MANILA, Philippines – Television host and actor Luis Manzano does not feel bothered to be playing the third wheel in the well-loved team-up of actress Jodi Sta. Maria and actor Richard Yap in the hit series “Be Careful With My Heart.”
In an interview with entertainment site Pep.ph, Manzano said he is actually a fan of the show and he is glad that he was given the opportunity to be part of it.
“I’m very, very happy na they considered me for that part… I’m a fan of the show. Si Jodi, alam niya 'yun, na pinapanood ko talaga sila, na aliw na aliw ako sa show nila. I’m really thankful that I was given the chance,” he said.
Manzano said when he was informed about the project, he made sure to make time for it despite his current hectic work schedule.
“Sabi ko, ‘Seryoso?’ Kahit na anong busy, ginagawan ko ng paraan para mapasok ko sa schedule ko. Iba naman ang chemistry namin ni Maya (Sta. Maria) and siguro naman mas gaganda ang chemistry ni Sir Chief (Yap) and ni Maya sa pagpasok ko. Kumbaga, pangungulit ako,” he said.
Manzano shared he already taped some scenes with Sta. Maria.
“Wala pa naman akong natatanggap na negative feedbacks kasi isang sequence pa lang ang nagagawa namin. So far, 'yung mga tao sa set, na natutuwa naman sa mga style namin ni Maya,” he said.
Aside from “Be Careful With My Heart,” Manzano is also hosting the Saturday game show “Kapamilya Deal or No Deal.” He is also set to host another season of reality show “Pilipinas Got Talent” and another game show “Minute To Win It.”
