"Aswang siya talaga, literal na kumakain na tao!" she said in an interview with PEP.

The actress plays the role of a yaya on the said movie to Enchong’s character.

“Ito yung typical na anak mayaman dahil ang magulang, puro asikaso ng negosyo so pag may kailangan, pera lahat ang tinatapal. So may isa siyang yaya na mahal na mahal siya not knowing na aswang pala yun," she said.

According to her, Jameson plays the role of Enchong’s cousin with whom her character has no interest whatsoever.

"Wala akong pakialam sa kanya, wala akong pakialam sa lahat. Kay ano lang ako, kay Enchong. So nandiyan ka lang, okay lang, sige. Humanda ka lang, wag ka lang magkamali, ganun ako kay Jameson,” she shared.

Sylvia added, "Basta nakatutok ako kay Enchong, mahal ko eh. So pinoproteksyunan ko. Gusto kong kainin na hindi ko makain, ganun."

Unlike the many aswang films that the public has seen, Sylvia stressed that Nay is actually a horror film with a heart.

"Hindi ito yung typical na aswang na kumakain ng puso, hindi ah. Paiiyakin kayo ng aswang na ito. "Ako, noong tinanggap ko ito, binasa ko yung script, umiiyak ako dahil sa aswang!” she shared.

The 46-year-old star even shared that she cried over her role “Hindi siya yung bastang ginawang aswang for the sake na mapakitang kang aswang, ganon. Iba ito. Kakaiba ito."

Nay is a Cinema One Originals 2017 entry by Bar Boys director Kip Oebanda.
