Hunk actor Arron Villaflor couldn’t be happier that so many career opportunities have opened for his former lover, Jane de Leon.
In an interview at the year-end party of Prestige International headed by Mannix Carancho, the actor shared that he sent a congratulatory message to her recently, and that she acknowledged it.
Asked why they broke up, Arron simply said it just didn’t work out.
“Feeling ko timing rin, nagsisimula palang (kasi) siya sa industriya natin (that time) eh,” he added.
Does he regret parting ways with her?
“Maganda ‘pagsasama namin,” he pointed out. “Regardless of everything, minahal namin ang isa’t-isa.”
Asked to describe their year-old relationship, he said: “(It was all) mixed emotions.”
Coco as boss
Arron also talked about his work relationship with actor Coco Martin. The former recently joined the cast of the latter’s five-year-old action drama television starrer “FPJ’s: Ang Probinsyano.”
According to Arron, it is his third time working with Coco who is now “more hands-on with work,” perhaps almost “strict.”
Why, Arron had already been scolded by Coco once.
“Siguro makulit ako sa set kasi sobrang saya sa set. Minsan ‘di maiiwasan ‘pag work na, dapat work na ‘to. Eh kasi ang bilis ng pacing namin, ‘yung directing niya, with lines, with script — sobrang bilis. Nakakamangha at iba siya mag-isip talaga kahit tinitingnan niya lang ‘yung bagay alam niya kung anong makakabuti sa eksena,” he said.
Arron doesn’t get offended whenever Coco puts his foot down on work-related stuff.
“I know him personally, and it (being professional) should be like that all the time. Minsan na mi-misinterpret yan ng iba pero gusto lang niyang maging maayos ang lahat. Kasi sino rin naman mag-suffer kung bumagsak ang project? Kaya naman ongoing pa din, nandito pa din ang ‘Probinsyano,’” he said.
Does he and Coco talk about the franchise renewal issue of ABS-CBN? Arron said they could only pray for the best.
“Sana maging maayos ‘yung usapan within the management. Kami (actors/employee) nag-aantay lang (ng balita),” Arron said.
He added Coco is positive on the matter.
“Optimistic tawag sa kanya kasi kahit anong mangyari positive lang siya na ‘Hindi, ito ang plano natin. Kaya natin ‘to. ‘Wag nating ipakita na mahina tayo, ito ang plano at ito ang ipapakita natin at magiging successful tayo,’” Arron shared.
