Enchong Dee talks about his 'nude' scenes in ‘Once a Princess’

I always smile, I always talk, I always move and sa pelikulang ito yun na siguro yung pinaka-sinurpass kong limitation na you just have to be like a boss, you have to be this intimidating person na kapag nakita ka nila, mararamdaman nila kung ano yung pino-portray mo. And it think that’s the challenge for me at the same time,” he shared.

Enchong said he also learned a valuable lesson when it comes to loving someone because of the movie. “Siguro you cannot justify selfishness with love. Sobrang ganda kasi talaga nung movie. Pero kasi yun si Leonard eh, na ipagpipilitan niya na wala siyang mali kasi the only thing that makes me wrong is love. Pero hindi, porke sasabihin mo lang nagmahal ka lang nasa tama ka? No, minsan mali na yung way mo or means mo sa pag-ibig. Pero papaano kung yung minamahal mo may iba ng mahal? Ang daming branches na puwedeng sabihin na hindi mali siya,” he explained.

The 25-year-old said that because of the extended shooting schedule, it was a challenge to do the movie. “May time na inabutan kami ng summer tapos umabot na din kami ng time na umuulan na. Siguro yun yung mahirap na parang biglang dati ang tagal lumubog ng araw tapos ngayon ang bilis naman lumubog ng araw. So pag time constrained ka, kailangan okay lahat,” he said.

When asked to share one of his most unforgettable scenes while making the movie, Enchong said he was supposed to create the illusion of being completely naked. “Siguro yung embarrassing scene for me yung sinabi sa akin ni direk Laurice (Guillen) na, ‘O kung gusto ‘mo pag magtanggal ng damit dito kunwari yun lang yung suot mo?’ So parang ang hirap itago yung pagtago mo dun sa boxers. Kasi kailangan mo itago lahat pero siyempre may lumalabas labas (laughs),” he added.

After being reunited onscreen with Erich Gonzales, Enchong said he chose to feel excited and not to be pressured having been given another major project by the Kapamilya network. “Sa tingin ko mas masuwerte pa nga kami eh na nalagay kami sa ganitong posisyon. Unang una, yung trailer namin nakakabit sa She’s Dating The Gangster na alam naman natin na sobrang hit. Number two I think since December we were able to gather viewers na talagang loyal sa panunuod ng Star Cinema films at Skylight films. Na nakita nila na ang gaganda eh dire-diretso so sana maaari na maging tuloy tuloy ang panunuod ng mga tao kasi nagustuhan nila ang pelikulang ginagawa ng ABS-CBN and siguro kung nung presscon nung pelikula na ito sasabihin ko natatakot ako pero now siguro nagiging mas kampante ako at nagiging confident ako. Wala akong masyadong kaba na nararamdaman ngayon,” he admitted.

Now that he has also admitted to having a girlfriend, Enchong said he did not have to seek her out. “Parang dumating lang ng kusa kasi sobrang unexpected lahat ng pangyayari and kaya din siguro nung nalaman niyo unexpected lang din. Ako naniniwala ako na hindi mo naman kailangan hanapin eh. Kasi kapag hinanap mo baka mas madaling mawala. Pero kapag dumating sa iyo, baka sundan ko lang,” he said.
