According to Sef, it is a big help that they are guided by the team that has been working behind “Pepito Manaloto” for around 11 years already.
“Sobrang swerte po namin kasi masaya po silang katrabaho. Lahat ng tulong na pwede nilang ma-contribute binibigay po nila sa amin ni Mikee at sa lahat ng actors and actresses ng Pepito Manaloto,” said Sef.
Sef, meanwhile, expressed ‘kilig’ while describing his working relationship with Mikee.
“Mahilig po ako sa comedy pero pagdating sa love…” Sef expressed as he continued by just giggling.
“I’m so happy na si Mikee ang kasama ko at kami ang nagpo-portray ng Pepito at Elsa,” he added.
He stressed that “madali at masarap umarte kasama si Mikee.”
Mikee, on the other hand, echoed Sef as she is also thankful for the guidance of the “Pepito Manaloto” team.
She said she hardly had hart time portraying Elsa. She added that the guidance is always there even when it comes to small details like the simple gesture of Elsa that she is trying to imitate.
“Kahit ganitong kaliit na bagay sobrang laki ng difference. Malaking tulong,” said Mikee.
