“Excited na rin ako na makita nila ‘yung eksena namin na ‘yun, kung paano kami magtatagpo, kung papaano kami magi-interact. ‘Yung galing sa present na makiki-interact dun sa mga tao sa past.

“Kung ano ‘yung sa tingin mo tama, ipaglalaban mo. Marami kayong makikitang mga eksenang ganun sa serye na ito,” he shared.
