During Nora Aunor‘s 60th birthday celebration at the Meralco Multi-Purpose Hall in Ortigas on Tuesday, May 21, TV5 made an announcement that surprised the guest and media. TV5 Business Unite Head JoAnn Banaga and director Joel Lamangan officially revealed that the sensational “Guy and Pip” love team in the 70s is making a comeback!
The Superstar will be reunited with her first love, Tirso Cruz III, in the upcoming romantic tele-movie on TV5 titled “When I Fall In Love.” Other cast-members of the said project include Marvin Agustin, Nadine Samonte, Karel Marquez, and Akihiro Blanco.
It can be recalled that the Guy and Pip love team started in the box office hit “The Musical Teenage Idol” in 1969. Their tandem was unusual because for the first time, a morena (Nora) was paired with a mestizo (Tirso), breaking stereotypes in movie casting at that time. And the unusual became phenomenal as other films/projects of Nora and Tirso have drawn millions of fans longing to see them. Even Maria Leonora Theresa, the doll given by Pip to Guy, was a sensation.
This year, after more than 2 decades, the phenomenal love team of all time is set to make a comeback. This rare project will be made possible by TV5 not only for the Noranians but also for the showbiz industry in general.
