Derek Ramsay on doing love scene with Andi Eigenmann in A Secret Affair: “I manhandled her!”

Derek Ramsay on being a “mentor” in TV5’s Artista Academy: “I always wanna see people grow, I wanna see people get better, wanna see people succeed. I don’t wanna disrespect someone... I give advice. If somebody asks advice, I’d give it.”


Maiinit na love scenes ang gagawin ng hunky actor na si Derek Ramsay sa love-triangle, adult-romance movie na A Secret Affair.

Sabi niya, “Alam mo... pag nakita mo sa screen, parang ang ganda… sensual, so romantic...

"But it’s totally different kapag ginagawa mo na."

Yet, for him, doing passionate love scenes in front of the cameras is no easy task.

Sabi ng aktor, “Ang daming tumatakbo sa isip mo, e. Siyempre, kailangan mong irespeto yung babaeng ka-arte mo.

“And then you have the lights… you have the voice cues… the cameras.

“And then you have the people watching... so it’s really difficult.”

Nakausap ng PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) sa grand presscon ng A Secret Affair kagani, October 15, sa City Best Restaurant, along Tomas Morato Ave., Quezon City.

TWO LEADING LADIES. Makakasama ni Derek sa pelikula ang dalawa sa itinuturing na pinakamagandang aktres sa industriya na sina Anne Curtis at Andi Eigenmann.

Pagmamalaki ni Derek, “I have the most beautiful women. I mean, it helps.

“In this movie, siguro mas madali siya kasi nagawa ko na before.”

Ang tinutukoy niya ay ang love-triangle movie na No Other Woman (2011), kung saan nakapareha niya sina Anne at Cristine Reyes.

Patuloy niya, “And kami ni Anne, nagkatrabaho na... and kilala na namin ang isa’t isa.

“With Andi naman, parang I was guiding her.”



DOING LOVE SCENES. Sa mga love scenes na kasama si Andi, ginagabayan daw niya ang kapareha.

Sabi ng 32-year-old actor, “Humihingi siya ng advice… nagtatanong, so parang naging ano ako, e... mentor.

“So, nakalimutan mo na yung hirap na kailangan mong gawin sa eksena.

“I’m more worried about taking care of her.”

Paano niya ihahambing ang pakikipag-love scene, separately kina Anne, 27, at Andi, 22?

Tugon ni Derek, “With Anne, yung scenes namin, madali nga, e. Romantic… sensual—that’s just me in real life.

“But yung kay Andi, sabi ko nga, ‘Andi, itodo na natin, kasi kung magte-take two, take three, it gets even more awkward.’

“So, buhos na lahat ‘yan.

"And then it was just... we both had to be very aggressive!"

Ibinunyag ni Derek na sinubukan nila ni Andi na tumungga ng alak noong minsan silang nagsu-shooting.

“So ako, I took a shot. Si Andi, took a shot.

“Hindi pala marunong mag-shot si Andi, by the way.

“Yeah, she doesn’t take shots!” natatawang banggit ng aktor.

Ano nangyari pagkatapos?

“Pag ‘Action!’ ni Direk [Nuel Naval], wala… talagang parang naglalaro ako ng sport. Binuhat ko na lang [si Andi]. I manhandled her!” pagbibiro ni Derek.

“A kid! She’s really a kid!

“She really is! She really is!

“Pag nagkuwento siya, batang-bata!

“At the same time, ang mga pananaw niya sa buhay, ang lalim

“So, nakakaaliw nga, e. Nakakatanggal ng stress pag kausap mo siya. Parang nasa sarili siyang mundo.

“Sabi ko nga, ‘Andi, hindi mo pa nga natatapos yung gusto mong sabihin, may sinasabi ka na?’

“We joke about it on the set... that she’s crazy, that... yes... grabe! Napaka...

“She’s a very, very strong woman,” pagtukoy ni Derek sa single mom na si Andi.

“I think not a lot of people bounce back from what she experienced.

“She’s a strong woman, very proud of her baby, very proud of her career and what she’s accomplished."

Dagdag ni Derek, “Sasabihin ko na ‘to: She will shine in this movie and a lot of people will be proud of what she’s done here.

“Kasi, sabi nga, marami siyang haters. Pero sabi ko, ‘Andi, don’t mind those things.’

“They have to see this film. They’re gonna be surprised. They gonna adore her kasi ang galing niya!”

DEREK’S KIND OF WOMAN. Has Andi Eigenmann got the characteristics he’d fall in love with?

“That’s a hard question to answer,” sabi ni Derek.

“She is a brilliant young lady. She’s got great characteristics for any man, I think would fall in love with.

“But it’s hard to answer that question, especially... I’m somebody that... we don’t look at it that way.

“Because we’re grown up, we’re professionals. That is the last thing in our heads. We want to do our work.

"But if I’ve met Andi... she’s got the characteristics of a woman I’d fall in love with.”



MORE INTENSE. Pagdating naman kay Anne, ayon kay Derek, seryoso sa trabaho ang aktres at ngayon pa lang daw niya ito nakikilala nang husto.

“We have worked before, but I discovered a lot of stuff with Anne in this film.

“Anne is now more intense, a lot deeper with her character here.

“We didn’t even get much time to talk on the set, kasi napaka-in touch niya talaga sa character niya.

“So, pag nakita mong ganun, you give her space.

“But it’s nice that she comes to me for advice and, yeah, we’re a team here!” sambit pa ni Derek.



ARTISTA ACADEMY. Magbibigay si Derek ng pagsubok sa tatlong babaeng top finalists ng reality artista search ng TV5, ang Artista Academy.

Tatampukan ni Derek ang mga short films na kasama ang mga finalist na sina Sophie Albert, Shaira Mae, at Nicole Morales.

Ang pag-arte ng mga babaeng nasa “honor roll” ang magsisilbing “final exams” nila.

Nagpahayag si Derek ng kanyang saloobin hinggil sa pagiging isang “mentor.”

Paglilinaw niya, “I don’t know if I should be called a mentor, but I love seeing people get better at anything.

“I always wanna see people grow, I wanna see people get better, wanna see people succeed.

“I don’t wanna disrespect someone... I give advice. If somebody asks advice, I’d give it.

Sa mga lalaking finalists naman na sina Vin Abrenica, Akihiro Blanco, at Mark Neumann, ang makakaeksena nila sa short film na gagawin ay ang Superstar na si Nora Aunor.



BEING A KAPATID’ Sa maikling panahon ni Derek sa TV5 pagkagaling niya ng ABS-CBN, binigyan kaagad siya ng mga challenging projects.

“Am I happy with TV5? I’m very happy!” tahasang sambit ni Derek.

“I’ll never forget what ABS-CBN did for me, but I think I’m... no, I don’t think...

“I’m sure I made the the right decision.

“I’m really enjoying my stay in TV5. I did the Olympics, did the Amazing Race.

“And now I’m fulfilling every boy’s dream of being a superhero.”

Ang tinutukoy ni Derek ay ang kanyang kauna-unahang teleserye sa TV5, ang Kidlat.
