Former Pinoy Big Brother teen housemates Maymay Entrata, Edward Barber, Kisses Delavin and Marco Gallo will top bill the upcoming Star Cinema film titled “Loving in Tandem.”
The four talked to PUSH about their respective roles during the movie’s story conference on Tuesday, May 23.
“It’s a very funny rom-com about two brothers and two best friends. The movie is all about them stealing each other’s hearts,” Kisses said, agreeing that it is not going to involve a love triangle but a “love square.”
Saying that he does not want to reveal much, Edward said that his role might be a little challenging for him. As for Maymay, she said that her character is a, “Magnanakaw ng puso.” Agreeing that hers seems like a heartbreaker, Maymay added, “’Di makapani-paniwala pero masipag at madiskarte po ako dito.”
Meanwhile, Kisses, just like in real life, will be a beauty queen. “Ako naman po ang forever beauty queen ng Quiapo. Bali po, this role for me would be very natural kasi it’s very me. Growing up, talagang nag-bu-beauty queen ako, nagbu-beauty pageant and ‘nung nalaman ko ‘yung role ko na magiging beauty queen, it’s like it’s very natural and I’m so excited.” As for Marco, he briefly described his character as “masayahin.”
To prepare for their very first acting project, Kisses said that they are undergoing workshops and are being assisted by their director Giselle Andres.
Speaking of their director, she said that they thought of how they could bring out the best in the four teens, “Kung ano ‘yung minahal sa kanila ng mga tao so tinatry namin i-incorporate sa movie na ito para natural na, tapos mas magiging kamahal-mahal pa sila.” She said they have not started working on the movie yet but she already saw their potential during a workshop.
“Nagscreen test kami by pairs, by threes. Nagwowork siya actually so sobrang excited kami na mapakita sa inyo kung paano sila as actors.”
The movie is slated to be released this year.
