They first soared to meteoric popularity as two of the admirable teen housemates of Pinoy Big Brother Lucky Season 7. Now, they are among the sought-after loveteam of their generation, winning a lot of hearts with their captivating charm and unmissable chemistry.
Since they stepped out of the famous yellow house, with Maymay Entrata being proclaimed as the Big Winner and Edward Barber as the 4th Big Placer, they were welcomed by a slew of projects as individual celebrities and as a tandem endearingly dubbed by their shippers as MayWard.
From television guestings, they were given the opportunity to join their idols Teen Royalties Kathryn Bernardo and Daniel Padilla in the primetime series La Luna Sangre.
Because of their impressive performance and superiority in the local entertainment scene, they were tapped to headline their film debut “Loving in Tandem”, which also starred batchmates Kisses Delavin and Marco Gallo. It was succeeded by their supporting role stint in the Kim Chiu and Ryan Bang starrer “Da One That Ghost Away”.
These led to their victories in several award-giving bodies, such as in the MOR Pinoy Music Awards 2017 as the Best Collaboration for the song "Baliw" which they recorded and performed while inside the house, and in the PUSH Awards as the PUSH Group/Tandem and their loyal fans snagging the Ultimate Fan Awards.
MayWard also had the chance to perform for and give joy to the Overseas Filipino Workers through their out-of-the-country concerts held in Singapore, Taiwan, and Hong Kong, and be part of the Star Magic grand celebration in Singapore alongside KathNiel, Piolo Pascual, Maja Salvador, and other Kapamilya artists.
However, there's more to them than being colleagues and a loveteam -- they are best friends in real-life. In their interview with Metro.Style, they disclosed how they express their support, love, and appreciation for one another which they show by making sure that they also grow individually by being each other's number one supporter, cheerleader, and good influencer in everything they do.
Besides, they are also partners in putting up the non-government organization ELM Tree foundation that aims to reach out to less-fortunate children who don't have access to education, shelter, and protection, alongside Edward's sister Laura.
Although many speculate regarding the real score between them, basing on their gestures on-screen and how they react and respond to their interviews, there's one thing that we're very sure of: That they're going to be the next big thing and we all can't wait to see then anew in their upcoming endeavours together.
Catch MayWard together with other Kapamilya love teams Joshlia, Loinie, and Marnigo at the much-awaited “Just Love Araw-Araw Fan Meet” happening on May 19 and 20 (Saturday and Sunday) at the ABS-CBN Vertis Tent.
