YEN Santos did a movie with Piolo Pascual, “Northern Lights”, and it was not very successful. She’s now much luckier with Jericho Rosales in “Halik” as Jacky, the first love of Echo who marries Sam Milby as Ace, who turned out to be a serial womanizer who has a scandalous affair with Echo’s wife, Yam Concepcion.
“I felt na nagmarka pala sa tao ang role ko as Jacky when, one time, I was eating in a restaurant and someone approached me and told me, ‘Ma’am Jacky, puwede ba 'wag kang tatanga-tanga? Niloloko na nga ng asawa mo, wala ka pang alam.’ Natuwa ako kasi it means na nanonood talaga sila ng show. Alam nila ang mga nangyayari sa story nito. I really feel so blessed na mapasama sa isang very successful show like ‘Halik’. Hindi ko na siya malilimutan for the rest of my life.”
She has nothing but good words for Jericho as her leading man. “He’s such a generous co-actor,” she says. “Talagang tutulungan ka niya kasi gusto niyang mapaganda nyo ang mga eksena nyo together. Ang lahat naman, very collaborative ang working relationship sa set. Lahat, nagtutulungan. Kaya yung friendship na nabuo namin sa cast ng ‘Halik’, hindi talaga matutumbasan ng salapi. Kahit mabibigat lagi ang mga eksena namin sa show, gumagaan kasi lahat ng kasama mo, puro helpful at mababait.”
