Missed them together? To all fans out there, brace yourselves because the McRis tandem is making a comeback! For the upcoming episode of Maalaala Mo Kaya this Saturday, McCoy De Leon and Maris Racal team up once again for an unforgettable love story.
McCoy and Maris were once an onscreen tandem in the 2016 afternoon comedy-drama We Will Survive. Maris played Jenny, the responsible sister of Wilma (Pokwang) who fell in love and settled down at the end of the story with her college sweetheart Ralph, portrayed by McCoy.
However, after their awesome tandem, McCoy and Maris went separate ways and continued to flourish in their individual career paths and the kilig love teams they formed with other celebrities.
Now, they are set to reunite on MMK! As seen on MMK’s official Facebook page, McCoy will portray Erlwin while Maris will play Carol, whose love story will mainly involve love letters, as per the caption of their MMK episode’s official poster which says: “Sa isang sulat pwedeng magsimula ang lahat.”
McCoy and Maris had separate MMK appearances in June 2018. Maris led the cast in the episode “Ukelele,” portraying Tin, the composer of Himig Handog’s 2017 winning song “Titibo-Tibo”. Meanwhile, McCoy De Leon last appeared as Romel, a fisherman who conquered the threat of an illness which plagued his family.
