Eugene Domingo on doing Momzillas: 'Parang workshopà It was really like a thesis'


091413-Eugene_Mainphoto.jpgEven after starring in numerous comedy films and receiving awards for her comedic portrayals, Eugene Domingo admitted that her role in her upcoming movie Momzillas was challenging. “As an actor kahit sinabi pang ‘Ang dami mo nang ginawa, nahihirapan ka pa,’ natural bakit hindi naman kami robot dito, on-off, on-off, lahat yan raramdamin mo, irere-create mo at tapos ire-relate mo sa pangyayari sa buhay mo, hindi madali ‘yun,” she said.

According to the award-winning comedy actress, it felt like she went through a workshop because of the series of difficult scenes she needed to do. “Parang workshop nga, totoo, kasi ang dami naming tinatapos na eksena eh, 13 sequences, iba’t ibang emotion, parang workshop. Magca-call time ka pa ng alas otso ng umaga tapos may continuity pa ng damit namin kasi alam niyo pagnag-shooting hindi naman ‘yan kung papaano nangyayari sa pelikula, lalaktawin kung ano ‘yung dapat sa eksena, so it is not easy, so I thought it was really like a thesis for us,” she revealed.

Nonetheless, she said that they were guided well by director Wenn Deramas, saying, “Definite na definite ang mga gusto ni direk Wenn, hindi malabo kaya nga natutumbok namin, kaya kung kami lang dalawa [ni Maricel Soriano] baka kalat-kalat, but with direk Wenn at sa kalayaan na ibinigay niya sa amin, swak na swak.

Uge relayed that she and Maricel Soriano really had to work hand-in-hand in order to achieve the proper comedic timing. “In the case of Maricel, ang tagal pa bago siya nakagawa ng comedy. Kailangan din naming magtulungan para mapuntirya namin kung ano ang tiyempo.

On her favorite scene with Maricel, Uge shared, “Sabi ng character ko ‘Past is past, kalimutan mo na ‘yun, ang mahalaga nakatagpo ka ng kaibigan na sa inaakala mo na kaaway ang kailangan mo lang pala talaga ay makinig.’ ‘Yun ang naging paborito kong eksena namin ni Maricel sa pelikula, ang ganda ganda ng pagkakapaliwanag sa eksenang ‘yun at pagkakasulat ni direk Wenn.”

Eugene said that everyone will truly enjoy Momzillas. “Ang saya [ng movie], ang daming mangyayari, kung magkano man ang ibabayad niyo sa sinehan, baka ulit-ulitin niyo pa because this is a family event. It was not really easy pero ‘yung kasiyahan namin ay tatagos pag napanood nila sa sinehan, promise na promise yan.
