When John Prats and Angelica Panganiban starred in the 1999 teen show G-mik, no one probably imagined that they would be partners in crime to this day. But here they are now with nine years of friendship and more to come.
Their Instagram accounts hold enough proof of the beautiful friendship. When John greeted Angelica on her birthday with a post, it was revealed that their pet name for each other is literally “Pets.” When Angelica congratulated him right before getting married, fans could help but get emotional at the caption, “Nanonood ako ng gmik kanina sa jeepney tv. Sobra kong tinamaan sa pinagsamahan natin. Mga bata pa lang tayo, palagi na tayong magkasama. Ngayon, ikakasal ka na. Sa susunod binyag na pupuntahan ko. im very happy for the both of you pets. have fun tonight”. Naturally, on the big day, Angelica would be his one and only best woman.
On Magandang Buhay, John talked about how out of all his many friends, Angelica and Sam Milby are the ones he can always count on. “I have lots of friends, pero I only have two closest friends talaga na alam kong ‘pag may problem ako nandyan—si Sam and si Angelica”, he explained. There have been times when he would go MIA because of a girlfriend, but he knows that he can come back to them at any time.
John also revealed that the secret to their strong bond is being there for each other all the time, “kasi alam naming na hindi lang kami puro saya,” he said.
Last year, around November, the trio stepped up their friendship to being business partners. They started a production company called Bright Bulb. It was initially John and Sam’s business venture, then invited the actress as their third partner. Aside from the financial investment, the three are also very hands on. Angelica handles creative concepts, Sam oversees the technical and editing side, while John directs. Their first ever project was the music video for Moira dela Torre’s Malaya and currently has over five million views on YouTube. They really know how to set BFF goals.
