Tom Rodriguez Proud That GF Carla Abellana Praised His Performance In 'The Cure' That Rated Well On Its Pilot Week

TOM RODRIGUEZ says he’s sure that Carla Abellana is the One he’ll be walking down the aisle. “Yung sa tao, sure na akong she’s the right partner for me,” he adds. “But as to when we’ll face the altar, nothing is definite yet. We can still wait naman, so no pressure.”

He felt proud when Carla congratulated him and all those involved in his new primetime show, “The Cure”, for its successful initial telecast. Carla even posted about Tom: “That’s my baby. Sooo proud of you!”

He and the rest of the cast of “The Cure” are really satisfied that the show is off to a very good and encouraging start. The pilot week was talked about and trended on social media, with comments about how thrilling the show is generally favorable. Viewers said they were glued to their TV sets to find out what will happen next to the characters whose lives are put in danger because of the outbreak of a deadly virus from a gorilla that turns people into zombie-like monsters.

Some folks call “The Cure” a viruserye as the conflicts in it are caused by a runaway virus that brings havoc to the populace. “Nagpapasalamat kami talaga ni Jennylyn Mercado, along with our Director Mark Reyes, dahil sa mainit na pagtanggap ng viewers sa ‘The Cure’,” says Tom. “Nasulit lahat ng paghihirap namin in doing difficult actions scenes. Worth it lahat ng pagod namin just to make sure masisiyahan lahat ng audience.”

People also say that he has good on-screen chemistry with Jennylyn in “The Cure”, where they play husband and wife, Greg and Chari.

Going back to Carla, she sounds depressed when she posted on social media about how some people she trusted deceived her. What’s it all about? “She’s not really naman depressed,” he explains. “More like she’s just disappointed kasi she put up some businesses at may mga pinagtiwalaan siyang tao pero yun na nga, naloko siya.”

How much money was involved? “It’s immaterial. The more important thing is may pinagtiwalaan ka, tapos, hindi pala trustworthy. Yun ang masakit. As of now, medyo nape-pressure siya but I’m sure she’s strong enough and is very capable to know how to handle the situation well. Basta I’ll just be here to help anytime she needs help. I think she’s on the right track naman dahil napakasipag niya and I have confidence that she will be able to rise above all the problems she might be facing now. Basta, it’s a learning experience for her so that next time, she won’t be too trusting.”
