JC De Vera on doing a love scene with Kim Chiu: ‘Na-intimidate ako sa kanya’


After his movie One Great Love won the Third Best Picture award at the recent Metro Manila Film Festival’s Gabi ng Parangal, JC De Vera shared his experience working with leading lady Kim Chiu who was doing her most mature and intimate scenes on camera to date. “Serious siya. Hindi siya yung love scene na parang maitawid. Ginawa kasi talaga namin ng sobrang seryoso and alam namin kung paano yung flow nung love scene. Kapag meron kaming—at one point—meron kaming ginawa na medyo iba, mag-iiba din yung timpla nung scene. So ang gusto talaga namin is magmukhang serious and magmukhang lovable yung scene. I think yun naman yung lumabas. I think so (laughs),” he recalled.

Apart from the serious storyline, JC admitted another challenge was doing the sensitive scenes with Kim. “One take per angle lang talaga. First time ko to work with Kim. Na-intimidate ako sa kanya because kasi alam mo naman na big star si Kim eh and ever since nag-transfer ako sa ABS-CBN isa siya mga mga ina-eye ko din na makatrabaho ko kasi nga masyadong bubbly ‘di ba? So hindi ko lang in-expect na makakatrabaho kami sa ganitong klaseng story pala. Ini-expect ko parang sa rom-com or comedy, ganyan pero napunta kami sa love story. Pero very happy ako sa project na nagawa ko with her,” he explained.

JC said that their director Eric Quizon was always very helpful whenever they had to do kissing scenes. “May mga guidelines siya sa amin and bago kami sumabak ni Kim dun sa scene na yun, siyempre nagtanong ako sa kanya kung okay lang siya. If she is nervous, then we need to talk. Pero sinagot naman niya sa akin na okay lang siya so tinapos namin yung scene and after nung scene nagtanong ulit ako kung okay lang ba siya. Kasi kung hindi siya comfortable dun sa ginawa namin, puwede kaming lumapit ulit kay direk and we can do it again,” he said.

Even if he is the second lead actor in One Great Love, JC said he is still very thankful to be chosen to be part of the MMFF film. “Kahit support ako ni Kim and Dennis (Trillo) magiging happy and grateful pa rin ako kasi magandang opportunity siya and maganda yung story. Hindi naman bad yung character so hindi naman ako yung ganung klaseng actor na ang habol is yung billing. So okay ako dun sa story and I’m really happy sa outcome nung movie,” he added.
