“La Luna Sangre” has been a wild ride for Kathryn Bernardo and Daniel Padilla, and they want to remember every minute of it.
At their Thanksgiving Press Conference yesterday, February 20, the love team shared the many challenges they faced while shooting, and why they won’t have it any other way.
Kathryn started by saying she had a difficult time molding Malia’s character.
“Nahihirapan ako dito sa paggawa [ng character], ang laki ng mga adjustments na ginawa ko for Malia… parang tinanggal ‘yung pagka-Kathryn ko,” she said, but added that playing the “Bagong Itinakda” gave her more confidence in life.
“Dadalhin ko in real life ‘yung pagiging tough niya, kasi kilala naman ako na very girly, hindi ko in-expect na okay din pala ‘yung pagiging tough. Nagustuhan ko ‘yung pananalita, paano kumilos, very warrior-like… sana ganun na din ako in real life,” she said.
Meanwhile Daniel cited his experience as a jeepney driver as the most fun challenge he’s had as an actor.
“Hindi lang naman kasi puro arte ‘yun, meron din kaming action, hindi kasi madaling mag-action sa teleserye kasi meron nga tayong airing na hinahabol… Minsan nakaka-stress pero masaya pa rin naman. Nasa mindset mo naman paano mo dadalhin,” he said. “So dun kami nagshu-shoot sa Quiapo, talagang na-enjoy ko ‘yung pagbabiyahe ko, nakikita ko ‘yung mga tao, ang saya din gawin, very humbling experience.”
As for the ultimate “kontrabida” in the series, both Kathryn and Daniel named time (and the lack of it) as the culprit.
“Oras pinaka-kalaban namin dito… Kung meron lang kaming enough time na mas pagandahin with the effects and everything… sana maintindihan nila kung saan kami nanggagaling, ‘yung staff halos mamatay na, hindi na nakakauwi para lang may i-ere,” Kathryn said.
“La Luna Sangre” is down to its last two weeks on ABS-CBN’s Primetime Bida.
