  • Fresh from the success of their first ever soap You’re My Home, rising tandem Jessy Mendiola and JC de Vera are giving more “kilig” vibes this time in Wansapanataym Presents: Just Got Laki.

    JC and Jessy happily welcomed the opportunity to work on something the young ones and the young-at-heart through the award-winning fantasy-drama anthology show.

    “Siyempre different ‘yung pagiging light, siyempre may romantic side siya. Siyempre may ligawan and mga things na very different from You’re My Home kasi nga ‘yun heavy drama ito very light lang. May konting kilig and light romance,” JC said.

    “It’s something different from what we usually do and siyempre given our personal life,” said Jessy.

    JC points out that their newest project is a welcome deviation from their already established and accepted roles.

    “Mas wider lang ‘yung range na makikita. Siyempre hindi lang sa isang angle na heavy drama and comedy like sa Banana Sundae. Very far from sexy very far from the different genres that we are used to,” he said.

    JC takes the role of Macky, a young boy who transformed into an adult overnight after munching on a magic candy. Jessy, meanwhile, will be taking on the role of Sophia, the gracious daughter of the candy store owner where Macky’s mother played by Angel Aquino happens to work.

    The show’s romance angle will center on Macky’s longstanding admiration of Sophia, which transcended even though he transformed into an adult.

    Instead of getting “too mechanical” with their acting, Jessy shared that their approach was “not to prepare for” the show in order to make their performances and approach as natural as possible.

    Meanwhile, still overwhelmed by the amount of support that they are getting from their followers, Jessy and JC are hoping for the best for their Wansapanataym episode.

    “Habang ginagawa namin ito parang sinasabi namin ‘Sana ‘yung next natin light lang, light lang,” said Jessy.

    The first of six episodes earned 26.8 ratings last Sunday. Watch more “kilig” episodes of JC and Jessy in Wansapanataym Presents: Just Got Laki on Sundays directed by Jojo Saguin and Allan Chanliongco. (I.V Red, MS)
