Digital dramedy flick “My Amanda” is amazingly making waves online since it premiered last July 15.
Aside from its truly refreshing yet relatable story about two unusually bonded best friends who choose to stick by each other’s side despite everything that happens in their individual lives, what makes it more enticing to watch is the unmistakable chemistry between its main actors Alessandra de Rossi and Piolo Pascual – who are actually good friends in real life.
We may not know how their blooming friendship began, but they had worked in the 2014 Spring Films movie “Relaks, It’s Just Pag-ibig,” wherein she was among the cast, while he was among the co-founders of the production company. She then went on to star in its 2017 well-loved film “Kita Kita” opposite comedian-actor Empoy Marquez, and took on the role of Janice, the loyal and diligent assistant of Piolo’s character Nathan in the 2018 primetime series Since I Found You.
They then started filming “My Amanda,” which used to have Fuffy and Fream as its working title – Alessandra’s first-ever screenwriting and directorial debut. Through the behind-the-scene photos that they share on Instagram, which we collated in this gallery, we’re able to witness how they’ve grown closer than ever.
Besides, they also never fail to greet one another on his or her birthday and other milestones of their lives. In her birthday recently, Piolo greeted his “pretty writer, producer, director, and leading lady” by posting a photo of them together and writing in the caption “You gotta flex sometimes when you know you’ve worked with a legend… @msderossi happy birthday fream:) you’ll always be a force and the glue that keeps us stuck… #anoraw labyu! Grateful for you:) cheers! (sic)”
Just like their characters TJ and Amanda, Piolo and Alessandra only prove that a man and a woman can love one another without having to be romantically linked and simply have platonic relationship.
