Did you know Dingdong Dantes and Enrique Gil are relatives?

Kapuso star Dingdong Dantes and Kapamilya teen idol Enrique Gil are two of the hottest leading men in our country.

But did you know that the two are actually related?

They are together for a new movie “Seven Sundays”. In an interview, the two shared how they first met – in a family reunion. They met when Enrique was still a young boy.

“First time ko siya nakilala parang family reunion ng mga relatives. Nakita ko lang siya [and I didn’t really watch the other network] pero sabi ko ‘oh, artista.’ But I knew I saw you somewhere…ang tagal na noon, remember? Bata pa ako noon,” Enrique shared.

[I first met him when we had a family reunion. I just saw him and I said “oh, an actor”. But I knew I saw you somewhere. That was a long time ago, though. Remember? I was just a kid.]

He added, “Wala pa ako sa showbiz noong first time kaming nagkita.” [I think I still was not in showbiz when I first met you]

They worked together in the 2013 film She’s The One alongside Bea Alonzo. They played the two male leads of the movie.

“Parang noong [She’s the One] kasi, hindi pa kami close noon, not as close as now,” Enrique continued, “Feeling ko mas okay kami ngayon, compared before.”

[Back then, we were not as close. I feel we are closer now than we were before.]

They will share the big screen again with Seven Sundays starring Ronaldo Valdez, Aga Muchlach and Cristine Reyes.
