Kris Bernal opened up about doing love scenes with Rafael Rosell and Ryan Eigenmann, her two leading men in GMA-7’s upcoming afternoon teleserye Impostora.
Kris portrays dual characters, as Nimfa and Rosette.
Nimfa is a street vendor who is often mocked by society because of her ugly face, while Rosette is a rich woman having an affair with a cosmetic surgeon Jeremy (Ryan), because of her unhappy marriage with Rafael.
After a series of unfortunate events, Nimfa crosses paths with Jeremy, who offers to help her by reconstructing her face.
Nimfa gets elated with her new face only to find out that she was made to look like Rosette.
To return the favor for her new face, Nimfa has to take Rosette’s place and fool the latter’s children and husband.
This will give the real Rosette the chance to continue her affair with Jeremy.
COMPARING RAFAEL AND RYAN. At the presscon of the teleserye this Monday evening, June 5, Kris differentiated her love scenes with her leading men.
She described Rafael a good kisser and really handsome.
“Hindi nga ako makatingin sa kanya nung una kasi parang ang gwapo niya, di ba,” beamed Kris.
Kris admitted that there was a bit of a struggle because she got ticklish in their love scene.
“Kasi nakikiliti lang ako. Kasi may mga love scenes na parang di mo madaya, so kailangan mo talagang gawin.
“Maalalay si Rafael at good kisser siya.
“Pero nakikiliti talaga ako. Di ako makatingin sa kanya.
“Hindi naman sa may pagnanasa ako, ha, pero ang gwapo niya kasi pag nag- eye-to-eye kami, ako ang nahihiya.”
Good thing that prior to taping, she had workshops with her leading men, which helped her to become comfortable with them in delicate scenes.
“Nag-workshop naman kami. Nung workshop namin, more on physical activities, so talagang tinry naming mag-make touch and all sa sensitive parts… hindi naman talaga sa pinaka-sensitive, pero yun parang wala lang din, haplos-haplos.
“Pero magaling itong si Raf,”she beamed followed by a giggle.
Rafael was hesitant to speak up about his love scene with Kris.
“Parang ayokong sabihin at i-share dahil personal experience ko yon, so I think the only way na malaman, e, panoorin niyo ang eksena.
“May mga nuances don na hindi ko in-expect.
“Nung pinanood ko nangyari pala, so para sa akin nag-blank out ako nung nag-action.
“Tapos nung nag-cut bumalik na ko sa sarili mo.”
On Ryan, the actress was quick to say, “Si Ryan, ito mas magaling talaga.
“Pareho, pero si Ryan kasi talagang alam na niya kung paano gawin yung mga love scenes, so parang di ako umarte.
“So kahit di na ako magbigay, sa acting niya pa lang kitang-kita na intense yung love scene.”
Ryan explained that he has done love scenes in past projects so it was easy for him to execute the scenes.
“I guess marami-rami na rin akong nadaanan na love scenes so I guess mas madali na in a way, kasi alam mo na ang direksyon kung saan dadalhin, especially malaki din naman ang naitulong ng workshop na ginawa namin para mawala ang mga apprehension sa isa't-isa.
He added, “Doing all this is for entertainment and whatever happens there, it’s there. At the end of the day, it’s just another job.”
