Monique Coleman and Corbin Bleu recently reunited for the Lifetime movie A Christmas Dance Reunion, nearly 13 years after they starred together in the popular Disney franchise High School Musical.
Ahead of the release of the movie, the former opened up to People about losing a pregnancy right before filming the project. The actress also spoke about receiving immense emotional support from her co-star Corbin Bleu and his wife, Sasha Clements:
"I thought that I was going to be doing the movie pregnant. If I was pregnant, I was excited to be with Corbin and Sasha because I knew that they would be able to carry me and hold me through that experience. And when I wasn't, they were also able to be there for me in a way that I can't even really describe."
The actress also mentioned that Corbin and Sasha stood by her side and helped her get through the difficult time:
"They sent a photo and a prayer and told me that they were thinking of me. We were in quarantine in our respective rooms, but to be able to talk to them about that and to bond with them in this really difficult time where I'm alone in a room by myself, but not to feel alone, was just so special."
Monique Coleman and Corbin Bleu were among the most-loved onscreen couples during their High School Musical days. Although the duo were never romantically linked in real life, they have been best friends for more than two decades.
While Corbin tied the knot with Sasha in 2016, Monique married Walter Jordan that same year. Meanwhile, Corbin and Monique continued to remain friends and supported each other through the highs and lows of their respective lives.
