JM de Guzman Pairs Up With Barbie Imperial for Araw Gabi

  • February 12, 2018

To mark his official comeback in show business, actor JM de Guzman gets a brand new leading lady and it is none other than former Pinoy Big Brother housemate Barbie Imperial. We’re certain no one expected this team up because of the large age gap (ten years to be exact) but looking at their recent promotional photos, it looks like JM and Barbie might actually make it work.

JM and Barbie are set to pair up for the upcoming Precious Heart Romances serye, Araw Gabi. While this project is the return of JM, for Barbie, this is her biggest break yet which makes the serye crucial for both actors.

According to ABSCBN Business Unit Head, Ruel Bayani, he personally chose and waited for JM for this role.

“I made sure! Kinakampanya ko ‘yan na paglabas niya, meron kaming project na gustong ibigay sa kanya. And I waited for him to be okay because as you know, he’s one of our best, one of our most sensitive actors.”

Bayani also said that he believes that JM deserves a second chance in this industry.

Naniniwala ako that people should be given second, third chances because you can be the most professional, you can be the nicest, but the people want more. They want an actor that they can connect with, yung heart, body, and soul. And nagkataon, JM is one of those actors. He’s that kind of actor na nagko-connect ka dahil ang husay niya.”

He also teased that the serye will be a sexy, afternoon drama. What do you think of this unlikely pairing?
