Yam Concepcion admitted that it hadn't been easy for her to do the intimate scenes right away on "Init Sa Magdamag" as she had to go through an awkward stage.
During the show's virtual media launch last April 5, the Kapamilya actress recalled how she needed to do a 30-minute getting-to-know stage with her leading man Gerald Anderson before they shot their intimate scenes.
This was to break the ice between them especially since it was their first time working together on television.
"Yung pinakaunang shinoot namin ni Gerald na medyo intimate scene, 'yun 'yung first lock-in namin na hindi pa kami ganoon ka-close. So nandoon pa 'yung ilangan and stuff. So kinailangan namin magkaroon ng 30 minutes with each other to get to know each other," she shared.
"May ganoon kami kasi nakitaan nila na medyo naiilang kami sa isa't isa. And I think that helped also na maging comfortable kami sa isa't isa."
The getting-to-know part was actually effective according to Yam, since they both earned each other's trust within that short period.
"And then eventually, parang naging natural na lang 'yung chemistry naming dalawa and we got comfortable with each other. Nakuha namin 'yung trust ng isa't isa kasi hindi naman yan biglaan eh. Hindi naman siya isang araw lang, you trust the person already, 'di ba? It takes a while for you to trust even your directors, even your co-actors," she explained.
"Since then, noong nakapag-usap kami sa 'getting to know each 30 minutes', 30 minutes lang 'yun ha pero parang nakatulong 'yun sa rapport namin and sa working relationship naming dalawa," she added.
Asked if she has intimate scenes with another co-star JM De Guzman, she said, "Naku, marami. Mas mature nga 'yung kay M (JM)!" she quipped.
"Mas mainit din 'yung eksena namin ni JM kasi siyempre siya 'yung asawa ko dito," she added.
"Init Sa Magdamag" is set to premiere on Kapamilya Channel, Kapamilya Online Live, iWant TFC, WeTV Iflix, A2Z, and TV5 this April 19.
