MANILA — Piolo Pascual said he is very excited about his upcoming family-oriented soap, “Hawak Kamay.”
“First of all, I’m working with four kids, these are child superstars. I’m also working with Iza. It’s different because it’s a family thing,”Piolo said in an interview for ABS-CBN News.
Piolo will be playing the role of Gin, a frustrated singer who will be forced into guardianship of his sisters’ children (Xyriel Manabat, Zaijan Jaranilla, Yesha Camile) when his sister sister (Jennifer Sevilla) and her husband (Lander Vera Perez) die in a car crash.
Piolo, who was left by his girlfriend (Nikki Gil), will get the help of lawyer Bianca (Iza Calzado) in the legal adoption of the children.
“Usually love triangle or love story pero ito, it’s more on the family side. Filipinos are very family-oriented so I believe na makaka-relate ang maraming pamilya. Para sa mga Pilipino talaga ito,” he added.
The prime time series will be the third major project of Piolo and Iza together after “Milan” in 2004 and “Starting Over Again” this year.
