Singer Erik Santos must have really enjoyed his first taste of acting. A couple of days before his stint on “Maalaala Mo Kaya” aired, the singer told the press that his ultimate dream kissing scene partner is Maja Salvador.
“Kung bibigyan ng pagkakataon, gusto ko sana si Maja maka-kissing scene. Sino ba naman ang hindi magkakagusto sa kanyang hitsura!” exclaimed the “Star In A Million 1” winner in a recent interview.
Erik plays lead in his first “MMK” episode shot in Macau. He is paired with Kristel Moreno with whom he figures in multiple kissing scenes. He described Kristel as “a really OK” actress before putting out good words for Maja.
“Magaling siyang umarte and nirerespeto ko siya. Hinahangaan ko siya sa pagkanta at pag-arte,” added the pop act who attended an acting workshop under directors Mae Cruz and Laurice Guillen in preparation for “MMK.”
Believed to be long overdue, Erik’s acting debut will give audiences a chance to see him outside the singer mold. There will be a couple of singing sequences, but the episode’s big reveal is Erik displaying various emotions in portraying an OFW who applied as a singer at a hotel in Macau but ended up as a housekeeper.
