Reality TV stars Maymay Entrata, Edward Barber, Kisses Delavin, and Marco Gallo have already left “Pinoy Big Brother (PBB)” house many months ago, but they are still inseparable, especially for their launching movie “Loving In Tandem.”

When they were still inside the house, fans paired them: Maymay and Edward as MayWard, and Kisses and Marco as KissMarc. So, the tandems continue now that they are in the outside world.

“There’s no other person in the world who knows me that well. She’s one of the most genuine people I’ve ever met,” Edward said of Maymay.

Maymay is known for her humor and wackiness, which Edward likes about her. The Filipino-British actor shared that Maymay always exudes positive energy even if they have a busy schedule.

“Her energy level compared to mine is a lot higher and I get tired quicker than she does. But she always keeps me positive. I’ve never heard her complain,” he said.

Edward added, “She (also) knows how to annoy me. Only my sister and Maymay really know how to get under my skin.”
Language is not a problem between them. Maymay even teased she sometimes uses body language when she cannot fully express herself in English.

Starring in their own movie with no acting experience is hard. However, Maymay shared Edward always reminds her to keep on going.

“Hindi po nawawala sa kanya ’yung pagiging caring at supportive niya. Nagustuhan ko din sa kanya kasi pareho kaming nahihirapan kasi baguhan kami, palagi naming nire-remind ’yung sarili namin na hindi porke’t baguhan kami ay hindi na naman ibibigay ’yung best namin. Palagi niya ako nire-remind. Kahit pagod na ako, sinasabayan niya ’yung kabaliwan namin,” Maymay said.

Open hearts

Unlike Edward and Maymay, Kisses and Marco seemed to have a different story when they were still inside Kuya’s house. Kisses admitted liking Marco, who was then close to another housemate Vivoree Esclito.

“I think I opened my heart to understand and forgive more. ’Yung nangyari sa PBB house, hindi niya alam na gusto ko siya so wala siyang kasalanan doon. Na-misinterpret lang nga mga tao,” Kisses said.

Marco admitted he and Kisses used to have disagreements before. But now their friendship has gone much better.

“Sa una, hindi kami masyado nagkakaintindihan and we were always disagreeing in everything. Pero sabi nga nila, kapag matagal magsama ang dalawang tao, kahit na ano i-accept mo din. So, na-accept ko na ’yung mga defects ni Kisses and I want to make it private na lang. For me, she doesn’t have any defect anymore,” Marco said.

Kisses then said, “I don’t need to change for anybody. I just need to find somebody who will appreciate me for who I am.”

She shared how sweet and caring Marco is. Marco said he is trying his best to always earn the trust of Kisses and her parents.

“Sobra akong nagpakumbaba. I give everything, lahat ng kakayanan ko ginawa ko para makuha ko ’yung trust ng parents ni Kisses. Kasi I want to show them especially to Kisses na for now, I can be a true friend na she can trust and maybe in the future as someone special for her,” he said.

Asked if Kisses is girlfriend-material, “Ang standard ko sa jowa material ay gusto ko po na never ka mabo-bore sa kanya kapag kasama mo siya. So lagi ko nadidiscover sa kanya ay lagi akong may natututunan kapag magkasama kami. So I never get bored kapag magkasama kami.”

Kisses, on the other hand, seemed to be reserved with her answer to the same question.

“Naniniwala po ako na they cannot just be defined by just one characteristic na jowa material kasi people can be different at some time. Masasabi ko lang na sa like sa movie ngayon na ‘Love You To The Stars And Back,’ minsan kailangan mo lang maniwala. Kaya if the time is right, I think I’m willing to take a chance,” she said.

Helping hands

“Loving In Tandem” is Star Cinema’s latest offering. The movie starring greenhorn actors is helmed by new movie director Giselle Andres.

“Ang ganda kasi sabay-sabay kaming natuto. Mahirap noong una, pero dahil nagbibigayan naman, mas madali at super saya. Story ng isang city girl na muntik nang inatake ng magnanakaw. In that moment, dumating si Prince Charming without armor, dala lang niya ’yung kagwapuhan niya. He saved her at na-crush at first sight si Shine. Within the community, they developed friendship na out of the normal,” Giselle said.

Acting in a movie for the first time, Maymay shared that one of her challenges is being natural onscreen.

“Si direk po talaga ’yung binibigay niya lahat para mabigay ko ’yung sincerity ng scene ko. Mahirap sa akin ’yung pagiging natural,” she said.

Edward is grateful to his co-actors for helping them. “Loving In Tandem” also stars Ryan Bang and Thou Reyes.

“I would have not been able to do any of the things I do without my co-actors and director. I remember everyone has helped me.”

Carmi Martin, who is the most experienced in the cast, praised the young stars for their efforts. She also noted how they all became close shooting the movie.

“Winarningan ako ni direk na mapapagod daw ako. Nakakatuwa lang na we became close at tinulungan namin sila.

Teachable and promising. Napansin ko lang, kasi madami din naman ako nagawa na movies ng Star Cinema, na-notice ko na ang dami ng nag-share ng trailer sa social media at countless . Very promising ’yung pelikula, push sa prayers and it will happen,” Carmi said.

Luck and love

Since winning on “Pinoy Big Brother,” Maymay can hardly believe the opportunities coming her way. She feels great knowing she is able to make other people happy.

“Siguro po naniniwala ako na walang imposible kaya go lang ako ng go. At sa tulong din ng mga inspirasyon ko sa buhay kaya nangyayari ito. Masaya lang po ako na may napapasaya ako na tao. Masaya po sa feeling na ’yung kasiyahan na iyon ay galing sa akin, masaya po na may sumusuporta. Kung may dumidepensa sa bashing, nagpapasalamat ako sa kanila. Mas lalong binibigay ko ’yung best ko para maibalik ’yung blessings na binigay nila sa akin,” she said.
