Fans and avid viewers of the Kapamilya series FPJ's Ang Probinsyano are delighted with the powerful chemistry between its lead characters Cardo and Alyana Dalisay. They look too perfect together when sharing any kind of scene in the small screen; be it a fight scene against their villainous enemies, an emotional conversation, and most especially romantic and kilig moments.
Their undeniable chemistry and believability as a husband and wife have given birth to the speculations that Yassi Pressman and Coco Martin, the actors behind these fictional roles, share a special relationship behind the cameras as well. In fact, Yassi's name is often dragged when the public talks about Coco and his rumored long-time girlfriend, Julia Montes.
Just late last year, Julia began her vacation abroad and is still yet to come home. Eagle-eyed showbiz enthusiasts and spectators point at Yassi and Coco's behind-the-scene closeness as the reason for Julia's desire to leave the country for a while.
In her guesting in Tonight with Boy Abunda, Yassi clears her name from the malicious reports and says she does not have anything to do with neither Julia and Coco's reported conflict nor their relationship in general. Yassi, or Yass to her friends and family, admits feeling a bit bothered about getting involved in the CocoJul team-up before; saying she is clueless of why the issues just come out of nowhere. But now, Yassi has learned to laugh things off.

Yassi and Coco have been working together as an on-screen pair for three years already and they have developed a deeper sense of friendship and closeness in that span of time. In fact, Coco has already had too much influence on Yassi including the latter's love for snakes. According to Yassi, it started out when Coco received a snake as a birthday gift from their co-star, Michael de Mesa. Believing that the rolled-up live animal is just a toy, Yassi decides to play with it and instantly became fond of the creature.
