Vice Ganda, Richard Gutierrez, Maymay Entrata, Edward Barber (MayWard), Kisses Delavin, Donny Pangilinan (DonKiss), Loisa Andalio, and Ronnie Alonte (LoiNie) had a collective, resounding emotion when asked for an update on their highly-anticipated movie “Fantastica: The Prince, The Princesses, and The Perya.”
ANG SAYA NILA. As in, in capital letters.
These stars gamely shared stories on their movie experience yesterday evening, September 29, at the sidelines of the ABS-CBN Ball held at the Makati Shangri-La.
According to Kisses, they came from a shooting earlier that day – 4 a.m. to be exact!
“I’m very happy kasi ‘yung ‘Fantastica’ shooting it’s a different kind of set, lahat tumatawa, every time nagte-take si Mommy Vice. Sobrang masaya,” she said.
Her leading man Donny, meanwhile, prevented himself from dishing out a ~spoiler~ because of the immense fun they had on the set.
Kahapon ‘yung pinakamalala kasi ang ganda nung nangyari – hindi ko puwedeng sabihin kung anong nangyari – sobrang saya and we’re just super excited na makita niyo kung ano ‘yung ginagawa namin ngayon,” he shared. And when pressed for a spoiler, he quipped, “Ang ganda ng mga costume.”
MayWard, during our chance to catch up with them, finished each other’s sentences while talking about their “Fantastica” experience. (Ang mag-“jowa” talagang ‘to! )
We finished late,” Edward said, then Maymay continued, “Pero okay lang naman kasi ‘yung all-cast kasi masaya.”
Both Ronnie and Loisa admitted that doing a fantasy project takes a whole lot of effort and could become tiring at times, but they enjoy doing it nonetheless.
Marami ‘yung hindi ganun kadali ‘yung mga eksena. Comedy siya pero may effort,” explained Loisa.
Ronnie added, “Pinakamalupit na nakaeksena namin si Dingdong (Dantes), si Richard, si Vice, ‘yung mga matataas na artista.”
As one of the more seasoned actors among the cast, Richard loves the breath of fresh air that “Fantastica” gives him.
Ang gulo, ang kulit, ang saya ng pelikula namin,” he enthused. “Bawat eksena, nakakatawa. It’s been great working with Vice and the entire team. Coming from ‘La Luna Sangre’ na medyo dark, ngayon naman comedy, very refreshing.”
Doing comedy is likewise always a welcome change for their co-star Dingdong Dantes, apparently.
Ngayon pa kami nagkaro’n ng full-length film kung kailan magkaiba na kami ng istasyon,” Richard related about Dingdong. “Masaya ‘yung experience namin ni Dong. Nasa isang comedy movie kami, isang genre na hindi kami madalas nakikita, so masaya.”
And finally, Vice revealed that they’re just a few days away from finishing their shooting!
Three days na lang. Natutuwa kami, ‘pag nagpe-preview kami, masaya na agad, ‘di pa nage-edit, masaya na kami,” he said.
We’re excited to see how their joy while working together will translate to the big screen!
