Becoming an Ultimate Squad

Elmo, Donny, and Jerome were not the closest before they became part of the movie “Walwal”. Some of them have only heard of the other or were just simple acquaintances. Eventually, these three guys were brought together when Direk Joey Reyes handpicked them for their roles. The boys tell us that even though they did not know each other that well before coming onto the set, their personalities clicked right away as soon as they started filming. This eventually paved the way to a friendship that gave them great chemistry on- screen.

“During the movie, nag-kakwetuhan lang kami lahat and naging close kami,” Jerome tells Inside Showbiz Weekly. From there, they started hanging out even off set. They would go out after tapings to play basketball or to simply just hang out and bond with each other.

In Donny’s words, “Things can happen spontaneously, friendships happen out of nowhere.” He continued on to share a little anecdote about a time when only Donny, Kiko, and Elmo were on call for shooting on a specific day and after taping was done, they called up Jerome to hang out and he came straight over to the set. One of the things that the boys bond over now is a mobile game called “Rules of Survival” which Elmo says they all play when they do get to see each other.
