KC Concepcion and Richard Gutierrez express gratitude for When I Met U director


Richard Gutierrez and KC Concepcion say that they learned a lot when they attended the acting workshop conducted by director Joel Lamangan. Their movie When I Met U will open in cinemas nationwide starting February 11, 2009.




The tandem of Richard Gutierrez and KC concepcion will return to the big screen with a fresh new story for their fans who have missed seeing them on the big screen.

When asked to compare For The First Time with their upcoming film When I Met U, the two pointed out that they are more relaxed in this second endeavor, bringing out more natural actions from the lead stars.

Richard explained, "Siyempre iba pa rin, different yung experience. Yung first movie, siyempre mas kabado, and all that, lahat ng first feelings. Pero ngayon, second movie, so mas na-eenjoy na namin ngayon, kasi mas matagal na kaming magkasama sa trabaho, alam na namin yung working [habits] ng isa't isa. And of course, in terms of the story, we made sure that's it's different from the first movie.

"This movie's gonna be fun, I guarantee you that it's gonna be fun. Paglabas ng mga tao sa sinehan, nakangiti sila at mag-eenjoy sila sa pelikula. Siguro, in terms of the love story, siguro mas mature yung characters, mas mature yung love story."

KC added, "Mas unexpected nga po yung situation na binigay samin, sa character po ni Chard saka sa character ko. Pwede po syang ma-misunderstood sa totoong buhay pero nangyayari po talaga yung ganong klaseng sitwasyon."

In When I Met You, KC and Richard portray two people who are already committed to other people. When they meet each other, they find that their current relationships leave much to be desired.

"Dun mo talaga mapu-prove sa mga ganoong klaseng sitwasyon na pag nagmahal ka ng isang tao, talagang walang limit," says the GMA-7 actor about his role as Benjie, a struggling cargo pilot who is stranded in an island with Jenny (KC).

The press curiously asked KC to describe her experience while working with GMA Films and Regal Entertainment, the producers of the film. "Of course nagpapasalamat po ako sa kanila for making sure na inaalagaan po ako. Siyempre po iba yung environment sa GMA-7, karamihan po puro lalaki, naninibago po ako pero okay naman po yung pakikisama namin sa isa't isa...meron po akong extra effort na kelangan ko rin ma-prove yung sarili ko...madali naman sana akong katrabaho sa set. Masaya naman po yung welcome sa akin, kaya thank you po sa GMA."

How did they differentiate their acting style from their first movie?

"For this one, winorkshop kami ni Direk Joel Lamangan, and I must admit, isa yun sa mga pinakamasayang workshop na napuntahan ko," reveals Richard. "Kahit sandali lang, short period of time lang yung workshop naming pero ang galing magturo ni Joel Lamangan. And siguro dapat masubukan ng mga actors natin yung technique ni Direk Joel Lamangan sa pagtuturo."

KC described his style by saying, "Kinakausap niya po kami bilang characters namin, so nagtatanong siya, tinatanong niya kami and kelangan sumagot kami in our character. And gina-guide nya naman po kami kung ano yung tamang linya, kung ano yung ayon sa character."

Richard showed his gratitude for the director. "With Direk Joel, he gives us the freedom to develop our own characters. So we give him our characters and he's the one who guide us kung ano yung dapat naming ibigay, kung hanggang saan lang, kung anong atake, so maganda yung binibigyan nya kami ng freedom, so it's a different style."

When I Met U will open in cinemas nationwide starting February 11, 2009.
