Rocco Nacino and Sanya Lopez aren’t shy to admit they treat each other in a special manner. However, the two are quick to shut down speculations they are already an item.
In a recent interview with Bulletin Entertainment, Rocco and Sanya said they want to take everything slowly but surely.
“Sa ngayon kasi madalas po kami napagkakamalan na kami na dahil sobrang close namin. Pero I can honestly say na hindi pa, wala pa sa ganu’ng estado,” Sanya said.
Nevertheless, she sees the actor as boyfriend material.
“Nakita ko naman kung paano po siya mag-alaga lalo na sa magulang niya,” she shared. “Kasi I believe kapag ang isang lalaki mapagmahal sa magulang, boyfriend material talaga ’yan.”
According to the actress, their level of closeness has stepped up, especially now that they even share all things personal. She also went on to share that Rocco helps her career-wise.
“Like pagdating sa set, kapag meron po akong hindi makuha sa mga eksena, tinutulungan niya ako. I can say na talagang inaalagaan niya ako,” Sanya maintained.
Cliché as it may sound but Rocco, on his part, said work is their utmost priority at the moment.
“Kami naman ni Sanya hindi kami nagmamadali (na pumasok sa relasyon), kasi maayos ’yung career namin at eto ’yung priorities namin sa ngayon,” he said. “Sayang din naman kasi ’yung mga opportunities na binibigay sa amin.”
He describes Sanya as someone who inspires him a lot.
“But sabi ko nga, it all goes down to our priorities. And I believe if it goes there, it goes, so let’s wait na lang,” he noted.
During the interview, Sanya, who admitted she is NBSB (no boyfriend since birth), told Rocco “Please be careful with my heart,” if and when they decide to take their relationship to the next level.
“Kung nagkataon na maging kami nga in the future, ’yun lang sana, ingatan niya ’yung puso ko,” she said, smiling.
“Ako naman malaki ang respeto ko kay Sanya. Mahalaga siya sa akin, at laging bukas ’yung pinto ko sa pag-ibig. ’Wag lang natin madiliin, it will get in the right time,” Rocco countered.
Click as love team
Rocco and Sanya were first paired on “Encantadia” as Aquil and Danaya respectively and the two admitted they did not expect their onscreen chemistry to be that effective. Fans even dubbed them GMA’s newest love team to watch.
“I’ve never been paired with someone na parang sa isang love team,” Rocco shared. “So ako nabibigla din ako sa mga good news na nare-receive namin regarding our love team na okay daw pala pagsamahin at kinikilig ang mga fans.”
Sanya, who gained huge popularity via the now-defunct fantasy series, credited part of her success to Rocco.
“Kasi nu’ng nagkasama kami ni Rocco, sobrang naging mainit po ’yung pagtanggap ng mga tao,” she said, citing how their love team trended on social media sites numerous times.
Rocco admitted they’re pressured in sustaining the viewer’s positive response.
“Kasi dito mate-test kung ’yung samahan namin ay talaga patok sa mga tao,” he said.
The idea challenges the actor.
“Ito ’yung masaya kasi it put us at the top of the game and I’m really confident naman na kaya namin ’to ni Sanya,” he maintained.
The tandem continues
For those who can’t get enough of Rocco and Sanya’s tandem, GMA pairs the two anew via the upcoming series “Haplos.”
“Haplos” is a series that holds a message about genuine love for the family and how love always reigns more victorious than any. It is also has a touch of enchantment and sensuality that revolves around the intertwined lives of Angela (Sanya), Lucille (Thea Tolentino), Gerald (Rocco) and Benedict (Pancho Magno).
“Actually nakakagulat po na after ng ‘Enca,’ meron po akong ulit project,” Sanya enthused. “I’m so honored and grateful lang po talaga na pinagkakatiwalaan ako ng GMA.”
Rocco is also grateful especially now that he has been given a chance to work with Sanya anew.
“Napakalaking bonus po nu’ng makatrabaho ko siya ulit. Kaya talaga sobrang masayang-masaya ako na bukod sa may trabaho ako, kasama ko pa si Sanya,” he said.
“Haplos” director Gil Tejada Jr. revealed RocSan is definitely the first choice for the roles.
“Kasi we all know that they are really being groomed by the Network,” he said.
Aside from being a drama series, “Haplos” also has the elements of fantasy, with Sanya and Thea’s characters having special powers.
Sanya shared, “Ako po dito ay may powers wherein ’yung haplos ko po ay may healing properties than can soothe emotions and even cure illness.”
How does she differentiate Danaya from Angela, we asked.
“Si Danaya po sobrang strong ng personality niya, ’yung soft side niya po kasi hindi mapapansin sa ‘Enca,’ si Angela naman super soft ’yung personality niya lalo na pagdating sa pamilya pero to the point na gagawin niya lahat para maalagaan ’yung mga mahal niya,” she explained.
The good teacher?
Rocco teased the press that there will be a lot more of kissing scenes between him and Sanya on the show.
“’Yan po ’yung isa talaga sa mga inaabangan ng mga fans,” he admitted. “Pero siyempre iniba po namin ’yung atake, like iba kila Danaya and Aquil pero at the same time, kikiligin pa rin ang mga audience.”
Rocco is Sanya’s first reel and real kiss.
“Si Rocco po ang nagturo sa akin,” she said, laughing.
According to Sanya, Rocco makes sure she feels comfortable doing such scenes as “hindi siya nagte-take advantage.”
“’Pag sa kissing scenes po lagi niya ako tinatanong ‘Oh okay lang ba na ganito ’yung mangyari,’ thankful ako kasi hindi niya ako binibigla,” she maintained. “And si Rocco naman super gentleman siya, tinutulungan niya ako palagi.”
Is she open to doing a bed scene with the actor?
“Kung kailangan po gagawin ko. Kasi siyempre parte po ng trabaho ko ’yun as an actress,” she said.
Airing beginning July 10 on GMA afternoon prime, “Haplos” also stars Patricia Javier, Emilio Garcia, Francine Prieto, Diva Montelaba, and Celia Rodriguez.
