Marlo Mortel admits he misses Janella Salvador: ‘Siyempre may panghihinayang’
031116-MarloJanella_PUSH.jpgAfter winning New Movie Actor of the year at the PMPC Star Awards for Movies last March 6 for his role in the 2015 Metro Manila Film Fest film Haunted Mansion, Marlo Mortel admitted he was nervous and excited to attend the event for the first time. "Medyo kinabahan ako kasi first movie ko tapos na-nominate ako this time around so siyempre mga seven kami na naglaban. Lahat naman kami alam ko na nag-effort talaga sa mga kanya kanyang pelikula,” he shared.

The 23-year-old actor admitted that he is currently enjoying his hosting gig on Umagang Kay Ganda. "Everyday field reporter and host ako sa Umagang Kay Ganda. Naging ganun na ako and sometimes sometimes nakaka-host din ako sa Kris TV. Siyempre masaya. Habang wala pang ginagawang project eh nakapag-venture ako sa ibang career. Unang-una hindi naman lahat nakakapag-shift from being an actor to being a host because it’s a different field and masayangmasaya ako kasi kahit papaano naging regular ako. For six months na ata ako sa Umagang Kay Ganda. Sobrang na-e-enjoy ko kasi mahilig ako sa adventure and talagang ini-enjoy ko yung kung saan saan ako nakakarating. Tulad ng ibang show kinuha na tin ako kung saan ako dinadala so I’m very happy,” he explained.

When Oh My G! ended last year, Marlo said he couldn’t help but feel down after finding out that his love team partner Janella Salvador would be paired with someone else in another project. "Oo naman siyempre (nakakalungkot). Actually tinanggap ko naman na pero siyempre may panghihinayang lang na na-out naman ako sa picture di ba? Kung tutuusin naman talaga naturally speaking talaga pero ganun talaga. Decision ng management so wala na naman ako dun. Eh inaalagaan din naman nila ako so I’m very thankful na nasa ABS-CBN pa rin ako,” he admitted.

Fans of their love team MarNella will be happy to know that they are reunited right now because of a musical contest. “Meron kaming ginagawa ngayon ni Janella dahil meron kaming entry sa Himig Handog PhilPop Love Songs. Ang kanta namin yung ‘Mananatili’ n kinompose ni Francis Luis Salazar yung nag-compose ng ‘Akin ka na lang.’ So magandang opportunity sa amin ito. Unang una dahil sa mga nag-aabang sa amin dahil first time mag-du-duet na kami and it’s a big event and mag-ko-compete kami so sana manalo kami. So ngayon nagkikita kami for the song. Nag-shu-shoot kami ng music video and last week nag-recording kami. Minsan kumakain kami sa labas kasama din yung mommy niya which is lagi namang kasama niya,” he said.

Marlo admitted he can’t help but feel happier seeing Janella now that they aren’t together on the set everyday. "Ganun pa din kami. Pag nagkikita kami sobrang saya pa rin namin. Kasi mas excited kami makita ang isa’t isa kasi na-mi-miss talaga namin yun eh,” he added.

His closeness to Janella is also evident on social media where they post photos of themselves sharing the same expressions or doing a funny “couple pose” which Marlo said they don’t practice to perfect. “Hindi naman. Kapag magkasama kami, wala lang, parang ang sarap na mag-picture picture, selfie selfie. Kasi sobrang close namin eh. So andun kami sa stage na parang sobrang kumportable kami sa isa’t isa so post lang kami kapag gusto namin,” he shared.

With fans reacting online still showing full support for MarNella, Marlo has a hopeful message for all. "Siyempre nagpapasalamat ako dahil walang sawa yung suporta nila pero hindi naman kasi dito nagtatapos. Tulad nito, hindi namin i-ne-expect na meron kaming song together and siyempre ikinatuwa na naman nila and paminsan minsan nagkikita pa rin kami. Nag-one week episode kami sa Kris TV so hindi pa rin nawawala yung MarNella,” he said.
