Diego Loyzaga and Frank Russell Teams Up For The First Time in "Pabuya"

At war with a rival gang, chased by the police, and dependent on a woman for his escape.  That’s the situation Diego Loyzaga finds himself in as he portrays the role of a gang leader named Pepe in “Pabuya”, a Vivamax original movie that’s coming out this October.  

Franki Russel plays Bella, whom Pepe runs to after killing an undercover cop.  Bella is sweet and loving, and because of their history, Pepe puts his trust in her.  But this trust is shaken when the police issued a reward for his capture.

This movie is a first for Franki, who had appeared in the phenomenal TV series “Ang Probinsyano” after being a housemate in Pinoy Big Brother in 2019.  Last October, this Filipino-New Zealander beauty also achieved another “first” as she was the first to represent the Philippines in the first-ever Miss Universe pageant in United Arab Emirates.  

Her team-up with Diego Loyzaga is quite interesting since, just like their characters, the two of them seemed to have a romantic involvement in the not so distant past.  

Directed by Philip Giordano (Pusoy), “Pabuya” includes a supporting cast that Vivamax viewers will surely be familiar with.  Jela Cuenca (Taya, 5in1, Boy Bastos, Palitan, Isalnd of Desire, Silip sa Apoy) plays Maricar, the seductive but selfish ex-girlfriend of Pepe. Felix Roco (‘Wag Mong Agawin ang Akin, Kaliwaan) plays Jojo, the leader of the rival gang. Jiad Arroyo (Doblado, Adan, High on Sex, Kitty K-7) plays Victor dela Cruz, the lead detective who has a shady side to him.
