Benjamin Alves Talks About The Real Score Between Him And Glaiza De Castro

BENJAMIN ALVES has been linked to Glaiza de Castro since they were paired in “Dading”. He even helped Glaiza find the appropriate title for her solo album, “Synthesis”, that gave Glaiza an award in the recent PMPC Star Music Awards. But he says they’re just very good friends.

“We’re both very busy,” he adds. “I’m in ‘Beautiful Strangers’. I’ve just finished doing ‘Gayuma’ for QCinema Filmfest where I did some daring love scenes and I am now doing two more new movies. Si Glaiza naman, wala siya rito, she’s doing a concert series in several cities in Canada. We’re just both more focused on our careers. Sana nga, magkatrabaho kami uli kasi matagal na rin yung ‘Dading’ na huli naming pinagsamahan.”

Benjamin is very thankful to have been part of “Beautiful Strangers” that is ending soon. “Maganda ang role ko as Lawrence, the son of Christopher de Leon and Dina Bonnevie, and I’m so happy it gave me the chance with these two accomplished actors in local showbiz who I’ve seen doing great work in some films in the past. Marami akong natutuhan just by doing some scenes with them and acting with them.”

This week, he tries to convince his wife Lovi Poe as Joyce to forgive his dad Christopher as Ronaldo for the latter’s sins against Lovi as he can’t just disregard the fact that he’s his dad. Lovi agrees and remains living with Benjamin’s family, but her husband gets terribly jealous when he sees her talking to ex-BF Rocco Nacino as Noel. The truth is that Rocco is just telling Lovi that he has already proposed marriage to Heart Evangelista as Kristine. Dina as Alejandra meddles and asks Lovi if she is cheating on Benjamin. Lovi denies it but they won’t believe her. Lovi and Heart continue to plot against Dina to expose her evil deeds, but Dina has her own counter moves against them.
