Enrique Gil and Sam Concepcion Don't Mind Being Second Choice

Young actors Enrique Gil and Sam Concepcion said they are grateful to be a part of Star Cinema's newest film, "Way Back Home."

Gil and Concepcion replaced Albie Casiño and the late AJ Perez, respectively, as the leading men of Kathryn Bernardo and Julia Montes.

The 2 young actors said they do not mind being second choice for the film.

"[I am] Very grateful and thankful for this project, siyempre [kasi] first time kong makatrabaho sina Julia at Kathryn. We did 'Shout Out!' before pero acting-wise, ngayon lang kami nagkatrabaho so it's a very different and wonderful experience," Concepcion said.

"It's a big role 'yung pino-portray namin ni Enrique so we just give our all and best in the movie and hopefully magustuhan ng tao."

For his part, Gil said, "Super happy po at super thankful [ako] sa Star Cinema na kami ang pinili, kasi wala talaga akong alam sa previous leading men. I just got a call na 'hey, I want you to do this movie,' so 'yun po, very grateful po."

Jerry Lopez Sineneng, director of "Way Back Home," said it was management's decision to replace Casiño, who was rumored to be the father of Andi Eigenmann's baby.

"I think I'm not in a position to talk about it, management decision po. Pero sasabihin ko po na good replacement po itong dalawang gwapong ito. Good replacement po talaga, kung replacement na matatawag," Sineneng said.

"Way Back Home" will hit theaters on August 17.
