Elisse Joson, McCoy de Leon to star in new film together

Real-life couple Elisse Joson and McCoy de Leon will be making their big-screen comeback in the upcoming film "Habang Buhay.”

On February 15, Elisse told Star Magic Inside News how exciting it is for her to star alongside McCoy since they last worked together in the 2019 film “Sakaling Maging Tayo.”

"First time ulit namin na mag-work together. So it's exciting kasi last time syempre ang daming challenges na pinagdaanan nun. So ngayon na lang po ulit kami nagkasama sa isang project,” she said of their comeback. 

“Nakakatuwa kasi at least ngayon iba na, iba na ‘yung feeling, iba ‘yung pakiramdam. Sobrang iba pero at the same time meron din kaming moments na parang ito pa rin ‘yung feeling nung dati,” she added.

At first, McLisse had bouts of apprehension that their on-screen chemistry might have already gone stale, but in filming the project, they realized they still have that “natural” spark as a love team.

“Akala nga po namin we won't be… parang, ‘Meron pa ba tayong connection? Makikita pa ba nila 'yung spark, 'yung chemistry?’ May mga worries kaming ganun but it comes out naturally so nakakatuwa naman po na nagagawa namin ngayon better 'yung mga kailangan naming gawin,” Elisse explained.

The 26-year-old actress also shared something new she learned about McCoy as a partner and co-star: "Si McCoy, he may seem like very mysterious lagi, may wall, he's okay, he’s happy but lagi din niya ring hinahanap ang comfort. He doesn't ask for it but you’ll feel it na, ay kailangan din pala niya ng konting kamusta, comfort, hug, ‘yung mga simpleng bagay na ganun.”

Elisse also learned the “sacrifice” of leaving their 10-month-old daughter Felize behind to join the locked-in taping.

"Nakakalungkot. 'Yun ang pinaka-sacrifice naming dalawa dahil pareho kaming wala,” she shared. “But she's in good hands kasi kasama po niya 'yung grandparents. Natuwa din sila na nakasama nila si Felize.”

Meanwhile, Elisse is starring in the iWantTFC series “The Goodbye Girl” which airs daily from February 14 until February 19.
