Dear Heart (1981)- The movie that started it all

Sharon Cuneta was only 15 and Gabby Concepcion, 18, when both made their first movie together. The movie, Dear Heart, started their reel and real love story. It made a killing in the box-office in 1981 and significantly paved the way for more Sharon-Gabby screen tandems. The love team proved to be a winning combination and eventually secured the movie careers of the two young teen stars. In a span of 11 years, from 1981 to 1992, the two made a total of 10 movies together. The screen romance, welcomed by fans, turned real as Sharon and Gabby were wed on September 23, 1984 at the Manila Cathedral with then President Ferdinand Marcos as one of the principal sponsors. They were blessed with a wonderful baby girl, Maria Kristina Cassandra Concepcion, or popularly known as KC Concepcion (now 23). Their marriage though was short-lived. “I was 21 and she was 18. We were both young then. And you know when you’re young, you’re vulnerable to failure," says Gabby in a published article.

It’s a very turbulent relationship especially on the part of Sharon. Their experiences, pains and trials however, made them strong and tougher individuals. Gabby figured in the 1994 filmfest 'envelope switching' scandal, went to the United States for a self-imposed exile. He returned after 13 long years primarily for his dear father who was suffering and struggling with serious illness. He resumed his acting career with a teleserye on ABS-CBN, Iisa Pa Lamang. Sharon, on the other hand, is now happily married with Senator Francis ‘Kiko’ Pangilinan.

Both have already put their differences behind them. Gabby is looking forward to the day that he and Sharon will be able to work together on a movie project again.
