During the surprise announcement last month, Bernardo was asked about what she thought of her new co-star: “Kung tatanungin ninyo ako kung kinakabahan ako, yes super! Pero it’s a good thing. Nae-excite ako kung anong mangyayari dito, kung paano kaming dalawa. Hindi ko talaga alam kung anong mararamdaman pero for sure I’m very happy. …Ang laking adjustment nito hindi lang para sa akin, kung hindi para na rin kay Alden.”
While Richards explained that he treat this chance to do a movie with Bernardo as a rare opportunity and a way to challenge himself: “It’s a great honor and experience kasi I’m really in that stage of exploring the craft and my capability as an actor,” he said. “To be directed by someone who made that film, sobrang fan po kasi ko nung John Lloyd [Cruz] and Bea [Alonzo], parang total package na po — wala na po akong hihilingin, sobrang saya ko po na nabigyan ako ng chance.”
Directed by Cathy Garcia Molina, Bernardo and Richard’s first acting project started rolling its cameras this week. There’s no target release date yet.
