New Talents And Discoveries Support Kiray Celis And Enchong Dee In Regal's "I Love You To Death"

A BEVY OF new discoveries is supporting the tandem of Kiray Celis and Enchong Dee in Regal’s horror-comedy, “I Love You to Death”. One of them is Paolo Gumabao, one of the two sons of former actor Dennis Roldan who are currently trying their luck in showbiz. He’s being managed by Manny Valera. The other one is Marco Gumabao, who’s older and was last seen as Dawn Zulueta’s son in “Love Me Tomorrow”. Paolo and Marco have different mothers.

“I Love You to Death” is Paolo’s second movie after the Metro filmfest hit last December, “Haunted Mansion”, where he was the school bully who became the first victim of the ghost who haunted him and his classmates. He has also finished another movie, “That Thing Called Tanga Na”, for Director Joel Lamangan.

His Kuya Marco got involved in a sex video scandal. How about him? “Ay, sigurado ako, wala akong ganun. Kung may lalabas na ganun, hindi ako yun at inedit lang nila. I’m sure ganun din ang nangyari sa kapatid ko. Hindi rin siya yun.”

Also in “I Love You to Death” as one of the mean girls who harasses Kiray is Trina Legaspi. As a child star, she’s better known as Hopia. She was a mainstay in “Goin’ Bulilit” for many years, where she played mother roles and got to spoof Kris Aquino. Kathryn Bernardo and Julia Montes are her batchmates, along with Kiray herself.

She left showbiz for a while as she focused on her college studies. She’s now a degree holder after getting a communication arts diploma from Miriam College. Now 21 years old, she wants to be known as Trina Legaspi and wants to play more mature roles. She has previously appeared in the gay-themed film, “Pare, Mahal Mo Raw Ako”, as the best friend of Edgar Allan Guzman.

The other new stars supporting Kiray and Enchong are Devon Seron, Michelle Vito, Christian Bables, Jon Lucas, Shine Kuk, Dino Pastrano and Nico Nicolas, under the direction of another newcomer, Miko Livelo.
