The model-actor clarified, “Siguro people were expecting na pag-cut na ‘yung eksena ganon pa rin kami [kadikit] sa isa’t-isa, pero siyempre kailangan din namin aralin kung ano man ‘yung ibinigay sa amin na trabaho and ‘yun ‘yung talagang ipinunta namin dun.” He went on to say that people should not expect them to be always together even after the work is over, that people should not assume that they are not on speaking terms just because they are not always seen together. “We understand each other,” Enchong emphasized.
The model-actor continued that he and Erich have developed an understanding where they are able to discuss matters and resolve differences immediately. “Sabi ko nga, siguro the things that make our relationship even more colorful or sweeter is because kung ano man ‘yung hindi namin napagkakaunawaan, naaayos naming dalawa. That’s our advantage, kumbaga edgenamin kung bakit nagla-last ‘yung love team.”
Meanwhile, Maria La Del Barrio is down to its last few episodes but Enchong is grateful that it continues to enjoy a strong reception from viewers. “Nilatag sa amin ‘yung mga good things na nangyari while doing [the show],andami nilang napakita sa amin and we’re very happy. Hindi lang ‘yung ratings ang basehan kundi pati online,pag-trending sa Twitter, sa Facebook, pinag-uusapan siya, kaya alam namin na maraming nanonood.
“Hanggang ngayon ang tataas pa rin ng eksena, ‘yung mga problema na nangyayari sa kanila, nae-excite ako sa resolution kasi hanggang ngayon mainit pa rin si Sabrina (Jewel Mische) at Maria (Erich) e. Paano kaya nila ito mare-resolve in the (last few episodes).”
Enchong admitted that the show helped them to mature a lot as actors because they played roles way ahead of their real age. “Sobrang advanced namin for our age, nakakagawa na kami ng role na may anak na kami na tumatakbo na, nagsasalita na, nagri-reason out na. Kumbaga, we’re lucky that nabigyan kami nung gano’ng pagkakataon.”
The show also has also been beneficial for them because they learned some important life lessons. For instance, for Enchong, he was able to understand relationships better because of the teleserye. “Huwag natin pasukin ang isang relasyon kung alam nating half-hearted tayo o hindi talaga natin mahal ‘yung taong pakakasalan natin? Let’s make the right decisions for the right reasons.”
