Toni Gonzaga describes John Lloyd Cruz as a collaborative co-star


Toni Gonzaga described her experience doing the movie My Amnesia Girl as refreshing mainly for two reasons; one is her new leading man John Lloyd Cruz and the other is the plot of the movie itself. "Bago itong lahat para sa akin dahil first time naming magkakatrabaho ni John Lloyd. Bago ang partnership at bago rin 'lsquo;yung feel ng pelikula. My Amnesia Girl is a romantic comedy pero 'lsquo;yung iniisip ng mga taong tatakbuhin ng story based on the title, magugulat ang lahat kasi it'rsquo;s more than the amnesia ang mata-tackle."

When asked how she would describe John Lloyd as a leading man, Toni took some time to come up with the right word. "Hindi ako makaisip ng right adjective, ha ha ha! Exciting'hellip;'rsquo;yun!" The actress confessed that she was surprised that she was given the chance to do a movie with the bankable screen heartthrob sooner that she expected. "Hindi ko ine-expect na magkakasama kami ni John Lloyd sa pelikula at hindi ko rin inexpect na ganitong story 'lsquo;yung gagawin namin. Kaya tuwing may shooting nae-excite ako. Feeling ko ganun din naman siya kasi tuwing maguusap kami ikinukwento niya na natutuwa siya sa nagiging flow nung pelikula. Sabay kami sa ganung pakiramdam."

Doing a single scene with John Lloyd, one of the most acclaimed actors of his generation, would seem to be an intimidating task for any star. However for Toni, John Lloyd is not intimidating but rather a very collaborative co-star. "Malaki ang naitulong niya sa akin lalo na sa mga drama scenes. Bukod sa napakagaling niyang actor, he is also a giver. Hindi ka niya iiwan sa eksena. Kahit na ako 'lsquo;yung nasa camera, may ibibigay siya para maramdaman ko 'lsquo;yung eksena. Kasabay mo siya sa journey ng character mo."

As early as now respective fans of Toni and John Lloyd, who have both proven box office success with their previous films, are predicting that My Amnesia Girl will be a crowd drawer. But Toni would rather not think about the pressure. "Hindi ko naman iniisip 'lsquo;yun kasi kapag ganun baka mas lalo lang akong ma-pressure. Ang goal lang naman talaga namin is makapagbigay sa mga tao ng bago, maging interesting para sa lahat."
