“Well, si Ms. Maricel ‘yan. Anything coming from her na maganda tungkol sa akin, sobrang nakakataba ng puso,” Anderson told

Anderson added he is more excited to learn from Soriano, who is dubbed as the country’s Diamond Star.

“I feel blessed na kasama ako sa comeback project niya sa ABS-CBN. Excited ako kasi si Ms. Maricel ‘yan. Alam ko madami ako matutunan sa kanya. So, I’m really excited. Kung excited siya, doble 'yung sa akin,” he said.

Meanwhile, the actor denied that he felt awkward working with actress Cristine Reyes in the show because of singer-actress Sarah Geronimo.

“Wala po talaga. Pareho kaming professional. Leading lady ko siya so, for the next six months, I’ll do my best para alagaan and para magkaroon kami ng chemistry as onscreen partners. Magaling si Cristine and she can offer something different para sa mga viewers,” he said.

Anderson was once romantically linked to Geronimo, who is the former girlfriend of actor Rayver Cruz. Reyes is currently the girlfriend of Cruz.
