After a pictorial for the upcoming Metro Manila Film Festival (MMFF) entry Fantastica, Maymay Entrata shared she and love team partner Edward Barber are very excited to be joining for the first time. 

Sobrang excited na kami sa movie. First time namin sumali sa MMFF tapos kay Vice Ganda pa so bongga talaga. Happy happy. Nakasakay na kami float sa homecoming ng PBB (Pinoy Big Brother) pero hindi sa film festival. Kaya excited na excited ako kasi nakikita ko dati sa TV sina Vice Ganda, ang daming tao. Tapos sobrang saya nila,” she said.

The 21-year-old actress admitted she has always been a fan of the MMFF even before she auditioned for PBB in 2016. 

Kay FPJ (Fernando Poe Jr) pa lang nandun na kami (laughs). Dun sa Davao kasi laging may Kadayawan Festival so andun sila lahat. Sobrang saya at sobrang worth it kasi 5 AM andun na kami, naghihintay na kami sa sobrang daming tao dun. Sina FPJ, si Ms. Jolina (Magdangal) naka-tirintas pa buhok niya nun st si Ms. Carmina (Villaroel) nakita ko din,” she remarked. 

Just recently, fashion designer Rajo Laurel posted on social media expressing his interest in dressing her for one of his shows. Maymay admitted she would not hesitate at the opportunity to work with him. 

Ay oo nabasa ko yun. Kasi sikat na designer yun. Nakakapawis (laughs). Hindi ko alam paano i-e-explain pero parang hindi ako makapaniwala. Kahit hindi pa niya ako tanungin o-oo ako dun kasi si sir Rajo yun eh. Sino ba naman hihindi dun. Gagawan ng paraan yung schedule (laughs). Pero isang araw lang naman yun,” she said.

Before joining showbiz, Maymay revealed that modeling has always been one of her interests. She idolizes supermodels Tyra Banks and Carla Delevingne. The pretty actress also  talked about her experience joining competitions when she was still in Davao. 

Isa talaga sa gusto ko yung fashion show kasi gusto ko yung feeling na nandun ako sa ramp. Nung college kasi ako gipit ako (laughs) eh kahit talo ka may prize ka pa rin. Siguro nakapag-contest ako ng modeling tatlong beses. Kasi lahat ng mga kasama may mga own designer, may mga nag-te-train sa kanila. Ako YouTube, sa YouTube tapos ginagaya ko talaga yung mga professional dun. Dun lang ako sa kuwarto, nagla-lakad lakad ako dun. Hanggang sa masasanay ka na."

Siguro mas nakuha sa YouTube yung catwalk at lakas ng loob. Tapos hindi ko lang tiningnan yung training nila kundi yung mga interview nila kung paano nila ginagawa yun, kung ano yung nasa utak nila. At saka yung look at attitude,” she explained.
