A few weeks before the premiere of “Hello, Love, Goodbye,” Maymay Entrata visited the Tonight With Boy Abunda studio to talk about her experiences in filming in Hong Kong, Edward Barber’s surprise visit and her funny instagram stories.
Maymay shared that she has been to many countries in the past, but it was her first time to film a movie overseas. Some of Maymay’s co-stars shared their stories about her experiences in Hong Kong in a video showed by Boy Abunda.
Joross Gamboa imparted that she was trying to be independent but ended up lost and didn’t know how to go back home. But Maymay denied that she was lost, clarifying she just couldn’t get a taxi to reach her destination due to the language barrier. She even told the story of how Joross sent a cameraman to use Maymay’s experience as content for his vlogs. While Kakai Bautista shared that they visited Disneyland and angered a Chinese family seated in front of them in a ride due to Maymay’s loud singing voice. Additionally, Maymay and her female co-stars went to a sauna but the Pinoy Big Brother Lucky Season 7 Big Winner initially thought that it was a jacuzzi. And she was shocked to see a naked foreigner enter the sauna since they were all in their bikinis.
During the shooting of “Hello, Love, Goodbye,’ Maymay revealed that Kathryn Bernardo was prohibited by the director to interact with the cast much to help her internalize her character’s timidness. But they tried to sneak off a few times in which Maymay grabbed the chance to ask Kathryn about her experiences in the showbiz industry. Kathryn has also given her numerous gifts such as a push-up bra that still doesn’t fit her and various lip tints.
On the other hand, Edward Barber, Maymay’s onscreen partner, tried to surprise her on set but failed. She said that Edward isn’t good with surprises due to his overexcitement beforehand and so, she already knew that Edward was in Hong Kong to visit her before he could surprise her. “’Yung hindi mo kailangang maging iba para magustuhan ka niya,” she said when asked what’s the best thing about having Edward as a partner. She added they prefer to talk and watch movies more than to go on social media.
Tito Boy asked Maymay to explain one of her weird instagram stories. It was a random video of her and Edward whispering gibberish while posing close-up to the camera. She said that it was just one of the silly things that they do together.
Maymay played “The Last Five” to end the show. She revealed that she’s always kilig when she’s with her Hiwaga ng Kambat co-star at any given moment.
