Elmo Magalona and Janella Salvador, also known as ElNella, are set to make a TV comeback less than a year since their first soap ended.
ElNella, along with two other young love teams composed of McCoy de Leon and Elisse Joson (McLisse) and Nash Aguas and Alexa Ilacad (NLex), are top billing Dreamscape’s newest soap Kung Kailangan Mo Ako.
The three love teams, during the show’s announcement on Wednesday, are to be joined by promising young actor Joshua Garcia and seasoned stars Eula Valdez, Mylene Dizon, and John Estrada.
Doble Kara director Manny Palo and Direk Rahyan Carlos are teaming up to create the show.
“Ito super excited kasi hindi lang kami ni Janella ang magsasama dito,” started Elmo in an exclusive interview with Push.
Janella added that she is also excited since their new project is going to be different.
“Ang dami dami ding cast and first time ko rin makatrabaho si Joshua and ‘yung iba. So super excited kami,” she said.
What is the soap going to be about?
“Actually ito ang maganda kasi lahat ng characters, lahat ng cast may connect sila,” said Janella.
Elmo added, “Mapa sa magulang namin kung sino ang magkakapatid. Talagang mapapaisip ka.”
The tandem revealed that the soap is set to lean on the drama side which is the complete opposite of their musical-themed show Born For You last year.
With a new soap and two movies coming this 2017, the two are very happy and grateful that they have been given the chance to showcase their talents again.
“Siyempre may konting pressure kasi siyempre kailangang mas ano ngayon. Pero more than the pressure, excited kami to work with each other again and to work with something different from before,” said Janella.
Apart from Kung Kailalangan Mo Ako, Janella and Elmo are also starring in the Regal Films flick My Fairy Tail Love Story and the Star Cinema movie Bloody Crayons.
