Kim Chiu on Vilma Santos: 'Nakaka-touch na ako ang napili niya para sa movie'


082711-kim-main.jpgKim 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 and nakaka-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.
