Some days ago, actor Gabby Eigenmann shared collated photos of him along with Superstar Nora Aunor where he noted how fulfilling it was to make the latter chuckled up.

And during a recent interview, Gabby talked about this rare moment with La Aunor.

Gabby recalled that during the story conference of their TV series “Bilangin Ang Bituin Sa Langit,” he was among those excited to work with the seasoned singer-actress.

Gabby remembered he did a cameo in one of her projects. But he noted that they’ve known each other for so long because Nora’s children Matet and Ian were in  his circle of friends.

“So nu’ng mag-e-eksena na kami. I was really looking forward to it because while reading the last 10 scripts, ‘yun lang ang ka-isa-isang eksena namin together sa buong istorya,” he revealed. “So it was… I was looking forward sa opportunity na sana’y may at least isa, dalawa, o tatlo.”

“So nu’ng nagkita kami sa set sabi ko kay Mama Guy: ‘Mama Guy, sa 10 scripts na pinadala sa’kin, itong eksenang lang ‘to ang binasa ko.’ So she started laughing. So siya naman she returned the favor also, saying, ‘Alam mo kinakabahan ako kasi ka eksena kita. Nanlalamig ang kamay ko.’ So nag bobolahan na kami. So kaya kami tawa ng tawa,” he added.

On Dec. 7, GMA Network will bring back the well-loved TV adaptation of the 1989 award-winning blockbuster movie “Bilangin Ang Bituin Sa Langit” by Regal Films on the Afternoon Prime Block.
