“Syempre lahat kami, siguro lahat ng nasa showbiz, lahat ng artista gusto maging leading man, leading lady, so finally parang, parang achieved na siya para sa akin. And, parang iba yung pakiramdam na, oh, leading lady na ako,” said Michelle.
While he admits to being pressured at first, Jon eventually had a blast doing the movie with Michelle who he said is a good actress.
“Nung nalaman ko nga po na si Michelle Vito ang makaka-partner ko, natuwa ako nang sobra kasi magkaibigan kami ni Michelle, tapos inexpect ko agad na magiging magaan sa set,” said Jon. “Tapos magaling pa si Michelle, nakakadala.”
The entire journey of creating the film has been nothing short of enjoyable for Michelle and Jon as they’ve grown closer to each other. They’ve also forged a friendship with their co-stars, including Akihiro Blanco who plays the third wheel in the movie.
