Marvin Agustin, Jolina Magdangal Do Love SceneMarvin Agustin and Jolina Magdangal, who shot to fame as a loveteam in 1990s, had to do a love scene for the first time in their comeback series on ABS-CBN, "Flor de Liza."
For Jolina, it was funny to know that they have to do more mature and serious stuff than before. They were both known for their teenybopper scenes. She was excited that their loveteam has already leveled up.
She became comfortable doing the love scene also because it is Marvin she will be doing it with. She trusts him, Jolina said.
This is no problem to her husband, band member Mark Escueta, who Jolina said is a Jolina-Marvin fan. He knows this is just part of the story, and he is aware that she can do so much more if she has the freedom to.
Although this is the first time for Jolina and Marvin to do a love scene together, this should not be the reason for viewers to watch the series. They want them to get hooked on the story because it's a really good one, she added.
This is also not the basis for her maturity as an actress. For her, this just symbolizes her first time to do a story that will portray her as a mother, and the first for her and Marvin to do a heavy drama. They used to do romantic-comedies during the 1990s.
This series is not such a surprise for the actress, who already knew that someday, she and Marvin will work together again. The industry is a small world, after all.
What she did not expect was how they are going to be accepted by the public. She said that their magic lies on the fact that they did not end up together.
During their time, it was common for loveteams to fall in love with each other. Some of their contemporaries were Claudine Barretto and the late Rico Yan, as well as Judy Ann Santos and Wowie de Guzman.
However, Jolina and Marvin remained friends throughout the years. Their friendship is so deep, in fact, that they can look at the past fondly. They never pretended that they are together, and that made them real to the public.
