Jen­ny­lyn’s New Lead­ing Man

YES! (Philippines) - - Stargazing -

In her new show, the Pi­noy adap­ta­tion of My Love from the Star, a hit Kore­anov­ela, Jen­ny­lyn Mer­cado is paired with new­bie ac­tor Gil Cuerva. “Happy ako,” she told YES! on hav­ing a new on­screen part­ner. “Kasi bawat change na­man e nakak­a­ganda ’yan sa show, sa akin na din bi­lang

kasama sa show.” YES! met up with Jen­ny­lyn at a pocket press­con (for a se­lect group of me­dia prac­ti­tion­ers) on May 10 at the Rel­ish restau­rant on Scout Lim­baga Street, Que­zon City, and again at the grand press­con on May 18 at GMA-7’s Stu­dio 7, also in Que­zon City. She de­scribed her lead­ing man as “very open, will­ing na mag-aral, na matuto” and “cu­ri­ous siya sa la­hat ng bagay.”

For his part, Gil couldn’t hide his ad­mi­ra­tion for his A-list co-star, who’s also called by her nick­name, Jen. “Di ko na­man in­ex­pect na si Jen, so­brang mabait, ’ta’s walang ere, ’yong mahin­hin,” he told YES! at the pocket press­con.

My Love from the Star direc­tor Joyce Ber­nal—flanked by the soap’s stars, Jen­ny­lyn Mer­cado and Gil Cuerva—was at the pocket press­con but not at the grand press­con. Work­ing with new­bie ac­tors is noth­ing new to Di­rek Joyce. She found Gil to be “very open and friendly,” and she hopes he’ll be­come a top mati­nee idol.
