What makes Janella and Jameson feel So Connected?
Kapamilya stars Janella Salvador and Jameson Blake team up for the first time in an upcoming Regal Entertainment date movie titled So Connected.
The romantic comedy tells the story of two people who get connected because of a stolen phone. With an app that tracks his phones contents, Karter (Jameson) discovers that Trisha (Janella) has his phone.
Not knowing that the gadget is synced to Karter’s computer, Trisha stores photos and pictures on the mobile device that Karter can access. And having a glimpse of her life through pictures and videos, Karter becomes infatuated with her.
Eventually, he goes on a mission to find Trisha through the clues from the videos and photos. When their paths finally cross, Trisha feels she ridiculously has a lot of things in common with Karter that she immediately feels that they are so connected.
Although they had to adjust on the thought that they would be working with a different onscreen partner, both actors admitted that they had an instant connection the first time they met on the set.
“He’s very nice, actually. I have no problem working with him at all because sobrang light lang ng aura niya, sobrang good vibes lang, and he’s fun to work with,” Janella told the press during the movie’s media launch.
“There was an adjustment of course but after a few projects with the same leading man, di ako sanay na bago, pero it’s always nice to try something new. I think it’s good growth din as an actress,” she stated.
Jameson, on the other hand, explained that he has always been vocal in his past interviews that Janella is her dream leading lady.
“Before, people would always ask me, ‘If you would work with a leading lady, who would you choose?’ I’m like, ‘Maybe Janella, I think maybe we’d be a good match for a movie.’
“I’m like, ‘Someday baka may movie kami ni Janella. Maybe it would come true.’ I actually dreamt about it,” the Hashtags member recounted.
The budding actor also pointed out why So Connected is a huge milestone in his showbiz.
“This is my biggest role in a mainstreat movie so far. Kasi nag-indie [movie] ako before, so it’s like a big step in my life. Also, it's really special for me because I always wanted to work with Janella,” he said with excitement.
Though it is their first team-up, Jameson is happy to hear that the staff and crew of the production team is optimismic that his onscreen partnership with Janella shows a lot of potential.
“They believe that we could actually pull off the movie. It’s a great experience,” he said.
Joining Jameson and Janella in the film are Ruby Rodriguez, Rolando Inocencio, Cherise Castro, Krystal Brimner, Paulo Angeles, VJ Mendoza, Chai Fonacier, and Rafael Sudayan. The rom-com is directed by Jason Paul Laxamana. It will hit the local screens beginning May 23.
