MANILA – Sarah Geronimo has yet to watch a full episode of “Bagani” where her boyfriend, Matteo Guidicelli, is one of the lead actors.
But according to Guidicelli, Geronimo has seen some clips of the series.
“Yeah, she likes it. I mean, she hasn’t seen it on TV but she saw some snippets online and she likes it also,” Guidicelli told PUSH. “I think everybody na mapapanood nila ‘yung first day, second day or ‘yung pilot, kumbaga, makikita mo talaga na sobrang laki ng soap. ‘Yung mga shots pa lang, very big.”
Guidicelli plays Lakam on the show, an artist who is trying to prove to his father that he can become a leader.
“The character of Lakam is a little complex because he’s always trying to prove something. He can’t always be himself… As the soap goes, makikita niyo ‘yung iba’t ibang challenges ni Lakam,” he said.
“Bagani” premiered on ABS-CBN on March 5, and its airs from Monday to Friday after “FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano.”
Since its premiere, it has been receiving a lot of good feedback from netizens and celebrities alike.
When asked how it feels to hear such good comments about the show, Guidicelli said: “This soap, everybody around it, they work very, very hard for it since last year, since the year before that. Talagang pinaghandaan talaga ito, pinag-isipan talaga.”
“It’s a big soap and it’s a big effort for everybody. We’re proud of it. Me, personally, I’m very proud of this soap because it’s one of a kind. It’s a huge thing. It’s beautiful,” he added.
Aside from Guidicelli, “Bagani” also stars Enrique Gil, Makisig Morales, Sofia Andres and Liza Soberano.
