Edward Barber has a bright future ahead. Or at least that's what his "First Love" co-stars, big industry players Bea Alonzo and Aga Muhlach are saying.
The pair, together with director Paul Soriano, got to spend time with the young actor for a few days while shooting in Vancouver, Canada. And in a recent fan Q & A, we found that they only have good things to say about Edward's humility, raw talent and work ethic.
Bea paid him a giant compliment, saying, "Ang galing-galing ni Edward! Nakaka-proud! Sobrang impressive!"
She went on, "He asked so many questions, na alam mong gusto niya talagang matuto. Sobrang impressive ni bagets. He's only 18, and alam mo ang layo ng mararating! Nakakatuwa talaga."
Of course, "hiya" is an inevitable thing Edward felt, being a newbie working with all these big stars. Aga was quick to put him at ease though.
Aga revealed, "Siyempre noong first shooting day alam kong naiilang siya sa akin. So sabi ko, 'Hey, we can rehearse if you want.' Tapos, hindi niya alam 'to pero noong nagre-rehearse kami...minali ko ['yung ginagawa ko]. Para ako 'yung mali, [para maging kumportable siya]. Para siya he becomes comfortable."
He added, "It started that way, and it was good the whole time."
We can't wait to see Edward shine in "First Love", which will hit cinemas this October 17.
