MANILA, Mar 12 (Mabuhay) — Sanya Lopez and Gabby Concepcion revealed some of the qualities they learned and liked about each other after working together as a love team for “First Yaya.”

In a press conference for “First Yaya,” Sanya who plays the titular character, Yaya Melody, said it was easy to connect with the veteran actor.

“‘Hindi rin siya mahirap maka-connect agad sa kanya. Actually nung una medyo kinakabahan pa ako, nahihiya pa ako pero siya ‘yung nag-approach agad sa ‘yo and then iba kung paano siya kasi sobrang malambing, gentleman,” Sanya said.

Sanya also revealed that Gabby cooks for the whole cast during the lock-in taping, saying, “sino ba naman ang hindi mahuhulog kapag ganon ang kasama mo? Si Kuya Gabby, tatayo pa lang yan very presidentiable na, tapos ang gwapo. So ‘yon lang ang isa sa mga characteristics na mga nakikita ko,” she added.

Meanwhile, Gabby said Sanya is someone anyone can easily fall in love with.

“Well si Sanya kasing madali ang ma-in love ang kahit na sino dito. Napaka-simple niya kaya siguro siya pinili ng management. Ang bait niya, kalog siya, health conscious,” Gabby said.

“Conscious siya sa mga tao na nasa paligid niya at ‘yung character na ginagawa niya parang siya ‘yun eh. Sabi nga ni Direk ‘wag ka na umarte. Ganito gawin mo. ‘Yan ‘yan. ‘Yan ‘yun, ikaw ‘yun,” he added.

Sanya also expressed how excited she is for finally being able to portray a lead role in a romantic comedy series.

“Bago itong ‘First Yaya’ sa kin. Ang pagpasok sa romcom feeling ko ito talaga ‘yung nakaka-excite i-share sa kanila, na ‘guys marunong na ako mag-comedy’ dahil sa mga kasama ko at lalong lalo na kay Direk LA siyempre sobrang galing,” she said.

“Gusto ko kung paano hinihimay ‘yung character ko dito ni Direk LA para lang mai-pasok sa kin si First Yaya si Yaya Melody,” she added.

“First Yaya” will premiere on March 15, 2021 on GMA Network’s Telebabad lineup replacing Anak ni Waray vs. Anak ni Biday. (MNS)
