Sunshine Dizon, without a doubt, is a versatile actress.

But there is one thing she cannot do: Have a torrid kissing scene in her projects.

Totoo ba?

Sunshine shares the story behind this during her PEP Live session on Wednesday, May 6.

During the interview, Sunshine is asked if she will have sensual scenes in the afternoon series Magkaagaw.

After all, Sunshine's co-star, Sheryl Cruz, did several intimate scenes, including a provocative kissing scene, with Jeric Gonzales.

Sunshine answers, "I'm just very thankful and lucky na naiintindihan naman at nirerespeto din ng GMA iyong aking mga kumbaga... how would I explain?

"Ito iyong mga bagay na hindi ko na kayang gawin. Nirerespeto naman nila iyon at kung meron mang sa eksenang ganoon, nagagawan naman ng paraan.

"Not because I really don't want to, pero isa iyan talaga sa parang fears ko or parang talagang my goodness, nanginginig ako!

"Ninenerbiyos talaga ako, pinapawisan ako to the point that I would really hyperventilate.

"Hindi ko talaga siya na-overcome, promise!"

KISSING SCENE IN KUNG MAWAWALA KA

In 2002, Sunshine top-billed the drama series Kung Mawawala Ka with Cogie Domingo, directed by Joel Lamangan.

One of the scenes required Sunshine to kiss Cogie.

The actress recalls, "There was a particular scene wherein Cogie was kissing Iza Calzado. Hindi naman torrid pero lips to lips.

"So, habang nagki-kissing sila, ang nasa script was ang nakikita kunyari ni Cogie sa face ni Iza was me.

"Siyempre, ninenerbiyos na ako lalo na bagets-bagets pa ako noong time na iyon!

"So, ipinakita iyong preview, ganoon daw, naghalikan si Cogie, si Calzado. 'Tapos after, I had to do it the exact way daw."

Sunshine immediately had misgivings about taping the scene.

She continues, "So, I was telling Cogs, 'Cogs, baka puwede namang dayain na lang natin. Tulungan mo naman ako kasi ninenerbiyos na talaga ako.'

"Before we started, parang pinapawisan lang ako nang very, very light but during the scene itself? Day, promise, buong katawan ko, tumutulo iyong pawis. Parang puwede mo akong pigaan. Gano'n kapawis talaga.

"I remember, iyong first scene, kunyari kissing-kissing, e, ang stiff yata ng katawan ko, parang halatang naninigas ako, parang ang pangit talaga! Ang panget!

"'Tapos siyempre, nagalit ang lola mo Joel Lamangan!

"'Cut! Ano iyan?! Ang pangit,' sabing ganyan! 'Ayusin niyo iyan! Take two!'

"Sabi ko, 'Cogs, iyong kamay mo, daya-dayain mo na lang.'

"E, siguro ninenerbiyos din si Cogie. Ewan ko bakit ganun, so nag-cut uli!

"Ito na, mainit ang ulo ni Lamangan! Sabi niya, 'Ayusin niyo iyan! Kapag hindi niyo iyan inayos, buong araw kayong maghahalikan,' sabi!

"So, ako talaga iba na talaga iyong feeling ko at saka iba na iyong heartbeat ko."

After three takes, Sunshine and Cogie's kissing scene passed Lamangan's standards.

"So, finally nagawa naman namin iyong scene. Sabi ni Direk noong nag-cut, 'O, ayan! Kaya niyo naman palang gawin. Lunch break!'"

But the tension did not leave Sunshine even after she left the set.

She narrates, "I remember, parang hindi na maganda iyong pakiramdam ko. Parang nahihilo ako nang very, very light.

"Ang nagda-drive pa sa akin noong time na iyon is iyong brother ko. So sabi ko sa kuya ko, parang nahihilo ako, hindi maganda iyong pakiramdam ko. Sabi ng kuya ko, 'Baka gutom ka lang, kumain ka na.'

"Ito na friend! Pagsakay ko ng kotse, hindi ko alam, nagha-hyperventilate na ako, nagdilim-dilim na ang paningin ko. Day, nasuka ako!

"They had to rush me to the hospital kasi di na maganda iyong hinga ko 'tapos pa-blackout na ako.

