Some love teams indeed never fail to make us kilig every time they are seen together on-and-off-cam. But it was through their teleserye and movie stints that they’re able to further astound us with their rapport as partners and with their incredible talents as individual artists.
And in this episode of Kapamilya Spotlight, let’s take a look back on the best acting moments of our current favorite Kapamilya tandems in teleseryes that truly made us kilig and amazed with the talent that they could offer.
First off, the King and Queen of Hearts Daniel Padilla and Kathryn Bernardo who have been together for eight years now and have appeared in nine box-office hit movies and five primetime series, which includes the 2015 remake of the classic romance drama Pangako Sa ‘Yo and the 2017 action-romance series La Luna Sangre.
It was in Pangako Sa ‘Yo wherein KathNiel was able to initially display their maturity through their own take on the iconic roles of Angelo Buenavista and Ina Macaspac, while it was in La Luna Sangre wherein they were able to prove their versatility as they both did drama and action in portraying Malia Rodriguez and Tristan Toralba.
After noticing their on-screen chemistry as best friends-turned-lovers in a Star Cinema flick, Liza Soberano and Enrique Gil went on to topbill their first-ever teleserye as a loveteam via Forevermore in 2014.
Seeing how truly perfect they are together, without us knowing that they’re actually already couple then, they were bestowed several projects in the succeeding years, with Make It With You being the latest. This teleserye will be forever ingrained in the hearts and minds of fans as LizQuen indeed levelled up their team-up here by having kissing and intimate scenes.
After headlining a number of blockbuster hits and remarkable teleseryes, it was in the 2016 primetime romance drama The Story Of Us wherein Kim Chiu and Xian Lim were able to enthrall their fans with the maturity they exuded and hit them right in the feels, especially when their characters Tin and Macoy had to choose between love and family.
KimXi went on to fascinate us with how they’ve grown as actors through their notable portrayal of unrequited lovers Jia and David in the afternoon soap opera Love Thy Woman, which truly fluttered and shattered a lot of hearts.
Pinoy Big Brother alumni Maymay Entrata and Edward Barber’s ship has continued to ship, three years after it was formed during the Lucky Season 7 days – thanks to their throngs of loyal fans who have been relentlessly supporting their lovely tandem in the outside world.
After starring together in a Star Cinema film for the first time in 2017, MayWard had their teleserye debut in La Luna Sangre that same year, which provided them the opportunity to show their potential as thespians. They went on to headline and made us kilig with their depiction of young love in the weekly fantasy drama Hiwaga Ng Kambat that further convinced us that they’re indeed the next big thing in the local entertainment scene.
Among this list, Loisa Andalio and Ronnie Alonte’s team-up is definitely the most unique as they started out as a couple before becoming an on-screen pair. LoiNie had their debut via Wansapanataym: Gelli In A Bottle, wherein they impressed us with their comedic and serious acting. They were then tapped to join The General’s Daughter, in which they thrilled us with their portrayal of best friends-turned-lovers Claire and Ivan.
Witnessing their promising performances as tandems and individuals, not to mention how adorable they were together, in Kadenang Ginto, it wasn’t surprising that young loveteams Kyle Echarri and Francine Diaz and Seth Fedelin and Andrea Brillantes easily won our hearts. With how they effortlessly make us smile, laugh, kilig, and even cry on-and-off-cam, these teen superstars have already proven that both of them could be the next big tandems of Philippine showbiz.
