- Sarah Geronimo said she has no reason to display diva-like behavior
- She received praises from the cast and directors for being genuine on the set of Unforgettable
- She was also lauded for her acting in the film
Popstar Royalty Sarah Geronimo is set to lead the film Unforgettable with a dog named Milo as her co-star. Under the direction of Perci Intalan and Jun Lana, the film under Viva Films and The IdeaFirst Company will be showing on October 23.
Sarah, a self-professed dog lover, said that she had no problems working with Milo during their shooting.
“Hindi po ako nahirapan.
“Willing nga po akong mag-kissing scene kami ni Milo kaya lang strict yata si Kuya Tristan, yung parent niya, so, hindi natuloy. Hahaha!”she laughingly said during the mediacon of the film Unforgettable.
“Surprisingly, hindi rin siya nagkakaroon ng tantrums sa set. Very professional po siya na dog actor. Hahaha!”
Sarah was also thankful to the film’s directors for guiding her throughout her dramatic scenes.
“Masuwerte po ako kasi nandiyan silang dalawa talaga para umalalay sa akin, sa mg eksena po namin, especially pag may mga heavy scenes, talagang tulungan po sila ni Direk Perci at Direk Jun,” Sarah shared.
“And I also had yung acting coach na gumabay po talaga sa akin. Ever since Miss Granny meron po akong coach at yon yung kinapapalagayan ko po ng loob kasi talaga merong gumagabay sa akin kung tama ba yung ginagawa ko.
“Kailangan, eh. Ako po, for me, kasi I’m doing a film na ako po yung talagang nagdadala, so importante po na meron talagang gumagabay sa akin,” the singer-actress said.
Sarah was also happy for the praises she received from her co-star Ara Mina, who lauded her humility in an exclusive interview with PUSH. The popular singer-actress explained that she has no reason to put on airs.
“Wala po naman kasing rason talaga na magpa-diva. Actually, kahit sino naman, walang namang rason mag-diva-divahan,” giit niya.
“Meron ka lang rason kapag ka, halimbawa, may bagay na hindi ka kumportableng gawin. You just have to be honest, to be open about it, di ba? Hindi naman pagdi-diva yon, eh.
“You just have to be honest all the time, meron laging polite na way of speaking out, di ba po?” she explained.
Meanwhile, Direk Perci couldn’t help but praise Sarah for being genuine. “Ang dali! Sa hirap ng pinagdaanan niya, sa dami ng takes, sa bigat ng mga eksena, lalabas at lalabas ang totoong kulay. Mabait siya talaga, walang pagpapanggap. Totoong down to earth at concerned siya dun sa kapakanan ng mga katrabaho, lalo na kay Milo.”
Direk Jun also added during the media conference. “We knew that she was looking for a project na kakaiba, nasa point siya na gusto niya maging matapang sa choices niya kaya tamang-tama yung nagkita-kita kami.
Unforgettable follows Jasmine (Sarah) who takes her newfound pupper Happy (Milo) on a long journey to Baguio to see her ailing grandmother. The two will face different challenges and meet a diverse set of strangers along the way.
The film also stars Gina Pareño, Ara Mina, and Kim Molina, with the special participation of Tirso Cruz III, Cherie Gil, Regine Velasquez, and Marco Gumabao.
