Bing Loyzaga, 48, admitted that she was surprised upon finding out that she will have love scenes with Zoren Legaspi, 46, in Kapag Nahati Ang Puso.
In this series, which was formerly titled Karibal Ko Ang Aking Ina, Bing plays Miranda Aseron-Del Valle, the wife of Zoren's character Nico, who in turn becomes involved with Sunshine Cruz's character Rio.
When PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) brought up Bing's intimate scenes that were shown in the AVP, Bing gushed, "Anong ginawa ko! Di ba, nakakadiri at this age!"
Seriously speaking, Bing admitted she felt puzzled before shooting their love scenes.
"Actually, ako, yun yung thought ko, magte-take kami, hindi ba yung mga bida na lang gumagawa nito? Ganitong edad, may ganyan pa ba?"
The veteran actress, in fact, already had these questions in mind when she attended the teleserye's story conference in April 2018.
Laughing, she said, "When I went to the storycon, may triangle, my God!'
"Sure kayo, ako ba kina-cast niyo dito?
"Ganoon yung feeling ko kasi para bang, 'Huh, may ganon?'"
As shown in the trailer, Bing had a bed scene and shower scene with Zoren.
She continued with a smile, "So when we're doing the scenes, siyempre tawang tawa sa akin si Zoren kasi ako yung para bang, 'My God, ano ba 'to?'
"It's like, 'Huh, at this age, meron pa bang ganito, kailangan pa ba nating magpakita ng skin?'
"Tawa siya ng tawa so sabi ko, 'Ay, takpan niyo ng shirt at saka pahinging kumot para naka-cover ako!' Gano'n ako.
"Tapos, of course, yun na nga, tignan mo naman kung gaano kapayat si Sunshine sa tabi ko.
"Kaya sabi ko, 'Oh my God, ano ba itong napasukan ko?'
"Kung bibigyan ka ng love scene, siguro in my 20s in my 30s, oo!
"Pero anyway, so we're here!"
Bing felt the concern showed by the production staff, especially from director Gil Tejada Jr.
"With the direction of Direk Gil, they make you feel comfortable with yourself, they explain why the scene is needed then you get in character, pero ang daming tawanan bago yung scenes!"
In a previous interview, Zoren shared that he did a scene where he was not wearing underwear.
Bing clarified that she wasn't part of that scene, but they were able to talk about it.
She recalled, "Scene niya lang yun, scene niya yun. I wasn't there. After that, doon kami nagsama.
"Sabi ko, 'O, kwento ng mga staff, ang saya saya raw nila sa 'yo, kasi meron kang wrestling.' 'Naku, alam mo ba...'
"After niya magkwento, ako yung nag-yuck, too much info!
"It's just a funny thing that happened, thank God, wala ako sa set kasi ang ingay ingay ko, ookrayin kita!"
PEP.ph spoke to Bing during the July 6 press conference of Kapag Nahati Ang Puso at GMA Network Building in Quezon City.
The new series, which also stars Bea Binene, Benjamin Alves, and David Licauco, will premiere on July 16 before Eat Bulaga!
JANNO'S REACTION. In real life, Bing is married to singer-actor Janno Gibbs and they have two children, Alyssa and Gabby.
How do they feel about Bing's intimate scenes with Zoren?
"Siyempre si Janno, it's part of the job, sanay naman siya sa ganun even when he has his own.
"Pero my kids, they're more of like, 'My God, I don't want to watch that!' So ako, 'Yeah, please don't!'
"Di ba, kasi hindi naman nila akong nakikitang ganun sa house tapos pag nagku-kwento ako yung mga eksena nagwawala ako, sasabihin nila, 'Oh my God, Ma, I want to see you go ape shit!'
"Pero there's a love scene, [sasabihin nila,] 'Yuck!'
"Napagku-kuwentuhan namin, so I think ang aabangan ko is their [kids] reaction!
"But I know that with this show, the fans of Bea Binene will hate me. Oh well, pinasukan ko ito so paninindigan ko na lang."
