Still got love hangover after Valentine’s Day? This MayWard video is the cure you need!
Maymay Entrata and Edward Barber have offered fans plenty of kilig moments in front and behind the cameras. But for this special video, the love team is sitting down to have a heart to heart conversation about their friendship.
How would you describe your partner?
Maymay praises Edward for being brave and unwavering. He has fears and doubts, but these do not stop him from reaching from his goals. “Kahit man talagang nauunahan siya ng mga kinakatakutan niyang mangyari, ‘yung mga bagay na akala niya hindi niya kayang abutin, mas pipiliin niya pa ring lumaban at kamitin kung ano ‘yung gusto niya makamit.”
Edward admires Maymay for being mature. Most people see her as bubbly and happy-go-lucky, but there are also times when she is serious. “Sure ka 22 ka?” he would wonder whenever he sees her different sides. Sometimes she does not act her age, but sometimes she acts beyond her age.
How did you two become close?
During the shoot of their movie, “Loving in Tandem”, they were still getting to know each other. It was hard because they were still adjusting. Eventually, for the sake of the project, they decided to open up. “Nagkataon lang na parang hindi na namin kaya na hindi kami mag-open up sa isa’t isa kasi nagtatrabaho kaming dalawa,” she revealed. This was one of their first deep and serious conversations.
Before this, her grandfather and his grandmother passed away just days from each other when they were still housemates inside Pinoy Big Brother house. Sharing their grief comforted them and helped them connect. “That was really the time where I can say I knew Maymay deeper than who Maymay was inside Kuya’s house,” he confessed.
What important lessons did you learn from each other?
The Kapamilya actress learned how to be more expressive. It used to be a habit of hers to just endure whatever she felt. But Edward made her realize that it was important to open up and relieve her stress. “Dapat may isang tao na dapat sabihan mo para magaan. Hindi ‘yung dala-dala mo siya kasi bubuo ‘yun,” she advised.
Meanwhile, the Kapamilya actor became more independent. “Sanay kami na magkasama kami lagi kahit sa eksena, sa recording, sa rehearsal,” he explained. So, whenever he has a solo photoshoot or a production on ASAP Natin ‘To without her, he had to hold his ground. And it was Maymay who helped him become more self-reliant.
How and when did you realize you were finally best friends?
After spending so much time together, there came a point when they stopped feeling shy whenever they were together. “’Yung parang kung ano man ‘yung mukha ko, lahat na nakita na niya,” Maymay said. They did not feel conscious around each other anymore and did not worry about their looks as much.
Halfway shooting “Loving in Tandem”, Edward remembers struggling on set. One shot took them up to 20 takes. They are thankful for people’s support, especially their family and friends’, but none of them understood what they were going through exactly. They felt so much pressure, sometimes all they could do was cry. “It felt so good that I had a friend that understood exactly what I’m feeling,” he said.
Do you think there’s a chance that you two will eventually be together?
“In God’s perfect timing,” Edward thought. As much as possible, they do not want to listen to other people’s opinions about their relationship. Whatever happens will happen. Right now, they just want to enjoy being friends. “Ine-enjoy namin ‘yung moment na pagiging magkaibigan kami kasi alam namin, sure kami, na magla-last ‘yung friendship,” Maymay shared.
