Now that his transformation is finally complete, Xander Ford (formerly Marlou Arizala) shared that he wanted to get back on track and garner more projects that would make him just like the leading young men of Kapamilya. Xander said that it has been his desire to work with Daniel Padilla, Enrique Gil, and James Reid.
According to a report by ABS-CBN News, Xander Ford really idolizes Daniel, especially in his latest teleserye “La Luna Sangre.” He shared in a press conference:
“Pangarap ko po silang makatrabaho, lalo na po si Kuya Daniel Padilla. Idol ko po ‘yun dati pa.”
Xander said that he admires how Daniel handles his online bashers. He revealed:
“Kasi po si Kuya Daniel Padilla… kahit na sobrang gwapo niya, marami pong namba-bash sa kanya pero ipinapakita niya pa rin ‘yung tapang niya sa mga basher. Kahit laitin siya, nandun pa rin siya, nakatayo at nginingitian niya pa rin ‘yung mga tao.”
But what about the actresses whom he wants to be paired with onscreen or through a love team? Xander Ford said that he wants to work with Miles Ocampo, the actress whom he has been paired with in “Home Sweetie Home” before. The young man declared:
“Hindi kami naging super close. Pero sana ngayon maging super close pa po kami ‘pag nagkaroon po ng chance.”
Previously, Miles Ocampo was paired with Iñigo Pascual in 2016. According to her interview in Philippine Entertainment Portal, Miles considered Iñigo special when she was paired with him in Home Sweetie Home. She said:
“Sa ngayon, uso kasi ang mga loveteam-loveteam. Pero so far, masaya naman po ako na si Marlou Arquiza ang ka-loveteam ko.”
“Ilang beses na rin po akong nag-try ng loveteam. Una kong ka-loveteam si Marco Gumabao, tapos naging si CJ Navato, si Iñigo Pascual Actually, hindi naman po sa pag-aano… For me, ang pinaka-nagustuhan ng tao, si Iñigo po.”
