MANILA, Philippines – “Senior High” stars Xyriel Manabat and Andrea Brillantes revealed on Tuesday that they are willing to work together on a girls’ love (GL) series. 

During a press conference, Manabat was questioned about her comfort level in being paired with a female co-star for a show. In response, she expressed that she feels more at ease working alongside another female artist.

Feeling ko kung mag-o-on cam ako or on-screen na first kissing scene, gusto ko talaga sa babae, kasi feeling ko mas komportable ako ‘pag ganoon and feeling ko, walang ilanganan, less issue, less hassle. Experience siya eh, so parang fulfilling siya for an experience of an actress,” she said.

When questioned about a specific actress she’d like to collaborate with, Manabat playfully hinted that she has jokingly suggested to Brillantes the idea of working together in a girls’ love series.

Open naman po for any, pero dati kasi bago ako bumalik sa ‘Dirty Linen’ may mga kaasaran po ako, sabi ko ‘pag ikaw, pinormahan ko,’ tas kinakantahan ko siya, tinititigan ko siya sa mata,” the actress said.

Tas kinikilig naman siya sa ‘kin … Basta matalik ko po siyang kaibigan, tumatawa siya ngayon, kinikilig siya ngayon, dati kasi inaasar ko siya, … kasi gusto niya rin ‘yung ganoong role,” she added.

Brillantes also affirmed her desire to participate in a girls’ love series, emphasizing the need for more television shows that explore lesbian relationships.

“I mean, pansin po lang kasi, there’s a lot of BL series now. Hindi pa po masyadong marami sa GL. So like, if ever lang naman po,” Brillantes said.

“I would be comfortable doing it with my best friend, kasi magaling siyang actress eh, and marami kaming makukuha sa isa’t isa,” she added, ponting Manabat. 

Manabat and Brillantes are not the only pair of Kapamilya actresses to express their willingness to act in a “GL” series.

In January 2023, Janella Salvador and Jane de Leon also welcomed a possible “GL” project, after their chemistry in “Darna” was loved by the fans. 

Meanwhile, Kyle Echarri said he is open to doing a BL project in the future with his onscreen and offscreen bestfriend JK Labajo. 

Sa totoo lang, ‘yung chemistry namin, kaya naming mag-TimPoch,” Echarri said, referring to the onscreen partnership of Zaijian Jaranilla and Miggy Jimenez in the youth series.

As long as si JK. Basta si JK. Magkasama kami, ‘We Love OPM’ pa lang. ‘The Voice Kids’ pa lang, d’un na kami nagkakilala,” he continued.
