Jennylyn Mercado on working with John Lloyd Cruz: ‘Grabe ‘yung pressure’
040816-JennylynLloyd_PUSH.jpgJennylyn Mercardo admitted that she feels pressured being paired with John Lloyd Cruz for the first time in the new Star Cinema movie Just the 3 of Us. ”Oo naman grabe ‘yung pressure pero siyempre ayokong mag-expect ng kahit ano. Hindi rin ako nagi-expect ng kahit ano pero siyempre ‘yung mga ginawa niyang pelikula puro blockbusters so nakakatakot baka hindi ko mapantayan,” she said in an interview with the press on the set of the movie.

She added that it had been tough to adjust initially. “Medyo matagal po talaga akong nakakapag-adjust, hindi lang sa set, sa lahat ng nangyayari sa buhay ko.”

Jennylyn plays the role of CJ, a ground stewardess. According to the actress, her role is far different from the ones she played before. “Para sa akin kasi it’s different usually di ba ‘yung natatapos na magkaka-family, magkaka-baby. Ito magsisimula siya ng may baby, anong gagawin niyo? Tapos ‘yung character ko naman iba rin kasi first time kung gumawa ng character na dumating na sa point na ano nababaliw na siya, ganyan lumoka-loka na.”

On her love scene with John Lloyd in the film, she relayed, “Ano naman eh maganda ‘yung pagkakagawa ni direk (Cathy Garcia-Molina). Medyo intense pero maganda. Tulad nong sabi ni direk si John Lloyd very gentle talaga siya, takot siyang hawakan ako.” 

Jennylyn further shared that it has been a great experience working with direk Cathy. “Sobrang saya ng set namin eh. Ano siya laging nakatawa, bungisngis. Ang dami kong natutunan kay direk mula sa maliliit na detalye hanggang sa malalaki, talagang nong nag-shooting ako tapos nag-taping ako sabi ng mga kasama ko ‘Aba sinusunod mo na ‘yung mga utos ni direk sa’yo, nadala mo na hanggang taping.’ So ibig sabihin magaling na director at it’s a good sign na madami talaga akong nagra-grab sa kanya na mga techniques na kung anu-ano, ang dami po talaga at nagpapasalamat ako na nakatrabaho ko ang isang magaling na director,” she stated.

The actress also previously worked with Kapamilya actors Sam Milby and Jericho Rosales. When asked if she makes comparisons of the three actors, she replied, “Ayokong mag compare, magkakaiba silang tatlo, makakaiba talaga, totally different, magkakaiba ‘yung personalities.”

Just the 3 of Us is showing on April 27 in cinemas nationwide.
