As McLisse fans enjoy his latest movie Habangbuhay with Elisse Joson, McCoy De Leon said he and his real-life girlfriend were grateful to still get the chance to be paired together onscreen even after he transferred talent management agencies in 2020 to become part of Viva Artists Agency. Last year, the couple revealed they were also parents to a baby girl named Felize.

“Before the baby pa, matagal na sinulat daw ni sir Jon Verzosa, yung writer ng Habangbuhay, na ilaan sa amin. Kumbaga meron na daw talagang nakasulat na project for us daw. Kaya nung nabasa na namin yung script, ito recently lang yun may baby na kami. Masaya ako na may project kami pero nagpa-revise lang kami ng konti para mag-match sa time at magawa din namin ng ibang ways naman, ibang atake. Ngayon happy kami kasi meron pa rin silang ipinagkakatiwalang project sa amin yung Viva siyempre at kami ni Elisse nagkaroon kami ng project together kahit magkaiba kami ng management. Thankful kami sa lahat ng nagtiwala, sa Viva, and siyempre sa bumubuo talaga ng Habangbuhay kasi inalagaan daw nila itong storya na ‘to and then now linabas na kaya excited kami na mapanuod niyo,” he shared.

Even though they are now being handled by different management agencies, McCoy said he would still need to consult with Elisse when it comes to decisions like taking on sexy projects, which Vivamax is now being known for.

“Sabi ko ang proyekto, masarap gumawa talaga ng pelikula, isang obra, kaya mas tinutututkan ko pag nakakatanggap ako ng proyekto and sa ngayon, hindi ko alam saang chismis galing yun, pero sa ngayon thankful ako sa Viva dahil naintindihan nila ako. Alam nila yung gusto ko, alam nila saan ako ililinya. Kaya nasa kanila naman yun at siyempre may mga konting bagay na nasa sa kanya,” he said.

Compared to their previous film Sakaling Maging Tayo which was released in 2019, McCoy revealed why Habangbuhay was a bigger acting challenge for him and Elisse.

“Sa trailer mukha siyang sobrang drama pero pag pinanuod niya ay naku sobrang parang ride of emotions. First time ko ngang mag-plaster eh. Ang role ko dito si JR mas hardworking tapos sobrang matapang siya kasi may backstory siya eh kaya siya nandun. Kaya siya matapang at hindi sumusuko sa buhay,” he explained.

As for being paired with other actresses in future projects, McCoy said there is no problem as long as he believes in the project being offered.

“Ang project naman kung ibibigay palagi dapat may bago. Kumbaga parang, ibig sabihin gusto ko yung story na maganda talaga. Ang hirap kasi gawin yung pelikula na hindi kami in love sa story. Kaya ang priority namin yung content. Tapos saka na namin pag-uusapan kung sino yung mga kasama,” he added.
