Donny Pangilinan and Belle Mariano are reprising their roles as onscreen couple Deib and Max in a story based on the popular Wattpad series He’s Into Her. For their second season, Donny said it will show a more complex love story between the two.
“Kita niyo naman sa trailer na mas mature Deib and Max ang makikita natin dito. In a relationship sila. They’re going through the struggles and the good sides as well that every couple goes through in relationships. But hindi lang yun yung aspect of Deib na makikita nila. The trailer also touched on the fact na puwede ako maging expelled because of all the past stuff that I’ve done with all the bullying. So you’re also going to see that side of Deib. How he will handle that. And how he will go through that together with all the problems he will face just in general,” he shared during the He’s Into Her General Assembly event held last March 26.
After playing the headstrong and hardworking girl named Max who left her provincial life to become a student at the prestigious Benison International School, Belle said that she got to show more complicated emotions in this new season.
“For me it was harder this time. In a way it was easier since I knew my character na but dito mas makikita mo yung depth ng character namin, mas makikita mo yung pinanggalingan nila and what more yung mga panggagalingan nila. So yung complexity mas makikita dito and in those scenes talagang nahirapan ako,” she admitted.

Aside from welcoming new additions to their cast, Donny said that he and Belle went through a big acting challenge throughout this season.
“Mas complex this time. Hindi siya yung season 1 na I started out as a bully, I can do anything I want and no one’s going to do anything. Tapos ngayon you see the complete shift story-wise and character-wise in how I would have to go through life. With my problems with my brother, with my relationship, and my school. So carrying all of that all of a sudden it’s not a joke and I really had to put myself in Deib’s shoes. And may scenes dito na sobra ako emotionally na-drain siguro after kasi hindi ko na alam kung ano gagawin ko after kasi sobra akong nalagay sa shoes niya na I really felt how it really felt to parang feel that certain way. Wala akong sino-spoil ha. Siguro mas elevated times ten yung season 2 for me in terms of emotions,” Donny explained.
