It was a touching goodbye for Eula Caballero and David Archuleta at the set of TV5 mini-series Nandito Ako.
Eula relayed to PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal), “What I appreciate most was the depth of his character.”
“It started with light conversations. ‘How are you, have you slept well?’
“‘Then we started talking about family… then you find out the kind of person he is.
“I also asked him about his mission.”
Eula was referring to David’s two-year mission with The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.
The young Kapatid actress continued, “He said, ‘I’m happy to do this for my religion.’ [He said] It makes him whole.”
“He also said, ‘It’s just making me sad because I’m afraid that everyone might move on with their lives without me.’
“And that we should get used to not having him around since two years is a long time.”
“Especially for his sisters, one of his sister is turning sixteen, the other one will join junior high, he said, ‘I wish I could be there with them when that happens.’
“I said, ‘Oh, my God!’”
“I was in tears when he said that coz he, too, got teary-eyed.”
Eula added, “He has such a deep personality, he has so much on his mind… his family.”
“‘He said he has one more month before he goes on his mission and he wanted to spend it in Philippines since he has come to love the country.
“I said, ‘Yeah, of course! We would be happy.’”
“I also told him, ‘TV5 would love that you can do guestings in other shows.’
“‘He said, ‘I’d love to but I just want to spend it with my family in Utah.’”
Eula said she will miss David.
“So much!” she added.
“Then on our first night in Batangas, he again got teary eyed and said, ‘I’m gonna miss this, guys.’”
“‘We’ve been like taping every day, we’re filming every day and we’re together every day, we’ve been together lunch break and dinner break and all that.’
“‘He said, ‘I’m gonna miss this because I know you guys have other projects to do after this…’ and he said eventually our attention will be diverted to other things.
“He continued, ‘But me, I’m just gonna miss this and I hope I can see you guys again.’
”I said, ‘Oh David, you’ll be very missed by us.”
