Joross Gamboa believes it’s respect and professionalism which make his team up with Roxanne Guinoo still effective, despite the years that they have not worked together.
Gamboa stars with Guinoo in the second season of the series “Hoy Love You,” directed by Theodore Boborol and which started streaming on the iWantTFC app and on iwanttfc.com last Sept. 11. He is grateful that there are still JoRox fans out there who believe in their pairing to this day.
“Talagang ‘yung respeto at boundaries sa pagiging magkaibigan ay nandoon pa rin. Kaya kahit matagal kaming hindi nagkakatrabaho, nagkakasama kami sa MMK, and then after two years ay MMK pa rin, kahit na anong project ay nagwo-work pa rin kasi we stay professional and respectful of each other,” Gamboa said during the online press conference for the series on Sept. 6.
(The respect and the boundaries of us being friends are still there. So even though we have not worked together for a long while, when we work for “Maalaala Mo Kaya,” followed by another MMK project after two years, whatever project we have works because we stay professional and respectful of each other.)
Gamboa and Guinoo play husband and wife Jules and Marge in the series, a newlywed couple who get themselves embroiled in various problems with their stepchildren and in-laws. He feels “blessed” that they were given a material which is “open for collaboration.” He recalled moments on set when he and his co-stars can openly discuss ideas with their director, and there were instances when their suggestions would be applied.
“Kapag maganda ang atmosphere, lalo na sa comedy, rumerehistro talaga, eh,” he noted. (If the atmosphere is good, more so in comedy, it really registers.) JB
