KAPAMILYA star Enrique Gil turns 26 on March 30 as he wished that Liza Soberano would stay with him forever.
“Mahalin mo lang ako forever at wag mo lang akong iiwan,” Gil told Soberano when asked what birthday gift he would wish from Soberano, during an interview on “Tonight With Boy Abunda” on ABS CBN.
Despite being close together, Gil and Soberano have yet to confirm their relationship.
Gil also revealed his plans for his birthday.
“I just might stay in the beach house. The only birthday gift that I want is to be with, of course, Liza (Soberano).
Magkasama po kami sa birthday ko. And my sister who is in London now, she promised that she will be here for my birthday. So sabi ko dapat lang nandito ka para kumpleto,” he said.
Gil will also star in the latest Kapamilya fantaserye “Bagani,” his first action project in a lead role. He recalled shooting some scenes in the province.
“Sa Ilocos mainit. Naka-sandals lang kami so ‘yung buhangin mainit. Kapag nahuhulog kami, napapaso kami sa buhangin.
And kapag sandals kasi, kapag tumatakbo ka sa buhangin, mas mahirap gumalaw. Parang work out na din ‘yun. But it’s fun,” he said, in a recent interview with ABS CBN.
“Kailangan kahit nakikipaglaban, kailangan naka-flex. We had fight training, stunt training. We started doing it before the show pero ngayon, we do it before the scene na,” Gil said.
The actor also said that he hopes to pursue school in the future and take up marine biology and psychology.
“I really love the ocean while growing up. Every time ‘pag birthday ko sa March, everybody’s on vacation, we’re always there. And when I’m there, I just forget everything. You’re in a different world;
“And then when I see the beach, I always get the same feeling that it’s my birthday. That’s why we built this beach house. It’s closer to it.
“And we have so much resources in the Philippines. It’s kinda sad that a lot of tourists who come here to just study and take care of our beaches, we can’t even do it for ourselves. And we have to go out of the country just to study it even more,” Gil added.
