Vhong Navarro and Teresita Ssen “Winwyn” Marquez are thankful for the chance to work with artists from rival networks in acting projects, such as in the movies.
Vhong, who is a Kapamilya artist, and Winwyn, who is a Kapuso star, act opposite each other in Unli Life, the upcoming movie by Regal Entertainment, Inc.
While artists from rival networks are often pitted against each other, Vhong says it is not always about rivalry among celebrities.
“Kasi nagkikita-kita naman kami, e, halimbawa sa mall or kung may iba-ibang party ng mga kaibigan,” explains the It’s Showtime host in an interview with PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) and other bloggers.
However, in most cases, their network affiliation prohibits them from working with each other.
That is why Vhong is happy that some film outfits bring these stars together for a project.
“Kumbaga ang ginagawa ng Regal kasi, ang ganda, kasi napagsasama yung iba-ibang [artists from different] stations.
“Kasi hindi naman tayo magkakalaban. We’re friends. Wala naman talaga [rivalry].
“Kumbaga may kanya-kanya lang istasyon, pero ang ginagawa ng mga istasyon is nagpapasaya ng mga tao. Gano’n naman. Parehas ang pag-iisip nila.
“Kaya lang hindi lang nagkakaroon ng time kasi nga meron exclusive sa ganito, sa ganyan.
“Kaya eto yung happy kami dahil nagkakatrabaho kami,” said Vhong about working with fellow artists from different networks.
For her part, Winwyn says apart from working with artists from other networks, she is thankful to learn from them.
The beauty-queen-actress described her experience with working with Kapamilya stars, “Alam mo, it’s very different, e. Ang gandang opportunity.
“Hindi lang ako nasa isang area. At least, sa films, nakakasama kong maka-work yung ibang network artists and it’s nice kasi I also learn from them.”
Unli Life also stars Joey Marquez, Jon Lucas, Alex Calleja, Donna Cariaga, Kamille Filoteo with the special participation of Dimples Romana, Joem Bascon, Epi Quizon, and Jhong Hilario.
Directed by Mike Livelo, this comedy film is an official entry to the 2018 Pista ng Pelikulang Pilipino film festival.
