Star Cinema revealed the names of the characters of Donny Pangilinan and Belle Mariano in their upcoming movie An Inconvenient Love.
On Tuesday, September 27, the film outfit announced that Donny will be playing the role of Manny while Belle will be portraying the role of Ayef.
Star Cinema shared that Manny is a “22-year-old owner of HalaManny, a boutique plant shop near 24-Ever. He is a businessman by day and a secret social activist by night, fighting alongside the workers of Siena Corp, a company his father owns."
"Out of all Manny’s responsibilities, there’s nothing more important to him in this world than his brother, Dobs, who has autism spectrum disorder (ASD). Manny has taken it upon himself to be the 'glue' that holds his dysfunctional family together," the movie outfit added.
Meanwhile, Ayef is "a graduating student and aspiring international animator who works part-time at a convenience store named 24-Ever. One thing we have to remember about her: she takes her goals seriously."
According to Star Cinema, as a way to escape the sad realities of her life, "Ayef’s main priority is to land an internship in a prestigious animation company in Singapore. To achieve her dream, Ayef is determined to make no room for inconveniences, especially the biggest inconvenience of all: love."
The film synopsis states that Manny and Ayef believe that love is just another inconvenience, that both agree to a convenient relationship that will expire in the month that Ayef is set to leave for Singapore.
It was in July when it was first announced that Donny and Belle are set to headline a new movie with Star Cinema.
In an interview with Star Magic Inside News recently following her big win at Seoul International Drama Awards, Belle said that she hopes the movie will go international and will win awards.
"My next goal, we are in the middle of shooting a movie right now and obviously we would want that to go international, so siyempre award for that movie as well and sana mas maraming ma-recognize ng talent ng Filipinos," she stated in the interview.
