“I play Mark, yung Kuya sa grupo,” says Rayver. “Medyo dark ang material but young people na walang magawa sa buhay at kung anu-anong kalokohan ang pinapasukan will be able to identify with our characters.”
How’s it working with Matteo and Joseph? “Matteo and I are dati ng friends. Si Joseph naman, nakakasama ko sa out of town basketball tournaments. Okay ang naging bonding namin while doing this film.”
He’s currently getting good feedback for his villain role in “Bukas na Lang Kita Mamahalin” on TV. “Yes, nakakatuwa nga, very positive ang reaction kahit bad yung character ko.” So was it really him who raped Diana Zubiri and not Gerald Anderson? “We’ve shot several endings so hindi ko rin alam which one they’ll choose. Abangan nyo na lang.”
How does it feel that Matteo is now romancing Sarah Geronimo who was linked to him before? “Okay lang. Basta kunsaan sila masaya. When we were shooting this, nakikita si Matt na dumarating sa shooting na masaya, so happy ako for him. Matagal ko nang kaibigan si Matt, parehas kaming nakatira sa South, pareho kami ng gym na pinupuntahan. So kahit anong mangyari sa personal life namin, comfortable kaming dalawa, di makakaapekto sa amin ‘yon.” Read also, After Rayver Cruz, Sarah Geronimo Wants Her Next Bf To Be The Man She'll Marry.
And what about Cristine Reyes who just broke up with Derek Ramsay? “Okay kami ni Cristine. Magkasama kami sa ‘Bukas Na Lang’. She’s old enough to know what she’s doing.”
