This Saturday, Jopay Paguia will appear in the episode of Ipaglaban Mo entitled “Pangako” starring Tommy Esguerra and Miho Nishida or more popularly known as ToMiho. She will play the role of Faye, the loyal best friend and support system of Bessie (played by Miho Nishida). Both of them work in a bar in Olongapo where they will meet several foreigners.
Since it was her first time to work with both Tommy and Miho, she shared how she enjoyed working with the two. “Si Miho, mababaw lang eh, natatawa siya sa mga banat ko, simple lang naman, napaka-casual. Si Tommy rin, kaya duguan ang ilong ko! Napakabait na mga bata. Sa tingin ko, sobrang mamahalin talaga nila ang trabaho nila kasi grabe, ang dami ring nagmamahal na fans sa kanila. Sobrang sinuportahan talaga sila ng mga tao.”
She also revealed how impressed she was with the work ethics of the two. “Napaka-professional nila kahit behind the scenes. Nag-uusap lang sila. Nakikita ko lagi silang nagcoconcentrate sa ginagawa nila.” She shared how humble Miho and Tommy were. They weren’t afraid to ask her questions and acting tips to help improve their craft. She recalled how she helped them when they had a hard time staring at each other in one of the scenes. “Nagkaka-ilangan sila kasi titigan.” She also added “Kinikilig ako sa kanilang dalawa. Bagong couple tapos magkasama sa trabaho. Nakakatuwa sila.”.
