“The Better Half” lead actresses Shaina Magdayao and Denise Laurel are in full confidence that their new teleserye may be a little sexy but it remains within the limits.
That is also why they have no qualms of doing it, because they trust the script and the team behind the show.
“I’ve been working with ABS-CBN for a very very long time. I’ve been doing a lot the sensual, very suggestive, risky scenes throughout the shows that I’ve done, especially before I became a mom. And ABS always takes care of their artists and they’re very aware of the guidelines of MTRCB, so they really need to pass through the Board and it’s screened before its released,” said Denise at the show’s media launch yesterday, February 9.
She added, “At the same time ‘pag shinu-shoot namin we really have in mind the rules and if the actors are all comfortable… They’re very secure sa set, so we really know coming into the set na safe kami. And that the production and the staff will always be there for us. The directors won’t make us look weird naman or cheap.”
Viewers can expect scenes like these on the show’s pilot episode as their business unit head Ginny Monteagudo-Ocampo said that it would be very “sensual.”
She also announced that it got an SPG rating from the MTRCB (Movie and Television Review and Classification Board) for it.
“With Miss Ginny’s guidance dun sa set namin, ‘cause she personally goes to our set, and this is directed by Direk Jeffrey Jeturian tapos inilawan pa ni Sir Neil Daza, it is tastefully done. That’s what I can say na ako po mismo ang nasa eksenang ‘yon,” said Shaina.
Shaina also believes that “The Better Half” isn’t the typical drama with a sexy twist as it will also have bigger elements to it.
“I’d like to think na this is the first na may ganito silang makikita sa panghapon na slot. May suspense, may thriller, may romance. Siguro sa amin na parte ng show, bago siya. That’s why it’s exciting but also scary at the same time dahil risky siya,” she said.
“The Better Half” is premiering on Kapamilya Gold this Monday, February 13. It also stars Carlo Aquino, JC de Vera, Carmi Martin, Epi Quizon, and more.
