Coco Martin is working extra hard to develop good rapport with Kim Chiu, his leading lady in the upcoming ABS-CBN series “Ikaw Lamang.”

Although this is third time that Martin and Chiu will be working together after “Tayong Dalawa” in 2009 and “Kung Tayo’y Magkakalayo” in 2010, the award-winning actor said they still have to build up a strong on-screen chemistry.

Kailangan dalawa kayong nagkakaintindihan. Ako kasi honestly sa lahat ng nakakatrabaho ko, kailangan namin ng panahon,” he said.

Noting that chemistry doesn’t come easily, Martin admitted having a hard time adjusting during his scenes with Chiu.

Actually mahirap lalong lalo na sa akin. Siyempre ngayon nagsisimula pa lang kami, kailangan talaga ;yun pagtuunan ng pansin, ng panahon kasi kailangan kong trabahuhin na magkaroon kami ng chemistry ni Kim. Medyo matagal kaming hindi nagkasama,” he said.

Chiu, for her part, said: “May pinagsamahan na rin kami kahit papano. Pero ‘yung mga kilig-kilig, tinatrabaho talaga namin. Marami kaming inputs sa isa’t isa. May kinunan kami nung isang araw na eksena, medyo piniga namin. Maganda naman ang kinalabasan. Team work dapat.”

Given the many top-rating shows that they have done, both Chiu and Martin feel fortunate to be given another chance to star in a television series together.

Kilala si Coco bilang napakaraming best actor awards so isang karangalan sa akin na makapareho ang isang Coco Martin. Sigurado akong marami akong matututunan bilang artista lalo na sa larangan ng drama,” Chiu said.

“Lalo na ngayon na medyo period ‘yung teleserye, iba ‘yung atake, iba ‘yung salita. Nagpapasalamat din ako na binigyan ako ng Dreamscape and ABS ng napakagandang proyekto,” she added.

Martin, however, pointed out that Chiu has also improved as an actress in the past couple of years.

Ako bilang artista nanonood din ako ng mga soap opera. Nakita ko talaga kay Kim yung pag-grow niya. Napakagaling na niya. Magaling eh. Sana makasabay ako. Ninenerbyos ako,” Martin said.

The highly anticipated period drama “Ikaw Lamang” will also feature Julia Montes, Jake Cuenca, Ronaldo Valdez, Tirso Cruz III, Cherie Gil, Cherry Pie Picache, and John Estrada.

The series is set to debut on March 10, replacing “Got to Believe.” (MNS)
