MANILA, Philippines - Actress Erich Gonzales is thrilled to work again with "Walang Hanggan" star Coco Martin in ABS-CBN's upcoming TV project.

Gonzales will be the newest leading lady of Martin in the superhero series titled "Juan dela Cruz".

They last worked together in "Noy", a 2010 indie film that centers on a journalist chronicling the campaign trail of his namesake and then-presidential aspirant Sen. Benigno "Noynoy" Aquino III.

“Masaya katrabaho si Coco. Last namin nagkatrabaho sa isang indie film, ngayon naman sa isang teleserye,” Gonzales told Push.com.ph at Star Magic’s charity program at the Quezon City Circle last Saturday.

"Coco is one of the finest actors to date kaya blessed ako to work with him," she added.

Gonzales said she and Martin already met for the story conference of "Juan dela Cruz", along with seasoned actor Albert Martinez and the country's "Divine Diva", Zsa Zsa Padilla.

The Kapamilya actress said of her newest role: "Ako dito si Rosario, isang aswang hunter. Ako ang pag-ibig ni Juan. Iba naman ito kasi kung aswang ako sa Corazon, ngayon naman ako naman ang hu-hunting sa aswang. May mga action scenes so definitely mag-start ako mag training soon.”

"Juan dela Cruz" is slated for a release in the first quarter of 2013.
