Film sets have their share of hazardous moments, and Direk Gino M. Santos' production for the steamy film "Sin Island" was no different.
Speaking to members of the press at the "Sin Island" Thanksgiving Bloggers Conference last February 15, Xian Lim revealed that he almost drowned at the beach with co-star Nathalie Hart during shooting.
He said, "Nakalagay po kasi sa script na lalangoy sa tubig at unti-unting mai-in love si David at si Tasha. So parang, okay, lalangoy lang sa kalagitnaan."
"To my surprise and to everyone's surprise, hindi pala marunong lumangoy si Nathalie Hart," he revealed.
However, Xian applauded how "very Nathalie" it was to approach the scene head-on in spite of her lack of swimming abilities.
"Hindi naman siya nagsasalita," he exclaimed, "buong araw pinag-uusapan 'yung eksena. Pero ganoon siya ka-strong, ganoon siya ka-seryoso sa ginagawa niya na tumalon siya [sa tubig], hindi pala siya marunong lumangoy."
He continued, "Nalulunod na siya [and since nakahawak siya sa akin], pareho kaming lumulubog. Halos isang galon ng tubig 'yung nainom ko."
"Sin Island", which also stars Coleen Garcia, is now in its second week in theaters.
