Yam Concepcion recently sat down with Boy Abunda for an interview where she talked about doing intimate scenes for her past and present projects.
The 32-year-old actress, who stars in the Kapamilya series Init sa Magdamag, also shared what it’s like working with her co-stars Gerald Anderson and JM De Guzman.
“Si Gerald is such a gentleman,” Yam said.
“Si JM sakto lang. But he’s such a generous actor. Kahit walang camera sa kanya, nagbibigay talaga siya. Grabe si JM,” she said.
Asked about what she means by “mapagbigay” when it comes to her fellow actors, she said: “Nagbibigay siya ng emosyon sa mata. Talagang energies. You’d feel him na truthful to the scene. Na kahit wala siyang camera, binibigay niya sa’yo ‘yung emosyon. ‘Yung truth na ‘yun.”
Talking about working with Gerald, on the other hand, she said: “Dito sa show na ‘to — I’ve seen his movies in the past — you’ll see a different Gerald Anderson in this show,. May lalim.”
Asked how steamy her scenes with her fellow actors in the show would be, she said: “Sobrang init. Mainit na mainit.”
Yam, who was asked how she manages to do love scenes with her co-actors, said it’s all about trusting her director. She added that she’s lucky to have people who are both respectful and professional.
“It’s all about trust in your director kung paano nila i-momount ‘yung eksena. And your co-actor as well. And so far I’ve been very fortunate na lahat ng naka-love scene ko naman very respectful naman and very professional,” she said.
“Of course, sasabihin kung saang parte ang hindi ka pwedeng hawakan. Are you comfortable. At least, ‘pag ganu’n, mayroon kayong understanding,” she added.
But Yam admitted there were instances when her co-actor sometimes get carried away with a scene, but said she didn’t feel violated at all.
“That has happened, but I didn’t feel violated. It was just that moment. Naiintindihan ko na nangyari because of that, Yam said.
