Enrico Santos on Julia Montes: "Powerful siya as far as eliciting sexual energy is concerned.”



Julia Montes, Gerald Anderson, and JC de Vera were perfect for Halik sa Hangin, according to movie writer Enrico Santos.

Star Cinema did not mind getting new set of actors to be part of its first movie offering for 2015 because, according to Enrico, “The movie requires a huge amount of sensuality.

“They have to be naturally sensual, pinanganak pa lang sexy na, sila po 'yon.”

At the blog conference of the movie held recently, he explained why Julia, Gerald and JC were chosen to play the lead roles of the suspense-romance film.

He said, “If you notice Julia, kapag nakausap n'yo [si Julia], napaka-virginal, natatakot bawat eksena na baka may lumitaw ng isang square inch ng skin.

“Pero kapag tiningnan n'yo naman sa trailer, naturally nag-e-exude sa kanya ang kanyang passion.

“Sabi nga namin, 'Julia, hindi mo pa alam ang powers mo. Hindi mo pa ginagamit.' Pero super powerful siya as far as eliciting sexual energy is concerned.”

Before continuing, Enrico stressed, “I don't want to say that this is a sex movie, ha.”

He pointed out, “To match that passion of deeper romance, JC and Gerald will fit the film.

“We need strong men. We need men na hindi boyish ba, hindi pa-cute, kundi men who would be able to withstand stormy relationship that the actress requires of her co-actors.”

He also emphasized, “That combination is intense, stormy, unexpected. Bagay na bagay sa kanila ang maging impulsive, maging dangerous, maging rish-taker, maging adventurous.”

SENSUALITY WORKSHOP. At the blog conference, the three lead stars mentioned that they underwent sensuality workshop prior to filming Halik sa Hangin.

The activity allowed Julia, Gerald, and JC become more familiar with each other before doing intimate scenes.

Julia related, “Buti na lang noong kinunan namin ang love scene, kumportable na kami [ni Gerald] sa isa't isa.

“Siguro nakatulong din na hindi agad para at least 'yong bigay namin ay okay at hindi talaga obvious na naiilang o nahihiya sa isa't isa.

“Of course, thankful din ako na siya ang kasama ko noong time na 'yong kasi hindi rin ganun kadali gawin. Iba siya sa mga nagawa ko talaga.”

For his part, Gerald said that he tried his best to make Julia comfortable while doing their love scene.

He recalled, “Mahaba po ang pag-uusap naming tatlo [points to Julia and director Manny Palo].

“Maraming convincing, siyempre, sabi nga natin she's already mature for her age pero she's still a 19 year old.

“Wala pa naman siyang ganung karaming experiences tulad nito pong pinag-uusapan natin, mga love scenes.

“Noong nakita ko nga siya bago kami mag-take nanginginig, malalim ang paghinga niya, 'tapos nagsa-sign of the cross pa.”

When asked what he particularly did to make his leading lady more comfortable, Gerald replied, “I gave her words of encouragement na rin. Sinasabi ko sa kanya na kaya mo 'yan.

“Kumbaga, nakakailang talaga kasi wala kaming history na ano pagkatapos ganito pa ang eksena. Parang you wanna make her feel comfortable as possible. Sana nagawa ko 'yon.”

BEING A NEW ABS-CBN TALENT. Meanwhile for JC, he said it worked for his portrayal of Alvin that he's a new addition to the Kapamilya Network.

The former Moon of Desire actor said, “What's nice kasi since first time ko sila makatrabaho, so 'yong character ko as Alvin, hinahabol ko talaga 'yong character ni Mia. Kasi si Mia, medyo di siya sure sa kung ano ang gagawin niyang decision.

“Nag-work 'yon for me, 'yong ganung relatioship, kasi noong una hindi pa kami ganun ka-comfortable ni Julia dahil first time.

“Hindi mo naman talaga maaasahan na first time mo maka-work ay magaan na kaagad ang pakiramdam. Nag-work na rin 'yon para sa aming dalawa.

“Eventually, habang ginagawa namin 'yong movie, naging magaan ang pakiramdam.

“Parang nag-escalate ang naramdaman namin sa isa't isa, step-by-step nagkaroon kami ng connection.”

Julia seconded, “Bukod sa workshop, kaming tatlo talaga, at first, halos di nag-uusap.

“Parang hi lang. Later on, doon na nag-start 'yong usap-usap na, nagtutulungan na.

“Ako, alam ko sa sarili ko na kapag nasa eksena, nandoon sila, talagang into it sila. Doon na rin nag-start ang bonding.”
