Ending weeks of speculation, rising tandem Elmo Magalona and Janella Salvador finally confirmed rumors that they won’t be working with Joshua Garcia on a teleserye anymore.
Elmo and Janella were some of the stars who were introduced as part of the upcoming soap titled Kung Kailangan Mo Ako along with Joshua, McCoy de Leon, Elisse Joson, Alexa Ilacad, and Nash Aguas.
However, just weeks ago, reports had it that ElNella, as the two are tagged, were no longer part of the soap and that the show also supposedly had a new title.
“Since nung last draft nung show, maraming nabago. Ang nangyari nagbago ng cast. Sabi kasi hindi na kami magiging part nun,” Elmo said in an interview during the blogger’s conference of their upcoming film Bloody Crayons.
Janella, for her part, explained, “Or yung roles namin supposedly ibang iba na from when it started. I don’t think it would benefit the show or even kami kung itutuloy pa namin.”
Even if the two are no longer part of the soap, they remained grateful that they were the last ones to be chosen to be part of Bloody Crayons.
“Ako I believe meron talagang plan sa atin kung saan tayo mapupunta. So, kung feeling natin merong bagay na hindi natuloy it just means that there’s something else waiting for us. You shouldn’t feel bad,” she said.
The Topel Lee suspense-thriller also stars Jane Oineza, Maris Racal, Yves Flores, Sofia Andres, Diego Loyzaga, Empoy Marquez, and Ronnie Alonte. The film, which was first announced in 2015, took more than two years to finally materialize following the many changes in its cast members, script, and director.
“May sinabi pa before na kapag nawala sa ‘yo ang opportunity, it’s a good opportunity for someone else,” Janella added.
Elmo, meanwhile, believes that everything really is about “good timing.”
“We don’t really know kung ginawa ba namin magiging maganda ba siya for us. So yung susunod definitely yun ang mapupunta samin,” he said.
Although they did wonder why they were no longer pushing through with the teleserye, both Elmo and Janella are very much grateful that they were given their first films under Star Cinema. On top of that, the two are also working on their fantasy-romance film My Fairytail Love Story.
Catch Elmo and Janella and the rest of the Bloody Crayons in cinemas starting July 12.
