Why the ‘Princess DayaReese’ cast will never forget their filming days

The cast of the upcoming Star Cinema film “Princess DayaReese” has opened up about the lifelong friendship they have built throughout filming!

The romantic adventure flick, which will premiere New Year’s Day 2021, has completed filming a little over a month ago, and during those times, the entire team has found real friends in each other. During the movie’s Royal Presentation on Saturday, December 20, Chie Filomeno, Iggy Boy Flores, and CJ Salonga shared their appreciation for everyone.

Chie shared that she will bring with her the lessons she learned from the fictional Kingdom of Oro, and also the incredible camaraderie the cast shared.

She said, “Siguro po ‘yung mga aral na mabibitbit namin all throughout our lives, siguro po ‘yung camaraderie na nabuo namin sa Kingdom ng Oro. ‘Yung mga learnings, journey po namin dun sa Oro.”

Iggy shared the same sentiment. He said, “‘Yung friendship and ‘yung bond na nabuo namin. Kasi sa mga hindi po nakakaalam, nag-lock in taping po kami [for around] one month and one week, and sa loob ng isang buwan na ‘yun, ‘yung samahan na nabuo namin, grabe. Ito ‘yung mga tipo ng pagkakaibigan na alam mo sa sarili mo na hindi basta-basta mawawala.”

Rise Artist Talent CJ added, “Para po talaga kaming family kasi nagtutulungan kami sa bawat eksena.”

When it comes to unforgettable moments, cast member Neil Coleta mentioned the constant guidance from their director, Barry Gonzalez. “‘Yung buong cast and si Direk Barry. [Natutunan ko kay Direk] na ilabas mo lang kung ano ka, and sa set kasi walang pressure eh, sobrang masaya lang. ‘Yung pagtutulungan namin sa trabaho, and si Direk ‘di kami pinabayaan sa mga eksena.”

Iggy and Chie, meanwhile talked about their difficult but rewarding hike to the top of the mountain to get to their set.

Iggy shared, “‘Yung experience namin sa tuktok ng bundok. Kasi grabe ‘yun, puro bato, walang puno, ang init. Pero kahit sobrang grabe nung init nun, ang gaan. Kasi si Direk Barry, habang umaakyat kami ng bundok, nagpapatugtog si Direk Barry ng ethnic music. Dun ko na-appreciate ‘yung friendship na nabuo namin. [Doon ko] na-realize na ang saya-saya ng set na ‘to.”

Chie also recalled the memory and said, “‘Yung pag-akyat ng cave or bundok. Kasi hindi mo mararamdaman ‘yung pagod kasi ‘yung mga kasama mo sobrang light, alam mo talagang mahal nila ‘yung ginagawa nila.”

“Princess DayaReese” stars Maymay Entrata and Edward Barber.
