In the new Star Cinema digital movie My Lockdown Romance, theater actress Gab Pangilinan plays the role of Jameson Blake’s close friend in the BL film.
“I was super happy na I was going to be working with Jameson because we knew each other for quite some time na and I guess it was easy na since we knew each other we didn’t have to break the ice or anything. We knew each other and we know what the story is about and I guess we did talk about certain things but at the same time, what really helped us a lot was how direk Bobby (Bonifacio) was always there supporting us and also guiding us through each scene,” she shared during the My Lockdown Romance mediacon.
After playing the role of female lead Joy onstage in the hugely successful musical run of Ang Huling El Bimbo, Gab goes back to doing film work in My Lockdown Romance.
“Ultimate supporter kay Jameson ako in the film. I’m actually excited for people to see the film and see the kind of friend the role I play in the film. It was really a pleasure for me to be working with Jameson kasi and when it comes to love I believe in personally, to share love, spread the love, and react to the love that is given to you. I am human so when I love, I love completely. The moment na nag-commit ako, yun na yun,” she said.
With her versatility in acting and singing on stage and in TV and movies, it’s no surprise she comes from the celebrity Pangilinan clan as the niece of Angeli Pangilinan, wife of Gary Valenciano. She has also been in a low-key relationship for several years now.
“My dad is a Pangilinan sibling, one of the nine. But my parents are walang nag-showbiz sa kanila. Luckily my partner, he lives close to me so really the only people I’ve been seeing is my family and my longtime boyfriend. Let’s say official years four years pero longer than that pa,” she said.
