Although he’s grateful for his upcoming project, Hashtags member Ronnie Alonte expressed certain qualms about the theme of his newest movie.
“Kaya nga natatakot nga ako eh. Hindi ko pa alam kung nakikita nila na bagay ako sa mga ganong tipo ng pelikula pero para sa akin ang mas gusto ko talaga action,” said Ronnie in an exclusive with PUSH during the pictorial of their upcoming film Bloody Crayons.
After starring in two Metro Manila Film Festival entries last year, Ronnie is set to star in his third film this coming July as part of the suspense-thriller Bloody Crayons.
“Pero siguro, sila naman ito eh. Kung nakikitaan naman nila na doon ako bagay, magtitiwala nalang ako,” he quickly added.
Despite his concern, the A Love to Last star underscored that he is grateful for the opportunity that was given to him.
“Noong una nagulat kasi suspense nanaman galing Seklusyon. Tapos ito na naman gagawa nanaman ako ng mahirap na project. Pero sobrang saya naman kasi hindi naman ako agad na-tengga after ng dalawang movie. Masaya ako,” he shared.
Like the other stars, Ronnie unabashedly shared that he didn’t expect to become part of the movie’s final cast.
“Buti nga eh. Kasi palit palit na ito ng artista. Dumating na ito sa akin tapos nawala tapos dumating nanaman ulit. Parang ganon ang nangyari,” he said.
The young star took pride in what he and his co-stars Janella Salvador, Elmo Magalona, Sofia Andres, Diego Loyzaga, Maris Racal, Jane Oineza, Empoy Marquez, and Yves Flores did in the Topel Lee flick.
“Sobrang maipagmamalaki ko kung ano ang ginawa namin sa shooting kasi sobrang hirap. May mga action scenes tapos may mga laglag pa. Masaya, na-enjoy na masakit,” he shared.
Did he get injured at any point while shooting the film?
“Meron ako sa harness parang bumaliktad ako. Tumama ‘yung likod ko. Buti naman hindi masyadong malalim ang pagkakaganon. Basta makikita niyo ang eksena na ‘yun,” he said.
Thankfully that incident was so minor that he didn’t need to go to the hospital.
About his role, Ronnie explained that he plays the role of John, the stranger in the group. Ronnie immediately pointed out that Bloody Crayons is totally different from Seklusyon.
“‘Yung sa Seklusyon kasi more on demonyo ang pumapatay samin. Dito naman, more on barkada and isa sa amin ang pumapatay. So magkaibang-magkaiba,” he ended.
Catch Ronnie and his co-stars Janella Salvador, Elmo Magalona, Sofia Andres, Diego Loyzaga, Maris Racal, Jane Oineza, Empoy Marquez and Yves Flores in the Topel Lee flick Bloody Crayons starting July 12 in cinemas nationwide.
