With the return of the hit afternoon teleserye, Magkaagaw, actress Sheryl Cruz and actor Jeric Gonzales shared how they prepare for their intimate scenes.
Cruz shared that the creators made her aware of their roles even before the pandemic hit. It helped her mentally in preparation for the characters.
“From the very beginning, we weren’t forced to do anything that was against our will. From the very beginning, when we started Magkaagaw, bago pa ko pa tinanggap, or inoohan yung role na Veron Santos. Nasabi na sa akin kung ano yung mga kakailanganin kong gawin. And kasama dun yung mga intimate na scenes.”
During the locked-in tapings, the actress also added that the production still observes safety protocols.
“Sinabihan naman kami before hand nila miss Camille, and even nila Direk. paulit ulit nila Itay Gil Tejada, Kung ano lang ang makakaya nyong gagawin. Hindi namin kayo pipilitin syempre ang iniisip natin dito ay safety is first,” said Cruz.
She pointed out that both Gonzales and she went with the scenes that felt natural for them.
“Ang sa amin naman ni Jeric was kung ano yung, what would be more natural between the characters of Veron and Gio na kumbaga naiwan namin sa ere when we stopped taping, nung nagkaroon ng pandemiya. So when we returned and shot the new scenes for the latest episodes, syempre kung saan kami nag-stop dun namin kailangan i-restart,” said Cruz.
As for Gonzales, he mentioned his relationship with Cruz. He revealed that they worked before Magkaagaw, and it helped him prepare for the role and their scenes. He also added that they worked together on previous projects.
“For me, I think it’s having a good relationship with your co-actor. Kasi kami naman ni Miss She, it takes time na makapag-build ng ganong relationship as an actor na trust na kayo sa isa’t isa, comfortable na kayo. So kami maraming show na rin kami na nagkasama. And then nakatulong talaga yun going this show na ito na intimate na, intense na, may love scenes,” said Gonzales.
He added that both of them trust each other and feel comfortable working together.
“With us, ni Miss She, ayon, comfortable and we trust each other sa bawat eksena. And tinutulungan namin ang isa’t isa,” said Gonzales.
