MANILA -- Xian Lim admitted that he feels nervous doing a series with his new leading lady, Jessy Mendiola.

"Oo naman, of course [may kaba]," Lim told reporters in an interview on Thursday at the sidelines of the launching of his second album, "XL2."

Even if he has a new leading lady, Lim said he is confident that his fans will be there to show their support.

"Kaya po ako bilib sa kanila, kasi they always assure us na they will always be there for us, maski magkahiwalay yung project, nauna si Kim na magkaroon ng project ay nandito sila all throughout," said the actor, who rose to fame for his love team with actress Kim Chiu.

He added that he will work hard for his newest TV project.

"Siyempre naman po ay pagbubutihin namin. Pupunta kami sa set prepared. Siyempre hindi naman kami gigising na, 'ah wala lang ito.' We will do our best para sa lahat," he said.

Meanwhile, Lim said he is also set to do two movie projects with Chiu.

Their last project together was the hit movie "Bride for Rent."

"Nabalitaan ko nga nung last contract signing may dalawa kaming pelikula together, one with Ms. Ai Ai delas Alas and another one with [director] Joyce Bernal," he said.
