- Young actress Ylona Garcia is working with Robin Padilla for Sana Dalawa ang Puso
- The action star acts as a father figure for the teen star on set
- One day, a bouquet of flowers was sent to Ylona and Robin had a not so great reaction
On ABS-CBN's noontime drama Sana Dalawa ang Puso Ko, Robin Padilla plays Leo, the older brother of Ylona Garcia's Tads Tabayoyong.
But on set, Robin acts more like a father figure to the young actress.
Ylona revealed in a video interview with ASAP Chillout on March 23 that Robin "scolded" her on Valentine's Day.
Yllona's new love team partner and co-star, Henz Villaraiz, gave her a long stem rose with a thoughtful note for Valentine's.
Robin, who saw the rose, crossed his arms and glared at the 16-year-old actress.
"Pinagalitan niya ko," said Ylona with a little laugh.
She added: "Sorry po, tay! Para siyang tatay!"
Apparently, Robin also said if Ylona's real dad has already allowed her to entertain suitors. But if it's up to Robin, he won't allow it.
Ylona explained: "As in, 'Kung okay naman sa tatay mo, pero para sa'kin...'" And then Ylona imitated Robin's expression that time by raising her eyebrow.
The actress acknowledge that it was a sign of affection from the older actor who's looking out for her well-being.
In an earlier interview with PUSH back in January, Ylona also shared that Robin is like a brother in real life.
"Para kaming magkapatid talaga. Nakakatawa kasi kahit may mga lunch breaks kami parang parehas kami, the way we eat.
"Kasi one time for our food kasi may sinigang, so may rice di ba? Tapos may sinigang, the soup, the meat, then may gulay, ganon. So I poured the whole soup and ‘yun din ginawa niya sabi niya ‘Ay Ylona parehas pala tayo.’ Wala lang nakakatawa," said Ylona.
Ylona Garcia is a Filipino singer and actress. She was born and raised in Sydney, Australia.
At a young age, she has already performed as front act for several Filipino singers such as Martin Nievera, Sarah Geronimo, and Bamboo during their Australian concert tours.
