Kakaibang Sharon Cuneta daw ang mapapanuod sa horror film na ‘Kuwaresma’.
Ikinuwento ni Megastar Sharon Cuneta kung paano siya napapayag nina Dondon Monteverde at Direk Erik Matti ng Reality Entertainment para gawin ang horror film na Kuwaresma na iso-showing na sa May 15.
“They came to my photoshoot for Selecta kasi nga my calendar was walang humpay, walang opening. So, una, I was humbled kasi pinuntahan pa nila ako don. And si Kuya Dondon medyo nakaka-intimidate, kasi nakatrabaho ko na si Direk sa isang commercial nung araw pa.
“I’ve always wanted to do horror movie for many years. Merong hinahanda yung Viva, hindi natutuloy, may hinahanda ang Star (Cinema), hindi natutuloy.
“You know, they just came, ikinuwento ni Direk, nag-usap kami, and like mahaba na yung 15 minutes, wala na, I’m in na. So, I got my schedule and wala pang one month ata nagsu-shoot na kami,” dire-diretso niyang kuwento during the presscon of Kuwaresma.
Aminado si Sharon na nahirapan siya sa syuting ng Kuwaresma pero naging masaya naman daw siya sa set nito.
“I have to say na from beginning to end, although it was one of the most—I’ve done mga 57 movies—it was one of the most physically, mentally, emotionally draining experiences I’ve ever had in movies I’ve ever done, but it was such a happy set, because Direk is such a happy pill.
“And they were like… I was so impressed by the whole Reality team. It was such an efficient staff, such a wonderful crew, na para silang army.
“Actually, I told Kuya Dondon na it was such an honor and a privilege to work for Reality. Thank you so much for all the respect, the great project and the great shooting experience, thank you so much.
“I was so at home because that is the way I want to do things—efficiently and there’s no waste of time. I can’t say enough good things about Reality. But truly, from the bottom of my heart and as God as my witness, one of the very best companies I’ve ever worked with ang Reality,” papuri pa niya sa kompanya nina Dondon at Direk Erik.
Ipinagmalaki rin ni Sharon na ibang-iba siya sa Kuwaresma kumpara sa mga nagawa na niya in the previous films.
Aniya, “I was all in dito, all of my faculties were present and I didn’t expect it to be like that. But I have never… I can honestly tell you na after watching this movie I think it would be fair to say na you might just tell yourself, ‘God, I’ve never seen her like this before.’ I did so many things na never kong nagawa, I’m so happy about this movie.”
Ano ang naging adjustment niya doing horror flick?
“I thought pag horror, mas physical tapos a little mental. What I didn’t expect but I was happily surprised about, kasi since I’m a dramatic actress, I welcomed very highly emotional scenes and most of it was dahil nanay ako, so yung development niya ay gustung-gusto ko.
“It was very intense for me, lalo pag walang dialogue. Kasi you cannot fake that, eh, somehow it jumps from the screen to your audience that you’re ‘acting.’ So ako, I don’t like faking, I like feeling a scene,” pahayag niya.
Hindi ba mahirap umakting na walang dialogue at walang sinasabi?
“Oh, no!” tugon agad niya.
“I have a wheel of emotions in me. I have just mastered the art of smiling in public, so you’ll never know what I’m going through in my personal life,” nakangiting lahad ng Megastar.
