After being cast as the lead actress in the latest WeTV Original series Pasabuy, Heaven Peralejo said she can relate to her latest role when it comes to believing in love.

“Yung similarity ko siguro kay Anna kasi nga hopeless romantic in a sense na ako kasi hopeless romantic ako as a person. Minsan I feel na ganun si Anna kasi sa manager pa niya siya nagkagusto. Alam niya naman in the back of her mind na hindi naman siya siguro gusto pero hopeless romantic so why not? And then mami-meet niya si John and then dun niya makikilala yung sarili niya. Tapos biglang may part din dun na tuturuan ni Anna yung mga tao sa self-love. And I guess ako naturuan ako ni Anna dun,” she said during WeTV’s Pasabuy mediacon held last September 22.

In Pasabuy, Heaven and co-star Gino Roque play two strangers who head out to a beach resort to escape their real lives and do a bit of soul searching. Heaven plays a young executive deciding on her next move while Gino is John, an aspiring musician working on creating new songs. When the lockdown happens, they find themselves stranded and they end up meeting virtually through a community chatroom for “pasabuy” customers.

“Madaling katrabaho si Gino eh. Maganda kasi sa aming dalawa na nag-e-exchange kami ng energy kung yung isa pagod, tapos yung isa hindi, dun ka kukuha ng energy para maganda yung proyekto para talagang matuwa naman yung mga viewers. Si Gino din kasi nag-aalaga. In a sense na binigyan niya ako ng magandang room kahit hindi ko naman hinihingi. Maalaga siya sa mga co-stars niya. Gentleman din si Gino,” she shared.

When they finally met in person at the series lock-in taping, Heaven said Gino tried to find common ground through their experience in different seasons of Pinoy Big Brother.

“First meet namin, so nag-knock siya sa door, lumabas ako ng door. Sabi niya, ‘Do you watch PBB?’ Tapos parang ako, what? Eh hindi naman kasi ako nanunuod talaga. I mean, naririnig ko lang si Gino sa Facebook, minsan pa-scroll scroll. Pero hindi ako nanunuod. So meron kaming laging debate ni Gino,” she said.

Even though they did not find PBB as a common ground for conversation, Heaven said their onscreen pairing still worked because they enjoyed working with each other.

“Dapat kasi natural yung chemistry, di yun pinag-aaralan. So feeling ko parang si boss Gino dahil siya yung producer dapat parang maging perfect di ba? Tapos hindi pa kami nag-mi-meet talaga. Siguro sumakto lang din yung personalities naming dalawa sa isa’t isa so nakita rin yun sa screen,” she adds.
