Megastar Sharon Cuneta is now in London for the filming ofStar Cinema's Caregiver, directed by Chito Roño and co-starring JohnEstrada and Makisig Morales. Sharon left April 4, and the following day,April 5, she already started filming.
PEP editor-in-chief Jo-Ann Maglipon sent a text message toSharon this morning, April 16, thru her manager Sandra Chavez as well as directly toSharon herself, on the off-chance that the text would get to the Megastar.Happily, by 3:01 p.m. Manila time, Sharon replied.
Here's Sharon's text message to Jo-Ann that should beinteresting to all Sharonians and movie buffs:
"Since we started filming April 5, have had only 1 dayoff—and we've been shooting from morning, till more often than not, pastmidnight, sometimes way past it. Haven't had a decent 6-8 hrs sleep since. Havebeen averaging 2-3. Pag naka-4 talon na! Pero rarely.
"Felt the flu coming on and once I recognized symptoms, Iimmediately made contra with zithro and had to pair with medrol pa cos paos na!Seems to have worked. But puyat and STRESS soooo bad.
"London weather unbelievably unpredictable and harsh once itdoes its thing—which is to say—in a span of 15 to 20 minutes. Kulang na langmag-autumn para ma-complete mo ang 4 seasons! Dagdagan mo pa ng hail at ulan!Tapos habang naninigas ka sa pagka-wet and cold, aba, spring na! ‘Taposmaglalakad ka pa ng 5 minutes, summer na pero nanginginig ka pa rin! Hahaha!Not helping us at all.
"Babagsak na kami ng crew sa pagod. Parang I'm in thetwilight zone. Di na yata ako uulit mag-shoot sa Europe!!! Sobra mahal kayapati ‘buhay' mo naka-budget!!! Hahaha! Turning out to be a beautiful one,though.
"Shooting a highlight this morning at theairport—ayayayayayay!!! Touching ba? Aakyat na naman ang stress level ko! Say aprayer for me will you?"
That was it. And now prayers and best wishes from PEP, ofcourse, go to Sharon in this promising story about an OFW (Overseas FilipinoWorker) that will be the Megastar's first film on the big screen after fouryears.
