Erich Gonzales & Daniel Matsunaga Top Bill Their Own Teleserye, 'Be My Lady', Starting January 18

ERICH GONZALES is a picture of a woman in love when she’s with beau Daniel Matsunaga. They really look good together so we’re not surprised that ABS-CBN now pairs the real life love birds in their own morning teleserye, “Be My Lady”, which will replace “Ningning” starting January 18. Their love team is called DanRich and their fans went wild when they promoted their show together in “ASAP” last Sunday.

Erich plays a nurse from Pampanga named Pinang. They live under the shadow of the Arayat Mountain. Her parents are Al Tantay and Janice de Belen. Since they’re poor, Janice is forced to work as a yaya in Singapore. There, she’s unfortunately accused of being a shoplifter and is deported back to Pampanga. It so happened that in the same flight with her is Daniel as Phil, a lover boy based in Singapore. He and Erich meet at the Clark Airport and there is instant attraction between them.

“The show is about an interracial romance at kung ano ang barriers dito, like the difference in culture, in language,” says Erich.

How would she rate Daniel as an actor? “I can see na gusto niya talaga ang umarte and he loves what he’s doing so, kahit sabihing bago lang siya sa pag-arte, madali lang ito for him. I’d say magaling siya.”

Is there an advantage in their being paired with each other in “Be My Lady”, which uses Martin Nievera’s classic song as its theme song? “Siempre, it helps na halos araw-araw kaming magkasama sa trabaho so we get to know each other better.”

Daniel agrees to this. “Masaya working together kasi nandiyan lang lagi yung girlfriend ko para sa akin at tinutulungan ako sa mga eksena namin together. Super masaya at super enjoy kami lagi sa set at sa taping namin sa Pampanga kasi we spend a lot of time with each other. Being with each other definitely makes our work easier.”

Both Daniel and Erich look good from any angle. Mahal sila ng camera and they look good together so this is a big plus factor for their show.
