MANILA – Toni Gonzaga is happy to welcome new characters in the ABS-CBN sitcom “Home Sweetie Home.”
Among them is her “Last Night” leading man Piolo Pascual.
“Actually pagbalik na pagbalik ko [from our family vacation in Europe], nag-taping na kami ng ‘Home Sweetie Home.’ Nag-guest sa amin si Piolo. We are very thankful na he’s available and he said yes,” she told ABS-CBN News.
Gonzaga said Pascual will play a recurring character, which he already did when he appeared on the show several years back.
Asked if he will stay long on “Home Sweetie Home,” Gonzaga said: “Sa ngayon, nag-tape kami ng two episodes with Piolo.”
In a separate interview, Pascual said he is still learning the ropes of doing a sitcom but he is definitely having a lot of fun.
“When I guested before, I am portraying the same character. It’s different sa attack and execution altogether. But I am enjoying and I can’t say I already know how to do it. I am going with the flow and trying to be as spontaneous and as natural as I can be,” he said.
Pascual said he did not have a hard time getting along with the cast of the sitcom because he has already worked with most of them before.
Meanwhile, aside from Pascual, Rufa Mae Quinto will reportedly appear on the program.
Gonzaga, however, insisted that John Lloyd Cruz, her main leading man on the show, will return to the weekend sitcom after his leave from showbiz.
