Kaye Abad is Guji Lorenzana’s new partner for the Pepper’s Roses chapter of Precious Hearts Romances presents Bud Brothers. Roxanne Guinoo was supposed to have played the role of Pepper, but she had reportedly wanted to shy away from sexy roles and refused to do kissing scenes and love scenes. (Every chapter of the Bud Brothers teleserye, featured a couple doing a love scene. During the press conference before Bud Brothers was launched, Business Unit Head Laurenti Dyogi had said that they wanted to cast actors who are ready to do kissing scenes because the story called for it.
Guji admitted that he was sad over Roxanne’s decision to back out of the series. Bud Brothers is Guji’s TV debut after having previously dabbled largely in music and theater. Guji shared that at first, there were a lot of things that went through his mind upon hearing that Roxanne would no longer be a part of the afternoon teleserye, like if it was his fault or if he was the problem. But eventually, Guji accepted and respected Roxanne’s reasons and just hoped that he may get to work with the actress on another project.
Replacing Roxanne is Tabing Ilog alum Kaye Abad who will play Pepper, a free-spirited kids show writer who will ask her childhood friend Rei, played by Guji, to pose as her boyfriend in order to settle a squabble between their fathers. But in the middle of their make-believe romance, Rei and Pepper will find themselves falling for each other for real.
Guji confessed that he at first felt jittery when he heard that Kaye was going to be his new partner. But the nervousness was mixed with excitement knowing that Kaye is a good actress, given that they no longer had the time to do workshops. “I’m really glad that I’m being paired with someone well known. I actually want to work with someone who’s a veteran like Kaye because I want to learn from her.”
When asked if there’s a possibility for real life romance to blossom, Guji smilingly admitted he’s actually beginning to like Kaye. “She glows on and off cam. She’s a great person and she’s my type: petite and very into music. I think I will fall for her a little bit everyday.”
