Young actors Kira Balinger and Grae Fernandez, who are in the cast of the Kapamilya Channel series Ang Sa Iyo ay Akin, are being touted as a loveteam in the mold of the Bea Alonzo-John Lloyd Cruz tandem.
Kira admits feeling giddy when doing scenes with Grae who plays her love interest.
In a video conference held 1 December for the series’ book two, Kira said in a mix of English and Filipino that she feels Grae’s passion and notices the way he looks at her during their intimate scenes. But love will have to wait, she added, and that the thrill of being in a tandem is enough, for now.
Grae said: “I trust that she trusts me as an actor.”
He pointed out the chemistry that sparks their working relationship.
Another cast member, Joseph Marco, praised Kira and Grae for their heartfelt portrayals.
Kira said she is humbled and overwhelmed by the audience’s warm reception of her tandem with Grae. What struck her most, she added, was the way the audience identified with the painful parts in the series’ story.
Ang Sa Iyo ay Akin streams weeknights at 8:40 p.m. on the Kapamilya Channel, Kapamilya Online Live, iWanTFC, TFC and A2Z Channel 11.
