ANDREA Torres has reason to feel proud because her performance as twin sisters Jasmine and Juliet in the primetime drama series, “The Better Woman”, continues to elicit positive feedback from various quarters who love watching the intriguing sex-drama on weeknights. They appreciate it that she is able to create two distinct personalities to make sure that Jasmine and Juliet are totally different from one another.
“With the help of our director Mark Sicat de la Cruz, we made sure na sa kilos, sa anyo at sa pananalita ibang-iba talaga ang kambal sa isa’t isa,” says Andrea. “It’s not easy to do it at kung minsan nga, ako mismo, nako-confuse, but with my leading man, Derek Ramsay, always being there to remind na, o hindi ka si Juliet dito, si Jasmine ka, I’m glad na naitatawid ko naman nang maayos gabi-gabi ang performances ko as twin sisters na magkaiba ang ugali.”
How true are the rumors that she and Derek have developed their romantic feelings for each other since she went with him on a trip to Shanghai for a frisbee competition and she even watched him when he played as a cager at the Maharlika Pilipinas Basketball League or MPBL?
“He invited me, so sumama ako at nanood ng game nila,” she says. “First time for me to experience. I have no idea kasi kung ano ba ang buhay ng isang atleta at nakita ko personally ang hirap ng training, so lalong tumaas ang respeto ko sa kanila. Lalo kay Derek na may regular tapings pa kami but hindi napapabayaan ang sports niya. Talagang non-stop siya in pushing his body to be able to represent our country kahit sa ibang bansa.”
In a separate interview, Derek says he’s thankful to Andrea for being very supportive. “I’m really amazed at how patient and understanding she is. Walang kaartehan sa katawan. Mainit man o kahit umuulan, nandoon siya to show her support.”
So what’s the real status between them now? “I think we are now more than friends. We have developed a really very strong friendship in such a short period of time and let’s just say that I like where it’s going.”
Well, what can we say? It looks like their hot love scenes in “The Better Woman” are really looking more and more sensually realistic by the day. They’re not just faking it anymore! And we’re not surprised. Looks like love is in the air and there’s nothing wrong about that, since we all know that they are both currently loveless at the moment. Last we heard, when Derek had a new movie offer, he even suggested that Andrea also be included in its cast. That shows how really smitten he is with Andrea!
