The viewers are in for exciting twists and turns in the plot,” he says. The competent actor also cites how the four leads meticu- lously approach their respective characters. “That I believe is another of our strong points. All of us have collaborated in handling each character. Like in my case, I ask myself, where shall I take Lino, my role? It’s a man’s perspective. We have lots of male viewers and they really follow every episode. They wait for my character’s decision in many crucial points in the story. That’s why I ask real people and their comments guide me in my delineation of the role.” Echo opines that true story- telling plays an important role in their program’s present popular- ity. “It spells the big difference. We are concerned with how real- istic the scenes should be mount- ed, where people won’t find them corny. This is the reason why I give my all in my performance. The kind of acting I give in movies, the same I give in Halik. I think of quality entertainment which our loyal viewers deserve.” The Kapamilya reveals that their soap will have an extension. “I just don’t know exactly until when but the production asked for Iza Calzado Sarah & Matteo Jake Zyrus’ hold hands in dream wedding ready for her wedding Cebu school happening Beautiful and talented Iza Tila hindi mapaghiwalay ang Calzado is the newest Belo bride. magkasintahang Sarah Geronimo soon She is set to wed her fiancé, tech at Matteo Guidicelli habang nagli- entrepreneur Ben Wintle in a fun beach wedding very soon.  Although she is the first per- son to say that juggling a super busy schedule (that involves a new TV show for ABS-CBN and shooting for a brand new film for iFlix), in between wedding prepa- rations presents all sorts of chal- lenges, the happy lady remains unperturbed.  Iza’s mind is put at great ease knowing that she has people around her ready, willing and able to help and support her in any way in her journey to the next chapter of her life. za is bright-eyed and her fu- ture looks divine as her husband- to-be seems to complement her in a lot of ways.

Nope, she understands the demands of my job. She’s so supportive!” At this point, Jericho cannot ask for more and that’s what mat- ters.● - J.P. Gonzales, MS libot sa hometown ng binata sa Cebu noong December 18. Panay ang holding hands ng dalawa nang bisitahin nila ang mga estudyante ng Gualandi Ef- fata Catholic School for the Hear- ing Impaired. Pagpasok pa lang ng class- room ay magkahawak-kamay na ang dalawa. Hindi sila bumitaw sa isa’t isa habang masayang pinanonood ang pagkanta ng Christmas song ng mga bata. Habang nagbibigay ng in- struction si Matteo sa mga bata na kumanta ng “O Holy Night” ay magka-holding hands pa rin sila ni Sarah. Kasalukuyang nagba- bakasyon si Sarah sa Cebu kasa- ma ang mga kaanak ni Matteo. Base sa fan account ng cou- ple, nakunan silang kumakain ng lunch kasama ang lola ni Matteo at mga kapatid ng binata. Makikitang kumportable si Sarah sa piling ng mga ito. Limang taon nang mag- karelasyon sina Matteo at Sarah. Nagdiwang sila ng kanilang fifth anniversary sa Italy noong September. May mga lumabas na espe- kulasyong nag-propose noon si Matteo kay Sarah. Todo-iwas ang Kapamilya actor-singer tungkol dito nang makapanayam ng PEP.ph (Philip- pine Entertainment Portal) noong September 20. Pero kung anu’t ano man, bu- kas sa pagsasabi si Matteo kung gaano nito kamahal si Sarah at secure sila sa tibay ng kanilang relasyon.● - R. Siazon, Pep Jake Zyrus (formerly Charice Pempengco) is ready to share a good number of details about his forthcoming wedding with girl- friend Shyre Aquino. At a recent event, Jake, de- spite prodding by the entertain- ment media though a good num- ber of details about his forthcom- ing wedding to girlfriend Shyre Aquino, wouldn’t disclose when and where the occasion will take place. “But it’s a dream come true,” he said. “For now, just leave it to us. We’ll announce the details later anyway,” Jake said of his long- cherished dream of seeing him- self raise a family with the person he intends to spend the rest of his life with. “Like anyone else, I want to be with the person who loves, un- derstands and supports me every step of the way. And I think I found the right person in Shyre.” Cliché as it sounds, Jake be- lieves that love is a two-way street, “And that’s exactly what’s hap- pening in our relationship. I’m not exaggerating but ours is perfectly perfect!” As far as he and Shyre are concerned, everything seems “perfectly perfect,” but how about her relationship with his mom Raquel and grandmother Tess? It’s a known fact that Raquel and Tess weren’t accepting and approving even of his past relationship (with Alyssa Quijano who they claimed was practically running his life). Are Raquel and Tess showing up on his altar date?● - R. Carrasco 3rd, TMT SHOWBITZSHOWBITZSHOWBITZSHOWBITZSHOWBITZSHOWBITZ
