Liza captures the heart of Enrique’s lola

Liza Soberano is happy to have finally met the family of rumored boyfriend Enrique Gil in Spain.

The young actress described Enrique’s grandmother as “animated” and “funny.” 

“’Yung lola ni Quen, sobrang animated siya. She’s just like Quen but 10 times more. For her age, she’s very hyper and she’s very funny. Walang dull moments. Hindi siya nauubusan ng kuwento,” she said.

According to Enrique, Liza won over his grandmother. “Sinasabi niya sa akin na she loves Liza so much. Very edukada, very well-brought up woman. Natuwa naman ako,” he related.

Also, he said introducing Liza to his family was a “huge step.” The two spent the holidays in Europe where they went to London and Paris. They returned to Manila last Sunday, January 7.

Vlogger Wil Dasovich is almost at the finish line in his fight against cancer. The YouTuber happily announced he is finally done with chemotherapy. He was diagnosed with Stage 3 colon cancer last year. A few months ago, the doctors also found something in Wil’s lungs, which are all cleared now.

“Yesterday I got my port removed from my chest which means I am officially done with chemotherapy and almost done with this whole process. My lungs were cleared from the last MRI and Pet scan which means there is no cancer there and it also seems it responded to the chemo well as there was nothing found in my lymph nodes. This is the best news I have received since the beginning when I got the diagnosis,” he announced on his channel.

Dasovich shared there is one more step before he can finally claim he is free of cancer but he remarked that the hardest part is already over.

“Thank you to all of you guys for being there and being my therapist, for letting me speak to you even though you don’t talk back, but you are doing the comments it makes me feel a whole lot better. We’re not done but we are at the fourth quarter and I can see the finish line,” he said in his latest vlog.

After winning the Metro Manila Film Festival Best Supporting Actor award for his portrayal of a loyal and gay best friend in Deadma Walking, Edgar Allan Guzman admitted he is still open to offers to do gay roles. “Depende sa darating pero hindi ako nagsasara ng pinto kasi siyempre blessing yan, opportunities yan. Kasi sa Deadma Walking all out na, sa pagiging malandi, sa pagiging maharot, all out ng isang bakla nabigay ko na. So para sa akin ito muna as of now pero hindi naman ako nagsasarado ng pinto,” he shared.

EA said there was no truth to the issue that he stole the limelight from his co-star Joross Gamboa in a lot of scenes in their film. “Walang sapawan na nangyari. Hindi kami nagsapawan kahit kaming dalawa hindi namin naramdaman yun while doing the film.

His role as a gay man was done so effortlessly onscreen EA admitted even his family started to question his sexuality. “Maraming nagtatanong kahit na sa pamilya ko na ‘Bakla ba talaga si Allan? Kasi feeling ko malapit na bibigay na yan,’ kasi Allan ako sa family ko. Ako naman pagka ganun mas nakakatuwa pa nga kasi di ba ibig sabihin effective? Sabi nga nila baka malapit na kami ni Joross (laughs). Si Joross naman sabi niya ginagawa siyang lalaki ng asawa niya sa gabi. Ako naman ‘yung mommy ko nagpapaalala sa akin na, ‘Lalake ka anak.’ (laughs),” he shared.

Having a real-life gay brother, EA gave credit to his sibling for helping him prepare for the role. “Actually nung binabasa ko pa lang yung script marami ng pumapasok sa utak ko, kung paano ko aatakihin, kung paano ko lalaruin ‘yung character. With my help of my brother na everyday ko nakakasama at nakikita. Kumbaga hindi ko siya tinatanong kung paano ‘yan, nakikita ko lang. Kumbaga nakakauha ako ng sample sa kanya. Tinatandaan ko lagi ang pagiging witty at pagiging maharot dinagdagan ko na lang ng konti depende sa hinihingi sa eksena sa character,” he explained.

Despite the notion it is a gay movie, he believes “Deadma Walking’s” central theme of friendship and family will appeal to all kinds of audiences. “Sabi ko nga hindi lang siya pang-beki kundi pang-lalaki din, pang-babae din, kahit anong gender puwedeng panuorin ng tao. Kahit ano naman makuha naming award, basta ang goal namin is kumita and maraming makapanuod ng pelikula,” he said.

This year, the talented actor already has a couple of things lined up. “May mga usapan na pelikula, after ang usap usapan. Tapos ang album ko hopefully malabas ko na siya this year and then after magtapos ang ‘My Korean Jagiya’ hopefully may nakaabang na teleserye kahit saan naman. Freelancer naman ako so everywhere puwede tumanggap ng teleserye. Pagpasok ng taon trabaho agad kaya mas masaya, positive lang,” he added.
