MANILA – One day after actress-politician Lucy Torres took American actor Gabriel Macht around Ormoc, Richard Gomez revealed that his wife is actually a big fan of the hit series “Suits.”
Macht is one of the lead actors in “Suits” where he plays the role of lawyer Harvey Specter. He arrived in the country on Saturday to help promote Globe Telecom's nation-building advocacy for the survivors of super typhoon Yolanda.
Upon landing in Manila, Macht went straight to Ormoc where his team was welcomed by Torres.
In an interview with ABS-CBN News on the sidelines of the PMPC Star Awards for Movies on Sunday, Gomez said Torres was very excited to take Macht around the province.
“My wife was very excited to see him din dahil every night nanood sa iTunes 'yun ng ‘Suits.’ Pati ako napapanood ko siya. Nanonood siya eh,” he said.
While he was not around during Macht’s visit, Gomez said he is grateful that international celebrities have personally visited the Filipinos who were devastated by the super typhoon.
“We are very happy na dinadalaw tayo sa Ormoc ng mga ganung klaseng celebrities. Ibig sabihin they really care for us. May sympathy sila, tumutulong talaga sila. We are very thankful,” he said.
These past months, singer Justin Bieber and football superstar David Beckham also flew to the Philippines and personally visited various areas devastated by the typhoon.

Speaking to ABS-CBN News on Sunday, Macht for his part, said he appreciates Torres’ time because she embodied Filipino hospitality.
“When we went out there, Lucy Torres-Gomez welcomed us and took us around the town… When I arrived, just to see the generosity of the Filipino people, that has been incredible. I guess that expectation that I sort of had has fulfilled itself. People here are friendly and warm,” he said.
Macht said he plans to return to the Philippines after he finishes shooting for the fourth season of “Suits” this November.
“I’m only here for a short period of time but I really hope to bring my wife and my kids back. I want to go back to Ormoc and I also want to see some beaches… When I get back [to the US], I’m going to tell them that I had an amazing trip to the Philippines,” he said.
