HAS JOSHUA DIONISIO become a swellhead? Some reports allege that, after he played leads in shows like “First Time” and “Pilyang Kerubin”, success has gotten into his head and he’s now a pasaway on the set of GMA-7’s new toprating Sunday afternoon youth show, “Reel Love Presents Tween Hearts”. “Natatawa lang po ako sa balitang yan kasi di naman totoo,” he says. “When I’m not needed on cam, I just stay in our tent to study the script. At hindi po ako puede maging pasaway as my mom is always with me to call my attention kung magiging magulo ako or unprofessional.”

Is he on package deal with Barbie Forteza? They can’t seem to do a show without each other. “Tween Hearts” is the fifth TV show together and they’re now also in the cast of the filmfest entry “Agimat ni Enteng”. “Siempre we welcome the time na bibigyan kami ng chance to work with other partners. But as of now na gusto pa naman ng tao yung chemistry ng love team namin, okay lang sa’min na lagi kaming magkapareha kasi sanay na kami sa isa’t isa.”

How is it working with the other tween actors of GMA like Kristoffer Martin and Derick Monasterio who are his rivals? “Masaya po kami kasi parang barkada kami sa set, not rivals. May kanya-kanya kaming kuwento at pantay-pantay pong roles namin kaya walang inggitan kahit sa exposure. Sa episode namin this Sunday, lahat kami, dadalhin sa boot camp at magkakaroon kami ng iba’t ibang conflicts and experiences, but these will help us grow to be better persons. Maganda po ang values na tinuturo nito sa kabataan kaya dapat lang panoorin ng teen viewers at marami silang matututuhan.”
