"Hindi na namin sini-seryoso 'yung mga ganoong bagay. Kasi matanda na din kami para magaway-away pa sa mga ganyan. Kumbaga hindi na namin tini-take it as a threat exactly. It's really not a threat. It's more of we are just really happy and taking good care of whatever we have as artists," Dee said.
For his part, Lim said hebelieves that their work would be a lot easier if they will just ignore the so-called "competition."
"Siguro mas magiging okay 'yung chemistry doon sa screen kung walang competition," Lim said.
"At saka sa dami ng shows ng ABS-CBN, lahat kami nabibigyan ng trabaho," Dee added.
Dee even said that he admired Lim's work ethic.
"Noong ginagawa namin 'yung 'The Reunion' ay tahi-tahimik lang 'yan. Nagse-search siya ng video ng 'The Avengers.' Sabi ko, 'Ano ang ginagawa mo?' Sabi niya, 'Wala, tinitignan ko lang.' Eh yung susunod naming kukunan eh 'yung Avengers na scene. Sabi ko, 'Ah kaya niya tinignan kasi gusto niyang mai-arte ng maayos ang eksena.' Si Xian tahimik lang 'yan pero as much as possible ay pinag-aaralan niya (ang eksena)," Dee shared.
Aside from Lim and Dee, "Ina Kapatid Anak" also stars Maja Salvador and Kim Chiu.
