Luigi Revilla, one of the stars of the action movie "Tres," revealed a number of physical accidents that occurred while filming with his co-actors Markki Stroem and Sandino Martin.
Luigi is a younger brother to Jolo and Bryan Revilla, who are also stars of "Tres," a Revilla family legacy action film.
In a press conference held earlier today, September 18, the young Revilla shared that while rehearsing for a big fight scene, he kicked "I Love You, Hater" actor Markki stronger than expected.
He said, "Heat of the moment, pagkasipa ko, nahulog siya. Akala namin acting. 'Yung mga DOP (director of photography) namin saka cameraman [sabi], 'Uy ang ganda ng sipa na 'yun, grabe. Sapul.'"
Then, they realized that Markki was in pain for real.
"Nung nakita namin si Markki, natamaan 'yung mukha tapos the next day, natanggal nga 'yung ngipin niya. Nag-loose 'yung tooth niya tapos natanggal. Pero props to Markki, after nun, nag-usap pa kami, sabi niya, 'It's okay, it's okay.'"
Luigi commended Markki for remaining professional all throughout filming, saying, "Nagko-complain na siya na masakit. Nagpatawag kami ng nurse. [Pero] even if natamaan na siya, props sa kanya na hindi siya maarte."
He continued, "Buti na lang hindi front teeth. Banda sa likod. Nag-loose."
But Luigi also had his share of physical accidents on the set -- he got hit on the nose by "Changing Partners" actor Sandino.
He shared, "With Sandino naman, nasapak niya ako sa ilong. Akala ko talaga nabali 'yung ilong ko. Kasi when he punched me in the face, namanhid 'yung nose ko, namaga."
Luigi wasn't badly injured and was able to continue on with the filming. He said that he understands how an action movie filming works, and how small mishaps can happen.
"Everday na may fight scene kami, expect na masasaktan ka. Dahil kapag gumulong ka sa floor, 'yung mga paa mo magpapasa-pasa. Dahil sa sobrang bilis ng mga pangyayari, kahit cinematic man 'yan, one wrong move sapul ka talaga," he related.
