Here's good news for all MayWard fans: Maymay Entrata and Edward Barber are reuniting for a project.
The onscreen pair will work on a new movie, Edward announced during his guest appearance on the morning talk show Magandang Buhay this Friday, October 2.
During his interview, Edward shared how excited he is to work with Maymay again, two years after they last worked together on the 2018 Metro Manila Film Festival (MMFF) entry Fantastica.
"Ang nilu-look forward ko ay maging masaya ulit sa trabaho. Kasi may mga time talaga na habang nagtatrabaho ka hindi ka naman nag-e-enjoy, hindi naman masaya, pinipilit mong ngumiti or tumawa," he said, as quoted by ABS-CBN News.
"Pero ito, binasa ko na 'yung script, pinost ko sa IG Stories ko 'yung draft six. Masaya talaga 'yung movie. Tapos hindi 'yung sobrang bigat. So I'm looking forward to just having fun which is isa sa mga bagay na parang hindi ko ginawa nung mga last projects," he added.
Maymay and Edward have been onscreen partners since being part of ABS-CBN's reality show Pinoy Big Brother.
Last April, the two denied being a couple in a joint statement they posted on social media.
"Masaya at masarap po sa pakiramdam ang idea ng isang romantic relationship, but as we go along our journey, we realize na hindi basta-basta lang to get into a relationship,” they said.
On Magandang Buhay, Edward went on to thank their fans for their love and continued support.
"Ang daming nagsabi sa start ng quarantine, na 'yung quarantine ay parang ;PBB.' Nakakulong kayo tapos nandoon lahat ng emotions. At masasabi ko na kahit ganoon, kahit matindi ang pinagdadaanan nating lahat ay nandoon pa rin sila. Hindi ako makapaniwala na, the level that they were giving us before of support is not just the same, it's even higher. Hindi ko ma-explain. Parang baliw talaga kayo because until now you are still giving us that support," he said.
He went on: "A lot has been said sa social media, a lot of stuff has been lied about, false statements and through it all, I look sa may Instagram, sa direct messages, minsan toxic 'yon, pero I read them and I read some messages, they say, 'We still trust you Edward. We still support you, We still love you.' At hindi ko masabi, hindi nila alam, hindi ko masabi sa kahit anong interview, hindi ko maipakita sa isang movie. They will never know the impact that that positivity has in my life. Now in the future or in the past, they will never know. But all I can say now is maraming-maraming salamat. Sobrang nagpapasalamat ako sa inyo."
