Sabi ni Direk Lauren, "Nakakakilig to be back on the set and just observing people’s behavior.

"It’s a privilege to withess both actors from the Phils and Japan who are similar in a lot of ways.

"Intense in their preparation, of being in the zone before the shoot and giving their 101% in every take.

"This is really a great opportunity for @jose_liwanag [Carlo] to be working in a different environment, with a mixed crew of nationalities: Japanese, French DOP, Australian Scriptcon, European MMA fighter LM and helmed by a Filipino director. And acting side by side with a Japanese, Hollywood actor @takehiro49 [Takehiro Hira] whose professionalism is admirable.

"He rides the service with the staff, arrives early on the set, quietly prepares for his scenes and always on the set when needed.

"Nakakaproud din that Carlo doesn’t seem intimidated or at least he doesn’t show it.

"He comes prepared and ready every shooting day kahit English pa majority of his dialogues. Talagang pang international productions na mga artista ng Star Magic!"

Bilang nagsimula sa pagiging child actor sa ABS-CBN, nakita raw ni Direk Lauren ang growth at maturity ni Carlo sa pagganap sa iba't ibang karakter.

Pagmamalaki niya, "Layo na ng growth and maturity ni Carlo from his “Gmik” days with me but even at that time he has shown so much potential to be a very good actor.

"He is a very intuitive artist.”

Bukod kay Carlo, kasama rin nila ngayon sa Japan ang direktor na si Donie Ordiales.

“Seeing Hira-San and Carlo collaborating with Direk Donie is fascinating.

“They bounce off ideas to make a scene better and more meaningful. Great actors will provide nuances that will make memorable characters and make the film more alive and dynamic.

“I learn as well by just being on this set.

“Dumadali trabaho ng director at lalong makakainspire when you cast very good actors na madaling katrabaho rin.”

Sa huli, nagpasalamat si Direk Lauren sa High Road Creatives, Direk Donie, at aktor na si Zeppi Borromeo sa pagtitiwala nila sa talento at husay ni Carlo.

Hindi ito ang kauna-unahang pagkakataong nabigyan ng break sa international spotlight si Carlo.

Noong 2021 ay nakatakda sana siyang mapabilang sa cast ng hit South Korean series na Squid Games ngunit dahil sa travel restrictions dulot ng COVID-19 ay hindi siya natuloy.
