Barbie Imperial shot a bathtub scene with leading man JM de Guzman for their afternoon series Precious Hearts Romances: Araw Gabi.
Yesterday, September 18, Barbie posted a behind-the-scenes photo of the scene, where she and JM are together inside a bathtub. JM is topless while Barbie is wearing a bikini top.
She wrote in the caption, "peter kavinsky is yours, but adrian olvidar is mine"
Peter Kavinsky is the lead male character in the Netflix original movie To All The Boys I've Loved Before, while Adrian Oldivar is JM's name in Araw Gabi.

The scene, which was aired on ABS-CBN yesterday, September 18, showed Barbie and JM's characters kissing on the lips while they were surrounded by foam and bubbles.
Unlike other bathtub scenes aired on television and in the movies, Barbie was wearing a two-piece bikini when she entered the tub.
In a short conversation with PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) through Facebook Messenger yesterday, Barbie described how they did the scene.
She said, "Yung scene is parang sinurprise ni Adrian si Mich kasi ang daming nangyayaring di maganda sa Araw Gabi, so, relax muna."
While she was prepared to do the scene, Barbie admitted that she still feels nervous every time she does intimate scenes like this.
She pointed out that JM helped her do their intimate scenes together.
"Prepared naman po pero andun pa din yung kaba everytime.
"But okay naman, kumportable naman po kasi everytime may mga scenes na ganun, limited lang po talaga yung mga tao na nasa set and si JM naman, sobrang comfortable siya ka-eksena.
"Noong first time, he told me po na kapag di ako comfortable, sabihin ko sa kanya.
"But ngayon, sobrang komportable na kami sa isa't isa and alam namin na may respect kami sa isa't isa."
When PEP.ph asked if they will do more intimate scenes together, Barbie only answered, "Yes, and madami pa po na mangyayari. Kaabang-abang and exciting!"
Araw Gabi, which has been airing on ABS-CBN's Kapamilya Gold block since April, marks the first time that JM and Barbie are paired in a teleserye.
It also served as JM's comeback to acting after a three-year hiatus, and Barbie's biggest break in showbiz.
