Kiko Estrada Goes Back To GMA-7Kiko Estrada is happy to be back on GMA-7, and he wants to stay there forever. He said this after he was left empty by ABS-CBN, following his stint on "Angelito: Ang Bagong Yugto" and "Annaliza."
Kiko was originally a part of GMA Network's youth-oriented show, "Tween Hearts." He was supposed to be Julia Barretto's leading man for "Mirabella," but Enrique Gil got chosen in the end.
Now, Kiko is back with GMA-7 and he will star alongside Bea Binena, Jake Vargas and Kim Rodriguez for "Strawberry Lane." He's finally back home, so he is thankful to GMA-7 for giving him another chance. "Kaya nga sabi ko, I will stay here forever."
He wasn't able to hide his tears when GMA-7 told him he was going to have another teleserye. It was "tears of joy," he added. He called his mother and grandmother to tell them the good news.
He then told his relatives about it, and he also cried in front of them. He was so happy that time that they also cried for him because they can see how happy the project made him feel.
Kiko didn't have work for almost nine months, so he kept on thinking what to do with his career. He carried in his heart the fact that he lost his chance to be a part of "Mirabella."
Right now that he has a new show, all those feelings went away. God is good, Kiko said, because He gave him what he has been praying for.
He decided to forget what happened to him on "Mirabella." He already accepted what happened back then. "Bumabalik-balik siya sa akin, pero pinipilit kong kalimutan."
When he finally accepted it, he has a new show already and he doesn't want to blame anyone anymore. He just prays and asks for guidance. He prayed for a chance to have a teleserye once more.
Meanwhile, Kiko is already expecting rumors that will link him to Kim. They are just friends for now, but he said that he's open to the possibility of courting his co-star on "Strawberry Lane."
For now, their priority is their careers, so they want to remain friends. "Hindi natin alam, baka pagtagal-tagal, ligawan ko din siya." At least, he is honest that he has a crush on her. Kiko is only hopeful that Kim will agree to be his girlfriend when he courts her.
Kim already met Kiko's mother, former actress Cheska Diaz. His mom and his family love her, Kiko said, adding that he only wants Cheska to meet his new friends.
Cheska thought that they are already a couple, but he told his mother that they are just friends. Cheska said Kim is gorgeous and she looks forward to getting to know her better.
Kim also met Gary Estrada, Kiko's father, during the latter's birthday. He was touched because Kim made an effort to attend his birthday even though she was taping a show that day.
