Yves Flores and Chanel Morales star in the September 24 episode of “Ipaglaban Mo” tagged as #IMpangarap.
Yves plays Tommy who is the pride of his parents for being an achiever, both academically and in sports. He has great dreams that he wanted to achieve, but a vehicular accident will change the course of his life. Guia (Chanel) is Tommy’s childhood friend who also becomes his source of confidence after the accident. Chanel shares that she was able to relate to her role because, even in real life, she is the one whom her close friends go to for advice. Yves, meanwhile, says that he shares a certain likeness with his character because he is also an achiever in his family. Yves became the bread-winner for his family after his father retired. The actor also reveals that he found it challenging that most of his sequences in this “Ipaglaban Mo” episode involved a lot of crying. However, Yves insists that he is very thankful that Pinky Amador and Ricardo Cepeda were there to help him out in the intense scenes. It also helped that Chanel was so easy to work with. The actor gushes about how good Chanel’s acting was, that even in his wheelchair scene, he still could feel the emotions of the actress without being able to see her faceat all.
