Rocco Nacino Admits He Feels Pressure Now That He And Sanya Lopez Are Carrying Their New Show, 'Haplos', As Its Lead Stars

ROCCO NACINO confirms Sanya Lopez’ statement that they’re not yet on but just good, close friends at the moment. “What we do now is there’s a lot of talking to each other, para mas makilala namin ang isa’t isa,” he says. “And talking about a lot of things helps us in building and strengthening our friendship. Almost everyday, kahit walang taping, we communicate para kumustahin ang isa’t isa. We’re now much more relaxed in each other’s company kaysa noong nagsisimula pa lang kami sa ‘Enca’. We’re now paired again in the new afternoon drama, ‘Haplos’, and we help each other out by reading our lines together para mas maging maayos ang acting namin sa harap ng kamera. Medyo nanibago kami noong umpisa kasi sa ‘Enca’, malalalim na Tagalog ang mga linya namin. Ngayon, mas contemporary na.”

They were together when they attended events for GMA in Canada. How was it? “It was great kasi traveling together is one way for you to get each other better. Maraming chances para magkuwentuhan. First time din niya yun to go outside of the country so it was a great experience for her.”

From the looks of it, Rocco has really moved on after his breakup with Lovi Poe who now also has a new beau. Here’s hoping his love team with Sanya will gain more supporters and make “Haplos” a big hit. Their show will be replacing “D’Originals” that is rating quite well in its late afternoon slot, so let’s pray that “Haplos” will be able to sustain the good performance in the ratings game of the show that they’re replacing. Does Rocco somehow feel some pressure now that he and Sanya are carrying “Haplos” only on their shoulders, unlike “Encantadia” where they have many co-stars? “Of course, may pressure, hindi maiiwasan yun kasi kaming dalawa nga ang leads dito,” he says. “But we are confident that with the hard work we do para mapagbuti ang trabaho, along with the support of our director, Gil Tejada, and all our co-stars, naniniwala kaming magtatagumpay rin ang aming show sa GMA Afternoon Prime when it starts airing on July 10.”
