MANILA - Actor Jake Cuenca said he is flattered to receive both praises and hate comments over his portrayal of the contravida character Franco in ABS-CBN's hit series "Ikaw Lamang."

Cuenca said this only goes to show how effective he is in playing his role.

"Sobrang flattering sa akin 'yon kasi more than anything tanggap ng tao 'yung versatility, tanggap ng tao 'yung lahat ng aspeto ng acting na binibigay ko. Ginagawa kong malaking bagay na mag-aral pa and to do my homework," he said.

Cuenca went on to hint what audiences can expect from Franco now that he has awakened from his coma.

"Mas masama siya ngayon at mas malupit ang gagawin niya ngayon," he said.

Also part of "Ikaw Lamang" are Coco Martin, Kim Chiu and Julia Montes.

Meanwhile, Cuenca said he is inspired to work on the primetime soap because of his love life.

The actor recently admitted that he is happy in love with his girlfriend, model Chanel Olive Thomas.

"Sobrang swerte ko na nakilala ko ang girlfriend ko na si Chanel, and I think this one is for keeps," he said.
