Six months have passed since Laida Magtalas and MiggyMontenegro became a couple in A Very Special Love. In the sequel titled YouChanged My Life, Star Cinema picks up where they left off and shows how thetwo characters have grown since they became committed to each other.
In the trailer of You Changed My Life, Laida (Sarah Geronimo) is rushingto meet her boyfriend Miggy (John Lloyd Cruz). Her mother reminds her to slowdown a bit by saying, "Dahan-dahan lang, pakipot ka naman ng konti!"
At the start of the film, Miggy tends to spoil his newgirlfriend but somewhere along the way, he becomes too caught up with his workto spend time with her. Meanwhile, Laida is tempted by a new job opportunitythat will take her abroad. She also catches the attention of her childhoodfriend Mcoy (played by Rayver Cruz).
How will the couple surpass all these challenges in YouChanged My Life?
During the press conference of the Star Cinema film, JohnLloyd and Sarah pointed how their characters have grown since they portrayedthem in the first film AVSL.
"If you will remember, natutunan ni Miggy na ibaba ang kanyang tumataginting napride. Dun sa ending namin, pumayag na ko magtrabaho sa ilalim ni Art, mybrother [portrayed by Rowell Santiago in AVSL]," narrates JLC. "Sinabi ko ngakay Laida sa Luneta that I'm a work-in-progress. And nung sinabi n'ya yun,sobrang binaba na niya ang sarili niya at willing na siya magmahal at baguhinang dapat baguhin. Marami ang pagbabago kay Miggy," describes John Lloyd.
As for Sarah, she says that viewers can look forward to seeing her charactermature as a loving woman. "Makikita ninyo kung paano magmahal si Laida at yungmga sacrifices na willing niyang gawin para kay Miggy. At kung ano yungprogress niya bilang isang individual."
This gives rise to the question: does Sarah love the same way as Laida? Sarahdeclares, "Kung paano magmahal si Laida Magtalas at si Sarah Geronimo, sobrangpareho. Yung pagmamahal niya sa family niya, sa trabaho niya, yun din po yun."
In the first movie, John Lloyd's character stole a kiss from Sarah towards theend of the movie. This time will they have a real kissing scene since they arealready a couple? Sarah chose to keep it a secret while John Lloyd told thepress: "Yun yung magic ng pelikula, ayaw naming ibigay lahat ngayon. Parang yunlang ang laging hinahanap, e. Parang yun lang ang tanging magigingmanifestation na effective yung pelikula. Wag naman kasi ang dami pang ibangfactors, ang dami pang pwedeng ibigay bukod sa isang halik."
WHY THE WIG? Just like in AVSL, Sarah will also be seen sporting a wigfor her role as Laida. Why is there a need for the TV host-singer to wear a wigin the two movies? "We normally want our actors to be seen in the movie otherthan their personal selves. And one way to do is to change the personality, ifit requires a wig, why not? Nung nagka-wig si Sarah, parang hindi na siya siSarah, si Laida Magtalas na siya. Binabagay po namin ang personalidad ngartista sa role na gagampanan niya," explains director Cathy Garcia-Molina, whoalso helmed AVSL.
