Elmo Magalona asked Janella Salvador to be his date for the Star Magic Ball on the set of their new movie My Fairy Tail Love Story. The actor relayed he planned his surprise invitation for the actress for some time.
“I planned it for weeks. Maybe one or two weeks ahead. I found out na we were doing this debut scene of Janella’s character in the movie and I want it to be during that day. Yesterday was the perfect time to ask her and akala niya we were doing a scene pero in the middle of our scene pumasok ang string-quartet band and I sang to her and sa last part ng song for her, meron akong card asking her to be my date for the Star Magic Ball,” Elmo said in an interview with PUSH.
Janella shared that it initially did not sink in that what was happening was part of Elmo’s plan to ask her out for the ball.
“At first sobrang tagal bago ko na-gets what was happening kasi sabi nila we were just going to rehearse a scene so I was expecting nong may pumasok na music oh may ganon pala sa scene and he started singing sa mic like ako ang galing sinabayan pa niya. Hindi ko pa rin nage-gets, sobrang tagal na hindi ko pa rin na-gets and then na-gets ko na lang nong nilabas niya ‘yung card and sobrang gulat ako,” Janella stated.
Both stars already had their outfit fittings for the ball which will be held on September 30, 2017.
“Actually I just came from a fitting. I’m going to be wearing a gown by Mark Bumgarner,” Janella shared.
“I had a fitting din for a Francis Libiran suit because he’s going to make my suit this year for the Star Magic Ball. I can’t wait to see my outfit also and kapag nakatabi ko na si Janella with her outfit also,” Elmo stated.
