Earlier this year, ABS-CBN announced that the power love team of MayWard will be starring in its first full-length TV series Heart To Heart. Maymay Entrata and Edward Barber recently worked together in the weekend TV series Hiwaga ng Kambat, which they won as Love Team of the Year at the VP Choice Awards 2019.
In the recent interview with PUSH.com, it was revealed that the filming of their upcoming TV series has been postponed. Maymay said that the show, which requires some scenes to be shot in Japan, had to halt filming due to COVID-19 travel restrictions.
“Ngayon po kasi inayos ‘yung script namin kasi nga ‘yung nangyari sa coronavirus na laging safety first. Lalo na ‘yung flights ngayon. Dahil nga po ‘yung location na target namin is Japan,” Maymay revealed.
Mayward is more than ready
Despite the postponement, Maymay said she is more than ready to take on her new role in the said show. “Kasi kami ni Edward sobrang masasabi namin na handa na kami at sobrang excited na kami.”
On the other hand, Edward said there’s no need to rush things, adding they’ll do whatever it takes to give their fans what they deserve. “So let’s just see what happens. Pray for it. I’m sure things will be fine. But it’s just a little bit of a pause muna. Re-evaluate. Kasi it’s not something to rush,” he added.
“For me, I wanna do more work. Pero of course, we’ll do everything that we can to help it push through. And give everyone what we’ve said they’re getting,” he emphasized.
There is no further details regarding the resumption of their production. For the mean time, MayWard is busy with their acting workshops and Japanese lessons in preparation for their TV series.
“Sa ngayon po talaga mas masasabi namin na focused kami ngayon sa proyektong binigay sa’min. ‘Yun po ‘yung serye namin na “Heart To Heart.” At hanggang ngayon naman patuloy pa rin naman po kami nag-woworkshop tsaka Japanese lessons. Though na-cancel po ‘yung first taping day namin. Kasi ang pagkakaalam nila first taping namin is ‘yung Friday. Na-cancel po dahil nga sa revision,” Maymay shared.
“Dahil din sa characterization. Para sigurado lahat. Para maayos lahat. Kesa magbabago-bago. So ‘yun. I think it’s close. Pero tingnan na lang po natin,” Edward added.
Asked if the series will still push through with its slated 2020 release, Edward answered: “99 percent.”
