Hand-in-hand and side-by-side, Pinoy Big Brother sweethearts Maymay Entrata and Edward Barber are helping each other shine on the silver screen.
Since Pinoy Big Brother: Lucky Season 7 where Mardale “Maymay” Entrata was hailed as the big winner, it’s been a mad dash to top. Days after coming out of Kuya’s house, Maymay and Edward Barber, a fellow PBB housemate, were quickly paired to become the newest love team in showbiz.
In just a span of a year, Maymay and Edward, now more fondly called MayWard, have achieved the unexpected. They’ve locked down major endorsement deals, filmed a hit television commercial, and are now headlining their first movie together, titled Loving in Tandem. The speed of their success has left many breathless, including them, but it’s an adrenaline-fueled adventure that the teens are ready and willing to take.
Coming into Inside Showbiz Weekly’s shoot at 7am, the two are a bundle of pure energy, quickly going around the room and giving hugs and kisses to every familiar face and stranger. After the initial introductions, within minutes, they’re back to annoying each other, making faces, poking ribs, and doing goofy dances for their fans who have logged on to watch the live stream of the shoot.
“Ang dami na talagang nagbago na hindi namin inakala,” shares Maymay. “Sobrang nagbago ang buhay namin. Simula noong pumasok kami sa bahay ni Kuya, hanggang lumabas kami, hindi namin inasahan ang mga pangyayari na ganito. Pero sobrang thankful kami sa lahat ng opportunity na ibinibigay sa amin,” she adds.
