The Megastar Sharon Cuneta sets foot on Regal grounds for the first time via a cameo guesting in OMG (Oh My Girl) because of her love and deep friendship with young superstar Judy Ann Santos and multi-talented comedian Ogie Alcasid.
"We are so happy that Ate Sharon said yes to guesting in OMG," said Juday. "This is a fun movie and we made sure she would have such a good and comfortable time during our shoot."
The shoot was held at Ogie's hometown, Taal, Batangas. And he, along with Regal matriarch Mother Lily Monteverde made sure everyone is well attended to. "We would want them to experience the Batangueño hospitality," said Ogie. "Happy nga ako kasi, nai-suggest ko lang na dito sa Taal kami mag-shooting, hindi ko alam na papayag sila [Regal Films]."
"This is the least I can do for my friends, Juday and Ogie and Mother Lily who have all been good to me in my years in showbusiness," said Sharon. "Like what the movie conveys, real love and friendship prevails—and despite what everyone says about fleeting relationships and tainted power relationships in this industry, my dealings with Juday and Ogie and Mother Lily transcends everything—will be here forever."
Sharon didn't mind travelling for almost three hours from their house in Sta. Rosa, Laguna to Taal, Batangas.
"Pumunta ako rito, hindi ko alam kung ano ang cameo role ko sa movie," said the Megastar when she talked to the entertainment press that went to the shooting. "Ngayon ko lamang nalaman na I will play the role of a fake manghuhula, na huhulaan ko sila, not knowing nila na kilala ko na sila since their childhood days kaya akala nila, totoo ang hula ko."
No other than Mother Lily suggested that Sharon wear a costume as a fake fortuneteller (manghuhula).
Is it true that Sharon only shot two sequences for OMG?
"Yes, pero okey lamang kasi nag-enjoy naman ako at wala rin akong pakialam, hinintay ko silang matapos ng shooting at sabay-sabay din kaming umuwi early morning na. In between takes nila, wala kaming ginawa kundi magkuwentuhan, kung anu-ano, minsan kasama naming ang friend naming direktor, si Direk Nico 'Ga' Garcia," nagtatawang wika ni Sharon. "These are rare moments na nakakasama mo at nakakapag-update ka with your friends, na hindi mo napapansin ang time. Nalaman ko na lang, pack-up na pala kami."
OMG (Oh My Girl) will hit the big screen on July 29, 2009. Aside from Judy Ann and Ogie, it also stars Roderick Paulate, Carmi Martin, John Prats, Jon Avila, Nova Villa and a lot of special cameo guestings like that of Regine Velasquez.
