Young stars Ashley del Mundo and Gello Marquez made the rainy day extra ‘kilig’ and senti as they look back on making He’s Into Her, which is now down to its final episode.
For Ashley, doing the successful teen series was a fun experience and she’s sad that it’s about to end. “I’m praying for Season 2,” she said in this episode of Kapamilya Chat. The show took them two years of preparation and filming, hence the bond, friendships, and family that grew along the way.
“Noong lock-in days, doon namin mas nakilala ang isa’t isa. Mas nakapag-usap kami about life, about sa mga sarili namin,” shared Gello, who would miss his character Lorde’s “simpleng banat” and being the barkada’s “papansin” guy. While other kontrabidas are relieved to let go of their mean on-screen character, Ashley would miss being a “mataray” campus girl because she isn’t like that in real life.
Ashley would often tell Gello that she’s proud of him and he’s very talented “in so many different ways.” The two found new friendship on set and promised to always support each other. She told him, “Nandito lang ako to watch you achieve your dreams and goals in life.” Gello answered that, “Alam mo naman na nandito lang ako kung kailangan mo ng kausap, kaibigan, o ano pa man. Sana magkita ulit tayo soon. Miss na kita.”
Gello, whose ticket to showbiz was joining Idol Philippines, now enjoys acting as well. His dream project is either a rom-com or horror-suspense series.
Ashley, a former Pinoy Big Brother Teens housemate, grew up watching classic teleseryes like Mara Clara. She wishes to be cast as a major kontrabida in a drama series. It might look impossible given her sweet nature but Ashley can pull off anything, as Gello assured, “Hindi natin alam, guys. Magaling to si Ash, so hindi natin alam kung ano pa ‘yung mga kaya niyang gawin.” On playing mean girl, Ashley takes inspiration from foreign films.
Asked their dream showbiz buddy, Gello mentioned he’d like to be friends with Daniel Padilla. He watches the King of Hearts’ interviews and sees his maturity in his career and relationship with Kathryn Bernardo. Ashley wishes to work with Liza Soberano and Enrique Gil in the future.
Even AshGello is thrilled to see the He’s Into Her finale this Sunday (August 1) on Kapamilya Channel, Kapamilya Online Live, and A2Z and this Friday on iWantTFC. They are clueless on the final output but one thing fans must watch out for is the championship between Benison Bears and the Southbay Sharks, and who between the schools’ team captains Deib Lohr (Donny Pangilinan) and RJ (Jeremiah Lisbo), respectively, will win the love of Maxpein (Belle Mariano).
Inspired by campus traditions, He’s Into Her will hold a special virtual concert and fan gathering titled “The Benison Ball” on August 6. Here’s the news: VIP Tickets sold like hotcakes! General admission tickets are still available for fans to watch the concert as well as its after party.
Apart from DonBelle and the cast including Jeremiah Lisbo, Vivoree Esclito, Joao Constancia, Kaori Oinuma, and Criza Taa, there are special guests to perform including BGYO, Jayda Avanzado, and Gigi de Lana.
