Showbiz Centralhost Raymond Guttierrez visited the set of GMA-7's Asero to get the latest from the main character of the show—his twinbrother, Richard Gutierrez.
The main topic in the interview, of course, was aboutRichard's newest leading lady, Heart Evangelista. Asero director Mark Reyes spilled the beans on Richard by sharingwith Raymond an incident which involved a sudden decision made by Richard thatnearly made him miss his flight. What exactly did he do?
"I wanted to give something to Heart," Richard revealed, "napuwede niyang itago, you know, as a symbol doon sa pinagsamahan namin sa Dubai.So last minute, noong pasakay na kami sa eroplano, e, paglingon nilang lahat,nawawala ako!"
So where did rush to?
Richard answered, "Eto na ngayon ako, tumatakbo. Bibili akong souvenir sa tindahan. So ako na yung last passenger na pumasok sa eroplano.Dala-dala ko yung camel [stuffed toy] na souvenir ko para kay Heart."
BELLY DANCING WOWSRICHARD. Heart's skills as a belly dancer got the attention of everyone onthe set of Asero, especially the men.It's the first time Heart actually has done something like this so how didRichard feel when he saw Heart "belly dance" for the first time?
"Nandoon ako, habang nire-rehearse," Richard related. "Nasaisang tent kami sa disyerto at tinuturuan siyang mag-belly dancing. So lahatkami, nandoon sa tent. ‘Tapos instantly, she got it. She got the moves andproud na proud yung teacher niya."
Recreating the look of an astounded person, Richard added,"Lahat kami naka-ganyan [nakatingin], oh!"
THE STUNTS. Whatwould an action series be without stunts? Raymond asked what stunts his brotherdid during their Dubai taping.
"Isa siguro sa memorable stunts na ginawa ko, e, yung pag-driveko sa desert ng Dubai using a 4x4," Richard related. Before Raymond can react,he quickly added, "It looks easy, okay. ‘Pag nandoon ka, parang ‘Wow, angdali,' ganyan. Pero ‘pag ikaw nagda-drive, e, napakahirap pala mag-drive sadisyerto."
"Lumulubog ba yung kotse?" Raymond curiously asked.His brother answered, "Lumulubog, at kailanganmarunong kang magbasa ng desert dunes kung hindi, e, mai-stranded kayo! So yunna nga ang nangyari, na-stranded kami a couple of times kasi mahirap yungterrain. Pero okay naman, enjoy!"
