‘Starstruck’ Gigi De Lana gets acting advice from co-star Gerald Anderson


Gerald Anderson is willing to be the “coach” of new love team partner and showbiz newcomer Gigi De Lana. 

Although the two have just kicked off the filming for their upcoming romantic comedy series Hello, Heart, Gerald already has some pieces of advice for Gigi. 

“Enjoy. Pace yourself. Kailangan mo ng stamina sa trabahong ito. Meron pa tayong three days then rest then four days ulit. So stamina physically and emotionally. Ako ang coach mo,” Gerald was quoted as saying in an ABS-CBN report.

Gigi, meanwhile, related how she felt after being offered to star alongside Gerald in her first-ever TV series project. 

The singer also admitted being starstruck with Gerald who’s the experienced one in the world of acting.

“Nung narinig ko yung offer na magkakaroon ako ng serye, nagulat ako. Totoo ba to? Sa puso ko excited, kabado. First time ko e. Ang partner ko pa Gerald, ang tagal na nito. Mai-intimidate ako kahit di ko pa siya nakikita,” said Gigi. 

“Kinabahan ako. Paano kaya to? Seryoso kaya ito? Pero pinakita ko pa rin yung totoong ako. Yung tawa ko pinakita ko na, yung kakulitan ko pinakita ko na,” she added. 

Gigi will be portraying the role of Heart who will pretend to be the wife of Gerald’s character Saul to please his grandmother with dementia.

Hello Heart is a series produced under ABS-CBN’s partnership with video streaming platform iQiyi.
