentioned that she won’t stop working hard, and will continue to prove that she’s worthy of attention.
The pair is also glad that they’re already getting a lot of supporters, and shared that working with each other doesn’t feel like work.
“Iba din ‘yung gusto mo ‘yung katrabaho mo, gusto mo ‘yung ka-partner mo, ka-love team mo,” Sofia said.
“Pusong Ligaw” also stars Beauty Gonzalez, Bianca King, Joem Bascon, Raymond Bagatsing, and Enzo Pineda. It premieres on Kapamilya Gold on April 24.
