It turns out that before "Seven Sundays", Enrique Gil had a hard time crying for scenes.
In the film's Press Conference recently, the talented young actor shared that one "Seven Sundays" scene in particular opened him up again emotionally, saying that he hadn't cried as much since before his father Enrique Sr. passed away.
He said, "Hindi ako iyakin. Even when my dad passed away. Sa [lamay] niya hindi ako nakaiyak. Tapos kahit sa workshop...kasi sinasabi sa akin 'think of your dad, think of your dad' [pero] hindi talaga ako nakakaiyak talaga. [The director]...she told me off na 'there's something wrong with you.'"
He continued, bravely "Hindi ko alam kung bakit pero for some reason during that eulogy...naalala ko 'yung dad ko."
"Naiyak ako. After how many years, umiyak ulit ako."
Enrique plays the youngest Bonifacio Dex in "Seven Sundays," wherein Dingdong Dantes, Cristine Reyes, and Aga Muhlach play as his elder siblings and Ronaldo Valdez as their father diagnosed with Stage 4 cancer.
The film asks: As the Bonifacios confront their history, will they be able to reconnect and find redemption in each other?
"Seven Sundays" is now on its third mega blockbuster week in cinemas!
