Mango Picks: The Best Love Teams

by Roy Cagalingan

February is a month filled with chocolates, cards, passionate songs, and other romantic stuff. Since we are still on the love-month, here is Mango’s picks for the best love teams.

Judy Ann Santos and Wowie De Guzman

Judy Ann Santos was already an up and coming child actress when she was paired with Wowie De Guzman, a member of the Universal Motion Dancers. The pair first appeared in the landmark television series Mara Clara (1998). The series had an amazing run of five years that led to Mara Clara the Movie in 1996.

Gabby Concepcion and Sharon Cuneta

Gabby and Sharon went from being reel partners to real life lovers. Their first movie Dear Heart (1981) was a prelude to the other 10 hit movies that they will make together.

Bea Alonzo and John Lloyd Cruz

Of recent years, this love team remains one of the more popular and endearing to the masses because of their effortless chemistry. Now That I Have You, Close To You, and All About Love are some of their blockbuster films alongside their equally successful television shows.

Pancho Magalona and Tita Duran

An early and highly popular on-screen and real-life tandem, they appeared in hit movies like Bulaklak na Walang Pangalan, Always (Kay Ganda Mo), and Sa Isang Sulyap Mo Tita. Their marriage blessed them with nine children, among them, the late great musician Francis “Kiko” Magalona.

Guy and Pip ( Nora Aunor and Tirso Cruz III)

There was something different and beautiful at the same time when the dusky Nora Aunor was paired with Tirso Cruz III, a mestizo. They first appeared in The Musical Teenage Idol (1969). The couple was also known for their “daughter”, a doll named Maria Leonora Theresa.
