MANILA, Philippines – Young actor Enrique Gil refuses to be affected by the comments of some netizens who are rooting for actor Daniel Padilla to be the partner of actress Kathryn Bernardo in the ABS-CBN series “Princess and I.”

"Princess and I" lead stars Enrique Gil and Kathryn Bernardo

In the latest goings on in the top-rating television series, Prince Jao (Gil) is now engaged to MIkay, played by Bernardo.

In an interview with Push.com.ph, Gil said the viewers should not attack anybody since what they see on TV is only a story.

“Hindi naman [ako nakaka-receive ng hate mails] sa e-mail. Sa Twitter siguro mayroong iba pero hindi naman ako mahilig mag-Twitter masyado. Buti na lang wala naman akong nababasa na bashers so that I won’t feel bad. Siyempre story lang ‘to, teleserye lang ‘to, relax lang po,” he explained.

Gil, however, said he is glad that all of them in the show are given a chance to be in the spotlight.

“Masaya siyempre. Basta sa story na ito fair naman sa characters. May moment sila ni Gino (Padilla) may moment din si Mikay at Jao so bounce-bounce lang ‘yan eh. Basta follow the story to see kung sino ang magkakatuluyan in the end,” he said.

Gil also said they are lucky to have a “very particular” director, who brings out the best in them in every scene.

“We’re trying to work on it lalo na si direk Rory Quintos [mabusisi] sa mga eksena namin kasi pataas ng pataas ang emotions namin ngayon eh. Medyo haywire yung emotions nina Mikay, Jao, at Gino. Kaya level up din ang acting,” he said.

Meanwhile, the actor said he feels honored that aside from “Princess and I,” he is also doing a movie which will be part of this year’s Metro Manila Film Festival with the movie "The Strangers."

“Kapatid ko si Julia Montes. Family kasi kami tapos may journey kami, papunta sa probinsya. Tapos may unexpected turn of events na nangyari sa trip na ‘yon. That’s where the story starts—combination siya ng suspense, action, at horror,” he said.

“The Strangers” also stars Enchong Dee, JM de Guzman, Janice de Belen, and Cherry Pie Picache.
