Yen Santos admits she was initially intimidated working with Albert Martinez


082715-yensantos_PUSH.jpgYen Santos admitted that she got initially intimidated while working with Albert Martinez in the upcoming Kapamilya soap All Of Me. In an interview with the actress at the special screening of the series, she relayed, “Nong una po talaga sobrang na-intimidate ako sa kanya. Hindi po dahil parang nailang ako, na-intimidate po ako dahil una na-star struck po ako sa kanya. Isa po siya sa mga veteran actors dito at naisip ko po na kailangan ko pong sumabay sa kanya.”

When it comes to their romantic scenes in the series, Yen shared that they have undergone workshops so that they will be more comfortable working together. “’Yun nag-workshop po kaming dalawa para pagdating sa mga eksena hindi na kami… wala ng ilangan, wala ng wall para pagdating sa eksena sobrang komportable kami at tsaka nag-uusap po talaga kami sa set na hinahayaan niya po akong makilala ko siya para wala po talagang ilangan.”

Yen plays the role of Lena who falls in love a man named Manuel (Albert Martinez) who lost his wife Diana (Ina Raymundo) due to an illness. Yen added that their workshops together have really helped them established an onscreen connection especially that they would be portraying as lovers in the teleserye. “Ako lang po talaga nong first time ko siyang na-meet sa workshop po sobrang nanginginig po ‘yung kamay ko hanggang sa nakuha po namin kung paano kami mag-connect, kaming dalawa,” she said.

Yen is also working alongside JM de Guzman in the series. It is their first time working together and the actress has nothing but good words for the actor. “First time po naming makapag-work. Okay naman po siya, ang galing po talaga niya kapag tiningnan mo talaga siya sa mata makakahugot ka na ng emosyon sa kanya eh mabait po siya at makulit din kaya lang madalas tahimik din.”

JM is also playing the role of Manuel when the character is magically transformed into his younger self. When asked if she is uncomfortable doing romantic scenes with JM knowing that the latter has a girlfriend, Yen replied, “Hindi naman. Kami talaga pagdating naman sa work trabaho eh. Kung ano ‘yung mga kailangan naming gawin sa work namin hanggang don lang ‘yun.”
