Diether Ocampo and Maja Salvador at 24/7 In Love
Can a "commitment phobe" change his perspective on love?
Like the other artists involved in Star Cinema's offering in celebration of the 20th anniversary of Star Magic, "24/7 In Love", both Diether Ocampo and Maja Salvador were pleasantly surprised when they were asked to join the star-studded ensemble. "It's quite big I mean it took 20 years to put all of us together in one big project and for me it's something, na putting a seal, seal na Star Magic, na ito well established and well respected management company," Diether said. "Sobrang ano, ako kasali? Yung talagang kinukwestiyon ko talaga kasi kasali ako. Di ba ang laking project ng 24/7 and para isali ka sa ganitong project, talagang nagtitiwala sila sayo," Maja also shared.
Diether described his and Maja's episode in the movie as started to be very light then it became kind of hard. Diet plays the role of Ken, a successful businessman who has a lot of personal issues. His views on love will be changed when Maja, who plays the role of his employee Barbara, helps him figure out how a baby ended up in his hotel room and whether he is the father of the child. "My character goes through so many things, a lot are happening simultaneously then her character sobrang kulit, like can you stop please because I need to do something, not knowing that she will be then one to provide the answer na matagal na niyang hindi naiintindihan."
Maja on the other hand, refers to her character Barbara as "manang" and a hopeless romantic. "Ako yung magsasabi sa kanya (Ken) na kailangan buksan ang puso mo para mas maraming magagandang mangyari sayo. Sa totoong buhay kapag pinili mo na maging malungkot forever kang magiging malungkot, pero onve na binuksan mo talaga yung puso mo at pinili mong sumaya kahit hindi happiness sa relationship ha, parang kung pipiliien mo lang yung happiness para sa sarili mo, sa pagkatao mo, yung lahat susunod yun eh. So ganun yung character ko".
And as Ken and Barbara wait for the DNA results on the baby, will the outcome bring about a new beginning for the two of them? Or wil it pull them back again to the pains of their past?
Diet and Maja's episode is directed by John D Lazatin, Don't miss 24/7 In Love coming in theaters this November 21.
