MANILA – Richard Gomez remains optimistic that he and Dawn Zulueta could work on another movie or TV show again in the future.
In an interview with Toni Gonzaga for “I Feel U” on Sunday, Gomez said he likes the feeling when he and Zulueta do reunion projects because it makes their avid supporters really happy.
Recalling how ecstatic their fans were when they did “She’s Dating the Gangster” in 2014, Gomez said: “Tuwang tuwa talaga sila. We received mga comments sa Instagram and Facebook. Gusto nila magkaroon pa ng another reunion.”
Gomez, however, admitted that there could possibly be one problem.
“Sabi ko, kasi nga dahil limited 'yung area ko, I can only leave Ormoc City once in a while kasi kapag mayor ka, kailangan nandito ka lagi,” he said.
“If you remember mga two years ago, nakagawa din ako ng movie with Sharon (Cuneta). Siguro 90% of the movie was actually shot here in Ormoc. Siguro kung may reunion movie kami ni Dawn, maganda rin dito kami mag-shoot sa Ormoc,” he added.
A former real-life couple, Gomez and Zulueta are considered one of the most sought-after tandems in the '90s.
Their team-up made a comeback when they starred in ABS-CBN's "Walang Hanggan," which concluded in October 2012.
When asked how they keep their friendship fresh, Gomez said: “Kasi kami ni Dawn when we were young, mag-boyfriend and girlfriend kami pero when we split up, we remained friends. Kahit hindi na kaming dalawa, 'yung relationship namin naging friends kami.”
“Through the years, kapag nagkikita kami, nag-uusap kami. Every once in a while, nate-text ko siya. Kinakamusta ko pa rin siya,” he added.
Gomez said it also helps that their spouses are friends, too.
“'Yung husband ni Dawn, si Anton, kaibigan ko rin. Si Lucy kaibigan din niya si Anton kasi magkasama sila sa Congress,” he said.
Gomez and Zulueta’s last movie project together was “The Love Affair” which also starred Bea Alonzo.
