Tonight with Boy Abunda welcomes Neil Coleta, the lead star of the upcoming film, “Pang MMK,” included in the Cinema One Originals Festival 2018.
On the TWBA hot seat, he talks about his long-time friendship with Kapamilya actor Daniel Padilla, his relationship with his non-showbiz girlfriend and shares his experiences in filming his first-ever leading role in the film, “Pang MMK.”
The King of Talk opens the show by showing Neil a throwback photo from 7 years ago with his actor and good friend, Daniel Padilla. Neil reveals that back then, Daniel was very shy and one could hardly tell he had all that talent and confidence in him. When asked on Daniel’s relationship with his on and off-screen partner, Kathryn Bernardo, Neil admits to have done a lot of teasing to Kathryn before, goading her to become closer to Daniel. Despite Kathryn being focused on her career and Daniel being too shy to make a move, Neil admits to have seen the spark and chemistry between them even before they became one of the most popular loveteams of today.
On talks of his latest film, Neil shares the story of “Pang MMK” and how it’s a story based from a film released 20 years ago and picks up from where the story left off. Neil plays a gay character in the film and Tito Boy asks how he tackles this type of character and what are the highlights of his role, which the viewers should look forward to. Neil responds by saying that tackling a role varies depending on what type of personality he ought to be portraying and that people should look forward to his kissing scene with co-star Anjo Damiles.
Near the end of the program, Tito Boy challenges Neil to do Fast Talk where the actor reveals some pretty interesting facts—including his dream role, his MMK life story title as well as his personal rating on his kissing skills. One of the most intriguing revelations of the night is when Neil admits that actress Elisse Joson is his dream leading lady.
