More than a decade after their tandem’s debut in Katorse, actors Enchong Dee and Erich Gonzales prove are still in the race for most effective reel loveteams in showbiz, with their lockdown-born series You.Me.Maybe — a 10-part digital series produced by Erich herself.
Concentrating on uplifting moods amid the pandemic, EnRich went with a light-hearted love story on Gian and Gianna. The story might have perky vibes, but it also tackles both the deep and mundane experiences of couples who go through various uncertainties.
With this vision in mind, the two huddled with Through Night and Day’s writer Noreen Capili and took multiple roles beyond acting.
Enchong revealed during his recent guesting in a Kapamilya chat that they almost quit as early as the second day of filming. But seeing the Enrich Originals YouTube channel gaining traction, the two persevered and crafted the series with love.
Staying in reel
The two call each other “Mylabs” and often share photos of themselves getting cozy. For the actress’ birthday yesterday, 20 September, Enchong shared their sweet black and white photo with the caption, “I will celebrate life extra today because of you.”
Tracing this much-awaited comeback, EnRich took social media by storm with a reunion photo of their wine night last June. Their fans might have been stoked for a real relationship because of the post but realizing that the two are only getting back to collaborate for a series still satisfies the parched fans.
With all these good as real stunts, EnRich are susceptible to be linked together for real, but the two have managed to stay within reel as they remain best friends.
This might be the true secret of on-screen partners to last — staying in reel. Remember John Lloyd and Bea Alonzo’s digital comeback years after A Second Chance that shook the country’s entertainment industry last April?
This might be EnRich’s peg to keep the friendship and sustain screen chemistry for their respective careers.
