However, just recently, the 20-year-old actress has been paired to Fil-American actor Jameson Blake in a film “So Connected”.

Marlo told PEP that Janella isn’t the one who makes the decisions, especially when it comes to choosing who she would be paired with.

The Star Magic talent said that he doesn’t know why the young actress is being paired up with different guys. However, according to Marlo, he wishes Janella the best, and he is going to support regardless of who her on-screen partner is.

The 25-year-old actor said that he just wants the “So Connected” star to be successful.

When asked whether it’s okay for him to be paired with Janella again, the actor responded that it is definitely fine with him because aside from the fact that they have been close before, he also badly needs more work for his mom who’s sick.

Marlo also mentioned that he also miss working with the young lady. He even revealed that he actually liked Janella but she was way too young when they were paired.

During that time, the beautiful actress was just around 15 or 16, and that is probably the reason why he did not court her, according to Marlo, although the actor also told Janella that he had a crush on her.
