It’s all about fun and hard work with a dash of kilig for Donny and Belle on the set of “Can’t Buy Me Love.”
One of the best parts about Donny Pangilinan and Belle Mariano’s first teleserye “Can’t Buy Me Love” is how it lets us escape reality for a while through the good vibes-inducing moments of the main characters.
Looking at the photos in this gallery, we can tell that DonBelle’s perfect partnership is one factor that keeps every scene flawless. On screen, all we see is the creative output; but off-cam, it takes team effort and unwavering dedication. For instance, in that scene where Bingo (Donny) saved Caroline (Belle) from drowning after she jumped into the waters to escape her abductors, half of the challenge was to deliver a realistic performance. And the other half was to endure the cold since they had to swim in an actual pool. But of course, Donny and Belle opt to enjoy the process.
In making a teleserye, it’s important that you can entirely trust and feel comfortable with your co-stars, which we see in Donny and Belle. They would act their usual goofy selves while waiting for the cameras to start rolling.
But they’re not confined only to each other, as they also get along well with the whole team. In the photos, you’ll find Bingo’s extended family making taping days a whole lot better through their organic camaraderie. Nova Villa playing Lola Nene is seen flashing her big smile with Donny, Karina Bautista, and the production team.
As lively as the colors of Binondo are the off-cam moments of Vivoree, Katya Santos, Ketchup Eusebio, Hyubs Azarcon, Gello Marquez, Alora Sasam, and Anthony Jennings. And what’s a barkada without the asaran? The gang posed in front of the sleeping Karina and Gello – for the sake of memories to look back on later.
From the Tiu family, Belle is spotted selfie-ing with her on-screen father Rowell Santiago, and the artists who took part in that scene of Caroline and her dad Wilson’s flight.
