The McLisse tandem is back! The love team of McCoy de Leon and Elisse Joson is set to star in their first movie together entitled Sakaling Maging Tayo. The two former partners are now back to seeing each other almost every day to promote the movie after going through a rift in their relationship while filming the movie.
It was August of last year when reports of McCoy de Leon and Elisse Joson having a falling out surfaced. After months of the media speculation, the two actors finally acknowledged the rift that they went through. At that time, McCoy and Elisse were still in the middle of filming their debut movie, Sakaling Maging Tayo.
“May time na sa totoong buhay na may hindi kami pagkakaintindihan ni Mccoy during shooting. Isinapuso at isinaisip namin na kailangan natin ‘tong i-set aside, kailangan natin ‘tong mabigay ng maayos. Basta nag-fofocus kami kahit na may personal na problema or anything. Kayang-kaya parin eh, kaya maging okay ang outcome kasi trabaho,” shared Elise during the media launch of Sakaling Maging Tayo.
According to Elisse, the shooting of Sakaling Maging Tayo also paved the way for some reconciliation of some sort on set. “Siyempre, may ginagawa kaming pelikula, kailangan naming mag-usap, kailangan naming ayusin not just yung work relationship, pero yung personal na pagsasamahan namin. So ayun, there was also time din naman na kung hindi namin maayos-ayos, kailangan din naming i-set aside ‘yun and nagawa naman po,” elaborated Elise.
McCoy shared that it was the people around them at work that inspired them to finish the project strong. “Nagkakaproblema pero kailangan gawin ‘yun. Naging lakas po namin yung mga taong nag-push saamin, yung mga handler namin, director namin, producers, lahat. Sila yung nagiging lakas namin to finish the movie. At the same time po, hindi naman lahat ng artista nabibigyan ng ganito kaya saamin i-set aside namin ‘to. Kaya awa ng Diyos natapos naman yung palabas. Nabigay naman namin yung pinaka-kailangan,” shared McCoy.
The film’s director, JP Habac, also shared his experience with working with McLisse during the time that things were rocky between McCoy and Elisse. “Kung may pinagdadaanan na personal huwag natin idamay yung trabaho kasi hindi lang naman sila yung maaapektuhan, [kung hindi] pati yung mga katrabaho nila. So patuloy lang ang reminder ko para sa kanila,” shared Direk JP.
Sakaling Maging Tayo premieres in cinemas nationwide on January 16.
