Working with Karla Estrada, Melai Cantiveros and Jolina Magdangal in the movie “Momshies: Ang Soul Mo’y Akin” was a warm and welcoming experience for Thou Reyes.
Reyes said that working with Estrada, in particular, was like working with her son, actor Daniel Padilla. He finally understood how Padilla is a good person after he got to working with Estrada, with whom Padilla takes after. He also enjoyed listening to her stories.
The movie meanwhile marks his reunion with Magdangal who he previously worked with in the hit 1990s youth-oriented show “Ang TV.”
“Siya ang isa sa mga una kong ate sa industriya, sa ‘Ang TV.’ It’s like a reunion project sa aming dalawa. For the longest time ay hindi kami nagkasama. Palagi lang kaming nagkakasalubong sa hallway or ‘pag nagge-guest ako sa ‘Magandang Buhay,’” he said of Jolens.
(She is one of my first sisters in the industry, in “Ang TV.” It’s like a reunion project for us two. For the longest time, we were not table to work together. We would just see each other at the hallway or when I guest on “Magandang Buhay.”)
He complemented Magdangal’s looks as well by pointing out that she has not aged a bit.
“Sabi ko nga, iba pa rin ‘yung training namin sa “Ang TV” kasi in a snap ay nabababalik lahat ng pinag-aralan namin, ‘yung [work ethic] namin. You can really see it kay Ate Jolens,” he added.
(As I said, our training in “Ang TV” is really different, because in a snap, we can recall what we studied, our work ethic. You can really see it with sister Jolens.)
As for Cantiveros, Reyes believes they have great chemistry.
“Ang ganda ng team-up namin dalawa. Hindi kayo madi-disappoint guys. Puwede kaming gumawa ng sitcom ni Melai,” he proudly declared.
Overall, working with the three momshies amid these hard times is a blessing, said Reyes.
“Momshies! Ang Soul Mo’y Akin” will stream on May 28 in streaming platforms KTX.ph, iWant TFC, TFC IPTV, Sky Cable PPV and Cignal PPV. JB
