On November 23, Gold Squad members and Kapamilya artists Seth Fedelin and Andrea Brillantes said they are in love–with life.
During the unveiling event of ABS-CBN and iQiyi’s Filipino Originals, Brillantes and Fedelin responded to the event host, Robi Domingo, asking whether they were in love.
Fedelin confidently answered, “Ako, oo.”
Brillantes then responded, “Ako? Yes–with life.”
Brillantes then highlighted the six-page script in their newest series Saying Goodbye, noting that their new series tackled mature themes such as death and heart diseases.
“Mas nahirapan kami sa mga ibang eksena dito kasi there was one scene na six pages long siya.
“Mas mahirap po ‘yung roles namin dito kasi mas malalim siya. Ang Saying Goodbye, hindi lang siya tungkol sa love, it’s about friendship and we’re tackling situations like death, heart diseases. Mas seryoso siya kasi ito nangyayari talaga sa totoong buhay.”
Fedelin agreed, saying it was a challenge to go through the six-page script.
“‘Yun nga yung sa role namin talagang mahirap. At yun nga, pinaka nahirapan ako ‘yung sa six pages na linya talaga.”
Brillantes lauded her co-star, highlighting that she’s proud of Fedelin’s achievement as an actor.
“Ang dami talagang linya dito ni Ali [Seth]. Pero nakakaproud kasi dati hirap na hirap siya sa Kadenang Ginto mag-memorize. Pero dito ganito ‘yung mga linya niya pero name-memorize niya.”
Fedelin then explained that their new series hopes to change the view of people about death, not as a deadline, but as a motivation.
“Dito ang maituturo namin sa kanila at ang pakay namin na makita nila sa series na ito eh, wag titignan ‘yung death bilang deadline, kung di bilang motivation na gawin ‘yung mga bagay na gusto natin magawa.”
Brillantes added to their takeaways, stating that their series hopes to remind people not to be afraid to admit feelings for another person.
“Ang matuturo ko sa kanila tungkol sa love, para sa akin is umamin ka na. Don’t waste your time, wag ka magpadala sa takot mo na kasi madaming technical, ayaw niya ito, bawal ganyan. Sabihin niyo na ‘yung totoong nararamdaman niyo kasi minsan mas maganda nang sabihin mo na before it’s too late.”
As for the series ‘Saying Goodbye’ debuts on iQiyi on December 4, 8 PM, with a new episode weekly. The series also stars PBB: Connect alums Kobie Brown and Andi Abaya.
