Kim Chiu is looking forward to working with Vilma Santos in the movie, 'The Healing.'
Kim Chiu was admittedly star-struck when she finally met Batangas Governor Vilma Santos during the story conference of their movie The Healing
last August 23 at the ABS-CBN compound. She could hardly believe that it has been a year since she reenacted a scene from The Dolzura Cortez
story for Vilma’s TV special. Her portrayal was so remarkable that it paved the way for them to have a movie together.
Adding to Kim’s excitement for this huge project is the fact that Vilma is very vocal about her admiration of the young star’s accomplishments in life. “Ito na naman ako, wala akong masabi kanina pa. Masaya
and excited ako.
It’s something new for me to do a horror movie under Star Cinema and to work with Ate
Vi. Nahihiya ako sa kanya
. First time ko din makakatrabaho si Direk
Chito Roño. Magaling siya sa mga
suspense and horror movies so excited ako. Nakakatuwa
touch na ako ang napili para sa
movie na ito.
Although she’s still overwhelmed by Vilma’s mere presence, Kim is looking forward to their bonding time on the set once they start shooting in October. “Busog na busog naman ako sa papuri. Alam ko madami akong matututunan sa
shooting namin, sa
personal life at sa pag-arte kasi siyempre matalinong-matalino si Ate
Vi. Habang matagal kaming magkasama, hindi lang yung alam ko ngayon sa buhay, siguradong mas malalim pa yung matututunan ko
Kim added that she won’t really miss having a love team in this movie since she already has enough leading men in her ongoing soap, My Binondo Girl
. “Hindi ko pa alam kung kailan ako magkakaroon ng
movie na iba naman ang
leading man. Pero sa ngayon ang
focus ko muna sa
movie namin ni Ate
Vi. First time ako gagawa ng
horror movie na may halong kwento tungkol sa
faith healing. Medyo mahahati yung oras ko dahil sa My Binondo Girl, pero masaya naman ako dahil madaming
work at blessings ang dumadating. At siyempre pagbubutihan ko ito sa lahat ng ginagawa ko.
