Edward Barber‘s supporting role in Aga Mulach and Bea Alonzo‘s First Love is clearly a big break for the young actor. It’s Edward’s first movie without his love team partner, Maymay Entrata, but according to him, the young actress has been nothing but supportive of this milestone.
Edward shared that he almost couldn’t believe it when he received the news of the possibility of getting to work alongside Bea and Aga. “When I first found out I got called by my manager, ‘Edward don’t freak out,’ sinabi niya, ‘This is what could happen if you want it.’ I didn’t know what to say. I was speechless on the call when I hang out the phone. Maymay and my mom were actually there and we are in the same room. I said ‘Mom, I might be in the movie with Aga Muhlach and Bea Alonzo.’ She was really excited,”
As for Maymay, Edward said that she believes in him so much. “I turned to Maymay and told her. She walked up to me, my hand was shaking. I was so excited that my hands were shaking. I am a really new actor. I am in showbiz for a year now and to get this chance is an amazing opportunity. When Maymay came up to me, she said ‘Kayang kaya mo yan. I know you can do this. It’s your chance to do it,’”
Of course, Edward was asked again about his relationship status with Maymay Entrata. “My relationship with Maymay is something I could not compare to any other pair I have ever seen before. I can’t compare it to my parents, I can’t compare it to my friends and their loved ones. Maymay is not really a normal person. That’s why she’s more amazing than most girls I know. That it isn’t a bad thing, that’s what makes her amazing. She’s one of the people that I love most in my life,”
Edward later on settled with the label “soulmates” which made the whole room kilig.
