It's going to be an intriguing, semi-sexy but romantic episode this week at TV5's highest rating show as Edward Mendez and Marvelous Alejo star in Wattpad Presents: Said I Loved You. The story revolves around young childhood friends turned May-December affair relationship. It was a weird transition between these two and Edward's character didn't know how to become just a friend to Marvelous or become something else. People would just squirm just thinking about it. Eventually Edward had a girlfriend and Marvelous' character became the girl scorned. Add to that, when Edward's character who initially thought that it was nothing, suddenly felt something for her. Now, it's going to be a lot dangerous for both of them.
Marvelous says "I'm so flattered to be with the guy fantasized by guys, gays, girls and everybody else. Edward is so humble, very reserved at times. He's very cute when he smiles and very easy to get along with. I am very happy that this was given to me. This is my second Wattpad project and my first one was very successful when I was paired with a much younger guy. From being paired with teens to someone in Edward's age bracket, it's a little shocking and I had to made adjustments. Shocking because we also had to do a legit kissing scene and I was very nervous that I had to do that. Nervous level 10! I was asking him to help me and thinking what the public would actually think about me, about the person I'm kissing because he's not my usual partner too... that's what was on my mind the whole time. But then, it really went okay for my first legit screen kiss. Our director's energy is on level 11 out of 10, so it's a very fun shoot. He made us a little easy. I do have older guys as crushes, I like matured guys too. I said no at first with the kissing scene but when I texted management about it, they decided I go on with it and show a different Marvelous this time. It was only a smack and not that much of a french kiss, it was just light. I'm open to a little age gap, I think it's normal. A lot of girls can probably relate to me because they would want a man who can already understand them, and think maturely. In terms of problems, they decide better and I like that. His body looks really good, I saw it and I haven't really seen anything like that before. I didn't know what to do since this is my first screen kiss, I had a boyfriend but he's gone. This is different, you do it for love and you do it for work. (then I asked if she would fall in love with someone like Edward, she said) Yes..."
Edward on the other hand says "Working with Marvelous was fun, in the beginning she really was into the character. She was so nice, she was sweet, and she randomly cracks jokes whether off or on cam. Our director was fun and we were at ease, just seeing him made us a little jumpy even if we're already a little tired from taping the whole day. As for being gone for a little while, after the movie with Aiai I released my own fitness book and that became a best seller. It's a fitness book available in National Bookstore and released all throughout the country. This was actually my dream ever since I was a kid so I just fulfilled it. It's called "Your Dream Body Come True" which talks about exercise and healthy eating. I had a Wattpad episode last year with Ritz Azul, the kissing scene there was a little cheated but this one's sagad (then everyone laughed!). I didn't do any preparations, it was just a fun thing, a full kiss. It was a marvelous kiss and we had a few takes doing that scene. I'm thankful and I had a great time with people from this station because even if you're tired you're having fun. It's worth it and a privilege, as the stories are great and there are real people following it. With Marvelous, the age difference is little but Ritz and Marvelous played different age groups, Marvs is younger and Ritz played an older woman. I also had to be wholesome and the other was a bit physical. When we kissed, I think it was more lively this time because we didn't hesitate that much. In real life, I'm a real sucker for singers and Marvelous sang a few songs for me while we worked together and that was fun. (then Marvs sang Para Sa Akin beautifully at this point and had a few people stop what they were doing because of that)"
He adds "I didn't want to do this in the beginning, I just had common friends with my manager and found me there, I auditioned and this happened. I grew up in the US and I did Pinay Pie with Brad Turvey and Aiai. I finished Sports Science in Maryland so that's what I wrote my book successfully. I am an endorser for the Belo group since I was 18 and now I'm working with Sexy Solutions and I think that's why my forte is fitness. Acting wise, I'm enjoying it. I hope to get more projects this year. Hopefully after Wattpad I'd get to do a lot more with other offers. I'm really ready to take this on. I handle it pretty well and I think intrigue is part of the game. You can't do anything about it and explain everything to them. That happens, at the end of the day I know my self and I was raised by a good family and it doesn't disturb me. I'm having a good time and I'm enjoying it! I love this craft. As for topless scenes I guess it's a bit more wholesome and it's like a few minutes. There will be scenes, but it's going to be quick and funny, people should watch out for that. If I had to choose, I'd like someone younger because they're more fresh, 7 to 10 years is not bad. I would be glad to impart wisdom. I did modelling thing 10 years ago, I didn't see to do it for a long time, I did fashion shows, I was invited for Cosmo again but I think I had my fun with it. I'm ready to take on more projects and challenging roles. This is a good place to hone my skills and learn. I'm grateful that this was given to me, I was never really picky but the one I like is the one with Ritz Azul since it was a little 007, a little hero role but something wearing formal suits in a funeral parlor last year. Can't wait for this to show next week!"
Wattpad Presents: Said I Loved You will be on TV5 weekdays at 9PM. Make sure you don't miss a day of it and watch it with thousands who have loved watching the show since the very beginning. You'll learn things in the process too. To Marvs and Edward, good luck with the show! :)
