The tandem of Enchong Dee and Erich Gonzales in Katorse has gained quite fan base, something which has some people wondering about Ejay Falcon and Xian Lim whose characters are supposed to be the leading men as well. But in a recent interview with ABS-CBN.com, Enchong was quick to clarify that each of them will take turns in the spotlight throughout the said soap. “Ay hindi totoong [tinanggal na si Xian]. Rotation lang talaga yung story ng Katorse. Walang kabugan, iisang show e so tulong-tulong kami. Actually madami ngang nagsasabi sa akin na lumalabas na Enchong Dee ang nilagay sa storya. Sabi ko naman hindi, nagkataon lang na masaya gawin yung character ni Jojo. Siguro ngayon lagi nilang makikita si Nene at Jojo na magkasama, pero yung dumating sa amin na bagong script, dun na, babalik na sila. Ninu-nuetralize lang,” he explained.
Katorse is Enchong’s biggest break this year and he’s really happy that it became a huge hit among the Filipino viewers as well as the TFC subscribers. “Super thank you sa kanilang lahat. As in hindi ko talaga ma-express sa words kung gaano kami kasaya kasi hindi namin inaasahan na ganito yung magiging turnout. Sabi ko nga totoo ba ito? Before we started we expected 22% or 25% ang makukuha naming TV ratings, tapos umabot kami ng 38%. Kaya nagbibiruan kami sa set na o ano, bakasyon na ‘to. So go lang, pagbubutihan pa rin namin ang trabaho,” he proudly stated.
But aside from their hit teleserye, Enchong and Erich will soon be seen in the Cinema Originals movie entitled Paano Ko Sasabihin? where they played deaf-mute lovers. “Nag-aral kami talaga ni Erich ng sign language. Sobrang mahirap kasi we have to learn it in two days. Tapos kailangan namin maipakita sa big screen na sanay na sanay kami sa ganun. Ang galing nga ni Erich kasi parang dalawang beses lang siya nagkamali. E ako parang ang dami kong naiiwan na salita/sign. Kasi nga kapag may naiwan ka lang na isa, iba na agad yung meaning kaya challenging talaga,” he related.
The young actor further shared that his supporters are in for a surprise with his torrid kissing scene with Erich in this indie film. “Hindi lang smack ha. Raaar! Ganon siya. Dalawang beses namin siya kinuhanan, isang wide shot, tsaka isang close up. Pero technically, wala siyang ulit.” All in all he was glad that there were no awkward moments between him and Erich while shooting their first kiss for the big screen. “Basta maraming mint akong kinain bago nag-take,’ he laughed. “Nakakagulat lang kasi hindi kami na-awkward sa isa’t isa. Siguro dahil sobrang kumportable na kami. Pero ako kasi, first time ko yun na makipag-kissing scene, first time niya sa big screen, tapos first time naming dalawa. Pero pag actual namin, pak! Yun na.” When asked what he can say about Erich’s lips, he naughtily exclaimed, “Ang lambot, sobra!”
Enchong also revealed that a new soap is waiting for him and Erich, hopefully by the first quarter of 2010. “Hindi ko alam kung pwede ko na sabihin yung ibang details. Basta kakatapos lang naming mag-story conference. Tsaka makakasama pa rin namin ni Erich sina Xian and Ejay. So sana tuloy-tuloy lang ang suporta ng mga manonood sa aming apat,” he stressed.
Paano Ko Sasabihin? will soon be shown during the Cinema One Originals Digital Film Festival this November.
