Kristoffer Martin On Rekindling Of Romance With Joyce Ching In 'Hahamakin Ang Lahat': 'We're Not Closing Our Doors'

KRISTOFFER MARTIN started as a child actor then became a teen star and won a best supporting actor award for “Oros”. More recently, he won the Star Awards best actor in a single performance for “Magpakailanman”. He now plays his most mature role to date in “Hahamakin ang Lahat” where he shows off his buff physique in several scenes, the result of diligent workouts. He plays Junjun Labsat, a hardworking young man who falls in love with Joyce Ching as Rachel Tan Ke, who comes from a rich Chinese family.

“When Joyce gets pregnant and her boyfriend, played by newcomer Bruno Gabriel, won’t marry her, ako ang umakong maging ama ng isisilang niyang baby,” says Kristoffer. “But the problem is parang Romeo and Juliet ang love story namin kasi magkaaway ang mga magulang namin. My mom is Snooky Serna, who used to work as a maid sa family ng mother ni Joyce, si Eula Valdes. Former best friends sila. Eula falls in love with a Pinoy, Ariel Rivera, and her dad, Chinggoy Alonzo, is against this kasi gusto niya Chinese rin ang mapangasawa ng mga anak niya. When Eula eloped with Ariel, Chinggoy asked Snooky kung nasaan si Eula and she revealed na kasama si Ariel so hinabol sila and Ariel dies in an accident. Galit na galit si Eula kay Snooky at nag-away sila and Eula accidentally poured acid on the face of Snooky so she is disfigured. Yun ang pinag-ugatan ng malaking away nila for life.”

Also in the cast are Marina Benipayo as the sister of Eula who’s married to Jett Pangan with Thea Tolentino as their daughter. Kristoffer’s dad is Mark Abaya and playing his younger sister is Mona Louise Rey, with Renz Valerio as his best friend. “Hahamakin ang Lahat” starts airing on Monday, replacing “Sinungaling Mong Puso” on GMA-7’s Afternoon Prime. Kris and Joyce used to be on. Now, they have a number of kissing scenes in the show. Wasn’t their former romantic relationship somehow rekindled by their love scenes?

“To be honest, na-miss ko si Joyce that time na hindi kami nagkikita,” says Kris. “So ngayon na we’re working together again, ang sarap mag-flashback about our past. Kung may mare-rekindle between us, all I can say is that we’re not closing our doors, lalo na ngayong lagi na naman kaming nagkikita, nag-mature na kami and we’ve become so comfortable with each other.”
