|Enrique Gil with “Princess and I” co-star Kathryn Bernardo
MANILA, Philippines – Young actor Enrique Gil admitted that his “Princess and I” co-star Kathryn Bernardo fits his “ideal girl’ but denied rumors that he has already started courting the actress.
Despite his denial, Gil admitted that his leading lady is close to his heart. "Any guy would like Kathryn since she almost has all the great qualities of an ideal girlfriend. She is super kind and caring," he said.
Like his role in "Princess and I" Dasho Jao, who is attracted to Mikay's bubbly personality, Gil too is fond of Bernardo's playfulness. He said: "She is so warm as a co-actor. We always joke around in the set that's why it's less stressful."
Meanwhile, Gil is grateful for their show's consistent high national TV ratings.
The Bhutan-shot series was the second most-viewed program nationwide in May with a national TV rating of 31.7%.
"All of the cast and staff's hardwork is worth it because of the viewers' support to us every night. Thank you very much," said Gil, who is also one of the lead stars of the upcoming Star Cinema film, "The Reunion" where he is co-starring with Enchong Dee, Xian Lim, and Kean Cipriano.
Gil further shared that the strong point of their “royal teleserye” is their not-so-heavy narrative. He explained: "I think our show strikes a balance among the primetime shows of ABS-CBN because our story is just light with lots of love angles inside, giving the viewers positive vibes while watching."
“Princess and I” airs weeknights after “TV Patrol” on ABS-CBN’s Primetime Bida.
