A sparkling moment transpired as the vibrant cast of Tawa-tawa Island, featuring Drew Arellano, Carlo Aquino, Andrea Brillantes, Cai Cortez, and Justine Luzares, joined forces with industry luminaries Quark Henares, Head of Originals at Prime Video Philippines, Tanya Yuson, Entertainment Producer, and Director Randolph Longjas. This engaging encounter occurred during an exclusive press conference, hosted for the upcoming comedy sensation “Comedy Island Philippines.” The venue was none other than the Teatrino at Greenhills’ Promenade Mall.
Regrettably, Rufa Mae Quinto, Jerald Napoles, and Awra Briguela couldn’t grace the occasion due to their pre-existing commitments.

At the heart of the press conference, the ensemble commenced with introductions coupled with memorable quotes. In a candid exchange, they unveiled their personal obstacles, insights, and unforgettable moments during the exhilarating one-month shoot in Thailand.
Drew Arellano’s better half, Iya Villania, graced the occasion with their adorable kids and added a heartwarming touch to the event.