"So, when we got to the E.R., ang sabi ng doctor, nag-hyperventilate daw ako siguro sa sobrang nerbiyos.

"'Tapos nanginginig ako, 'tapos they had to give me some medicine to calm me down.

"'Tapos nakabalik naman ako ng taping pero after that, iyon na, dire-diretso na, parang traumatized na ako or something na hindi ko na talaga kaya.

"So ever since, lahat ng mga ganung eksena, dinadaya lang namin."

SCENES WITH ALLEN DIZON, GABBY CONCEPCION

In the next 18 years, Sunshine starred in over 20 television series, and not one of them required her to do a torrid kissing scene.

It helped that her manager Perry Lansigan knew her boundaries.

"Sabi ko nga, even with Perry, kapag may mga projects na dumadating and mga scripts na parang would call for certain scenes na kunyari, may bed scene or torrid kissing scene, parang I would tell Perry na, 'You know, Kuya Perry, I really love to do it except for there are sequences na parang ganyan.'

"So we'll talk nicely to the producer or to the director and ask if parang kung magagawan ba iyon ng paraan or can they cut it away or needed ba?

"Kasi parang I don't want to put myself in a situation wherein I will say yes, and then when you get there, hindi ka makaka-deliver, di ba, na hindi ko kaya, ayoko.

"Ay naku, hindi puwede kay Joel Lamangan! Mumurahin ka, friend! Charot! Di ba?"

In 2014, Sunshine did an independent movie with Joel Lamangan.

Titled Kamkam, the movie featured Sunshine, Jean Garcia, Jackie Rice, and Allen Dizon.

The script incuded a bed scene between Allen and Sunshine.

Sunshine recounts, "Tatlo kaming asawa ni Allen Dizon and, actually, sa script, meron kaming parang bed scene, and I said na, 'Direk, you know I would really love to do it except for I really cannot do that particular scene.'

"So, they were nice enough naman to tweak it a bit and change it. Nasa pag-uusap naman.

"But I'm very honest when I say na hindi ko talaga kaya. So, if I will just cause problems, eventually, I might as well not accept it naman.

"So ganun na lang ang ginagawa namin. Salamat naman at nirerespeto din nila at nakakagawa pa rin ako ng mga pelikulang nagagawan ng paraan iyong mga ganoong eksena."

This was also the case in her 2016 afternoon drama series Ika-6 Na Utos, where she played the legal wife of Gabby Concepcion.

In one scene, Sunshine's character had to seduce Gabby's character.

Thanks to Ika-6 Na Utos director Laurice Guillen, they managed to pull it off even without sharing a torrid kiss.

She says, "I'm also thankful to Direk Laurice kasi naintindihan naman niya ako, and sabi naman niya sa akin, ang sensuality naman daw hindi lang sa halikan, e, di ba?

"Your hands will do the movement, your body language, the way you deliver your lines. Nag-work naman!

"Trumending naman at nag-number one naman ng hindi ako nakikipag-torrid kissing scene!

"At saka nakakatuwa din naman na iyong mga fans, naintindihan naman din nila na they respect me for that, parang ganun."

How many projects has she refused just because she cannot do a kissing scene?

The answer is: None.

"So far, wala naman, parang nagkakataon din na the scripts that come my way or the characters that come my way are parang suited din for me.

"Baka hindi ko alam, siguro alam na rin naman ng production or alam na rin ng mga writers sa tagal ko na ring nandoon, di ba?

"Or ginagawa din naman namin before accepting something, nililinaw lang din namin kung ano ba iyong character? Will it call for certain scenes like that?

"Nililinaw din namin iyon beforehand para hindi rin kami magkasamaan ng loob or parang pagdating doon, 'Naku, umaarte ka, umuwi ka na!' Para wala nang ganoon.

"I would usually tell nga na, 'Please, hindi ko talaga kaya. Kung magkakaproblema man, baka tanggalin niyo na lang ako kasi ayoko din naman to put myself in a situation na I'd say I can do it 'tapos you cannot deliver, di ba?

"Parang huwag mo na lang tanggapin para wala nang stress."
