The unexpected transfer of seasoned actress Janine Gutierrez to ABS-CBN at the beginning of this year indeed surprised avid showbiz onlookers since she’s considered as one of the brightest stars in the network where she came from. But her eagerness to further hone and showcase her full potential as a thespian, not to mention fulfilling her dream of working alongside her favorite Kapamilya talents.
Among them is probably versatile actor JC Santos, who she got to work with in the 2021 TBA Studios film “Dito At Doon,” helmed by top-caliber director JP Habac. And as to promote their first project together, the three of them recently dropped by FYE Channel’s KumuStar Ka, wherein one netizen also had the opportunity to ask them a question.
Rjhay Meniano, whose striking look truly wowed host Papa Ahwel Paz and his three guests, first threw his question to Janine regarding her relationship with her boyfriend actor-dancer Rayver Cruz now that they are working in two different networks.
“Gano’n pa rin. ‘Di ko naman masyadong naramdaman na same kami ng station kasi hindi naman kami nagkateleserye. Hindi ko naman siya nakatrabaho do’n. So, parang walang pinagbago,” the 31-year-old said, chuckling.
Her leading man JC was also quizzed about his experience as a first-time dad and the things that has been keeping their family occupied during this pandemic.
“Okay naman, masaya. First time ko siyempre, ‘di ba? So, I’m exploring a lot of things, exploring everything right now kasi nakikita kong lumalaki ‘yong baby and ni-explore ko rin ang pagiging parent kung kumusta naman ba ako. Activities wise, ang dami naming ginagawa e. Like ngayon, nag-aalaga ako ng garden habang nag-aalaga ako ng baby, nagpapaayos kami ng bahay. Medyo busy, tapos ngayon nag-iisip ka na ngayon ng business. Yeah, it’s gonna be a busy year for 2021 for us,” the 32-year-old actor willingly related.
