On September 9, Kapuso artist Kelvin Miranda recalled being turned down by his high school teacher during the media conference for ‘Loving Miss Bridgette.’
Miranda admitted that he was impulsive in high school, which led to him confessing to his high school teacher.
“Parang impulsive po. Parang may pagkaganon ako na klase ng tao noong highschool sobrang impulsive ko talaga. So, hindi ko mapigilan ‘yung mga nararamdaman ko. Sinasabi ko talaga siya.
“Pero kasi noong highschool, nasabi ko sa teacher ko ‘yun na as in may gusto ko sa kanya.
“Sabi niya hindi pwede, hindi talaga magwo-work.”
He then revealed that he has experienced being in a relationship with older women twice.
“Na-experience ko naman po siguro twice. Pero hindi po natutuloy kasi gawa ng mahirap talagang i-reach ‘yung expectations ng dalawang pinanggalingan. Which is kahit ayaw natin mangyari na, gusto lang natin intindihin ‘yung pagmamahalan,
“Pero marami pa rin kayong dapat intindihin sa magkabilang panig. Mahirap mag-work. Siguro ‘yung mga ganong klaseng pagmamahalan na malaking diperensya ‘yung edad is sobrang understanding nila sa isa’t isa. And sobrang laki ng pinanghahawakan nila sa isa’t isa and tiwala and all. Na-try ko siya pero hindi nag-work.”
Miranda became known for his role in the Kapuso Network’s The Lost Recipe. But now, he portrays a younger man in a May-December love affair in Loving Miss Bridgette.
His co-star Beauty Gonzalez recalled filming their intimate scenes in the series. She even praised Miranda’s acting skills, noting that he was a ‘[very] good student.’
“As for Kelvin, for his first experience, he’s a [very] good student. As Miss Bridgette. Yeah A+
“Syempre pinaguusapan talaga ‘yan. I mean with love scene that I’ve done in my past. Pinaguusapan po talaga with my co-actor. Hindi dapat minamadali, dapat ninanamnam mo every scene, every kiss, every touch, every nuances, every look. Nanamnamin mo ‘yan. As what I’ve said, Kelvin was a good student.”
