Joshua Dionisio and Barbie Forteza joins the parade of stars

CHRISTMAS WILL be truly happy this year for Joshua Dionisio and Barbie Forteza. Their love team boomed this year with such shows as “First Time”, “Pilyang Kerubin” and the current hit, “Tween Hearts” that’s extended until April 2011. “And now, we even have our first movie together, ‘Si Agimat at si Enteng Kabisote’,” says Joshua. “We both feel so lucky kasi kasama naman sina Sen. Bong Revilla at Bossing Vic Sotto, tapos entry pa sa Metro-Manila filmfest kaya masaya talaga Pasko namin.”

What are their roles? “I play Jason, a teenager in Engkantasia na idol si Bossing Vic. I want to be his sidekick so sumama ako sa kanya sa real world. Doon ko nakilala si Barbie, who plays Bratty, niece ni Bossing Vic who’s a spoiled brat, at nagkagusto ako sa kanya. Since I come from the fairy world, I have special powers and I try to impress her with some magic tricks. First movie namin ito together and we're thrilled to ride the movie's float sa filmfest Parade of Stars.”

Barbie used to live with her grandma in Binan, Laguna, but she was able to buy her own condo unit in Quezon City this year with her parents. “Lagi kasi kong nale-late sa tapings ko in Manila so we got our own place here. But on Christmas Day, we’re all going home to Binan for our family reunion.”

What is her Christmas gift for Joshua? “I’m buying him a bike, which is what he wants. Combined birthday gift na yun kasi he’s turning 16 on December 14. Isang regalo na lang para tipid.”What about Joshua’s gift to Barbie? “Secret muna. Para may surprise, basta I’m sure she’ll like it.”
