Julian Trono and Ella Cruz are each known for their dance covers on YouTube which are currently garnering millions of views. Ella’s biggest video hit is her version of Fifth Harmony’s “Work It” which has reached the 6 million mark. For Julian, his “Fetty Dance Craze” has more than 4 million views. Their first collaboration video, “Versace on the Floor,” which was released last February, has garnered over 3 million views.
But aside from dancing, these young talents are recording artists, too! Ella’s single “Tamis” and Julian’s “Balang Araw” did very well in various music charts right after being released by Viva Records.
But it was when Julian appeared on Ella’s music video for “Tamis” last year that the two started to grab everyone’s attention. Their body language created such chemistry that prompted Viva to launch them as a dancing love team with the moniker “JulianElla.” And since January while fronting for the mall shows of several OPM artists, the tandem started to draw huge crowds of shrieking young fans which eventually grew as a fan base. Recently, they unleashed their first duet “Tumalon” which sealed their career as the new love team on the block.
And now the time has come. Julian and Ella are slated to star in a movie and an upcoming TV series, not as support to other love teams, but as the lead stars themselves!
In fact, the Viva Artists Agency talents have started pre-production work on their launching movie with the working title “Fanboy/Fangirl.” In this lighthearted romance-comedy, Julian will take on the role of a wannabe actor and Ella will portray a Korenovela dubber who will help Julian’s character improve his acting skills in order to land the breaks he has been chasing after. The movie promises to be a feel-good youth pop piece in the mold of “Diary Ng Panget,” the blockbuster from Ella and Julian’s home studio, Viva Films.
Speaking of “Diary Ng Panget” which was adapted from a Wattpad hit, Ella and Julian’s other major project is a TV series based on another Wattpad-hit-turned-bestselling-book-series, “Break The Cassanova’s Heart.” The weekly series will air on network TV in the third quarter of the year.
“We’re so blessed with all these opportunities,” says Julian. “Sunod-sunod ang mga projects. We’re super thankful to Viva.” Ella shares the sentiments and adds that they are both very excited and nervous at the same time. “Nakaka-tense din. Big challenge for me and Julian to prove ourselves. For sure we’ll give our all para hindi kami mapahiya sa mga fans and supporters namin.”
