John Prats and Heart Evangelista reunited in "Your Song"
No sparks flew and no old flame was rekindled when former lovers John Prats and Heart Evangelista played sweethearts once again for the episode "With You" of Your Song, ABS-CBN's weekly romance TV series.
But for his part, John admitted he had jitters having a romantic scene with Heart. This was revealed by John himself to PEP (Philippine Entertainment Portal) at the Valentine party-cum-press con of Your Song last January 26.
The young actor said, "Nu'ng nagte-taping kami, the day before nun, kinakabahan ako. Kasi it's been three or four years kaming hindi nagkikita ‘tsaka nagtatrabaho. Tapos nung nando'n kami, yung first take na kinunan ni Direk Andoy [Ranay, director of the TV series], yung last scene, which is yung romantic scene. So medyo kinabahan ako, paano kasi ang hahaba ng lines."
He added, "Then na-break naman ni Heart yung ice, kasi dun lang siya nag-start nag-joke. ‘Tapos sinabi niya, parang weird, ‘coz kami uli. Nagbibigayan kami uli ng linya', which is weird talaga."
John also said, "Pero after that, nung natapos na yung scene na ‘yon, hanggang matapos na yung taping namin, wala, okay naman. Talagang kwentuhan. Very light yung trabaho namin sa Your Song."
When asked if there's some kind of a wall between them, Heart answered, "Wala namang wall. But I guess, kasi we've been working before with each other for four years, so sobrang parang normal. Sanay na sanay na kami na pagka-‘action!' gano'n na. So okay naman, wala namang anything... Something there."
Were they sentimental during the taping? Did they talk about their past?
Heart said, "Actually, nung Homeboy, kasi hindi namin talaga napag-usapan until sinabi ni Tito Boy [Abunda] na parang ‘What did you miss with each other?' ganyan. Pero more of ano e... Kasi sobrang bata pa namin nun e. Immature yung pinag-aawayan namin, so nakakatawa lang ngayon. Parang nothing really to go sentimental na rin."
John added, "Nu'ng nagkwentuhan kami, wala lang, yung mga nangyayari sa Berks, nung taping namin, nami-miss namin yung barkada. Yun lang ang pinag-uusapan namin, wala naman yung, sabi nga ni Heart, ‘something sentimental.'"
Heart is very much involved now with actor Jericho Rosales while John is mum about his love life.
Incidentally, the episode "With You" is a song from MYMP. Your Song turns one year old this February.
