In their almost twenty two years of marriage, actors Christopher Roxas and Gladys Reyes still look back at their past lives, romantic and otherwise and make a little fun if not learn a lot of things from the experiences.
All the more that they throwback, the more they cherish their relationship.
Just like when husband and wife embarked on a leisurely trip to Lobo, Batangas to relive some memorable things and acts they did during their youths.
One of them was Gladys wearing one of her valued souvenirs of a dress she wore during her stint at ABS-CBN’s daytime TV drama “Mara Clara”, where she played Clara opposite or an antithesis to Judy Ann Santos’ Mara.
Until this moment, Gladys hasn’t thrown away the blue-green dress as a living memory of her landmark performance as a young villainess in the TV show—an image she has nurtured and worn all these years although it’s only onscreen because she is the complete reversal of a character in real life.
Just an aside. Reyes started her showbiz career in the late 1980s as a child star and as a regular performer, one of the so-called Little Star Brighters in the still missing popular entertainment writer, talent manager, publicist and TV host Boy C. de Guia’s “Star Brighters,” a former component of the pre-“TV Patrol” programming “Cinema Scoop” in 1989 which was later transferred to Channel 4’s “Star Brighters,” that time already a full-fledged TV show.
The rest is history.
Now, Gladys and Christopher have four grown-up children who they also tag along in their hideaways like their recent trip to Lobo but only the parents were in the public eye particularly in social media.
In a fun shoot, Christopher acted as the instamatic photographer to her model wife Gladys who posed with such playfulness at the rocks of Batangas.
“My ever supportive husband/photographer I am wearing this dress that I had since 90's in Mara Clara. Kaya ata, mukhang na-in love na naman lalo sakin (he seemed to be so much in love with me again),” said the actress in her Facebook pages.
The couple was with their friend and “ate” (older sis by affinity), Anna Reyes Matillano, the owner of Anna’s Ocean View Place.
According to Gladys, they were on the beach not only to reminisce the good old days but also to deepen their relationship, friendly and otherwise.
The gang had a field day dancing like Zumba players. “Aside from swimming and intimate bonding, it's also fun to dance by the beach,” exclaimed Gladys.
