MANILA - More than three years since their separation, former couple John Lloyd Cruz and Shaina Magdayao meet again -- on the small screen.

Cruz's guest stint on "Nathaniel" marks the first time he gets to act again with Magdayao, with whom he had a controversial breakup in 2012.

In its Monday episode, Atty. Lucas (Cruz) and Rachel (Magdayao) crossed paths for the first time after the lawyer had just finished talking to Nathaniel.

However, the two had no lines together since Atty. Lucas was already about to leave when Rachel arrived.

Their short scene together was enough to catch the attention of netizens, who took to Twitter to share their thoughts.

In an earlier interview with ABS-CBN News, Cruz said he would love to be part of “Nathaniel” for a much longer time but has other work commitments which must be fulfilled by the end of the month.

"Nakiusap lang ako actually na mapasama dito so maraming salamat,” he said. “I had four taping days. Sobrang saya, nag-enjoy ako dito. Napaka-welcoming nila and very accommodating kahit apat na araw lang ang trinabaho ko dito.”

It remains to be seen whether Cruz and Magdayao will be sharing more scenes together in the coming episode of “Nathaniel.”

Cruz is currently with Angelica Panganiban, while Magdayao is single.
