While we can’t get inside artists’ taping bubble, we can always take a peek into their happy lock-in world, thanks to exclusive stories and behind-the-scene secrets they share. In this episode of Kapamilya Chat, Albie Casino and Kate Alejandrino spill the tea about their co-stars in Init sa Magdamag.
Taking on the Bukingan Challenge, Albie and Kate would reveal who’s who among the Init sa Magdamag cast members. They voted Mark Oblea as the “pinakamataw.” Albie hailed Gerald Anderson as a runner-up, although the latter does intermittent fasting on most days.
On the co-star they dearly miss, Kate mentioned her roommate Aleck Bovick while Albie chose Nikko Natividad. They said they couldn’t wait to get out of the lock-in bubble but the ‘sepanx’ would hit once they leave.
None of them gets called out, thanks to their professionalism. Albie recalled a laudable encounter with newcomer Gab Lagman, who became his basketball buddy at the home base. He said they had a balling habit after each taping day. But there was a night when Gab begged off to prepare for an intense scene to be shot the next morning.
Albie enthused, “O, ‘di ba?! Wala pang tatlong taon sa industriya ‘yan, ah! Nung ako bago lang ako sa showbiz, hindi ko nga binabasa ‘yung script, eh. Tapos siya, hindi siya magba-basketball para magbasa ng script!”
Yam Concepcion and Apey Obera, the vloggers of the gang, love to take photos and videos on the set. Apey and Nikko Natividad are hailed the TikTok King and Queen.
“I’ll take the crown,” Albie said when asked the noisiest cast member. Nikko will make a good contender as well. These guys are also the source of laughter, according to Kate.
They went for Gerald Anderson and Aleck as the most generous.
Lastly, Tetchie Agbayani is hailed the most chill Init sa Magdamag star, Kate revealed, “Sine-setup niya ‘yung chair niya tapos may little table siya. Tapos gano’n siya, ‘Hi, guys! Kumusta na kayo?’ Tapos kailangan ikaw ‘yung lalapit para makipagkwentuhan.”
