After two years of working together on the teen romance series He’s Into Her, Belle Mariano said she and love team partner Donny Pangilinan have shared a lot of memorable scenes together. The 19-year-old Star Magic artist revealed which scene was her favorite in the series.
“It was our first scene together. First encounter ni Max and ni Deib. Kasi dun ko naramdaman yung kailangan parang medyo palaban ka sa kanya but at the same time merong spark. So parang ang daming nangyayaring emotions sa scene na yun. So yun yung memorable scene sa akin,” she said during the He’s Into Her finale blogcon.
Belle also shared what made their onscreen partnership successful. “Para kaming nag-wo-work pero we don’t feel as if we’re working kasi sobrang nag-e-enjoy kami. And sobrang feeling ko nag-ja-jive lang talaga yung ugali namin and parang same wavelength so nagkakaintindihan kami. Feeling ko nag-click yung pairing namin because yung personalities namin it jives. Same kami ng wavelength,” she said.
When it came to creating the ‘kilig’ that DonBelle fans always watch for in the series, the He’s Into Her star said they got some help from their director Chad Vidanes. “With the music of direk, it really helps. And yes of course kinikilig ako kasi in order na maparating namin yung kilig sa mga viewers at manunuod namin kailangan din namin kiligin. Pero hindi naman ganun kabilis bumaklas sa emotions so siyempre nandun pa rin yung kilig after the scene. But it’s easier now compared before,” she explained.
Now that the show is over, Belle said she is already scheduled to work again with Donny on future projects. The two have been vocal about enjoying being friends for now.
“We’re just really focused sa work and we’re really happy with the company of each other. What I like most is yung pagiging supportive niya and yung optimisim niya sa set na napapasa niya sa lahat. Yung pagiging happy niya na napapasa niya sa lahat. Nabibigay niya yung energy niya sa lahat. Nahahawa niya lahat sa energy niya and that’s what I like most about him,” she said.
During the finale blogcon, Belle admitted that her onscreen partner is boyfriend material. “Well I guess you can ask all the girls here and for sure they’ll say yes naman of course,” she added.
