MANILA – With just days to go before Valentine's Day, Albie Casino insisted that he is not looking for love this 2016.
In an interview with entertainment site Push, Casino said he prefers to focus on his acting career following the massive success of “On the Wings of Love.”
“Last year, I guess you can say that was my warm up. Now I’m really just focused. ‘Di ba parang I was gone for a while? Now I’m fully adjusted to it again, even my body clock. ‘Yun ang mahirap sa showbiz eh, ‘yung sleeping patterns mo. ‘Yung time, doon talaga nagugulat ‘yung mga tao so ‘yun lang. I just don’t think that I’m ready for it again,” he said.
According to Casino, he is fortunate that viewers have warmly welcomed his onscreen team-up with actress Ysabel Ortega.
Recent episodes of “OTOWL” dropped hints that Casino’s and Ortega’s characters might develop something more than friendship before the show ends.
“We just met recently and then parang sa simula pa, I was trying to build a rapport with her and then parang nahihirapan pa kami even if it’s just five years, age gap pa rin ‘yun eh. She’s still in high school ‘di ba? So we just did constant effort to work with each other, build rapport, so that’s why nakikita niyo ‘yung chemistry dahil we work on it,” he said.
Now that the series is down to its last three weeks, Casino said it is bittersweet for the entire cast to part ways soon.
“Last night sa taping pinag-uusapan lang namin how time flies so fast. We are all having fun sa set eh, like everyone from the cast, the crew, we all get along so we’re still working but it doesn’t feel like working most of the time,” he said.
The actor said being part of "OTWOL" has become a learning experience for him.
“Every scene that you take is an opportunity for you to do better, you know, what I mean everything is a learning experience in acting eh. Everything that you experience, sense, memory and all of that, everything you can just add that to your arsenal I guess,” he said.
