“It starts out as the typical Wattpad love story but it doesn’t end as the typical love story,” said Yassi Pressman about her current project with Viva titled Girlfriend for Hire.
The 19-year-old actress will have her first starring role with onscreen partner Andre Paras.
Their tandem was previously seen in the 2014 movie Diary ng Panget but back then, they played support to lead stars Nadine Lustre and James Reid.
Dubbed as a Viva Artists Agency princess, Yassi revealed that their scenes are very natural, “Basically it’s the same us, [ma]kulit, magulo, masaya, very young and fresh.
“It’s almost never scripted kapag sa aming dalawa.
“We’re just us, when we’re together.
It’s different also sa ibang mga Wattpad stories.
“Pero hindi ko pwede sabihin kung bakit, pero meron twist yung movie namin.”
They started filming Girlfriend for Hire last week. “Yes, we started shooting first day last Monday.
“We’re doing our second shoot on Saturday so it’s coming along.
“So we promise, we’re gonna try to finish it end of May.
“So sa akin sobrang perfect birthday gift yun lahat ng nangyayari ngayon kasi sa May 11, I’m turning twenty.”
She exclaims, “Oh no! I don’t want to leave my teenage years.”
Yassi also cleared the issue about her joining the cast of the Pangako Sa ‘Yo remake, which will be topbilled by Kathryn Bernardo and Daniel Padilla. There are rumors indicating that she will play the role of Bea Bianca Bejerrano or Electrika Powers.
She said, “I don’t know actually. I woke up a month ago trending.
“Kasi everyone is saying that I am part of Pangako Sa ‘Yo, there’s no confirmation yet.
“So I don’t know but I hope so."
