There is no doubt that Kapamilyas love watching Jolina Magdangal-Escueta today as one of Magandang Buhay’s momshies. But fans will always remember her best moments from the 90s. So, as one of the symbols of the decade, we cannot help but revisit lane in this Throwback Backtrack Challenge!
“Parang pabura na ‘yung film,” Jolina reacted as soon as she saw the old clip from “F.L.A.M.E.S The Movie: Tameme.” One of the first memories that came jogging back to her was how light Marvin Agustin’s make-up was. “Ang puputi pa noong make-up namin dyan noon time,” she recalled the trend. She also revealed that this was one of her early projects with Marvin, “sa movie nagkakapaan pa talaga kami.” For the most part, she was still getting to know him as a co-star.
By 1998 when “Labs Kita, Okey Ka Lang?” came out, it was clear that Jolina and Marvin had gotten much closer. The actress still remembers her iconic lines word for word. “Memorize ko ‘yan,” she boasted. Her monologue was more than just lines on a script, they reflected her true feelings, “Totoo ‘yung napi-feel ko noong time na ‘yan.” Back then, production sets only used one camera and moved it to different spots to capture different angles, “Anggulo muna niya, anggulo ko.” So, it was important for their emotions to be consistent, unlike today where a set would have at least two cameras to use. “Kahit anong anggulo ang kunan ni Direk noon, nandoon ‘yung [emosyon] ko dahil ‘yun ‘yung kasagsagan na love ko si Marvin,” she recounted.
Last but certainly not least was “Tunay na Tunay: Gets Mo? Gets Ko!” where she starred alongside Robin Padilla. “Nahihiya na ako,” she stated. Watch this video to see how she reacted to seeing her clip with the action star. Do not miss her reenactment of each line too!
