Watching Kelvin Miranda and Mikee Quintos in ‘The Lost Recipe’ was like seeing the tandem we never knew we wanted. Because out of nowhere, young actors that haven’t worked together yet clicked in a special project that made the pandemic experience a little lighter and a little better.
But what did they think of each other prior meeting personally? I asked the two which show or movie did they saw the other for the first time and what were their thoughts:
Kelvin: “Actually, Encantadia nakikita ko siya sa TV, hindi pa ako ganoon ka-active sa TV nu’n. ‘Yung acting niya, parang maniniwala ka na bata-bata niya, inosente ang acting, ‘yung performance niya which is nakakagalak. It’s good, magaling siya. Hindi ko talaga inaasahan na magkakatrabaho kami.”
Mikee: “First project na napanood ko si Kelvin is ‘yung Dead Kids. Even before that naman, naririnig ko na ‘yung name niya kasi same manager kami. Tapos ‘nung napanood ko ‘yung Dead Kids nakita ko ‘yung mata niya sa eksena and ‘yung unang impression ko, ‘Ay! Malalim ‘tong taong ‘to, no doubt.’ Hindi madali ‘yung ginawa niya eh. Nagtrabaho siya para sa eksena na ‘yun. Hindi niya made-deliver ‘yung ganung klaseng performance kung hindi siya malalim. It’s just not possible. Kita mo eh, kita mo na tinrabaho niya. Kahit a few seconds lang siya, ‘yung emosyon na ‘yun, dun mo mako-confirm na marami ‘yung pinagdaanan bago niya mabigay ‘yung ganung klaseng emosyon ng ilang segundo. And na-excite ako maka-trabaho ‘yung ganun.”
And because of ‘The Lost Recipe’ Kelvin and Mikee formed more than just a love team in a hit fantasy romance series, but also a partnership that produced a song.
‘Two of a Kind,’ perhaps this describes Kelvin and Mikee as who they are: two, completely different people who the industry found to be surprisingly good together for a project made something some may call magic.
