Elisse Joson still couldn’t wrap her head around the idea that her recent Maalaala Mo Kaya episode with her love team partner McCoy de Leon was warmly received by viewers.
“Very happy po dahil pareho naming pinagdasal at binigay ang makakaya namin para sa episode na ‘to since eto nga po ang unang MMK namin na magkasama,” she said in an exclusive interview with PUSH at the surprise birthday party organized by her supporters for her dog McMc.
Although she shared that they both hoped for the best, Elisse claimed that she never expected for their prayers to be answered. But this recent feat has fueled them to improve themselves further.
“Yes po alam naman namin na we still have so much to improve at may pagkukulang pa din po kami kaya ang mas pinagusapan namin is kung paano namin iiimprove pa sa mga susunod na project,” she said.
But since it was their first time to headline a project, Elisse and McCoy both played a huge part in order for the other person to be able to deliver what was expected of them.
“Kung meron kaming kailangan sa isa't isa sa eksena, vocal naman po kami, nagsasabi kami,” she explained.
“Si McCoy naman po naging very supportive sya sa akin sa MMK. Kahit na hindi siya kailangan sa eksena pupunta siya talaga sa set para i-support ako. Sobra siyang nakatulong sa akin,” she added.
In the said episode, Elisse breathed life to Rose, who assumed a different persona in order to get close to her love interest Josh, played by McCoy.
“Etong MMK episode na to hindi naman po sya yung sobrang bigat na heavy drama pero parang mas mahirap po na may comedy side pa at light drama combined. Naging challenging pa po lalo dahil sa fat suit at prosthetics,” Elisse recalled.
After the said project, Elisse hopes that their supporters can watch out for their upcoming soap.
“Actually kung ano po dumating siyempre go lang po kami ng go. Leaving it all up to Him,” she said as to whether or not they are making a movie.
How about their single? Are they working on an album?
“Still busy po for the single kasi meron pong napaguusapan na radio tours and yung music video na nasa process po pero sana, sana magkaroon po,” she said.
Elisse and McCoy recently released their own version of “If We Fall In Love.”
