Although fans first met her as a Pinoy Dream Academy (PDA) Little Dreamer when she joined the singing talent competition seven years ago and more recently as part of Viva’s all-girl group Pop Girls, Aubrey Caraan said she is thankful to finally get her biggest break in the industry as one of the stars of the latest Darryl Yap film Ang Manananggal Na Nahahati Ang Puso where she is paired with leading man Marco Gallo. 

“Nung una na nalaman ko na magiging cast ako sa movie ni direk Darryl, sabi ko, ‘Naku hindi pa ako ready magpa-sexy.’ Kasi na-judge ko si direk Darryl agad na pag direk Darryl sexy (film) pero hindi naman. Nung una natatakot talaga ako, kinakabahan kasi first time ko makaka-work si direk and  yung team niya. Pero nung nakilala ko si direk sa Siquijor, sobra niyang bait talaga and super fun niya. Parang barkada lang kami, ganun. At saka ngayon kahit tapos na yung shoot, minsan kinukulit ko siya kung paano yung ganito, paano yung tono ng ganito pag may kailangan ako i-voice over or i-dub. Super bait ni direk na nag-re-reply siya agad sa akin and tinutulungan pa rin niya ako para mapaganda yung film,” she shared.

After working with him and the rest of the production while shooting the film on Siquijor island, Aubrey said she feels proud to be headlining the romantic comedy project.

“Sobrang thankful ako kay direk kasi siya yung first director ko sa first ever lead role ko sa big screen. And unexpected talaga ito. Grabe yung kaba, yung takot ko na ma-cast dito kasi alam ko nga yung mga stories ni direk napakatapang, napaka-unique so hindi ko alam kung kakayanin ko ba siya as an actor. Pero dito sa pelikulang ito nagpapasalamat ako kay direk dahil nagtiwala siya sa akin, sumugal siya sa akin para magampanan ko yung character,” she added.

During the Vivamax mediacon event, Aubrey revealed how she prepared herself for the role of a manananggal named Jennifer who falls in love with a human.

“One of my preparations for my character, siyempre binasa ko yung script and ininitindi ko kung paano yung character talaga. Pero nung nandun kami sa shooting mas nilinaw ni direk kung ano yung gusto niyang makita sa character so it’s easier for me na mas ipakita kasi meron na akong vision ko sa character ko and mas pinaganda pa ni direk by helping me.

“Ang prinepare ko for this ay yung motorcycle scenes namin kasi kailangan ko dito mag-motor so days before paglipad namin ng Siquijor, nag-aral ako mag-bike tapos mag-motor. Worth it naman kasi na-experience ko mag-motor. First time kong mag-motor at sa Siquijor pa,” she explained.
