he sinabi "I'm madly in pag-ibig with Leighton, so that's what helps on my behalf, maybe so much that she doesn't even have to be in pag-ibig with me. I pag-ibig enough, she's mine. I'm incredibly close with her, she's a lovely girl. I think she was 20 and I was 19 when we started the ipakita and it's such a kind of development stage of young adulthood. And to grow up on the ipakita and to go through that together, you know you're going to have a very strong bond. But she is a remarkable talent and there is just sometimes you can't put things into words with connections or sparks or when you're pagganap with someone. We've got the right pairing, I guess."
