After his Your Song Presents Isla stint, Pinoy Big Brother Double Up ex-housemate Hermes Bautista will be in the cast of Agimat Presents Elias Paniki which is top-billed by action prince Jake Cuenca. “Yung role ko dito ay isa sa mga ka-grupo ni Elias. Parang mga modern-day albularyos kami kasama sina Xian Lim tsaka si Kelly Misa. Sobrang thankful ako kasi at least may kasunod agad na opportunity silang binibigay sa akin. At the same time sobrang excited ko at kinakabahan din kasi yung mga kasama namin sa Elias beterano tsaka mga award-winning stars din talaga. Kaya malaking challenge talaga sa akin na i-improve yung acting ko since baguhan lang ako. Madami pang dapat matutunan talaga kaya practice-practice lang,” he said in a recent interview with ABS-CBN.com. Hermes has already attended several workshops plus martial arts training sessions as part of his preparations for this project.
But while things are going smoothly in terms of his showbiz career, the 23-year-old hunk’s blossoming romance with fellow ex-housemate Cathy Remperas seems to have stagnated. The two haven’t seen each other since they finished taping Your Song Presents Isla. “Okay lang po, friends kami. Hindi kami masyado nagkikita at nakakapag-usap kasi busy din siya sa PHR (Precious Hearts Romances Presents: Love Me Again) niya e.” When asked if he got jealous of Johan Santos who has been paired up with Cathy for the said afternoon soap, Hermes simply replied, “Hindi ako nagseselos kasi bagay naman sila. Wala namang ganon na ano e. Okay lang kasi siyempre masaya ako para sa kanila kasi yung career nila gumaganda yung takbo, may mga projects sila.”
Hermes and Cathy had a very close relationship during their stint in PBB and he insists that Johan being very vocal about his huge crush on his leading lady does not affect him. “Ay hindi naman kasi kung maging sila or magkagustuhan, wala namang problema e. Friends naman kaming tatlo. Kahit si Johan close naman kami nun. [Hindi ko ipaglalaban si Cathy] kasi siguro ano po, ngayon work muna.” Hermes, who is a nursing graduate, further shared that his love life will take a backseat for now as he concentrates on pursuing a career as an actor. “Sa ngayon wala pa naman akong ibang nagugustuhan kasi trabaho muna siguro tsaka siyempre sa personal na buhay din maraming inaayos. Wala talagang nagmamahal sa akin ngayon. Kung meron sasabihin ko sa inyo.”
