Director Antoinette Jadaone remarked that she enjoyed working in the new ABS-CBN series Since I Found You. “Sobrang okay ‘yung show kasi una, hindi kami nagmamadali so parang binigyan kami ng time to do the scenes, so binigyan nila ako ng time to prepare, so very grateful ako kapag nabibigyan ako ng time para gawin ‘yung projects, na may time akong busisiin, may time akong magkamali at may time na tamain ‘yung mga mali,” she said in an interview with PUSH.
The director admitted that she felt pressured working with the five main stars of the soap - Piolo Pascual, Arci Munoz, JC de Vera, Alessandra de Rossi and Empoy Marquez. “Napre-pressure ako na kinakabahan ako na mag-handle ng actors especially actors na dating napapanood ko lang pero ayon, parang mare-realize mo na parang nasa set ka na, ano rin sila eh actors din sila na kailangan ng guidance at director,” she stated.
Aside from directing the series, the director also talked about the movie she worked with James Reid and Nadine Lustre. The director and the love team were recently embroiled in a controversy after Direk Antoinette wrote a cryptic blog about a certain film, which netizens believed was about JaDine. Though they were involved in an issue, the director remarked that all is well between her and the couple. “Okay naman na kami kasi ayon parang madaling malunod kapag makikinig ka sa mga taong hindi mo naman kilala. At least kung kami, okay naman kami, personally, okay” she said. The director also said that all is good between her and director Cathy Garcia-Molina who was involved in an issue recently because of tweeting about JaDine. Direk Cathy mentioned Direk Antoinette in one of her tweets. “Nakausap na siya ni Dan (Villegas), okay naman kami we love Direk Cathy,” she stated.
