Push takes a look at five rivals that add spice to romantic tandems onscreen.
Although we dislike their characters, celebrities who play third wheels to our favorite love teams are actually supportive of them in real life. PUSH.com.ph
gives you a rundown of celebrities who are notable for the third wheel roles they currently play on national TV.
1. Pangako Sa ‘Yo: Diego Loyzaga as David
Playing the third wheel to the famous Daniel Padilla-Kathryn Bernardo love team in the Pangako Sa ‘Yo remake, this is not the first that Diego was in a love triangle. He was first a third wheel to the Liza Soberano-Enrique Gil tandem in the defunct primetime TV series, Forevermore.
In a PUSH report months ago, Diego revealed that although he felt nervous about playing a third wheel to KathNiel, he was excited to work with them.
2. Pangako Sa ‘Yo: Sarah Carlos as Bea Bianca
Another third wheel to the KathNiel love team in the Pangako Sa ‘Yo remake is showbiz newcomer Sarah Carlos who plays the iconic role of Bea Bianca.
Although she admitted having bashers because of her character, she said that she is actually friends with Kathryn and Daniel in real life when she was interviewed on the defunct late night talk show, Aquino and Abunda Tonight.
However, she recently revealed through an Instagram post that she will no longer play a third wheel in the second book of the top-rating drama series and that she will finish her degree in Accountancy.
3. On The Wings of Love: Albie Casiño as Jigs
Young actor Albie Casino currently plays a third wheel to the on-screen team up of James Reid and Nadine Lustre in the top-rating romance-comedy primetime show, On The Wings of Love.
Because of his character in OTWOL, Albie was dubbed as the “Pambansang Bully.” Nonetheless, he is thankful to Jadine fans for accepting him warmly. “Parang wala naman ata akong bashers. Joke lang. To be honest, yung mga fans na yung nag-de-defend sa akin eh. Kumbaga nagpapasalamat na din ako sa fans ng Jadine kasi ang warm ng welcome nila sa akin and hindi naman nila ako bina-bash. Ipinagtatanggol pa nila ako so sila na lang bahala sa akin,” he said in a PUSH report.
4. On The Wings of Love: Ysabel Ortega as Angela
Aside from Jigs, a new third wheel has entered the lives of sweethearts Clark (James) and Leah (Nadine) in On The Wings of Love. Her name is Angela Stevens played by showbiz newcomer Ysabel Ortega.
In a report by PUSH, Ysabel, who admitted being James’s fan ever since his Pinoy Big Brother days, said that there are also JaDine fans who would defend her from bashers. “Kasi po it’s just a show, wala naman pong personalan, ‘di ba po? Tapos yung iba po, sinasabi naman nila na si Angela lang dapat ‘yung i-hate nila at huwag si Ysabel. May iba rin po na dini-defend pa ako kapag may nagsasabi ng masama sa akin. Very nice po sila,” she said in the article.
5. All of Me: Arron Villaflor as Henry
In the afternoon drama series, All of Me, actor Arron Villaflor plays the role of Dr. Henry, a third wheel to the on-screen partnership of Lena (Yen Santos) and Manuel (Albert Martinez and JM De Guzman).
However, despite playing a supporting character, he is very vocal with the support he is giving for the show and its lead stars.
