Agnes yearns for simpler days though as Paolo grows distant and ultimately makes the choice between pursuing his dreams and preserving their relationship.It is heart wrenching but through it all, the docile Agnes maintains her impenetrable idealism that leads to her growth and maturity.
HEIDEE: THE CONFIDENT ONE
Need an antidote to the bitter heart? In Won’t Last A Day Without You (2011),DJ Heidee (Sarah Geronimo) is the resident heartbreak DJ of a top-rating radio program. She is confident and outspoken—having personally experienced being cheated on, she cautions all those who seek her advice on air.
“’Di bale nang bitter if bitter is better!”, she tells her listeners. In the process of getting playboy Andrew Escalona (Gerald Anderson)back together with his girlfriend, Andrew and Heidee form an unlikely bond, bickering and poking fun at each other.
Inevitably, they begin to feel an attraction towards each other. With a realist outlook in life, coupled with her bubbly personality, Heidee proves that overcoming heartbreak can bring one to love again.
ANJ: THE AMBITIOUS ONE
Will you choose career over love? How To Be Yours (2016) poses this question and introduces us to Anj (Bea Alonzo), a self-trained cook who dreams of establishing herself in the restaurant world, and Niño (Gerald Anderson), a sales agent on a stable path. With similar principles on life and aspirations, they start a seemingly ideal relationship but eventually form differences in priorities.
As Anj consumes herself with work and achieves rapid success, Niño attempts to stay supportive while struggling to keep his own career afloat, causing a major rift between them.
In the end, Anj proves in modern times, one may have to struggle but at the end, one doesn’t have to choose. Her passion drives her ambition but love is what drives her passion in life.
SAM: THE ADVENTUROUS ONE
In Can We Still Be Friends (2017) Sam (Arci Munoz) and Diego (Gerald Anderson) have been together for almost eight years. Sam is adventurous and fun-loving and Diego is chill and happy-go-lucky—a match made in heaven!
