Sarah Geronimo and Gerald Anderson have finally started shooting their second movie together on location at the Manila Seedling Bank in Quezon City last September 6. Although they’re still in the process of adjusting to their new characters, the two were obviously more comfortable with each other off cam. In fact, they don’t mind being romantically linked to each other this time around. “Link na link na nga kami eh. Pero siyempre hindi mo maiiwasan na ganyan kasi magkatrabaho kami sa pelikula,” said Sarah.
Gerald added that he’s looking forward to getting to know Sarah better in the next few weeks of their shoot. “Oo naman po, [ready ako na ma-link kay Sarah]. Halos three times a week kaming magkasama dito sa bagong movie. Hindi maiiwasan yung ma-link kami sa isa’t isa so expected na namin ‘yan. On my part, palagi kami magkasama sa trabaho namin so gusto ko rin naman siya makilala ng mas malalim. Basta I am really happy na naka-partner ko si Sarah.”
When asked about the story of their new movie, Sarah shared that she plays a disc jockey who’s afraid to fall in love and get hurt again. “Ako dito si DJ Heidi. Ang aking mga pinagdaanan dito, parang in a way naging man-hater ng konti. Ayoko yung mga ugali ng lalaki na babaero. Tapos hindi siya tipikal na role na ginagawa ko na hindi pa naka-experience ng first love. Kumbaga may experience na yung character ko dito.”
Gerald further shared that his role is far from what he did in Catch Me…I’m In Love. “Ako dito si Andrew. Down-to-earth na happy-go-lucky kind of guy. Sobrang layo kay Eric na larger than life at anak ng presidente. Sobrang hirap kasi nag-a-adjust pa kami, sobrang layo talaga sa first movie namin. Pero feeling ko makukuha din namin. So dapat abangan kung paano magka-clash yung dalawa, kung paano kami mai-in love at kung paano kami magkaka-developan sa movie.”
Despite the pressure to maintain the success of their team-up, Sarah said that she’d rather enjoy the new things that she would experience through this project. “Siyempre nandun yung kaba kasi ine-expect ng tao na sana malagpasan or mapantayan man lang yung nagawa namin sa Catch Me...I’m In Love. Pero tulad ng ibang movie na ginawa ko, mahirap magpadala sa pressure na kailangang maging successful yung project. So ine-enjoy na lang namin at director naman namin si Direk Raz dela Torre (one of the writers of A Very Special Love and You Changed My Life). Nagtutulungan kami dito para mapaganda talaga yung movie.”
