Bea confirmed that she underwent rigorous boxing and gun handling classes to aid her in portraying Rain's character.
Since this is their first time to work together, Bea and Robin cannot hide their excitement for this project. Bea shows no apprehensions for her intimate scenes with Robin.
"Oo, na-excite ako. Meron, marami. Kailangan nilang abangan ang mga romantic scenes ng characters namin kasi parang sa gulo ng mundo nila, parang every time na may moments na ganun tumatahimik lahat, bumabagal lahat, nagiging makulay lahat," said the Kapamilya actress.
Diether, who plays the rival of Robin's character in this story, admitted: "It's my first time to do a real hard action, so talagang medyo binusisi namin ito dahil matagal-tagal din naming pinaghandaan. So defenitely nakaka-excite na panoorin itong Guns and Roses."
Ejay Falcon is cast as Robin's brother in the series while his love interest will be Empress.
