ROCCO Nacino will reunite with rumored flame Lovi Poe in the upcoming primetime Kapuso series “Hanggang Ngayon.”
Directed by Laurice Guillen, the project will be their third show together after “Love Bug” and “Yesterday’s Bride.”
“I’m really, really excited na makakatrabaho ko ulit si Lovi and I’m looking forward to lots of learning and new experiences,” Rocco said.
Asked if the project will only fuel rumors about his special friendship with Lovi, Rocco smiled and said: “We’ll see. But one thing is for sure, between me and Lovi, it’s going to be easy kasi yung chemistry ay nandoon na. It comes with work naman, yung mga intriga.”
Lovi and Rocco will be joined in the series by Charee Pineda, Solenn Heusaff and Cesar Montano.
Rocco will also play the life of missing activist Jonas Burgos in “Burgos Film,” which will be shown in the Cinemalaya Film Festival in July.
“Very sensitive yung film kasi binuksan ulit yung case and nandoon din yung family ni Jonas Burgos nung nag shoot kami. Kinakausap ko yung mga kapatid niya and nakikita daw nila si Jonas sa akin. I felt good kasi I was able to achieve yung (expectations nila),” he said.
Lorna Tolentino and Tirso Cruz III will breathe life to Jonas’ parents Editha and Joe Burgos, respectively.
After bagging successive projects, Rocco said he is slowly climbing his way to success.
“With the right attitude, I’ll get there,” he said. (MNS)
