After two decades since their last movie together, Robin Padilla and Vina Morales are reunited this Saturday (November 12) in a special ‘Maalaala Mo Kaya’ (MMK) episode as part of the drama anthology’s 20th anniversary celebration. The said MMK episode is Robin and Vina’s first team-up on the small screen, making it more memorable for the two Kapamilya stars.
This week’s episode will feature the life story of an inmate of the New Bilibid Prison named Willie, played by Robin, who spent most of his life outside prison running away from the authorities; and what he and his wife, played by Vina, had to went through while he was running away from the authorities.
In an interview, both Robin and Vina admitted excitement over their MMK project. Robin shared, “MMK is known for featuring real heartwarming stories of real people, that’s why it’s an honor for me to do an episode that carries a quality story with an amazing cast and high-caliber director.”
Vina, on the other hand, shared, “It’s been a while since we’ve done a project together and fans have been waiting for something like this to happen. I’m happy that even after a long time and now that we’re living our separate lives, we still have that on-screen chemistry that our fans loved.”
Unlike their films which are mostly action-packed, Robin and Vina’s MMK episode is a family drama.
Meanwhile, despite admitting that he personally requested for Vina to be his partner, Robin stressed that they worked on the episode as professional actors. “I wanted to work with Vina because I believe that the character fits her. Unlike before that I have to be really in-love with her to show that I love her on-screen, now the intensity of acting is different. I rely on my own emotions in the dramatic scenes.”
