GMA-7 actress Rhian Ramos says about her latest project, "Itong movie na 'to talaga, masasabi ko na ibingay ko na lahat. Wala akong itinira rito.”
The actress is referring to Kung Paano Siya Nawala, her upcoming film with leading man JM de Guzman. Rhian and JM co-produced this movie with TBA Studios and it will open on cinemas this November 14.
Speaking about giving it all, PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) asked the actress about her intimate scenes with JM in the movie.
“Awkward naman pa rin. All intimate scenes are awkward,” she replied at the media launch, which took place at High Grounds Café, Quezon City, last October 31.
“I’m sure some people think, ‘O, may nadala ba or whatever?’ But it’s impossible,” she explained.
“There’s like 50 people around you trying to light the scene and in ours, there was like my pet dog was involved in the room somewhere.”
Rhian pointed that she and JM shared the same awkwardness when they shot their bed scene.
However, since they were feeling the same nervousness, they used it as leverage.
“Aware naman ako na pareho kaming nervous no’n, e. And we were just honest about it na parang, ‘Kakahiya ‘to.’ We were just talking on the side na parang, ‘Nakakahiya ‘to’ or whatever.
“But I guess because of that, alam namin na we were both going through the same thing. Walang lamang dito. Okay tayo.”
Kung Paano Siya Nawala tells the story of Lio (JM), a quiet and withdrawn young man who finds it difficult to connect with other people due to his face blindness, a cognitive disorder characterized by an inability to recognize faces. But the inhibited Lio finds himself opening up to the world when he falls in love with Shana (Rhian), a beautiful, free-spirited girl who has secrets of her own.
