Rumors have it that Derek Ramsay and “Kidlat” love interest Nadine Samonte are carrying their on screen romance over to real life.
The two stars reportedly disappeared on the set of “Kidlat,” without so much as a by your leave to anyone in the production team.
Derek and Nadine denied this in separate interviews at the thanksgiving party TV5 threw for the fantasy-action series’ outstanding performance, ratings wise.
“Ano kami bata?” Nadine protested. “Hindi kami tumakas. Nagpapaalam kami sa production (staff). At pag umaalis kami ni Derek, kasama ang mga staff.”
Derek, who sat in a separate chair away from Nadine repeated the same thing.
“Lumalabas kami kapag lunch break at kapag nasa area kami (ng mga restaurants).”
Derek, now popularly known as Kidlat, adds that he and Nadine haven’t dated on their own. They always have company (e.g. co-star Baron Geisler).
But the mutual attraction is there.
Derek describes Nadine as interesting, someone he’d love to know better.
Meanwhile, Nadine admits that she and Derek enjoy each other’s company. And she welcomes the idea of knowing him real well.
“Gusto ko matibay ang foundation ng relasyon namin. Ayaw kong pumasok sa sitwasyon na pag may negative (na sinabi) about him, masasaktan ako.”
Yes, she admits they’ve asked each other private questions. But the status of their relationship is not one of them.
But the fact that Nadine asked Derek pointblank if he’s seeing someone and if something special exists between him and Cristine is already a good sign for the romantics out there.
“Ayaw kong pumasok sa isang situation na magulo. Iwas ako sa gulo,” she explains.
As for Derek, all he has to say is that he finds Nadine interesting. Interesting enough to want to know her better.
“Only time will tell if (the relationship) will grow,” he adds. Derek would rather cross the bridge when he gets there.
If and when that magical moment comes, Nadine promised that she’ll be more more than happy to announce it to the world.
“Kung kami, sasabihin namin. Pareho kaming single. Honest ako. At sa showbiz, walang namang maitatago. Lalabas at lalabas yan.”
Now you know why Nadine exudes a special glow and Derek himself is keeping his cards close to his chest.
“Malalaman natin kapag nandiyan na,” he says.
