Anthony and Alora share their starstruck moments with Piolo, Pia via Bukingan Challenge

“My Papa Pi” stars Alora Sasam and Anthony Jennings tease viewers about the show and all the fun happenings on set by playing “Bukingan Challenge.”

In this game by Kapamilya Chat, Alora and Anthony admitted to getting starstruck with the sitcom’s lead stars Piolo Pascuala and Pia Wurtzbach.

She said Piolo asked her to tone down the fangirl mode but she can’t help it, “Napagsasabihan ako ni Papa P, ‘Huwag na kasi, Alora.’ Gumaganun kasi siya. Pero sasabihin ko, ‘Papa P, tina-try ko nga, na-o-overwhelm lang talaga ako sa’yo.’” She added that Piolo is so humble he reaches out to his co-stars.

Anthony shared that he handed Pia a bottle of water then segued to introducing himself on their first taping day. The Miss Universe 2015 titleholder is most likely to draw attention because of her beauty but Anthony didn’t expect her to be so kind and humble as well.

They also revealed that Joross Gamboa is their ultimate source of laughter. He’s witty and the most energetic among them. Hyubs Azarcon could be the runner-up. Together they help insert more punchlines in the script. “Si Direk, ‘pag hindi siya natatawa sa mga line sa script, nagpapatulong siya kina Joross at Hyubs,“ said Alora.

“All of the above,” they quipped when asked who often gets scolded by Direk Cathy Garcia-Molina. Alora explained, “Ano lang ‘yun, dahil lang sa eksena. Pero after ng shoot, nagba-bonding na parang wala lang.”

After taping, they all bond over ‘chika’.  “After ng shoot, nagba-bonding kami kasi importante ‘yun sa comedy. Kasi bawat eksena as a group, so dapat may rapport kami. So kailangan bonding kami. Minsan umabot na kami sa mga retreat ang pinag-uusapan namin,” shared Alora.

She said it’s easy to open up to her castmates that she got emotional one time, “Sobrang tiwalang-tiwala ako at ang ganda ng advice na binigay nila sa akin. Kaya pala hindi ko napigilan ‘yung mga moments na ‘yun kasi need ko’ yung words of wisdom nila.”

They also voted Piolo and Pia as “galante” or most generous among the cast members.

The happy bunch led by Piolo, Pia and Pepe Herrera will add zest to your Saturday nights starting March 19, at 7pm, on  Kapamilya ChannelKapamilya Online Live, A2Z, and iWantTFC.
