Megastar Sharon Cuneta has revealed her friend Jackie Lou Blanco is in the cast of her upcoming film with Kapuso actor Alden Richards, as she shares behind-the-scenes snaps from ‘A Mother & Son’s Story’.
Over the past few days, the veteran actress-singer has been uploading photos from their film set to her Instagram page, and on Thursday she shared snaps with Richards and Blanco, confirming the latter’s addition to the cast.
In the caption of her post, Cuneta said, “Yes, kasama din namin si Jackie!!!! (Yes, Jackie is joining us too!) [heart emojis].”
The ‘Unexpectedly Yours’ star will later share more behind-the-scenes photos, including those from a scene with Blanco and ‘Love You Stranger’ actor Tonton Gutierrez. The three had previously worked together in “Kung Aagawin Mo ang Lahat sa Akin”, where Cuneta and Blanco played the role of sisters. In fact, Blanco’s first film, “My Only Love,” starred Cuneta and Gabby Concepcion.
Blanco, on his Instagram Stories, shared one of Cuneta’s posts, adding a moving graphic that reads “HAPPINESS.”
Before the start of filming, which began on June 20— an exchange between Blanco and the film’s director, Nuel Naval in the comments section of one of Naval’s Instagram posts might have alluded to Blanco’s casting. In Naval’s response to Blanco’s congratulatory comment, he told the actress, “Finally I’ll see you again [heart emoji].”
“A Mother & Son’s Story” will mark the first time Cuneta and Richards will appear together on the big screen. Besides Blanco and Gutierrez, the Megastar previously revealed that “Missed Connections” star Miles Ocampo will also be in the film. /ra
