"I feel like I’m totally past the love team phase."
These were the words of Nadine Lustre as she returned once again to acting.
"It’s not a bad thing, though. A love team is a partnership. If you’re in a love team, you pull each other up. It’s really team work. Feeling ko I’m already past that. When you reach this age, feeling ko wala ng love team," the 28-year-old actress said in an interview with ABS-CBN News.
She also remarked that she would want to do other genres other than love stories.
“Alam na ng mga tao kung paano ako sa love stories. I think it’s time for me to do other genres," she said.
She continued, “Ang na-miss ko talaga sa pag-arte, where you portray a character. I don’t mind doing thriller, action, horror. Scripts that are mind-boggling. Kapag binasa mo talagang mapapa-isip ka. Gusto ko psychopath naman ako in my next project. Something different. Para naman exciting siya kung gagawin ko. Para iba din ang pakiramdam kung iba’t ibang characters ang gagawin mo."
Nadine is set to star in the upcoming horror-thriller movie Greed alongside Diego Loyzaga. The movie is directed by Yam Laranas.
“When Boss Vic (del Rosario of Viva) and Direk Yam pitched this Greed project to me, sobrang na-excite ako. Ang saya ko din. Finally, the project is no longer romantic-comedy or drama. Horror-thriller ang Greed, so very exciting din for me," she stated.
The actress admitted that she had to adjust once again to acting in front of the camera because it has been a while since she did an acting project.
“Hindi ako humaharap sa camera, so there were times na nag-shoot kami lately, hindi ko na alam kung paano ako magpo-pose or mag-smile. Back to zero ang skills ko kasi nga, ang tagal kong hindi nagtrabaho. Nanibago ako. Although nag-music ako pero iba naman kasi ‘yung experience doon," she stated.
Nadine relayed that direk Yam and her co-stars helped her execute her role in the movie successfully.
“Whenever I acted with Direk Yam for this film, ang feeling ko may kulang or may mali. Sobrang nakakapanibago. Eventually, natama ko with the help of Direk Yam and my co-actors.”
Greed will be streaming on Vivamax on April 8.
