Janine Gutierrez should’ve been a Kapamilya much earlier than she would’ve wanted to.
Paulo Avelino has revealed in a virtual conference that his leading lady in the upcoming series Marry Me, Marry You cried when her transfer to ABS-CBN was delayed.
“Quick trivia: Janine was supposed to be here maybe a few years back. Nagkaproblema lang with something. We have the same management, I got stories first hand.
“My manager called me, iyak daw nang iyak si Janine kasi ‘di makakalipat. So parang matagal nang ginusto ni Janine maging Kapamilya,” he shared.
Avelino found out about Gutierrez’s as they are both under the same management.
And he has always been supportive of her career.
“She has more to offer and she has been winning awards here and there. When it comes to Janine, I feel like a manager,” he said.
Both worked together in the film Ngayon Kaya where Avelino alluded to being a star in an upcoming project.
“Nung nagshu-shooting pa kami with our film nung ‘Ngayon Kaya,’ nagkukwento siya na may gagawin siyang serye. Ako parang, o baka pwede ako na lang. Pero at that time, joke pa lang. Medyo half joke. I was really hoping to work with Pau sa TV,” Gutierrez said.
“Alam mo ‘pag naniniwala ka talaga at sinasabi mo sa universe, nagkakatotoo. I’m happy na nagkatotoo lahat ng biro namin noon,” she added.
