Beauty queen Bea Rose Santiago recently joined the ranks of Supremo’s (Richard Gutierrez) vampires on the primetime fantaserye “La Luna Sangre” and she spoke with ABS-CBN Entertainment about her first week of taping.
“The first week I filmed in ‘La Luna Sangre’ is, right away, a bed scene with Richard Gutierrez,” she said with a smile. “And I’m very happy that my first bed scene was [with] THE Richard Gutierrez.”
“He was my childhood crush,” Bea Rose admitted.
She said she was very nervous about taping the scene because it was the first time she was physically very close to a man that wasn’t her boyfriend. Nonetheless, she shared that Richard was very helpful about the whole thing.
“He was very, very professional,” Bea Rose said. “I think it’s because of the fact that he’s also a director. So he was telling me, ‘this angle... this area, this is what you’re going to do, expect this.’ So there were no surprises.”
“Actually, there was no nudity at all for a bed scene,” she added. “The director, Direk G.B. (Sampedro), is so, so good na [pagdating] sa TV, it looked like it was so artistically done. There was a creepiness there, but it looked so nice and regal that I was like, ‘Wow! It looks so good!’”
Bea Rose won the crown for Miss International back in 2013. Before joining “La Luna Sangre,” she appeared on multiple episodes of the recently defunct teleserye “A Love To Last” that starred Bea Alonzo and Ian Veneracion.
