Cristine Reyes and Jake Cuenca recently shot a swimming pool scene that almost put both of them in danger.
For the upcoming mini-series Precious Hearts Romances presents My Cheating Heart, Cristine is cast as Nadine, a woman who has had a crush on Mio (Jake) for a long time. But he only considers her "one of the boys" for her tomboyish streak. Nadine goes to the United States and when she comes back, she comforts her best friend Mio who is nursing a broken heart. In the process, Nadine plots ways to make him fall in love with her.
In the said scene, Mio picks up Nadine and forces her to jump into the swimming pool.
During the November 28 episode of Entertainment Live, Cristine and Jake recalled what happened on that day.
Cristine: "Ang nangyari binuhat ako ni Jake...sabay kaming tumalon sa pool."
Jake: "Kailangan nagpapanic siya kasi nagkukulitan kami."
Cristine: "Sobrang panic ko, nakalimutan kong mag-inhale bago mag-dive so pagdating dun wala na ’kong air. Naubusan na ko ng hangin tapos nag-panic pa ko dahil ang lalim at nabigla ako."
Jake: "Akala namin kasi talaga umaarte siya, eh."
Cristine: "Bigla na kong sumigaw. Talagang sabi ko, ’Cut, Direk, cut!’ Dun lang nila ako natulungan."
E-Live then showed the video showing how Cristine desperately tried to float in the swimming pool while Jake tried to help his leading lady.
Jake revealed, "Wish ko lang lifeguard ako pero hindi naman ako yung pinakamagaling lumangoy. Sinesave ko siya, eh sa kaka-panic niya, ang nangyari, ako rin yung nalulunod dun...Parang ako na yung nalulunod."
After the near mishap, Cristine and Jake managed to continue shooting their other scenes that day.
Prior to My Cheating Heart, Cristine and Jake were first paired together in Bud Brothers Stupid Cupids. Cristine also topbilled the Sunday afternoon mini-series Your Song presents Babalik Kang Muli.
Precious Heart Romances presents My Cheating Heart is expected to start airing on December 7.
