In an exclusive interview with Inside Showbiz, DerBie shared their experience in making Almost A Love Story. 

“I feel at home kay Derrick. No more adjustments, siya yung Derrick na naka-work ko four years ago at mas lalo pa siyang gumaling,” Barbie said.


For Derrick, he stated that he has always been proud of being paired with Barbie. “I’ve always been proud and thankful na si Barbie yung love team ko. And always thankful din ako sa GMA na pina-partner kami. Lahat ng projects namin together, always a good time talaga.”


The tandem also praised their director, Louie Ignacio. Even though they filmed abroad, Barbie said that director Ignacio didn’t let them feel uncomfortable. “Hindi niya pinaramdam samin na nasa ibang lugar kami. He made us feel secure at alagang alaga kami. Sobrang metikuloso niya kaya nakakatuwa kasi may vision talaga siya as a director,” Barbie shared.

“First time ko maka-work si Direk Louie and very hands on siya when he doesn’t like what I did, uulitin niya talaga. He helped me to be great and helped me stand out.”

Aside from non-stop guestings and promotions for their movie, DerBie is already busy working on their next project which is a primetime drama. Almost A Love Story is still showing in cinemas nationwide.
