LJ Reyes on her role in Intoy Syokoy: “Bago siya sa akin. Talagang na-pressure ako sa script... Actually, noong una, parang kinakabahan pa ako. Pero ngayon, kapag binabasa ko yung script, ang ganda niya, nai-inspire na ako sa story.”


Kasama si LJ Reyes sa indie film na Intoy Syokoy na isa sa mga official entries para sa Cinemalaya ngayong taon.

Ang pelikula ay isinulat ng Palanca award-winning writer na si Gerry Gracio at mula sa direksiyon ni Lemuel Lorca.

Ang producer ng pelikula ay sina Boy Abunda at Boy So.

Nang makausap ng PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) si LJ sa telepono, masaya nitong ibinalita na nakapag-workshop na siya at iba pang cast ng pelikula.

Ang isa sa bida ng pelikula ay ang Kapamilya actor na si JM de Guzman.

Ayon kay LJ, “Yung workshop, more on parang hinimay yung character namin ni JM.

“Nakaka-pressure kasi si Tito Pen Medina… ang galing niya!”

Sa workshop daw unang beses nakilala ng Kapusong si LJ ang Kapamilyang si JM.

Kuwento pa ng StarStruck alumna, “Feeling ko naman, okay naman siyang makatrabaho. Magaling naman si JM.”

Makakasama rin daw nila sa Intoy Syokoy si Joross Gamboa kunsaan magkakaibigan ang mga karakter nila.

Sila ni JM ang magkapareha sa pelikula.

Ayon pa kay LJ, “Oo, akala ko, the movie talks more about the place. Pero it’s a romantic film din pala.”

Natawa si LJ nang tanungin namin kung may love scene sila ni JM.

“Meron! Kay JM isa, pero maraming love scenes kasi yung character ko, may pagka-pokpok.”

MOST DARING. Aminado si LJ na ito ang pinaka-daring na role na gagawin niya.

“Actually, noong sinabi sa akin nila Kuya Perry [Lansigan, LJ’s manager] yung movie, noong nabasa ko, parang hindi pa ako kumportable. Pero keri naman.

“Natatawa ako na kinakabahan. May mga love scene kasi sa customers!

“Noong nag-uusap kami ni Tito Pen, sinabi ko na hindi ako kumportable.

“Sabi niya, ‘Aalagaan ka naman ng director mo, sabihin mo lang.”

Dagdag pa ni LJ, “Bago siya sa akin. Talagang na-pressure ako sa script.

“’Tapos noong makita ko pa, ang producers namin, sina Kuya Boy Abunda at Mr. Boy So.

“Pero suwerte ko kasi tinutukan nila ang script kaya maganda talaga.

“Actually, noong una, parang kinakabahan pa ako.

“Pero ngayon, kapag binabasa ko yung script, ang ganda niya, nai-inspire na ako sa story.”

Posible kaya na ito na ang simula ng pagtanggap niya ng mas daring o mature roles.

“Feeling ko,” sabi ni LJ.

“Siyempre, kapag nasubukan mo na yun… hindi naman tuluy-tuloy.

“Hindi ko naman sinasabi na lahat na lang ng i-offer na daring, tatanggapin agad.

“Siyempre, kailangan maganda talaga ang kuwento.”

Napi-pressure na raw si LJ ngayon pa lang dahil may mga nagsasabi na posibleng makasungkit na naman siya ng award sa Cinemalaya dahil sa pagganap niya sa Intoy Syokoy.

Minsan nang nanalo si LJ sa Cinemalaya bilang Best Supporting Actress para sa pelikulang The Leaving (2010).

Pero ayon sa young actress, “Naku, ayoko ng ganyan! Ayokong umasa.

“Hindi ko iniisip na ganyan. Napi-pressure ako.

“Unang-una, ang iniisip ko lang, natsa-challenge ako sa character, sa role. Ayokong isipin pa ang iba.”

THE GOOD DAUGHTER. Samantala, masaya naman si LJ sa kanilang pang-hapong serye sa GMA-7, ang The Good Daughter.

“Ang alam ko, na-extend na siya. Hindi ko lang alam kung ilang weeks.

“Pero nakakatuwa talaga kasi yung mga reviews, yung rating, hindi siya iniiwan ng tao,” sabi niya.

Personally, masaya si LJ sa mga feedback na natatanggap niya kahit kontrabida ang role niya rito.

“Natutuwa ako. Lalo na ngayon na nararamdaman ko na kaya ko namang umarte.

“Although, marami pa akong dapat matutunan. At least, iba-ibang role ang nagagawa ko.

“Ito ngang The Good Daughter ‘tapos yung indie [film] na pokpok naman ako.”

Hindi raw makalimutan ni LJ ang isang eksena niya sa The Good Daughter na kinailangan niyang sampalin nang totoo si Raymond Bagatsing.

“Yung eksena na yun, natakot ako kasi nasampal ko talaga si Tito Raymond.

“Sabi ko, dayain na lang namin. Sabi niya, totohanin ko raw.

“E, alam ko, masakit akong manampal.

“Sabi niya noong magawa na namin, yun na raw yata ang isa sa pinaka-masakit na sampal na natikman niya.

“E, baldado pa siya [sa serye], hindi siya puwedeng umiwas!” natatawang kuwento ni LJ.
