Sophie Albert Bashed By Gabru Fans For Being Ruru Madrid's New Leading Lady In 'Sherlock Jr.'

SOPHIE ALBERT is thankful that after her stint in “The One that Got Away” as one of Dennis Trillo’s many girlfriends, she is now included in the cast of “Sherlock Jr.” as Erika, the girl who becomes the object of affection of both title roler Ruru Madrid and Rafael Rosell, who just came from the successful afternoon soap, “Impostora”. Some fans of Ruru’s love team with Gabbi Garcia are bashing but she doesn’t mind. “Trabaho lang po ito,” she says.

The story of “Sherlock Jr.” becomes very intriguing as it starts out with Ruru as Jack and Rafael as Gregor fighting furiously like they’re mortal enemies. Ruru said they rehearsed the action scene several times and it was shot at almost 2 in the morning. But later on, it will turn out that they are half brothers as it so happened that they have the same father. The fight scenes are well executed and establishes Ruru no doubt as a young action star.

How does Sophie feel that the rift between half brothers Ruru and Rafael will worsen because of her? “Feeling ko, sobrang haba ng hair ko dahil pinag-aawayan nila ako,” she beams. “But seriously, I’m very thankful to GMA-7 dahil magkasunod ang magandang assignments na ibinibigay nila sa’kin. Kaya naman inspired ako to always do my best para hindi ako mapahiya sa pagtitiwalang ibinibigay nila sa’kin. I can really say na hindi ako nagkamali sa paglipat ko to be a Kapuso.”

When it comes to her lovelife, it seems that she and former TV5 colleague, Vin Abrenica, have rekindled their romance after having separated for about one and a half years. It will be recalled that they became on after winning in TV5’s “Artista Academy” talent search but they decided to call it quits when the Kapatid network stopped producing local entertainment shows and Vin moved to ABS-CBN.

Recently, they were seen vacationing together in Bali and Sophie posted their photos together with the caption: “Happy hearts”. Is this a confirmation that they have indeed reconciled? “All I can say is what you see is what you get,” she smiles.
