After a ten-day trip in Greece, Star Cinema's newest loveteam Richard Gutierrez and KC Concepcion share their experiences in Santoriniisland and the things they discovered about each other.
Richard immediately dispelled notions that the daughter ofMegastar Sharon Cuneta and heartthrob Gabby Concepcion is a princess who wants to be waited upon hand-and-foot. "After spending ten days with KC in Greece,talagang nakapag-bonding po kami dun at nakilala ko siya ng husto. Pero may mgaugali pa din si KC na dun ko lang din na-discover.
"Kung iisipin po natin, lahat tayo, ‘pag inisip natin si KC,meron agad tayong certain image na naiisip na parang prinsesa siya. Pero kungmakikilala niyo po siya ng husto, try traveling with her. Napaka-down-to-earthpo ni KC," he says about his leading lady.
For her part, KC reveals that Richard was also verynurturing but he spent every chance he could get to catch his much-neededsleep. "Sobrang takaw-tulog po si Chard! Apart from that, talagang mabait siyasa lahat," she says. The GMA-7 star defends himself by saying that he has notbeen getting enough sleep for the past three years, so he took this opportunityto get enough sleep and gather energy for the work ahead.
KC also observed that Richard was at first uneasy with the crew and staff sincethis is the first time that he is doing a movie under Star Cinema. "Nung una,nakita ko na ilang pa sa kanya yung mga kasama naming crew...I think partlybecause isa siyang Kapuso and alam naman natin kung paano siya tratuhin ng GMA,kaya siguro dahil doon, yung mga tao, naiilang sa kanya, iniisip kung ano baugali niya. Pero after a while, nakita ko na napakadali niyang pakisamahan."
The movie's title, For The First Time, not only refersto their first tandem but also their first-time experiences in doing the film.This movie marks the first time that Richard is working with ABS-CBN's filmoutfit, Star Cinema. This is also his first time to work with Ms. Joyce Bernal.
Greece is a seismically active island because of thepresence of many volcanoes. Around 3,500 years ago, Santorini witnessed anawesome volcanic explosion that occurred in the Aegean Sea. This resulted in ahuge caldera that is approximately four miles in diameter.
One experience that is very memorable for Richard and KC wasthe earthquake that occurred in Santorini on their second day. Aside fromthat incident, the stars simply enjoyed the wonders of Greece. "Halos lahat pong pagkain sa Greece, lahat ng salads natikman namin. Naglakad-lakad po kamidun, so nakapag-usap po kami ng maayos bilang magkaibigan," reveals KC.
Richard adds: "Pati po yung sunset, yung hot spring...naging adventurous lang pokami dun sa Greece."
