Will there be enough time for a love that’s challenged by an illness? For its Valentine episode, Maalaala Mo Kaya brings us the love story of Jon and Angel, played by Kit Thompson and Jane Oineza, a couple who proved their love’s limitless strength as one of them battled cancer.
In his guesting on Kapamilya Chat, Kit described Jon and Angel’s tale as “medyo mabigat, masakit pero at the same time inspirational.” He said the episode reminded him that tomorrow is never promised so “give it your all and just appreciate every moment you have with the people you love.”
The episode marks his onscreen reunion with Jane, whom he admittedly courted almost a decade ago. Although they had a thing in the past and haven’t seen each other for long, working with each other has been easy. Kit praised his leading lady’s brilliance and said it’s a pleasure to work with her.
And whatever happened nine years ago didn’t make things awkward. “She is very professional. We’ve grown a lot throughout the 9 years. Wala namang naging problema, walang awkwardness sa work,” shared Kit.
Be inspired by Jon and Angel’s story in MMK “Angel of Mine,” this Saturday, February 12, on Kapamilya Channel, Kapamilya Online Live, and A2Z.
