In ‘Ikaw Lamang,’ Jake plays a ‘really bad’ Guy
by FFE Entertainment News Staff
Jake Cuenca and Kim Chiu are not strangers when it comes to sharing the acting screen. The two go back to Kim’s first ever teleserye ‘Sana Maulit Muli‘ in 2007 and they re-crossed paths in 2009 for the hit show ‘Tayong Dalawa.’
Little did they know that five years later they will have a reunion project. For the upcoming family drama ‘Ikaw Lamang,’ the 26-year-old actor said he is thrilled to work with the 23-year-old actress once again.
‘Excited to be working with kim again… From jasmine of #sanamaulitmuli to audrey of #tayongdalawa and now isabelle of #ikawlamang,’ said Jake in his Instagram account. ‘When i found ill be working with kim again i knew for sure this would be a fun show to do and you know what? i wasnt wrong! Thank you @chinitaprincess its always a pleasure… .’
‘Ikaw Lamang‘ will also star Coco Martin and Julia Montes.
Jake’s character in Tayong Dalawa, Dave, failed to win the love of Audrey, Kim’s character. Will Jake win over Kim this time? It’s unlikely. When asked by one of his fans if he will play the kontrabida role, Jake answered: ‘Yup. And when I’m bad I’m really bad.’
Jake has shared that he missed playing the ‘bad guy’ after he delved into the role of the compassionate Luis Sancuevas in ‘Maria Mercedes.’ He added that he aims to make his character ‘as dark as possible.’
