Janella Salvador On Switching Love Team Partners

  • July 1, 2017

In 2016, Janella Salvador was one-half of two love teams: ElNella with Elmo Magalona and MarNella with Marlo Mortel.

Janella says it was a good experience being in a love team with Elmo. She didn’t expect them to be friends right away because it was the first time she had met the actor. “Pareho kaming quiet, ‘di kami nag-uusap at first, pero we bonded when we went to Japan for [the teleserye] Born for You. Doon kami naging close.”

Janella narrates that the highlight of their first year as a love team included traveling. “We were able to tour together. We went to London for an endorsement, then New York for ASAP,” she recalls. After starting off as strangers, the two are good friends now.

When it comes to her first love team partner Marlo Mortel, Janella says she was pleasantly surprised when they were paired again in the movie Mano Po 7: Chinoy. “We worked together in so many projects, like Be Careful With My Heart, Oh My G, and Haunted Mansion. When we got separated, we really missed each other,” she confesses.
