Robin Padilla: ‘Respect very much needed in showbiz’

MANILA, Philippines — Kapamilya actor Robin Padilla demanded to talk to Richard Yap first before accepting the role in their new teleserye with Jodi Sta Maria.

In an interview with the press, Robin said he asked Richard’s permission to become the third wheel in the already tried-and-tested “JoChard” love team of Richard and Jodi.

“Ha? Kasama si Richard Yap? Ang alam ko kasi noong una, kami (Jodi) tapos naging si Richard. Natakot talaga ko kasi teka muna meron na silang pinagsamahan na dalawa eh. Kaya nag-request ako talaga na kung pwede makausap si Richard kung papayag siya,” Robin said during the recent press conference of the “Sana Dalawa Ang Puso Ko.”

In showbiz, Robin said, respect is very much needed.

“Kaya noong pinayagan naman ako ni Richard, unti-unti nawala yung pag-aalinlangan ko. Kasi may karapatan si Richard eh na ‘Teka, bat ganun?’ Pero bilib naman talaga ko kasi gentleman siya at pumayag naman siya.”

Regarding his meeting with Richard, Robin said it went very well but at first, it was so serious.  

“Serious kasi noong una pero nadala namin ‘yung kwentuhan kung saan-saan, hangggang sa nakarating na kami sa UFC, ‘yung suntukan, hanggang napagusapan na ‘yung work namin, na pagbutihan namin ‘yung show,” the controversial “Pilipinas Got Talent” host said.

For his part, Richard said when he heard that Robin wanted to talk to him, he first taught that it was going to be a “getting to know each other” meeting only.

“Hindi ko naman talaga alam kung ano ‘yung concerns niya. So hindi ako nag-aalangan na magkita kami talaga,” Richard said.    

“Maybe that’s the reason why he is Robin Padilla is because of his humility. Kumbaga hindi n’ya nakikita kung gaano siya kalaking artista. Nung nalaman namin na makakatrabaho namin siya, kami ‘yung parang ‘Ha? Makakasama naming siya?’ Kasi di ba nakikita mo sa TV, iniidolo ng napakaraming tao. Ako personally, humanga ako sa kanya sa pagiging humble niya,” Jodi said.

“Nagpapasalamat siya sa amin when in fact, kami ang dapat magpasalamat sa kanya. Kasi mahirap maghanap ng isang charater na papasok dito sa show na babagay sa story na ito. Siya lang ang pwedeng gumanap nun,” Richard assured.
