Yassi cool about not being cast with Coco

JUST A THOUGHT: “Forty is the old age of youth; fifty is the youth of old age.” – Victor Hugo

NOT A LOVETEAM: They’re not a loveteam, so it is with no regret that Yassi Pressman welcomes Coco Martin’s decision to cast another actress in his new film, Ang Panday.

People had expected that the Coco-Yassi partnership, forged following months of working together as a couple in FPJ’s AngProbinsyano, would graduate to the big screen via said movie currently under production.

At the media launch of Nivea Deodorant held recently at Novotel in Cubao, the young actress said she fully understands the film production’s decision not to cast her in the part of Coco’s love interest. ‘They must have their reasons, and I fully support their move,’ she said.

ACTORS’ DAUGHTER: Coco’s leading lady in the new edition of Panday for the big screen is Mariel de Leon, 2017 Bb. Pilipinas International and daughter to actors Christopher de Leon and Sandy Andolong.

Yassi wished Mariel and the film itself good luck.

She said her non-inclusion in Ang Panday has not and won’t affect her professional relationship with Coco, whom she described as a kind man.

Yassi is the first local endorser of international brand Nivea Deo Serum, available in different sizes, formats, and variants. She said the product gives her much needed confidence especially during hot, sweaty days.
