KC Concepcion admits Sam Milby helped conquer her fear of heights


050511-kc_main.jpgCurrently filming Star Cinema’s romance drama flick Forever and a Day, KC Concepcion admitted she had to do a lot of her own stunts in the movie, which involved scenes of her doing different outdoor activities. The 26 year-old considered herself lucky to be able to experience so many new things.  KC also revealed that her Forever and a Day co-star Sam Milby was a big help in helping her overcome her fears. “Yung mga pinapagawa kasi sa amin is yung mga things na yung ibang artista siguro mauunahan ng takot. Mas matapang kasi si Sam sa akin so ‘pag nakikita kong ginagawa na niya, mas nagagawa ko na rin,” she said during the Forever and a Day pictorial held at the ABS-CBN studios last May 3.

KC admitted that she has always had a fear of heights, which made it difficult to shoot some of the scenes of her ziplining in the movie. “Akala ko okay lang yung takot ko sa heights, hindi pala talaga siya okay. Okay ako sa speed, yung mabibilis, pero ‘pag mataas na, lalo na yung hindi gumagalaw, nakakatakot. Buti yung zipline nga gumagalaw eh,” she shared.

But KC admitted that it was the obstacle course that she had the hardest time with during the filming of the movie. “Yung pinaka-challenge nga sa akin is yung simpleng simpleng obstacle course (laughs), yung may mga ropes. Pero yun yung parang pambata talaga na may mga lubid-lubid at kailangan tatawid ka sa parang mga kahoy....  Pero ‘pag naniniwala si Sam na kaya kong gawin, doon ako nakakakuha ng lakas ng loob talaga (laughs). Naiiyak na nga ako nun eh,” she admitted.

Because of the numerous outdoor scenes, KC admitted it was especially tricky to shoot the white-water rafting sequences because the cast and crew had to adjust to Mother Nature. KC’s love for the water proved to be an asset during this time. “Mahilig naman ako sa tubig. Yun naman ang sa akin, kung si Sam mahilig sa motor, ako tubig talaga. Tapos ayun, matagal ko na siya gusto i-try mag-white water rafting. Ayun, masarap yung feeling na kasi ‘di ba kung sa Hollywood kumbaga nag-construct na sila ng set ng ilog para laging pareho yung kulay ng tubig, ma-pe-predict mo yung agos ng alon. Kami talagang in the raw, talagang natural na natural naming ginawa yung mga eksena na pati sila Direk natatagalan kasi talagang tatawid sila sa ilog at aakyatin nila yung mga bato para i-set-up yung mga camera. Kaya ayaw mo talaga magkamali kasi siyempre mahirap gawin yung mga eksena na ginagawa naming para dito,” she shared.
