The behind-the-scenes video from Barbie and Paulo's Maalaala Mo Kaya episode last Saturday is funny as it is nakakakilig!
Tears flowed when Barbie Imperial and Paulo Angeles’ first project together as a love team was televised last Saturday.
After all, their special episode for the drama anthology Maalaala Mo Kaya entitled “200 I Love Yous” centered on a tragic love story between two college sweethearts, Hennesy and Allanis. Fresh from making their relationship official, theirs was shaken by an ordeal when the latter’s illness, a chronic kidney failure, got complicated and eventually resulted to her demise.
But through it all was Hennesy’s steadfast love for Allanis. Even Barbie herself, who played as the latter in the show, was moved. “Grabe. Nung nalaman ko yung story ng episode na to, yes agad sagot ko. Ang saya saya na madami kaming napasaya, napakilig at nainspire. Allanis, wherever you are.. sana masaya ka. Thank you for inspiring me. And to Henessy, I’m so proud of you. Ibang klase ka magmahal,” shares the young actress on Instagram.
Although, it wasn’t all forlorn behind the scenes, apparently. A day after their episode aired, Barbie took to Instagram a blooper from her first-ever kissing scene with Paolo. In it, the two couldn’t hold back their laughter as they were about to kiss on-screen.
“Eh yung sobrang magtropa kayo, tapos may kissing scene…,” writes the 20-year-old star for context.
Prior to their MMK stint, Barbie and Paulo – whose fans have since dubbed their love team ‘PauBie’ – have worked together in family drama series “Langit Lupa” back in 2016 as Jenny and Ivan, respectively. In a separate post dated January 5, the actress revealed that the episode has been a dream project of theirs.
