The lock-in taping of “I Left My Heart in Sorsogon,” Heart Evangelista’s new romantic-comedy TV series, is a bit delayed due to the time spent by its production team to find the perfect second leading man.
The second leading man will portray the role of ‘Makoy,’ the ex-boyfriend of the main character, ‘Celeste,’ who will be portrayed by Heart.
According to the actress, it appeared that the production team made it their primary goal to find the perfect actor for the role.
After some time, they were able to find all the qualities they need in the person of Paolo Contis, who also agreed to do the role.
The ability of Paolo to be an effective comedian and a drama actor at will, became the basis of the production team, as well as GMA bosses, to give the role to him.
Heart is also super excited to work with Paolo and her primary leading man, Richard Yap.
“I’m so excited kasi siyempre you have Richard and you have Michelle Dee and there’s Paolo,” Heart said.
She also said that finding the right actor to play Mikoy was indeed hard.

“Paolo was really… it was hard to find somebody to play Mikoy, and Paolo’s actually the first one na nag-script reading and parang lahat kami, na-feel na siya na nga ang perfect for the role,” the First Lady of Sorsogon said.
“So, I’m excited na nabuo na kami finally, kasi na-delay kami in the beginning kasi we needed someone like Paolo, and Paolo showed up,” Heart added.
The romcom series will air on GMA Network.
