Singer Darren Espanto surprised his grandmother when he brought her to see the movie “The Hows of Us” without mentioning that he’s part of the cast.

In a Twitter status, he shared that his grandmother jokingly slapped him several times because of pure elation.

Some of his fans and followers immediately found the scenario “cute” and “sweet.”

Espanto plays Yohan Silva, Kathryn Bernardo’s brother.

The movie tells the story of Primo (Daniel Padilla) and George (Kathryn Bernardo) as they progress through a long-term relationship after college and tackle its triumphs and difficulties.

First acting experience 

According to Espanto, playing the character of Yohan is his first movie role ever. He revealed in an interview, “First movie, I had a lot of fun, maraming memorable experience po talaga.”

He further mentioned that he did not go to an acting workshop prior to bagging the role. “Hindi po ako nakapag-workshop. Diretso na po ako sa Amsterdam. And then dito po ako nag-shoot after,” he said.

He also recalled how his first acting experience felt like. “Nung first two days medyo nahirapan po ako, pero after that po, parang nasabi ko na I could have given more the first few days kasi mas parang alam ko na nung third day kung ano ang gagawin ko.”

“Kung ano yung gusto po ni Direk Cathy. Bago ako sumalang, kinausap naman po ako ni Direk Cathy na, ‘Dapat handa kang masaktan yung ego mo,'” Espanto shared.

The actor previously expressed his excitement over his inclusion in the movie on Instagram.

“I can finally announce that I’m part of the upcoming movie, ‘The How’s Of Us’! Ako po ang magiging kapatid ni Ate Kathryn!” he shared. He considers Kathryn his showbiz crush.

“The Hows of Us” has been trending on social media since its release in cinemas last August 29. It has earned P36 million on its first day of showing.
