Roxanne Guinoo is working with Joross Gamboa anew in the second season of the iWant series “Hoy Love You,” and she finds him to be a true “gentleman.”
“Si Joross, very gentleman ‘yan. (Itatanong niya) ‘Ano ba ‘yung restrictions mo?’ Siyempre, ‘yung husband ko ay conservative, over protective,” Guinoo shared during the online press conference for the series last Sept 6. (Joross is very gentlemanly. (He’d ask) “What are your restrictions?” Of course, my husband is conservative, over protective.)
Directed by Theodore Boborol, the series started streaming on the iWantTFC app and on iwanttfc.com last Sept. 11. In it, Gamboa and Guinoo play newly married couple Jules and Marge, who find themselves embroiled in serious problems as they deal with their stepchildren and in-laws.
When she got married, Guinoo had set her own limitations when accepting TV or movie assignments.
“Prior to that ay alam na ni Joross ‘yun but still binibigay niya sa akin ang respeto. ‘Okay lang ba nating gawin ito?’” she recalled how he addressed her. (Prior to that, Joross already knows [about my limitations] but still he affords me respect. “Is it okay if we do this?”)
At the same time, Guinoo admits she and Gamboa are no longer very close.
“Hindi kami super close, ‘yung casual ka lang kasi kapag married ka na, kapag may pamilya ka na, siyempre may mga certain things na parang siyempre ayaw rin naman nating maka-offend ng partner natin,” she shared.
(We’re not super close, we’re just casual because when you’re already married, when you already have a family, of course there are certain things we don’t like to offend our partner with.)
But Guinoo remains overwhelmed over the reception of their JoRox love team which started in the reality talent show “Star Circle Quest” years ago. She credits the success of their second wind as a love team to their “rapport, friendship and respect” which remained intact through the years. JB
