Sid Lucero intimidated by Marian Rivera

WHEN ‘AMAYA’ was launched, Sid Lucero “escaped” right away to elude the press. It was the time he was accused of having an issue with the sales persons of a hardware store. “I was told huwag na lang pa-interview para hindi na lumaki,” he said at the “Amaya” thanksgiving dinner. “O, nawala rin nga, kasi wala naman talagang issue.”

So how’s it working with GMA-7’s top rated epic serye so far? “Nahirapan ako noong una. I felt reyna ng primetime si Marian Rivera so I have to deliver para mapantayan what she has achieved bilang artista. I soon realized na ako lang ang nagpe-pressure sa sarili kong kailangan kong gawin ang ganito o ganyan. Masyado akong nage-effort kaya pinahihirapan ko lang ang sarili ko. So I told myself to calm down, relax, just do my best. Basta I respect so much what Marian has achieved in her career. Hats off ako sa kanya. She really loves her work. They say mataray siya, but never niya kong natarayan at all. Very supportive nga siya. We’re not yet that close but we can get a lot closer. Mas close ako kay Glaiza de Castro as her sister, Binayaan, kasi nagkatrabaho na kami as brother-sister before in the movie ‘Astig’. Our set is a friendly set, from Direk Mac Alejandre and all our co-stars. And I’m glad makakasama ko pa sila ng matagal as ‘Amaya’ is extended until January.”

There’s talk he and Glaiza are playing beautiful music but it’s not true. We’re told Sid’s current squeeze is the pretty drummer of an all girl band named Bea Lao.
