Edward Barber feels incredibly lucky to have Maymay Entrata in his life!
In an interview on “Magandang Buhay” today, July 16, the young actor, who had just celebrated his 19th birthday, expressed how happy and thankful he is for the blessing that is his on-screen partner.
“I’m really happy kasi alam ko, because of her, she made me realize that whatever the challenge is, even if she's not there, kaya ko as long as I have my faith. I'm really happy to have her,” he exclaimed.
He revealed that it was also Maymay who motivated him to take his role in the weekly show “Hiwaga ng Kambat.”
He explained, “I am a very anxious person. I always get stressed whenever there is a big challenge. Halimbawa, 'yung "Hiwaga ng Kambat," as in halos ayaw kong tanggapin ‘yung project kasi first time ko na pure Tagalog lines, first time ko na may prosthetics ako, may fight scenes na ganyan.”
“Pero siya talaga ‘yung nag-push [sa akin]. She really pushed me to take the role.”
His way of showing appreciation? Edward promised that he will always be there to support Maymay in the same way.
“Kahit anong mangyari, hindi ako lalayo sa kanya. Ayun ‘yung totoo,” he said.
The actor added, “Pinagusapan namin a few days ago, if ever something would happen, for example, sa mga families namin and I need to exit show business, I will make sure na I will still be there for her.”
Edward was recently introduced as a new MYX video jockey. His last big screen projects included the 2018 drama flick “First Love,” and the blockbuster hit “Fantastica.”
