Ellen Adarna is set to star in a sexy-themed teleserye titled Pasion de Amor.
In preparation for Pasion de Amor, aside from working on her weight, Ellen says, "Ang ginagawa ko lang, they tell me what my character is, I have an idea, her back story, anong pinanggalingan niya, so that's how I internalize."
Right now, she is grateful for the feedback and work advice from her other ABS-CBN co-stars.
"Sometimes si Jake, Jake Cuenca. Naka-ilang awards na siya, ‘di ba? Best Actor! Magaling talaga siya," she remarks.
When prodded to remember what advice she liked best, Ellen pauses then replies, "Nakalimutan ko na, e.
“Uhm, yung movements, I guess?
“Iba kasi ‘pag sa camera. You have to be talagang iniisip mo na may camera diyan, may camera dito. Kailangan mo talaga mag-isip, you have to think also while doing it."
KISSING SCENE. She says that she's definitely more comfortable with herself and her co-stars even when it comes to sexy scenes.
She blurts out, "Ilang with co-stars for intimate scenes? Nalagpasan ko na yun!"
How did she overcome 'ilang' kissing scenes with Ejay?
She shares, "Kasi nagba-bond naman kami, parang nalagpasan na namin yung 'ilang' stage and like if there are kissing scenes kasi, I tell Ejay, like when we did our kissing scene, first kissing scene niya sa soap, ako ang first niya sa soap...
“Sabi ko, ‘You know what, let's finish this, it's work. Gawin mo ano ang dapat mong gawin, tapusin na natin ‘to, hindi ako ma-ooffend. One take lang eto ha?’"
She adds, "Pero two takes talaga, kasi different takes, different angles."
So she gave Ejay his first kissing scene?
Ellen laughs and adds, "And he's also younger than me!"
