Kahit sanay na si Anne Curtis sa paggawa ng maiinit na love scenes sa pelikula, aminado siyang pinakagrabe na yata ang ginawa niya sa pelikulang Blood Ransom, kung saan ang ka-partner niya ay ang Hollywood actor na si Alexander Dreymon.
Ang Blood Ransom ang kauna-unahang international indie movie na tinapos ng Kapamilya actress sa Los Angeles, California, dalawang taon na ang nakalilipas, ngunit ngayon pa lang ito ipapalabas sa ating mga sinehan simula October 29.
Samantala, sa October 31 naman ito nakatakdang ipalabas sa North America.
Nang makausap si Alexander ng PEP. ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) at ng ilang miyembro ng entertainment media sa presscon ng pelikula sa Discovery Suites, Pasig City, noong October 9, isa sa mga itinanong sa kanya ay tungkol sa lumalagablab nilang eksena ni Anne.
Napapangiting pahayag ni Drey (palayaw ni Alexander), "I made her understand that there should be as little pressure as possible.
"Of course, we needed to proceed with the scene, but at the same time, she needed to be comfortable in it, because otherwise, there will be no scene.
"I just made sure that there’s a robe waiting for her every time that Direk Francis [de la Torre] said cut, and that she won’t be exposed.
"There’s people around, you know. There’s the director, there’s also the crew.
"It’s hard for a girl to be put in that situation.
"So I hope I made her comfortable as possible."
SHOOTING A SEXY SCENE. Kumusta naman ang kanyang pakiramdam habang ginagawa nila ni Anne ang sexy scenes, na isa sa highlights ng pelikula?
Kaswal na sagot ng Hollywood actor, "Well, you know, contrary to what many people might think, filming a sexy scene on set is extremely technical.
"There’s a lot of people around, you get some tips on every angle, you know, it’s just part of the process, just another day of work.
"Of course, it’s great when you’re doing it with Anne Curtis, but it’s still about getting the scene done..."
IMPRESSIONS OF ANNE. Pagkatapos makunan ang kanilang love scene, ano nga ba ang naging impresiyon niya sa Kapamilya actress?
Patanong na sagot niya, "Do you mean if my image of her has changed after the love scene?
"No, not really, it’s the same.
"I know that she just played the part, and in fact, I was more concerned about how she was feeling after the scene.
"That’s why I told you that I had to make her comfortable."
IS ANNE READY FOR HOLLYWOOD? Sa palagay niya, ano ang kaibahan ni Anne sa ibang aktres na nakatrabaho na niya sa Hollywood?
Tugon ni Alexander, "Knowing she’s a Filipina makes it more beautiful.
"Apart from that, there’s really no difference.
"I really don’t know anything about Anne from the start.
"I didn’t even know that she’s a big star here.
"I really feel honored, yeah, I am.
"Do I think she’s ready for Hollywood? Yeah, of course, but is Hollywood ready for her?" pagbibiro pa niya.
Dugtong pa niya, "She’s a very generous actress.
"And as I’ve said before, it’s great to work with her, I really wish that this is not the last time I will work with her.
"But I also hope I can meet other Filipino actors. That would be great, too."
WILLING TO DO PINOY MOVIES. Paano kung may local producer na mag-alok sa kanya na gumawa ng isang Filipino movie, handa ba siyang tanggapin ito?
Aniya, "We’ll see, why not?
"If the story is okay, and if there’s no problem as to the negotiations, the location, I would be glad to do so.
"I think, I’m starting to be interested in your country because you guys are great!"
STORYLINE. Tungkol naman sa pelikula, ang ipinagmamalaki nga raw nila ni Anne ay ang kakaibang kuwento nito.
Sabi ni Drey, "Yeah, it’s the storyline—the chase, the danger, the action.
"Here, I play Crystal’s driver. (Anne Curtis plays Crystal). She gets kidnapped, so I go and save her.
"Something happens to her and she doesn’t want to go back to her old life.
"So, we go on the run."
Nagkomento rin si Drey tungkol sa kanilng direktor.
"Director Francis is a great director ’cause he gives you a lot of space as an actor.
"He’s very open to new ideas, but at the same time, he knows exactly what story to tell, he was pretty much guiding us, so I’m very happy."
