Ejay Falcon (rightmost) did not feel awkward shooting intimate scenes with Ellen Adarna. “Hindi siya maarte so siya lang ‘yong artistang parang never akong nailang sa mga eksena."

Meanwhile, Joseph Marco (leftmost) said that he's happy to be Coleen Garcia's leading man. “’Di ba ito ‘yong parang first major teleserye niya and she’s very willing to learn stuff so I’m happy na siya yung naging p



Ejay Falcon and Joseph Marco will essay more daring roles in ABS-CBN's upcoming teleserye Pasion De Amor.

In an exclusive interview with PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) last May 3 at the Star Magic Games 2015, Ejay and Joseph disclosed their roles in this series dealing with revenge.

Along with Jake Cuenca, the hunk actors will portray siblings who are bent on exacting revenge on a rival family.

In a teaser released earlier this month, it showed that the three brothers are angry over the death of their sister. As a result, they vow to make three daughters of a rival family—played by Arci Muñoz, Ellen Adarna and Coleen Garcia—fall in love with them.

Joseph explained, “’Yong Pasion kasi, it’s a story about three brothers. So ako ‘yong pinaka bunso sa magkakapatid, pinaka kuya si Jake Cuenca, sunod si Ejay Falcon.”

Scheduled to air this May, this upcoming teleserye veers away from other TV projects for its steamy content.

Ejay added, “’Yong line-up ng teleserye kasi sa ABS, masasabi ko ito ang pinaka-kakaiba.

"As in iba siya sa lahat ng teleseryeng mapapanood mo, ang Pasion De Amor. Parang lahat, nando’n eh.

“’Di ba ‘pag teleserye, drama lang, pa-kilig lang, or pambata. Ito kasi lahat nando’n.”

Joseph said they enjoyed working together on the set.

“Kapag may mga taping kami, may mga eskena kami, talagang parang naglalaro lang kami.

“You know, kapag gusto mo ‘yong mga ka-trabaho mo, enjoy kayo.”


LEADING LADIES. In the series, Ejay will be paired with sexy star Ellen Adarna while Joseph will have It’s Showtime host Coleen Garcia as his leading lady.

Pasion De Amor is a remake of the Colombian telenovela that aired in ABS-CBN’s afternoon block in 2004. The remake also stars Arci Mu�oz, Michelle Madrigal, Teresa Loyzaga, Ingrid dela Paz and Ronaldo Valdez.

Ejay shared that he did not have problems shooting daring scenes with Ellen.

“Si Ellen kasi game siya, walang arte kasi ‘pag sinabing parang kissing scene, kissing scene gagawin namin.

“Hindi siya maarte so siya lang ‘yong artistang parang never akong nailang sa mga eksena.

“So parang hindi ako naghe-hestitate na gawin ‘yong eksena kasi alam kong okay siya, okay lang sa kanya."

Meanwhile, Joseph remarked that he and Coleen have started building on their chemistry since this is the first time they worked together in a series.

“Alam mo, nakakatuwa siya kasi at first 'di ko ina-akalang kalog siya, e.

“Parang no’ng una, ‘pag di mo siya ka-close, may wall siya, e. Pero ngayon, sobrang komportable na niya.

“Nakikipag-lokohan. Bully pala siya in real life. Okay siya, okay pala siya katrabaho.”

“’Di ba ito ‘yong parang first major teleserye niya and she’s very willing to learn stuff so I’m happy na siya yung naging partner ko dito.”

Aside from Coleen, Joseph also had the chance to do steamy scenes with comebacking sexy actress Aubrey Miles.

How was Joseph’s experience working with her?

“No’ng una parang siyempre worried ako na parang, ‘Oh no, that’s Aubrey Miles.’ Siyempre we all know that she’s Aubrey Miles.

“Medyo natakot ako at first, pero no’ng unang unang araw namin [ng taping], ‘di niya pina-feel sa 'kin na, alam mo ‘yon, na Aubrey Miles siya.

“Ang bait-bait niya. She’s very willing na pagandahin ‘yong eksena, sobrang cooperative.”


WORKING WITH ERIC QUIZON. Joseph also shared that he enjoys working with their director, Eric Quizon.

This is the first teleserye of Eric as a director after going back to ABS-CBN in 2014.

“He’s so cool. He’s such a cool director. Hindi mo ma-fe-feel na director siya kasi sa sobrang humble niya and sobrang bait niya.”

On the other hand, Ejay said that working for this new show is like a breath of fresh air for him because it is very different from his last show, Dugong Buhay, which aired in 2013.

“Sa Dugong Buhay, action action. Nagto-topless pero [iba] pa rin.

“Ito, first time ginawa ko ‘to. Lahat first time kong ginawa dito.

“Para sa akin, bagong genre parang first time kong ni-launch ulit. Parang ka-ka-launch lang sa ‘kin ulit kasi lahat bago.”



EJAY ON HIS MMK EPISODE. Two weeks ago, Ejay starred in a Maalaala Mo Kaya episode where in portrayed a SAF commando who was part of the Fallen 44. This MMK episode also featured Coco Martin and Angel Locsin.

What can he say about the response given by people to this episode?

“Sabi ko nga [noon], ginawa namin yung MMK hindi para sa ratings.

“Gusto ko mapanood siya ng mga tao para maging inspirasyon ‘yong mga bayani natin. Gusto ko mapanood talaga siya ng maraming tao kasi para sa kanila talaga ‘yon pag napanood nila.”

“Actually ang daming nag-text sa ‘kin kagabi [after the airing ng episode], kahit sila Tita Mariolle [Alberto of Star Magic], umiyak din sila and ‘yon naman ang importante na nakita nila [yung] side ng mga kapulisan.

“Kasi hindi naman lahat ng pulis…kasi tayo ‘yong iba kasi may mga na-experience sa mga pulis na kino-kotongan, niloloko sila ng pulis.

“Hindi lahat ng pulis [gano’n], [May mga] nagbubuwis din ng buhay para sa atin. I mean yung nangyari sa SAF.”
