“Mahirap talaga, hirap na hirap talaga ako. Nakaka-drain,” she revealed.

Interviewed by entertainment site PEP.ph, she also confessed that she felt anxious over her rape scene in the series.

“Actually bago talaga kunan ‘yun, iyon ‘yung palagi kong iniisip araw-araw, kung, ‘Kukunan na ba ito, kukunan na ba ito?’” she said.

She added she wanted to play her role excellently. She said, “Kasi kinakabahan po talaga ako du’n eh. Tsaka gusto ko din sana magampanan ng maganda dahil ‘di ba, madami talagang nakaka-experience nu’n sa totoong buhay?”

She also admitted she was slightly traumatized with the rape scene where she played the victim.

“So gusto ko bigyan ng hustisya kasi siyempre hindi biro yung mangyari sa iyo ‘yun eh. So, medyo na-trauma talaga ako dun sa rape scene,” she fessed up.

What makes her project more difficult is because she has had a scene where she needed to roll over the precipice.
“Sa pagod ko nakatulog na ako sa bangin, actually,” she revealed while laughing.

“Kasi ano po ‘yun, parang… ‘yung calltime namin 1 A.M., so siyempre halos hindi ka na makatulog the night before dahil gigising ka ng 12 midnight para magpunta sa taping.

“Tapos ‘yung kinunan namin ‘yung gumulong ako sa bangin, tapos, basta ‘yung huli po siyempre may mga nakadiskubre na sa akin na mga tao, so paggising ko tapos na pala yung eksena,” she added.

In addition, the episode where her character started to get blind has been challenging her acting skills.

“Ang hirap nga po! Sobrang hirap. Minsan… ‘yung eksena ni Lauren [Young] na ‘yung nasa harap kami ng kabaong tapos nag-aaway kami, yung nagagalit siya, minsan ‘pag sobrang bigat ng eksena na kailangan mong umiyak. Nu’ng una, talagang nag-a-adjust pa ako na bulag pala ako dito.

“So nung eksena na ‘yun, since super-bigat, ang iniisip ko lang talaga, ‘yung emotions, na nakalimutan ko na bulag ako!

“Parang na-realize ko, halfway na to the scene na, ‘Ay, bulag nga pala ako!’

“So gumanyan-ganyan ako, kumapa-kapa para pambawi.

“Kasi ang hirap po talaga mag-adjust na siyempre ‘pag umaarte ka ginagamit mo yung mata mo?

“Tapos nakakatulong din ‘pag tinitingnan mo sa mata yung kaeksena mo? So, malaking-malaking adjustment po talaga para sa akin,” she ended.



The series “Legally Blind” was directed by Ricky Davao and is part of GMA Afternoon Prime. Kapuso actor Mikael Daez is Gutierrez’s leading man and it premiered on February 20.
