Camille Prats and Angelica Panganiban took a trip down memory lane and recalled their fond memories working together as child stars in the 90s classic films Sarah... Ang Munting Prinsesa and Ang Pulubi at ang Prinsesa.

In a video Camille uploaded  on her YouTube channel, Angelica shared how she bagged the role of Becky in the Sarah… Ang Munting Prinsesa film. 

"Hindi naman talaga ako si Becky. Naalala ko bumaba sa stairs noon 'yung script con or assistant director tapos nagtanong siya kung sino ang may alam ng mga lines ni Becky. So nandon sa akin 'yung script inarte-arte ko 'yun nung bata ako so nung tinanong nila nagtaas naman ako ng kamay," she said. 


Angelica revealed that she was asked to act out a scene on the set, eventually getting the role of Becky. 

"Inakyat na nila ako ng attic kung nasaan ka, tapos 'yung scene noon may sakit ka kunyari na parang 'Inaapoy po ng lagnat si Sarah, Miss Minchin. Huwag niyo po siya pagtrabahuhin.' Ganun 'yung eksena tapos biglang ako na si Becky, so iyon 'yung pinaka-memorable sa akin,” she said. 

Meanwhile, Camille shared that the most memorable part for her was filming the project in Baguio. 

"Para sa akin, feeling ko 'yung pinakamasayang part ng Sarah days natin is that siyempre naka-lock in tayo sa Baguio. Tapos siyempre ang sarap ng weather di ba?" she said. 

The two stars admitted though that they like Ang Pulubi at ang Prinsesa more than the Sarah… Ang Munting Prinsesa film. 

"Mas paborito ko yung Pulubi at Prinsesa kaysa sa Princess Sarah. Parang mas makulay 'yung Pulubi at Prinsesa in terms of storytelling and acting," Camille said. 

Angelica went on to agree, saying: "Parang na-challenge na tayo doon. Parang pinagtrabaho na talaga tayo sa Pulubi at Prinsesa. Kasi sa Princess Sarah parang medyo naglaro lang tayo. Sa Pulubi at Prinsesa, mas may work na siya."

The two stars also shared how they were able to handle being pitted against each other back when they were still considered child stars. 

"Natatandaan ko na ang hilig ng mga tao na ikompara tayo sa isa't isa, di ba? I vividly remember na nag-uusap kami nung bagets kami na, 'Huwag tayo magpapadala sa mga sinasabi nila.' Medyo mature kaming dalawa na alam namin kapag pinag-aaway kami,” Camille said. 

Angelica added that despite the perception of the public that they were rivals back then, they have been really good friends on and off the camera ever since. 

"Siguro kung teenagers tayo pinag-ganun, medyo [baka naka-affect]. Talagang magkaibigan tayo eh, hindi naman tayo nagplastikan," Angelica stated. 

The two actresses also talked about their struggles when they became teenagers in the entertainment industry. 

"Ito struggle namin ito ni sis growing up, laging binabantayan’ yung katawan namin. Feeling ko na iyon ‘yung mga things in our past na ngayon, kapag binabalikan ko, parang grabe din. Iba din talaga pala ‘yung mga bagay na nire-require ng industriya,” Camille confessed.

Angelica recalled: “Sis, hindi nila ako pinag-taping. May isang taping, hindi nila ako [pinatawag]. Parang ‘Magpahinga muna siya ngayon’ para daw matauhan ako sa katawan ko.” 

Camille also stressed that they were too young at that time to be conscious about their weight. 

“And take note we were about 15, 14 noong mga panahon na 'to and siyempre 'yung mga edad na ‘yun hindi mo pa naiintindihan na parang ang sarap kumain non eh. Iyon ‘yung edad, siyempre we were also working,” she said.

Angelica admitted that the judgment she experienced in the past still affects her at present saying, “Medyo masakit ‘yun growing up. Alam mo may trauma siya hanggang ngayon. Kapag may check-up ako dahil buntis ako, sasabihin ‘Oh nag-ge-gain ka ng weight. Hindi okay.’ Nasasaktan ako, sis. ‘Yung atake sa akin, parang may mali talaga akong nagagawa kapag sinasabi sa akin na malaki ako ngayon.”

She added: “I take it personally kapag sinasabi siya sa akin kasi ganun ako lumaki. Tumatak siya sa akin, naging stigma na parang may mali kapag hindi mo napi-please 'yung mga tao which is mali. [Or kapag 'yung itsura mo], hindi pasado sa kanila. Masakit 'yun ah.” 

The two stars are glad that the industry and society have already become more accepting of different body types.

“Buti nga wala nang ganun ngayon, love your own. Dapat dati pa. May mali ba kapag mataba ang isang tao?” Panganiban highlighted. 

“Love yourself, zero is not a size,” Camille pointed out.
