Kapamilya star Erich Gonzales is one "lucky" girl, for she was chosen to be paired with Thai superstar Mario Maurer in an upcoming film, "Suddenly It's Magic."
The film's story conference has already started three days ago. Erich and Mario will be shooting the major scenes in Ilocos and Thailand.
"Suddenly It's Magic" tells the story of a romantically jaded Filipina baker who is changed when she meets a Thai superstar who visits the Philippines to escape from his busy career.
"He gets very bored of the career and one day he just decided to go to the Philippines and met Erich," said Mario.
"Pastry chef ako rito tapos galing ako sa isang bad relationship na may pagka-bitter pagdating sa love and then I meet this Thai guy na talagang magbabago ng buhay ko," said Erich, who is very excited of the role.
The two instantly "clicked."
"Erich is funny... for me she is not a woman, she's a man. Joking. She can rap and beat box. [You're] kind of crazy" said Mario, who wants to tour Erich in Thailand.
"I’d bring her to Wat Phra Kaew. It's like a very old temple in Thailand… it's very beautiful there."
Mario has already taught Erich how to say "I love you" in Thai ("chan rak khun"). Are there chances the two fall in love with each other?
