ABS-CBN’s sought-after love team Maymay Entrata and Edward Barber will team up for an episode of the longest running drama anthology on television Maalaala Mo Kaya this coming Saturday, November 23. Maymay and Edward will portray the love story of Maxine Blanco and Gab Sta. Ana. Maybe, some of you have heard the inspiring story of this young couple as it had been circulating online and went viral just a few months ago. Gab shared their story through a Facebook post describing his girlfriend as his “one great love.” Their inspiring love story encountered struggles when his girlfriend Max, a law student was diagnosed with stage 4 bone cancer moved the hearts of many, including Maymay and Edward.
According to Maymay, when she watched the Rated K episode, where Max and Gab’s love story was first featured on television, she felt heartbroken and it encouraged her to “live life to the Max”, the official hashtag of the viral story. The actress also pointed out that Max is an incredible fighter with a positive attitude despite her condition, making it a not so typical story of a cancer patient to watch. Meanwhile, Edward took a workshop with Gab Sta. Ana since it is Edward’s first time to deal with a heavy drama episode in MMK. He said that it is different when you portray a character that is alive and real, especially on how that person he has interpreted moves based on his character portrayal.
It is an honor for Maymay and Edward to portray such inspiring characters.
The trailer for the MMK episode of Gab and Max’s love Story was released last Saturday. MayWard fans including the supporters, followers, and family of Max and Gab are so excited to watch the said episode. Another reason to love MayWard over and over again!
