Kapamilya Confessions: Elisse Joson talks about coping from anxieties, working with Richard Gutierrez in MMK

Nine months after delighting us with the first-ever on-screen team-up of Richard Gutierrez and Elisse Joson, Maalaala Mo Kaya is about to bring back the kilig vibes and inspiration they brought to us as it will be re-airing the “My Handsome Boss” episode this coming Saturday, August 8, on the Kapamilya Channel.

Elisse gamely took on the Kapamilya Confessions’ Complete The Sentence Challenge and enthusiastically responded to the questions sent in by her beloved fans and avid Kapamilya online followers.

In the Complete The Sentence game, the Kapamilya actress supplied her own answers to the blanks in the phrases given to her, which were both relatable and unexpected.

Afterwards, she went on to reply to some of the queries sent by her fans prior and during the live chat regarding her personal life and experience in working with Richard for that certain MMK episode. She sincerely discussed the struggles she went through as a rookie artist and how she was able to overcome those, her realizations and the things that made her know herself even more during this pandemic, what misses the most about her taping days prior to COVID-19, and how she’s able to cope up from anxiety during this whole community quarantine.

For Elisse, it’s doing the things that make her genuinely happy. “Ang nakatulong sa’kin is having activities that give me happiness, kunwari, simpleng bagay lang na pagluluto. Kapag ginagawa ko ‘yon, nawawala ‘yong mga worries ko. ‘Pag meron akong ginagawa, nawawala ‘yong worries ko. And importante, ‘yong ginagawa mong bagay na ‘yon, alam mong sasaya ka do’n [at] ‘di lang other people are doing it. So, find your own happiness. Hanapin mo ‘yong mga bagay na nagpapasaya sa’yo and ‘yon ang gawin mo.”

She also responded to a few questions about her first-ever collaboration with Richard, such as how she felt while doing it, other characters she would like to portray once she’ll be given to work with him in the future, and if her leading man is indeed handsome in person. Besides, she willingly heeded to the request of some for shout-outs, as well.
