In November of 2018, Tonight with Boy Abunda welcomed two well-known faces in the industry, Nash Aguas and Sharlene San Pedro. The two child stars-turned-teens took the TWBA hot seat to talk about their first starring film, “Class of 2018,” and gave us the lowdown on the truth behind the tandem “NashLene.”
Many would know Nash and Sharlene from the long-running comedy program Goin’ Bulilit where the two became mainstay actors and have graced the television scene with their cute and hilarious antics. Their friendship, however, stemmed way back to 2004 where the two became contenders in the reality-based talent competition, Star Circle Quest, and both managed to become part of the “Magic Circle 5”—finalists of the show.
Tito Boy asked about the status of their hearts which then led to the talks of their crushes. When Sharlene was asked on how many ‘special someones’ she’s had, Nash answered for her and said that there were two; making the starlet reveal that she used to have a huge crush on their Goin’ Bulilit co-star, Kobe Vidanes, and that she found him very cute, then.
On talks of their film, “Class of 2018,” the King of Talk pointed out that it’s their first leading roles—on top of that, their first role acting as a love team. Tito Boy then asked if there was a point in their career when they felt their chemistry—felt that there can be something more to their friendship to which both stars reveal “maybe.” Nash explained that he felt a kilig moment upon watching their performance on the primetime action-drama, FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano, while Sharlene admitted to have felt the spark between them as well. When asked on the possibility of becoming more than friends, Sharlene admitted that Nash is very boyfriend material but sees him more as a best friend. Nash shared similar thoughts, saying that he had shared so many things with her through the years and is her prankster buddy.
Tito Boy asked Sharlene if she ever got jealous of Nash’s showbiz girlfriend, Mika Dela Cruz, to which the young actress denied; saying that she’s pretty much rooting for her. On the other hand, Tito Boy asked Nash if he felt jealous of Sharlene’s fellow Myx VJ Donny Pangilinan. Sharlene was quick to shoot down the speculations, however, clearing that Donny is more like a big brother to her.
