Still No confirmation, but Marco and Heaven �more than friends� now
The couple, who got paired last year in the top-rating series, ‘The Rain in España,’ has yet to admit the real score between them. However, some fans naturally got worried when they heard the announcement that they were no longer together. But the loveteam immediately reversed the announcement and said it was April Fools.

MANILA, Philippines — Last April 1, word got around that young loveteam Marco Gallo and Heaven Peralejo, popularly called MarVen, are no longer together.

The couple, who got paired last year in the top-rating series, “The Rain in España,” has yet to admit the real score between them. However, some fans naturally got worried when they heard the announcement.

The loveteam immediately reversed the announcement and said it was April Fools. Good joke.

“It was just us,” shared Heaven. “We were in the middle of shooting at that time. We just realized that we might hurt some fans, so we denied it right away. There was no guilt on our part because we revealed the truth right away.”

Marco added, “The original plan was to keep the announcement at bay for at least two days. But we just realized that some people might feel bad. So we told them it was April Fools.”

Marco and Heaven will be seen next in the ‘Uni Love Squad’ (short for ‘University Love Squad’) on Viva One. They will be joined by KrisshRome (Krissha Viaje and Jerome Ponce), as well as HyGab (Hyacinth Callado and Gab Pangilinan).

Whatever status the relationship of Marco and Heaven is in right now, the pair wants to keep it private, although everybody sees something special between the two.

“Whatever we post on social media, that’s for everybody,” Heaven said. “But the status itself, whatever we’re into right now, I’d rather keep it to ourselves. That’s my take.”

Who would have thought that the former “Pinoy Big Brother” teen housemates would end up as a breakout loveteam, which would have successful projects both on TV and also on the big screen?

After being paired in “The Rain in España,” the bestselling Wattpad novel created by Gwy Saludes that was turned into a widely-followed series on Viva One last year, a new loveteam was created with the instant popularity of the leads.

Although they were both introduced in “Pinoy Big Brother Lucky Season 7” in 2016, Marco and Heaven were never paired then.

When the young stars first started taping for “The Rain in España,” they were not initially a loveteam. The success of the pilot episode came out really surprising even for Marco and Heaven, that they were readily tagged as MarVen — a combination of their first names.

“At first, we always start as friends,” explained Marco. “But then, if you keep on working together every day, that interests the fans. Before you know it, you’re falling for your loveteam partner. You can’t help it and you just dive into it.

“And then, ‘Boom!’ How do you explain falling in love? Boom! You always just wish for a happy ending. Heaven and I are more than friends now.

“Even if we do well on our own projects, especially Heaven, everyone can tell she is doing well in her projects and I’m super proud of it. But I love it when we work together because there are no adjustments needed.

“We know each other so well. We definitely know when we need each other. When we need to do certain scenes together on the scene, she knows where and what to tap.”

Heaven described Marco as her “safety blanket” after appearing together on the streaming platform Viva One for more than a year. They were also seen in the second book-turned-series, “Safe Skies Archer.”

Heaven happily noted that their fans support their loveteam.

“One of the perks of being in a loveteam, your partner knows how you move and your attitude,” Heaven maintained. “Eventually, I know I’m going to have a project of my own and the same goes for Marco.

“Hopefully, fans of our loveteam will still continue to support us and our respective careers. If he will be paired with other artists, I will accept that. If I will become a solo artist again, I will not mind.

“Our weakness is probably when we both have topak at ayaw naming patalo sa isa’t isa. Nangyayari ‘yun. But nagagawan namin ng paraan. We talk to each other well after being so makulit.”

Marco and Heaven will be seen next in the “Uni Love Squad” (short for “University Love Squad”) on Viva One. They will be joined by KrisshRome (Krissha Viaje and Jerome Ponce), as well as HyGab (Hyacinth Callado and Gab Pangilinan).

Apparently, the fans saw the ideal screen chemistry in Marco and Heaven. “Our chemistry just comes out naturally,” Heaven said. “We bring out the best in each other. We gained this trust and respect for each other. That was a good foundation for a partnership, a better friendship.”

Marco and Heaven are aware there will come a time when Viva Artists Agency will tell them they need to go their separate ways for the meantime. They will also welcome it and will be ready for the realization.

“I think for the two of us, that’s okay,” Heaven admitted. “Before we even became a loveteam and whatever it is that we are sharing now, we really started as good friends. So the foundation of our team, whatever happens in real life, we are here for each other.”
