Marco Gumabao talked about his friendship with Julia Barretto
Marco and Julia is now the new onscreen partner in a TV5 series. They have been friends for a long time and the actor shared that he met the actress when they were just kids.
Based on the article in PEP, during a recent interview, Marco recalled when he attended a Barretto party when he was seven years old. His father, Dennis Roldan, is a good friend of Julia’s aunt, Gretchen Barretto.
“I remember meeting Julia at that time. I think she was four, batang-bata pa talaga. Simula pagkabata, nakilala ko na siya. But naging close kami nang maging same ang handler namin sa Star Magic,” Marco Gumabao shared.
As friends, they are hanging out together along with their other friends. The actor shared that their favorite beach getaway is Siargao. He said that he and Julia have been talking to spend a vacation there once again because last 2019 their getaway ended not so well. “Twice na kami nakapunta sa Siargao. First time was birthday niya. Second time, umuwi siya nang maaga. Mga two days lang siya doon. That was the time na yung lolo niya passed away, so she had to go earlier,” Marco shared.
It was a sad trip for them, and they want to make new good memories. “Kumbaga, gusto naming bawiin so we want to do it again,” the actor said.
Meanwhile, Marco Gumabao admitted that it has been an open secret that he had a crush on Julia Barretto. However, he did not pursue her because he values their friendship more.
The actor said that he was afraid of losing a friend and so he set aside the romantic feelings he had back then. Marco said that he is now happy for the love life of Julia who is now in a relationship with Gerald Anderson.
