Robi answers the issues as he joins My Girl
By Napoleon Quintos
Solid fans of Robi Domingo will soon see the Atenean in his first television acting debut via My Girl. The Pinoy Big Brother Teen Edition Plus 2nd Big Placer, together with Josef Elizalde and 3rd Teen Placer Nicole Uysiuseng are the newest addition to the cast of the hit Koreanovela adaptation. My Girl gives Robi the opportunity to work with Kim Chiu who is one of his biggest crushes in showbiz. The two have met during the grand ABS-CBN Trade Launch last July 1, although up to know, Robi is still starstruck over the chinita teen idol.
During the pictorial for My Girl, Robi tells ABS-CBN.com his initial reaction after finding out that he will be working with Kim. "Inspiring (laughs)." But the 18-year old pre-med student instantly blushed when told that Kim already knows that he has a crush on her. However, Robi was later pleased to know that Kim finds him a nice guy.
In My Girl, Robi will play Vincent, the good lad out to rival Josef in winning the heart of Nicole who is the real Hannah in the teleserye. Robi is not bothered to play triangle to the Nicosef love team which was formed during their stay inside Kuya’s house, and only laughs at the idea of ruining the tandem. "Sobrang kinikilig po talaga ako sa Nicosef love team nila, on and off the set. Magkakapatid po kami sa set, trabaho lang po." says Robi. The True-Blue Atenista is also comfortable working with Josef, the Lethal Lasallite, despite the differences in their personalities. "Opposite attracts naman e (jokes). Everyone is unique naman pero it’s should not be a barrier para hindi magkasundo. Ngayon okay naman kami ni Josef."
Robi’s introduction in My Girl also raises an issue between him and Teen Big Winner Ejay Falcon. Contrary to the expectation of many that Ejay will be the first to have a showbiz project, it was Robi who was given his first teleserye. But Robi is not affected by negative rumors pitting him against Ejay. "Hindi ko naman naisip na may issue. Lahat po kami hawak ng ABS-CBN. Alam ko pong si Ejay magkaka-project din siya." he answers.
