In an interview with, Milby said he feels blessed that someone as established as Santos wants to work with him.

Santos is dubbed as the Queen of Philippine Soap Operas.

“Sobrang blessed ako. [For someone] of that stature, ang galing talaga and for her to want to do a project with me, grabe talaga. I can’t explain how blessed I am for her to want to do a project with me and I want to thank her for everything. And [let her know] how excited I am to do this project,” he said.

Milby said they already shot the trailer of “Against All Odds” and he is hoping that people would see their good working relationship.

“We already shot the trailer and I think si Judy Ann kahit sino ang ka-partner niya, it doesn’t matter, magsa-shine. She’s so good, so easy to work with. Nagulat ako when we were shooting the trailer. Siyempre first time. She’s so easy to work with talaga and she’s so magaling talaga. Even the teaser pa lang, grabe tinreat niya lahat ng staff and actors to pizza. Magaan talaga ang trabaho at sa pakiramdam,” he shared.

Just like most actors, Milby admitted that he feels the pressure of having a new showbiz project.

“There’s always pressure in any project, hindi mo alam kung anong mangyayari. Kahit confident ka na, magaling ang palabas, you just never know ang reaction ng tao, lalo na sa movie, kasi sa movie people are paying to watch. With teleserye, it’s the same thing, it’s still pressure,” he explained.

Santos, however, gave him more confidence.

“With Judy Ann Santos, it gives me more confidence not only because I’m doing a project with her, but because alam kong marami akong matututunan from her. But it’s also pressure because it’s our first time to work together. Not that I’m worried. If we’re able to work together, I know we can and we definitely be able to. But alam mo sa Pilipinas, uso ang mga love-teams,” he ended.
