Edward Barber, known as the “Cheerful Charmer of Germany” in the reality TV program Pinoy Big Brother Lucky Season 7 and the other half of the popular loveteam “MayWard”, takes the hot seat on Tonight with Boy Abunda. He talks about his participation in the new film, First Love, starred by Aga Muhlach and Bea Alonzo, as well as his relationship with on-screen partner Maymay Entrata.
The Fil-German actor has been causing a buzz in the industry ever since he left the iconic blue-and-yellow house in 2017. Since then, he had taken on several brand endorsements and starred in films and television programs in the Kapamilya Network—including La Luna Sangre, Loving in Tandem and Wansapanatym Presents Ikaw ang Ghosto Ko. It is no surprise that the charming 18-year-old has gotten a lot of attention with his natural good looks and cheerful personality.
Many fans were surprised when it’s announced that he wouldn’t be starring alongside his on-screen partner, Maymay, in First Love. When the King of Talk asks if he had second thoughts about taking a project without her, Edward admits that he did, consider it’s always been he and Maymay from the start and that it’s different not being able to work with her. However, the young actor admits that career-wise, he understands that there will be times when they would have to take separate projects in order to grow as actors. Tito Boy also asks about his experience working with veteran actors such as Aga Muhlach and Bea Alonzo to which Edward expresses his admiration and gratefulness for as they helped him through his acting and gave very good advice during their filming.
Edward admits that Maymay is a very special person in his life and has grown protective of her. He goes to tell that Maymay had sent him a video to cheer him on during his filming, easing his nervousness on working with big-time actors. When asked if he would marry her if it was the last night of the world, the actor undoubtedly says yes.
Near the end of the show, the King of Talk plays a question-and-answer game with the actor and his fans to test just how much his supporters know him. Edward’s fans, however, proved without effort how much they know their fave idol and answers every single question similarly with Edward—including what he would have been doing in Germany if he wasn’t a celebrity, the pose he can imitate from Maymay, and the person he names as his first love.
