Meeting ‘The Write One’: Ruru Madrid And Bianca Umali’s Shift From Real To Reel
A lot of on-screen tandems end up having off-screen relationships. But it is the exact opposite for Kapuso couple Ruru Madrid and Bianca Umali, who found themselves on the other side of the spectrum.

Ruru and Bianca sit very close to one another, with their hands intertwined like it’s second nature. When I ask questions, they briefly look each other in the eye, smile, and continue or finish each other’s sentences—something, I find out, that comes naturally to them, as well.

They reveal how they never had any plans to actually work together throughout their four-year off-cam relationship.

“At first, never namin napag-usapan na gusto namin magka-work, as in ayaw namin,” shares Ruru.

Bianca adds, “We never look forward to it, kasi siguro we really want na separate iyong work and iyong relationship.” Ruru also stresses, “Kami ang pahinga ng bawat isa. We never talk about work.”

Then, The Write One—which came along thanks to Garlic Garcia, the content development manager of content service provider Viu—happened. It was Garcia who invited Bianca to a karaoke session.

“She invited us to an event,” Bianca recalls. “And I brought Ru as my plus one, and then, sakto, she told us that she wanted us to be together in a show, and she doesn’t see the point of us doing separate shows na hindi kami magkasama.” (READ FULL FEATURE HERE!)
