Star for All Seasons Vilma Santos appreciates “motivating” style of director Joyce Bernal, who is the director of her upcoming Star Cinema movie with Angel Locsin, Xian Lim.
“Yun ang gusto ko na ginawa Direk, e. Like nu’ng first time namin ni Angel na magka-eksena. Kasi empleyado ko lang siya, hindi kami talaga pinag-uusap,” shares Gov. Vi in an interview with Pep.ph, published September 12. “Hindi niya kami talaga pinag-uusap ni Angel, so, that when we meet sa, sa tension naming dalawa na, ‘Who are you? What’s your name?’
Vilma also said that her interaction on the set with Xian is also like that because their mother-son relationship is also a bit estranged.
“Even with Xian… Naiwan ko siya (Xian’s character)… Nu’ng bumalik siya, binata na. Kaya noong first day din namin ni Xian, hindi rin kami pinagkita ni Direk. Ni-rehearse siya ng solo, ni-rehearse ako ng solo,” says Vilma. “Noong take lang kami [nagkita]... kaya yung tingin naming dalawa pareho, ano, e, you will feel it, e. Ganoon mag-motivate si Direk.”
Gov. Vi added that Direk Joyce wanted “detachment” among the characters because it is needed in the story.
“Kaya maski noong nagkita kami ni ‘Gel (Angel Locsin, girlfriend of her son Luis Manzano), ‘Sorry, Tita.’ Sabi ko, ‘No, no, just don’t talk, sige, ano,’ ganoon,” continues Vilma. “Wala kaming ‘familiarity’ workshop nina Angel at Xian. Hindi kami kailangang maging pamilyar sa isa’t isa especially with my character parang wala ako’ng kaibigan.”
