Gil Cuerva Is Said To Have An Ardent Suitor. Guess Who He Is.

GIL CUERVA is so lucky that he is just so new in showbusiness but he’s quickly included in Yes Magazine’s list of 100 Most Beautiful Stars in the category Strong Starters, in which he surely qualifies. “I can’t believe it when they told me na nakasama ako kasi bago pa lang ako at kasisimula lang ng first show kong ‘My Love from the Star’,” he says. “It’s really a big honor for someone new like me to be included in this prestigious list. I’m also just really thankful and feel so blessed na maganda ang reception ng mga tao sa aming show at pati na rin sa akin. It’s really more than I expected.”

He really feels fortunate that even the press likes him. At the Yes affair, everyone wanted to interview him and have a selfie with him. It helps that he is quite articulate and has an innately good sense of PR and some writers are comparing him to Alden Richards, who’s always been a favorite of the press.

“My Love from the Star” will run for only nine weeks, no extension as per their contract with the original Korean show. So what is next for him, considering that he made quite a big splash in his first TV appearance? “I don’t know yet,” he says. “But honestly, I want to take up some acting workshops first so that I can hone my craft first. I don’t like hearing people say na hindi ako marunong umarte. But I really want to thank Jennylyn Mercado and all my co-stars in our show for helping me a lot and sharing me their knowledge about acting. I wouldn’t have done it without their support.”

He also wants to try making a movie. “Kahit indie films, I want to try. Para ma-experience ko naman.”

What if he’s required to do a sexy scene? “Okay lang naman, basta it’s relevant to the story at hindi yung basta isasaksak lang doon nang walang katuturan. And siguro, I need to work out pa some more, para mas eye candy ang dating. I also dream of being given the chance to work with the other actresses of GMA, like Solenn Heussaff, Marian Rivera, Heart Evangelista.”

How come all his choices are already married? “Not for anything else, but simply because being the newcomer that I am, I know I can gain a lot from the experience of working with more experienced actresses like them.”

The latest buzz about Gil is that he is being ardently courted by a top actor who’s fond of Chinito guys like a chinky eyed actor politician and a singer who were linked to him. The actor is said to be often visiting him on the set of “My Love from the Star”.
