This is not a drill! One of our ultimate OTPs are getting back together on screen!
Roxanne Guinoo and Joross Gamboa are breaking their years-long hiatus as a love team for the iWant TFC series “Hoy, Love You.”
On last Sunday’s (January 10) episode of online talk show “I Feel U”, host Toni Gonzaga asked what this major reunion feels like for the two, who also dated briefly when they were younger.
Talking about their 16 years' worth of friendship, Roxanne explained, “Ngayon kasi mula nung nagkaroon kami ng kanya-kanyang mga pamilya, parang ‘pag nagkikita-kita, mga anak na ‘yung mga napag-uusapan. Mas matured na ‘yung topics.”
On their past romance, she shared, “Wala namang reason para mag-look back sa past. ‘Pag nagpag-uusapan ‘yung past, nakakatawa na lang siya. ‘Yung hiritan, parang fun-fun na lang talaga siya.”
Their dating relationship may not have worked, but it sure did leave them some very positive life lessons, which should be pretty useful for young love teams who may find themselves in a similar situation.
“Siguro mas i-retain nila (new gen love teams) ‘yung friendship more than anything else,” said Roxanne. “Usually mga love teams nagkakaroon ng mga ka-developan ‘yan, nagiging sila. Nagiging conflict ‘yan minsan sa eksena, especially ‘pag teenager ka. Pero siyempre personal ‘to, ‘di natin mako-control ‘yung mga emosyon ng mga bagets.”
Joross agreed, saying, “Everything happens for a reason. Minsan kasi tayo either matuto ka sa payo ng iba or ikaw mismo makaka-experience nun.”
We say this is a good piece of advice, especially if on-screen partners want to have the same longevity Roxanne and Joross’ tandem holds. And the people they’ve worked it on their upcoming series would attest to that.
Roxanne revealed how they effortlessly filled the set with kilig every time she and Joross would film scenes together. “Natatawa lang kami ‘pag nagkaka-moment-moment kami ni Joross sa eksena, kilig na kilig ‘yung mula kila Direk Ted (Boborol), hanggang staff, hanggang mga cameraman, and crew. Siguro kasi mga ka-age bracket natin sila. Somehow, [masasabi ko], ‘Uy, effective pa rin ang JoRox tandem.’”
If this still doesn’t get you excited, we don’t know what will! But their list of co-stars will surely hype you up: Aljon Mendoza, Karina Bautista, Dominic Ochoa, Pepe Herrera, Keanna Reeves, Brenda Garcia, AND the one and only, Carmi Martin!
Shot entirely in Batangas, “Hoy, Love You” will be streaming for FREE starting January 18 only on the iWant TFC app!
