Former Pinoy Big Brother housemates Elisse Joson and Kit Thompson teamed up for the very first time to give us the beautiful and inspiring love story of the real-life viral couple Mark and Ancel Vasquez, on MMK’s “Painting” episode.
Last Saturday, March 9, we witnessed another inspiring tale of hope and courage in Ancel and Mark’s story, showing us how true love can conquer anything, even people’s cruel perception about physical “compatibility.” Their love story is indeed a great example of how love looks at the heart and not physical appearance, particularly one’s built.
On Kapamilya Chat, Elisse shared how happy she is in being challenged for portraying a curvaceous chubby girl for the first time. With this, Elisse revealed to us how she prepared for her role as Ancel. Upon knowing who the letter sender is, Elisse did her own research about Ancel. She checked on Ancel’s social media accounts. Aside from Ancel’s visit to the set while the aforementioned MMK episode was being taped, Elisse invited Ancel to dinner so she could bond with and know more about the letter sender. This enabled Elisse to better portray Ancel.
Still on the said Kapamilya Chat episode, Elisse mentioned that she and Kit have known each other for a long time but this is really the first time they were paired on screen. Although Elisse admitted that she and Kit struggled on their first taping day, she shared that the second taping day went smoothly for them.
