JENNYLYN Mercado has revealed that she is a big fan of John Lloyd Cruz.
“I’m a big fan of John Lloyd Cruz,” said Mercado, during an interview in “Tonight with Boy Abunda” aired over ABS-CBN.
Mercado, 28, recalled she was only a bit player and had several scenes with Cruz in the Kapamilya series “Kay Tagal Kang Hinintay” which also stars Bea Alonzo in 2002.
“Tinawagan ako ng manager ko, sabi n’ya, gusto mong mag taping? Yung ‘Kay Tagal Kang Hinintay’? Sabi ko, sige and’yan si John Lloyd! Hindi ko ine-expect na ‘yung role na ’yun, ’kala ko lalakad lang ako sa likod, hindi ko alam na parang girlfriend n’ya ako d’yan or para yatang ginagamit n’ya ako para pagselosin kunyari si Bea. Mga ilang eksena rin yan,” she said.
“Kinakabahan ako n’yan at wala na akong ibang nararamdaman. At sala kilig on the side. Meron pa kaming kissing scenes, hindi ko lang maaalala kung kailan pero meron. Tapos kinakabahan ako n’yan kasi ang bata-bata ko pa nun,” Mercado added.
Mercado has worked with some of the top actors in the country namely Paolo Avelino, Jericho Rosales, Sam Milby, Derek Ramsey, and John Lloyd Cruz. But she said she hopes to work with Piolo Pascual in future film projects.
Abunda told Mercado that Cruz was teasing Pascual about her when both actors guested in his late-night show earlier this year.
When the television host asked the actress if there was something to that, Mercado smiled and said: “Wala po!”
Mercado also said she was thankful for the star treatment accorded her by Star Cinema while doing the movie “Just the 3 of Us.” The film will be finally shown on May 4. It also stars Richard Yap.
Iba rin naman ’yung pag-aalaga sa akin ng ABS-CBN. Feeling ko pag nandito ako kung paano nila ako tratuhin parang pamilya. Parang hindi naman ako nalalayo sa aking mother studio,” she said.
