MANILA, Apr 5 (Mabuhay) -– “Paraiso” lead stars Jessy Mendiola and Matteo Guidicelli are sad that their afternoon series, which set has witnessed their growing closeness, is now coming to an end.
Guidicelli said he has mixed emotions as the show airs its finale this week. But he is particularly sad because he won’t get to spend as much time with Mendiola anymore.
“It was very hard to approach Jessy at first dahil she’s very quiet all the time, nasa tabi all time. Parang na-intimidate ako. As ‘Paraiso’ went by, we spent two weeks in the island, we got so close together. After a while, we got to bond a lot. A part of me is sad because we’re ending soon. Because these last few weeks was the time we got even closer to each other,” he said.
This sentiment was shared by Mendiola, who said she really had a great time working with Guidicelli.
“Mixed emotions po ako. I’m happy because I’ve been with Matteo and I’ve worked with a lot of people. Kind of sad too kasi siyempre yung bonding namin, ang dami na naming natutunan sa isa’t isa tapos masaya kami kapag magkakasama,” she said.
But are they really sharing something that’s more than just friendship?
“Ang masasabi ko lang, Jessy and I, are in a relationship, I don’t want to put any label. We’re not together, we’re not boyfriend, girlfriend or anything. But what we have, from my point of view and in my heart, Jessy is very special to me,” said Guidicelli.
As for Mendiola, she said she is just waiting for Guidicelli to formally court her but the actor definitely does make her happy.
Asked when he is planning to woo the actress, Guidicelli said: “Like the song goes, take it slow. There’s still a long way to go. The longer you wait, mas maganda. I haven’t met her family yet.”(MNS)
