Viva Soon Launches New Love Team Of Julian Trono And Ella Cruz With A New Movie And A New TV Show

VIVA ARTISTS AGENCY is launching its newest love team, Julianella, with the teen dance team of Julian Trono and Ella Cruz. Dubbed as the Teen Dance Prince and Princess because of their series of dance video hits that went viral, Viva is now preparing their launching film, tentatively titled “Fanboy/Fangirl”. There’s also a TV series based on a Wattpad hit book series that they will do, “Break the Casanova’s Heart”, aimed for release in the 3rd quarter of 2017.

Viva exec Veronique del Rosario says: “We first saw their potential individually and now, as a pair. They are both very talented, hardworking, and we believe they have a bright future ahead of them.”

How was their tandem formed? “Dati na kaming magkakilala then napunta siya sa GMA-7 at ako, sa ABS,” says Ella. “Then nagkita kami sa Viva, who’s managing us now. I asked him to be a guest in my music video and he also asked me to be a guest sa kanyang music video.”

“Doon nagsimula, nakita ng Viva ang chemistry namin at pinagtambal kami,” says Julian. “Nakatulong na may nabuo na kaming friendship and now, mas lumalim yun. Nag-compliment yung aming mutual passion for dancing.”

Viva has released their solo singles, “Tamis” and “Balang Araw”, both chart toppers, and their first duet, “Tumalon”, is also a big hit. Their first collaboration video, “Versace on the Floor”, has gained over 3 million views. What qualities do they like the most in each other?

“I really admire that she values her family so much,” says Julian. “We both care for our parents and seek their guidance. Magulo si Ella, maingay, kaya masarap kasama. Totoo siya, very thoughtful and very appreciative.”

“Ako rin, I admire yung pagiging family-oriented niya,” says Ella. “And I admire his creativeness kasi nahahawa ako. Kami mismo, we contribute sa choreography ng aming dance numbers. We have our own ideas and I appreciate it na he believes in my talent, he motivates me and pushes me that I can do better.”

Do they see themselves falling seriously in love with each other in the future? “I think it’s too early to go into that,” says Julian. “We want to take advantage muna of all the good opportunities that Viva is giving us.”

“Opo nga, masyado pang maaga. Friends na lang muna kami,” says Ella.

But do they at least think that each of them will be good boyfriend or girlfriend material? They both answer “Yes”.
