After being offered one of the lead roles in the MMFF horror film entry The Missing, Miles Ocampo said she didn’t think twice about accepting the project last year. 

“Parang iba pa yung draft na dumating sa akin when I said yes to this project. Now sobrang thankful ako na ako yung natuloy with this project, ako napili nila direk to play the role of Len. Kasi madalas yung shoot ko going out of the country, Goin’ Bulilit pa ako or yung sitcom, so hindi ko alam paano yung proseso kapag pelikula na yung gagawin kaya hindi ko makakalimutan itong project na ito kasi sobrang mahal ko ang Japan, pangarap ko tumira dun someday. Tapos with the team of direk Easy (Ferrer), sobrang easy ng trabaho namin dahil sa kanya,” she shared.

The 23-year-old actress also said she tried to make her newest role as original as she could to set it apart from her previous work. 

“Every time na may gagawin ako bihira lang ako maghanap ng pegs or yung inspiration kasi feeling ko may tendency akong gayahin kung paano sila umarte so as much as possible binubuo ko sa sarili ko yung character ko with the help of our director. 

"Ang role ko dito nag-aaral ako dito sa Saga University tapos boss nila kuya Joseph (Marco) and ate Ritz Azul) si Rico tapos nag-intern ako sa kanila. Tapos from there, dun natin malalaman kung ano yung agenda nila sa story. Connected ako kay ate Ritz at kuya Joseph kasi nag-aral ako sa Saga University tapos nag-intern ako sa kanila dun sa project na bahay na kailangan nilang gawin. 

"From there, dun niyo malalaman sa pelikula kung ano yung dahilan kung bakit siya nag-intern sa kanila,” she explained. 

Having shot most of the film in the Saga prefecture in Japan, Miles revealed her experience shooting abroad was enjoyable because of the film’s team. 

“Off-cam akala mo hindi horror yung ginagawa namin kasi sobrang saya. Napadali yung trabaho namin because of direk Easy and siyempre yung crew din namin and yung team ng Saga (Film Commission) talagang kita mo talaga yung discipline, yung teamwork na meron sila, and ito yung first out-of-the-country shoot ko na pelikula so sobrang memorable ito sa akin. Hindi biro mag-shoot out-of-the-country but itong pelikulang ito naging madali because of teamwork and cooperation ng lahat,” she said.
