Julia Barretto is ready to do love scenes with on-and-off-screen leading man Joshua Garcia!
The 21-year-old actress told members of the press at the "Ngayon at Kailanman" Media Launch today, August 13, that she feels as though their love team is ready to take their partnership to the next level. This is a brave statement from the pair, considering they haven't even kissed in their cinematic outings yet.
Julia explained, "I'm very open [to love scenes]. Because we're also above 20, we're 21, we're turning 22. I also feel like it's healthy to be able to explore and take a little bit of a risk because in reality naman, when we fall in love there are no limitations."
She continued, "Feeling ko sa 'Ngayon at Kailanman' mas nagiging mature na 'yung roles namin and we're adults na. I'm very much open and very much excited that will challenge both Josh and I."
Of course, more sensual scenes take a huge amount of trust for all parties involved in order to be executed with class. Julia assured that their love team has that in spades.
"Mas kumportable kaming gumawa ng eksena, lalo na 'pag intimate na or medyo nagiging sensual na 'yung eksena. It's comfortable, we're open and I trust him. It's a different level of trust na alam naming aalagaan namin 'yung isa't isa, and we'll support each other especially in a scene."
"Ngayon at Kailanman" will also star Jameson Blake, Alice Dixson, Iza Calzado, Joao Constancia, Dominic Ochoa, and Ina Raymundo. It hits Primetime Bida this August 20!
Joshua and Julia starred in "I Love You Hater" alongside Kris Aquino this year.
