“Fantastica” will mark Bela Padilla’s first foray into a straight-up comedy.
The mutli-hyphenate actress spoke to Push in an interview published this morning, December 1, about how her upcoming film, led by the country’s biggest comedian Vice Ganda, and heading to the 2018 Metro Manila Film Festival this Christmas, pushed her as an actress.
She said, “Ang ganda kasi nga I feel like I’m at a point in my life right now where I want to experiment with things and that’s what’s happening. I’m accepting roles right now na I never thought I would. It’s my first time to do a pure comedy so don’t expect.”
However, Bela says she required quite a bit of help for her role. She explained, “Pero ginuide naman ako. Lahat halos ng scenes ko nakabantay sila tapos pag meron sila naisip na gusto nila idagdag dinadagdagan pa nila so mas nagiging funny yung scenes. Pero ang sarap. It’s nice to get out of your comfort zone once in a while so that’s what happened to me here.”
As for her unkabogable co-star, let’s just say Bela is learning the comedic roles from the best. She said this of Vice Ganda, “I’m very thankful kasi madami akong eksena na wala siya eh. Nakikita ko yung difference pag nandun siya. Meron siyang naiisip talaga na hindi naiisip ng normal na tao. Parang may pinapagawa siyang movements na siya lang yung nakakakita sa set. Ang galing. It’s nice to observe people like that din.”
“Fantastica" also stars Richard Gutierrez, Dingdong Dantes, Kisses Delavin, Donny Pangilinan, Ronnie Alonte, Loisa Andalio, Maymay Entrata, and Edward Barber. Learn more about the film here:
