Mica Javier took on a daring role in the iWant and Indigital Productions’ original erotic anthology series Hush where she starred in the episode Here She Comes. In the said movie, she had love scenes opposite fellow actress Mara Lopez in a lesbian-themed love affair.
During the press conference for iWant and Indigital Productions’ new projects, she shared what made her decide to accept the role. The It’s Showtime GirlTrends member said that although she is a newbie in the industry, she is on the lookout for challenging projects that would hone her craft. “I want to push myself as an actress and that’s what made me say yes to this project,” she said.
As for the challenge, she talked about doing this kind of role for the first time. “’Yung naging challenge kasi ay girl on girl action. I just looked at it as hindi siya sa sex or sa gender ‘nung katrabaho ko or kaeksena ko. Tinignan ko na lang siya as this is a human being, whether it’s a girl or boy, kailangan kong i-deliver ‘yung emosyon t’saka ‘yung intention ng character ko.” Mica also shared that doing acting workshops, such as the Ivana Chubbuck acting class, has helped her in executing the objective of her character.
When asked about the reaction of her fiancé, singer Jay R, she said he was very excited, “Because it’s new and it’s pushing boundaries. And, he’s very supportive in everything that I do naman po so happy naman po siya sa kinalabasan.”
Meanwhile, talking about her intense love scenes with Mara, Mica said, “Parehas kaming palaban… Kung hindi niyo pa po napapanood, I don’t think I can express it in words (gaano ka-palaban)… Pero, yes, there’s love scenes and kissing scenes.”
Did she hesitate to do it?
“Hindi po. At saka ‘nung malaman kong si Mara po ‘yung kapartner ko, friends naman kami so mas naging madali po siya para sa aming dalawa. It was super fun on set,” she answered.
