DIREK MIKE RECALLS ALDUB'S FIRST MEETING. Samantala, nag-throwback naman ang direktor at film executive na si Mike Tuviera sa unang pagkikita noon nina Alden at Maine.
Ito ay ang September 5 episode ng Kalyeserye ng Eat Bulaga, kung saan nagkita na sa wakas sina Alden at Yaya Dub, pero hinarangan sila ng plywood.
Sa pamamagitan ng kanyang Twitter account (@DirekMike) ay ikinuwento ni Direk Mike kung ano ang naramdaman ni Alden sa unang pagkikita nila ni Maine.
When Alden saw Yaya Dub for the first time ever, at the backstage of Eat Bulaga before the "pader incident", he could barely see her face.— Michael Tuviera (@DirekMike) September 27, 2015
The lights were very bright and they were pointed at him, so Yaya Dub was hard to make out in the glare. Also, she was still very far.— Michael Tuviera (@DirekMike) September 27, 2015
He didn't know exactly what to do, so he decided to start walking towards her and did the Pabebe Wave. And then, on cam, he visibly smiled.— Michael Tuviera (@DirekMike) September 27, 2015
His smile was different. It was wide & he looked genuinely happy. When asked what he was smiling about when he couldn't even see her face...— Michael Tuviera (@DirekMike) September 27, 2015
He said... "Nakita ko kasi yung smile niya."— Michael Tuviera (@DirekMike) September 27, 2015
So he couldn't see her face from the lights, and she was still too far away, but he saw her smile. And that was enough. He smiled back.— Michael Tuviera (@DirekMike) September 27, 2015
