Kapamilya artist Kristof Garcia admitted that he felt awkward at first working with his transwoman co-star Maria Angela Trajano at the media conference for ‘Love Bites’ with the press, including LionhearTV, on September 14, 2022.
Garcia explained that excitement replaced his awkwardness once he got to know Trajano.
“Noong una parang medyo naiilang, pero noong nakilala ko si Angela, and nabasa ko ‘yung story, sobrang na-excite ako. Napalitan ‘yun ng excitement, kasi first ko ito, na magkakaroon ng partner na transgender. And same lang, same lang with a natural woman. Kinilala ko din talaga si Angela at napakabait niyang tao.”
He also praised Trajano for her performance in their episode in the made-for-YouTube series.
“Congrats Maria Angela Trajano kasi napakagaling mo dito, sobrang napakabait nitong taong ito. Sobrang nagpapasalamat ako na nakasama ako dito.”
He then talked about their episode’s message about love.
“Siguro madaming mai-inspire dito na maging matapang na magmahal lalo. Kahit ano pang pagsubok ‘yan. Basta mahal mo isang tao, ilalaban at ilalaban mo ito. Dahil at the end of the day ‘yung pag-ibig pa rin talaga ‘yung mananaig eh. Maraming makaka-relate dito.”
Garcia and Trajano star in an episode of the ABS-CBN and RCD Narratives creation, ‘Love Bites.’
The made-for-YouTube series streams on the Kapamilya YouTube channel starting September 16 and lasts up to November 2022.
