Erich Gonzales hasn't been 'touched'
AT 19, sumusumpa si Erich Gonzales na wala pa siyang karanasansa pag-ibig lalo na sa sex.
Do know na ’di pa niya nararanasan ang magkaroon ng boyfriend bagama’t inaamin niyang maraming umaalialigid sa kanya. Karamihan, fellow young actors niya.
But Erich wouldn’t want to name names. “Baka, itanggi nila, ’di kawawa naman ako,” inosenteng katuwiran niya.
This is why, aniya, when in one of her scenes in her maituturing na first title role sa tv series Katorse on ABS CBN, she had to submit to a kissing scene with Ejay Falcon, she had to ask their director, Malu Sevilla, how she expects her to do it.
E, nagkataon din daw na iyon din ang first kissing scene ni Ejay on the small screen. Hayan tuloy, for that particular eksena, kinailangan nilang i-workshop ni Gina Alajar.
So, how did it finally come out? The kissing scene, tanong namin kay Erich.
“Well, para sa akin, super,” sagot niya, giggling. “Sana, ganundin ang maging reaction ng manonood.
“Sobra parehong nerbiyos namin habang kinukunan ang eksena.”

A TV remake of a movie, produced by Regal Films and which served as Dina Bonnevie’s launching vehicle, aware si Erich na somehow ikukumpara ang kanyang acting kay Dina, who is now considered one of our truly best actresses.
Napanood ba niya ang original version ng Katorse?
“Opo,” sagot ni Erich. “Pati na rin ni Ejay at ni Xian (Lim, who is introduced in the series).
“Pero, sabi naman sa amin ni Direk Malu, we should not copy the acting nina Ms. D, pati na rin ng kanyang dalawang kapareha sa movie.
“Puwede daw naming i-interpret ang aming roles the way we want it.
“Which is what we did.”
Dina’s leading men in the original Katorse were Gabby Concepcion and the late Alfie Anido.
