Pancho Magno Happy To Work Together With His New Bride, Max Collins, In GMA-7's Hit Primetime RomCom, 'The One That Got Away'

PANCHO MAGNO has just finished his last regular afternoon soap, “Haplos”, and he now joins the cast of the primetime romantic comedy, “The One That Got Away”. He will be working with his own new bride, Max Collins, who plays Darcy, the sexy fitness instructor in the story.

Max would think that Pancho is Wes, her secret admirer. What she doesn’t know is that Wes is just a fabrication of her own gay best friend, Bunny (Nar Cabico), who keeps sending romantic messages to her as Wes. It so happened that Pancho fits exactly the way that Wes is described in Bunny’s text messages. And when Max sees Pancho talking to a sexy girl, she confronts him angrily and calls him a two-timer. Imagine her embarassment and surprise when she finds out that she made a big booboo.

This is the first time that Max and Pancho are working together in a teleserye since they got married so their fans are thrilled to see them acting side by side on screen. So how is the experience?

“Siempre, comfortable na kami agad sa isa’t isa,” says Max. “At least, may kasabay na akong umalis at umuwi ng bahay. I feel so secure on and off the set. Daig ko pang may personal bodyguard.”

“Actually, nagkasama na kami noon sa isang episode ng ‘Daig Kayo ng Lola Ko’, but iba itong nightly teleserye,” says Pancho. “Ang prayer ko lang, maging mahaba naman sana ang role ko nang tumagal pa ang pagsasama namin dito.”

There are two more new additions to TOTGA. First is Solenn Heussaff, one of the sexy girls who’ll be a threat to Lovi Poe, Rhian Ramos and Max Collins in their quest to get Dennis Trillo Back. The other one is Devon Seron, a PBB discovery who’s in the batch of James Reid in 2010. She has decided to say goodbye to ABS-CBN and move to GMA Network and she says she’s very happy to now be a Kapuso. TOTGA’s cast and crew are currently rejoicing because their “Finding Nemo” episode to be a real winner at the ratings and easily clobbered its rival.
