Edgar Allan Guzman admits getting carried away in kissing scene with Eugene Domingo


081912-edgar-main.jpgAs part of PETA’s theatrical adaptation of the 1980 classic Nora Aunor movie Bona, Edgar Allan Guzman admits he did not have to psyche himself up too much to prepare for his torrid kissing scene with Eugene Domingo, who plays the role of Bona, a spinster call center agent who becomes obsessed with his character Gino, an aspiring talent show contestant. “Kumbaga, linagay ko lang yung sarili ko sa eksena na hindi ko siya mahal pero ginawa ko yun dahil nagulat ako kasi mahal niya ako eh. Kaya ko ginawa yun para ipakita ko sa kanya, mag-kunwari na mahal ko din siya. Tapos dun naga sa story ginagamit ko siya so yung kissing scene naman, nandun lang, linagay ko lang yung sarili ko sa eksena ng hindi ako nailing, hindi ako nahiya and nadala ako sa kissing scene,” he shares.

During the press preview for the play, Eugene and Edgar Allan surprised the audience with the intimacy they showed. Edgar Allan admits he almost got carried away with the scene and continued kissing Eugene even after the lights had dimmed. “Actually nadala nga ako eh. Si Ate Uge kasi talagang para sa akin Ate ko na siya so ilang beses na rin naman kami nagka-trabaho so sa kissing scene wala na sigurong ilangan. Hindi na ako naiilang. Although if ever nailang, mag-so-sorry na lang ako after nun. Nadala ako, nung sinabi kong masarap tapos matamis (laughs.)”  Edgar Allan is not bothered by people who think their kissing scene looked too real. “Sa akin naman kasi, trabaho ito eh. Kumbaga linagay ko na lang yung sarili ko dun sa eksena, hindi ko na inisip na Ate ko siya. Kumbaga andun pa rin yung respeto pero yung trabaho naman kumabag kailangan namin gawin. Hindi ko na inisip yung ate pero alam naman niyang may respeto ako kay Ate Uge,” he says.

When asked to compare kissing Eugene from his Ligo Na U, Lapit Na Me co-star Mercedes Cabral, Edgar Allan indulges the media. “Actually magkaiba talaga kasi alam niyo naman si Mercedes Cabral talagang game na game di ba? talagang dinadala niya yung sarili niya sa eksena. Hindi ko pa masabi ngayon na talagang mas okay yung kay Mercedes or mas okay kay Ate Uge kasi first time namin maghalikan ni Ate Uge ngayon. Nag-kiss na kami nung rehearsal pero kasing grabe nung kanina so hindi ko pa masasabi. Kumbaga sa first night namin na show, kasi dun mas grabe, love scene talaga kami so yun, may love scene kami. May mga damit naman, magtatanggalan pa lang ng damit,” he shares.

Edgar Allan also admits he has learned a lot from working with the Kimmy Dora 2 star. “Ang dami eh, unang-una sa script, kailangan mong basahin lahat tapos kailangan mo i-check lahat kung san ka mag-si-switch ng emotions. Si Ate Uge ang galing niya mag-switch eh. Kahit ako nanunuod, nakikita ko sa kanya, masaya siya sa una tapos bigla siyang magagalit. Hindi mo mapapansin na nag-switch kasi ang ganda nung pacing na ginagawa niya. So yun yung mga nakikita kong mga pwede ko makuha sa kanya.” 

The talented actor also says he is not bothered by the notion that he is only second choice to Walang Hanggan actor Paulo Avelino, who had to pull out of the cast due to conflict in his working schedule. Edgar Allan clarifies that he and Paulo were originally alternates for the role of Gino Sanchez. “Unang-una, magka-alternate talaga kami ni Paulo Avelino. Sa akin, wala akong naramdaman na feeling ko second choice lang ako and ang mas naramdaman ko, nalungkot ako at nasayangan ako kasi kumbaga pangalawang beses namin ni Paulo magkakatrabaho dito. So may bonding na kami, alam na namin yung ugali ng isa’t isa. ang naramdaman ko sayang kasi kumbaga mas magiging close kami dito pag natuloy yung magka-alternate kami.” 

Catch Eugene Domingo and Edgar Allan Guzman in the stage adaptation of Bona which will run from August 24 to September 23 at the PETA Theater Center.
