MANILA — "My Ex and Whys" director Cathy Garcia-Molina recalled during a bloggers' conference on Friday the moment she first noticed Enrique Gil.
According to Molina, she noticed the "pogi" young man on Sunday variety show "ASAP." She then immediately asked regular "ASAP" performer Rayver Cruz to name him.
"Enrique Gil. Bago po, kaya lang pilipit ang dila," Molina recalled Cruz saying.
Molina said she first thought of Gil as the best counterpart for the late actor AJ Perez, who was also "tisoy" and equally good-looking.
"Pero hindi lang pala siya pogi. Magaling na artista din naman talaga," Molina added.
Apart from "My Ex and Whys," Molina has already made a few projects with Gil, including the phenomenal 2014 series "Forevermore."
"My Ex and Whys" will hit theaters on Wednesday.
