In episode 102 of Take It …. Per Minute, Me Ganun!, The hosts Lolit Solis, Cristy Fermin, and Mr. Fu, discussed a blind item about the romance developed between a seasoned actor and a young star during lock-in taping.
Lock-in taping is the new normal for movie or series production. In this setup, the cast and crew will be confined in a bubble and none of them can go out unless the scenes are all taped.
Because of this setup, many stars were rumored to have an affair with their co-star while taping, and recently Take It …. Per Minute, Me Ganun! hosts discovered another one.
“Marami daw sa mga nagla-lock in taping na halimbawa, mga dating magkarelasyon ay nanunumbalik ang kanilang mga relasyon dahil sa lock-in taping.
“May mga iba daw na nahuhuling lumilipat ng kwarto ang isang actor o actress,” Mr. Fu teased.
Fermin then asked, “May edad na ba itong actor na ito?” and Solis added, “Biyudo ba ‘yan?”.
Mr. Fu hinted that the blind item is involving a seasoned actor and a new young star who is a daughter of a former young star too.
He then shared the story behind, based on the rumors inside the set: “Kapag pahinga ng rolyo ng camera, ay silang dalawa ang may eksena. In short, may nagaganap na tikiman portion kahit hindi naman cooking show.”
Mr. Fu went on giving more hints about the actor: “May edad na ‘to si actor, magaling na actor at saka may itsura.” He also added that the actor is rich since he received an inheritance recently.
Also, he said that people inside the set think that the young star resorted to having an affair with the actor because she wants her showbiz career to flourish.
Surprisingly, after Mr. Fu shared the story, Solis revealed that the blind item is referring to Albert Martinez.
“Alam mo, tatawagin ko nalang talaga si Albert Martinez, tatanong ko kung siya ‘yan. Albert ha, sagutin mo ko!” Solis said causing Mr. Fu and Fermin to burst out in laughter.
GMA Network announced in March that Albert will come back as a Kapuso soon via the new teleserye Las Hermanas. He will be joined by Yasmien Kurdi, Thea Tolentino, and Faith Da Silva.
Directed by Monti Puno Parungao, Las Hermanas is expected to air soon on GMA Afternoon Prime and GMA Pinoy TV (overseas).
