Fans of Joshua Garcia and Janella Salvador, who form the new breakout love team JoshNella, are hyped once again as they are set to star in their first Maalaala Mo Kaya episode together.
Their onscreen chemistry was discovered when they were first partnered in the recently concluded gothic romance-horror drama The Killer Bride.
With the hashtag #MMKYouCheerMeUp, the episode tells the story of a couple who first met on a cheering squad tryout. The two stars had to go under strict cheerleader training to prepare and better portray their characters. The story will revolve around the love story of the two, whose faith and destiny will be tested.
Despite the weight of the story, both of them seem like they are enjoying each other’s company while making this episode, as seen in this gallery of behind-the-scenes photos. They even posed for a picture with a clapper before going in on a scene.
Directed by Cathy Camarillo and written by Michael Bryan A. Transfiguracion, the episode’s behind-the-scene photos show the director guiding Janella and Joshua in completing their scenes. This is Joshua’s second time and Janella’s first time to be working with Direk Cathy.
