It was not just Kathryn Bernardo who got a surprise visitor during the Hello, Love, Goodbye shoot in Hong Kong. Maymay Entrata revealed to the press that her MayWard partner Edward Barber also slipped into the neighbor country to visit the young actress.
Although the visit was supposed to be a surprise, Maymay admitted that she already knew Edward was coming.
“Hindi marunong magtago si Dodong eh,” Maymay said.
But she said she requested him this: “‘Pero, please huwag tayo mag-post ng kahit ano. Kung mag-post man tayo, nakauwi ka na.’ Kasi, ayoko po na makisali pa tas madami na namang [magsasabi] ...’Ahh! Pumunta rin siya!’ Ayoko.”
Maymay admittedly missed the Fil-Brit actor during her long stay in Hong Kong for the lock-in movie shoot, but explains that it was not the first time they have been separated overseas.
“Kapag lagi niyo pong kasama ‘yong tao, ‘di ba nami-miss niyo naman?” Maymay answered. “Naranasan ko naman po ‘yong siya ‘yong pumunta sa ibang bansa. Sa First Love, kay sir Aga Muhlach po. Hindi na po bago sa amin.”
When asked if she is ready to be paired with a different actor just like what Hello, Love, Goodbye lead Kathryn Bernardo did with Alden Richards, Maymay said she is still comfortable having Edward as her on-screen partner.
“Siguro po ngayon kasi nasanay pa ko na komportable ako kay Dodong,” she said. “Hindi pa natin alam po hanggat nandoon po tayo. So, depende.”
Before leaving the press, Maymay was also asked about her opinion on fans clamoring for the MayWard tandem to confirm their rumored relationship, but said it was not her priority as of the moment.
“Ang masasabi ko po sa kanila ay maraming salamat sa suporta,” she said. “Alam ni Dodong kung ano ‘yong mga priority ko ngayon at alam niya ‘yong priority ko ay ‘yong family ko, ‘yong trabaho ko tapos sa tamang panahon. Promise ko sa inyo, hindi ako nagsisinungaling!”
