2018 continues to be a big year for Maris Racal and Inigio Pascual, a rising love team gearing up for their first ever big-screen outing together.
We caught up with the two young stars at "The Hows of Us" World Premiere last night, August 28, and they served us with a much-anticipated update on "I'm Ellenya L" (the teaser of which was shown during the event). According to MarNigo, the film, which tells the story of an aspiring social media influencer, is less romantic than what you'd expect for a love team's film debut.
Inigo said, "First movie namin, laugh trip lang 'yung movie, sobrang galing ni Maris sa movie na 'to...actually hindi siya kilig, comedy siya."
He continued, "More on laugh trip, kasi it's more of a challenge for us...noong ginawa namin 'tong movie namin. Siyempre I've never done comedy, pero masasabi ko na nag-shine dito 'yung talent ni Maris, not just as a comedienne but also as an actress."
Maris also sang praises for his leading man's acting chops. In fact she gave him the ultimate compliment, saying, "Feeling ko ka-eksena ko si Papa P (Inigo's dad Piolo Pascual). May mga shots talaga na [magkamukha sila]."
"I'm Ellenya L" will hit cinemas very soon.
Maris previously appeared in the 2016 hit "Vince and Kath and James" led by Joshua Garcia and Julia Barretto, whom she will reunite with for the upcoming Mikhail Red zombie movie "Block Z". She was also part of the 2017 horror-thriller "Bloody Crayons." Inigo, on the other hand, played Daniel Padilla's brother in the 2015 romantic comedy "Crazy Beautiful You".
