What if your “TOTGA” (the one that got away) comes back, but both of you are already married? That’s just what happens in the Kapuso network’s romantic drama series, “Love Before Sunrise.” It stars Bea Alonzo, Dennis Trillo, Sid Lucero and Andrea Torres.

In the series, which airs weeknights at 8:50 on GMA 7 and streams on Viu, Bea and Dennis portray ex-lovers whose paths cross again. Both are trapped in unhappy marriages, so they give in to their rekindled feelings.


Love is lovelier yet riskier the second time around for the forbidden lovers. It’s liaisons dangereuses à la Pinoy.


Here’s my chat with Andrea:

Would you give an ex a second chance?

When I put an end to a relationship, it has really ended. I don’t use the words “let’s break up” loosely. I tend to hold on and try to save what we have as much as I can so when I decide to let go, I know in my heart I have nothing more to give. I have closure and acceptance. But of course, all my exes hold a special place in my heart. The respect will always be there, and I look back at all my past relationships with happiness.

What’s your advice to those having an extramarital affair?

Every person deserves a chance to be loved well. Be honest with your partner and with yourself. It’s stressful for everyone involved, so it’s better to prevent it from happening.

Would you forgive your partner after he cheats on you? I have experienced this, so I can say that it’s not for me. It will always be at the back of my mind. Trust and respect are two very important factors for me in a relationship. It’s difficult for me to rebuild these once they have been lost. I want to love freely and I won’t be able to do so if I have these issues with my partner.

Do you think that couples in unhappy marriages should still stay together? It’s hard to answer this because I’m not yet married. Marriage is sacred. I know it’s not easy to make decisions once you’re in that commitment, so I’m careful to judge or give advice to anyone in this situation.

I guess you can try every possible way to fix things so you can honor your promise, but I do understand that there are times that the situation can become toxic. If you notice that you are deteriorating as a unit and as individuals, perhaps it’s better to part ways if that would mean a healthier interaction.


What kind of guy will make you want to fall in love again?

Someone who’s honest, has a thirst for life, is hungry for growth and has a deep relationship with the Lord.

Love merry-go-round

One love fits all would be an apt tagline for the movie, “Patikim-tikim” (PTT), which is now streaming on Vivamax (VM). Directed by Joey Reyes, it stars Yen Durano, Apple Dy, Chloe Jenna and Aerol Carmelo. Direk Joey’s surprise appearance in the film was lapped up by the audience at the press preview.

PTT is about a love merry-go-round that encompasses all genders. As the crazy pursuit goes on, which one will taste like love? Choose your flavor well. Here’s my chat with Direk Joey:

Can you tell us about PTT?

The movie talks about choices and how, at some time or another, one makes a decision to stop playing the field and focus on a calmer and more stable existence. Youth has its folly, an excuse to do whatever is needed to learn, but all this must come to a hopeful conclusion: finding someone whose soul fits your own.

What can you say about the potential of the stars of PTT?

It is so easy to prejudge VM talents by saying they are only as good as baring their bodies, but some are truly talented as they are intelligent and dedicated to improving their craft.

How do you bring out the best in newbies?

I love working with newbies because they have the least attitude and maximum enthusiasm. I let them know that acting is more than just looking good and that being an actor is so different from being a mere celebrity.

What prompted you to join the VM bandwagon?

I found it as an opportunity to do work which I cannot do for mainstream platforms. There were some “taas-kilay” reactions as to why I joined VM, but at this point in my life, I really do not give a flying f*ck about the way people judge me for what I do. What is important is that I am doing something I like and giving my people jobs that they need.
