Bot Glorioso – The Philippine Star

While it can be a hard transition for other men moving from being single to being someone’s better half, Josh Colet doesn’t think there are any major adjustments to do as husband to former MYX VJ Dani Mortel.

“It’s amazing! ‘Yun lang talaga,” said Josh when asked how has he been adjusting to married life so far during the virtual media conference for The Goodbye Girl episode titled Legally Blind that he’s starring in with Elisse Joson. “Marami kasi akong kaibigan na kasal na at ‘yun ang lagi nilang sinasabi na masaya s’ya. It’s amazing, and you really develop with your partner differently ‘pag kinasal na kayo.

“And it might not be the same for everybody, pero para sa akin, we grew more together noong kinasal na kami. So, bottom line, amazing, super saya,” he added.

It was in October of last year when Josh and VJ Dani got married, or three months after he proposed marriage to her in July, and, after going steady for more than two years.

Josh said not much has changed in his views regarding relationships after becoming a married guy. “With relationship views, wala masyadong nag-bago, kasi ever since ganito naman talaga ako. Parang we just took a ride together, and I just found the right person to grow (old) with. So, walang masyadong views na nag-change. What happened was, I found somebody who has similar views as me, that’s why it worked out.”

According to the Kapamilya actor, settling down is not something to be rushed about.

“I think a lot of people can relate with me when I say na, you just know,” he reasoned out. “Malalaman mo lang ‘yun talaga. It takes time at kapag tumagal ka sa relationship at alam mong tama talaga ‘yung taong para sa ‘yo, malalaman mo lang.”

He agreed that there are people who are blinded by love but he cannot blame them “because, oftentimes, they are being swayed by their emotions at ‘yung iba naman nag-mamadali sa pag-ibig o minamadali nila ‘yung proseso at di nakukuntento so nag-hahanap ng iba.

His character as the womanizer named Ean in Legally Blind is Josh’s complete opposite. He said that he never experienced being flirted with by a girl in the same way that his character is being seduced by a woman. “Wala naman akong naging ganung experience,” he amusingly said.

What he found memorable was the opportunity to work with Elisse. They have known each other since their showbiz newbie days.

“Actually, we’ve known each other since way back,” said Josh, “nag-sisimula pa lang kami sa modeling gigs and we would attend acting workshops. But acting-wise, this is our first time to work together, which is nice. When we saw each other, wala ng parang warm-up, kwentuhan na agad at s’yempre maganda ‘yun that you’re comfortable (with your co-actor).”

Most importantly, Josh said he was able to focus on plunging himself into the role.

“For me, it was very light on the set because everybody was professional. Of course, with the situation right now (global health scare), we felt safe (in a lock-in setup) and that’s one important thing right now.”

Asked what lesson the audience can learn from his character, Josh gave a brief but clear response by saying, “Don’t let down there get to up here (pointing to his head).”

Produced by Dreamscape Entertainment and Clever Minds, Inc., and directed by Derick Cabrido, The Goodbye Girl is a six-episode series that is streaming worldwide exclusively on the iWantTFC app and website, with new episodes dropping daily. The episode Legally Blind will stream on Feb. 18.
