Rhian Ramos, ipinagmalaking maraming natutunan kay Piolo Pascual

Rhian-Ramos-Piolo-PascualHINDI NAGDALAWANG-ISIP si Rhian Ramos nang i-offer ni Direk Jeffrey Hidalgo at Roy Sevilla Ho ang indie film na Silong ng SQ Film Laboratories at Black Mamba Pictures. Kakaiba raw ang istorya kahit may daring scene siya with Piolo Pascual. Inamin ni Rhian na first time siyang magpapaka-daring sa pelikula. Kailangan daw sa eksena kaya uminom muna ito ng red wine before the take para mawala raw ‘yung kaba at nerbiyos.

“Piolo is such a gentleman, inalalayan niya ako sa scene namin. Before the take, hinahayaan muna niya akong ma-relax. Maganda naman ang kinalabasan, very realistic and we’re all happy nagawa namin ni Piolo ‘yung character na kinakailangan sa eksena. Nang mapanood ko nga, napakaganda ng visual, there’s ups and down…” say ni Rhian.

Pinag-usapan din ang shower scene ni Piolo na nagpakita ito ng puwet. “When I was doing it, sabi ni Jepoy (Direk), sabi niya, ‘ibaba pa. Hindi naman makikita, ibaba mo pa nang kaunti.’ So hindi ko na nakita. Nakita ko na lang sa pelikula. Nu’ng una kong makita, na-shock ako, pero nang second time kong mapanood, parang wala naman, okay naman,” sabi ni PJ. Depensa naman ni Direk, “May approval ‘yun kay Piolo, pinakita ko sa kanya… ‘Yung puwet ni Piolo, pinagdaraanan ng Pilipinas ngayon, so parang sa gobyerno, ‘yung kalahati nakikita natin, totoong nangyari.”

Sinabi ni Rhian, marami siyang natutunan kay Piolo as an actor. “He’s so intense and he’s focused… with me kasi before I do a scene, I really put in my head. I get nervous about doing a scene specially when it’s important to me. If I feel I’m gonna have a hard time, I feel nervous before hand. I don’t see that happen with him. The second you hear action, he doesn’t really take much time to warm up into the scene. He’s intense right away which I don’t have also. It takes me awhile to warm-up into what’s happening in the scene. Parang, I’ll wait for the scene to tell the story. This guy is so focused, his eating me alive. This movie, it’s going to end my career. But afterwards… it’s because he was so convincing to me, and later on becomes easy when I forgot all the back part. You know, what you gonna look like in the movie. You just go into the scene and believe it’s happening. It becomes simple like that. guess that’s the practice and learning that I got.”

Bukod sa pelikulang Silong, may indie film pang ipalalabas si PIolo with John Lloyd Cruz. Palibhasa kakaiba ‘yung mga indie project na dumarating sa binata, as an actor, challenge ‘yun para sa kanya. “Honestly until now, basing on that glory, you know after Breakup List, and then Silong comes up in Cinemalaya, and it all comes into place, I feel bless about it. Hindi ko naman inisip na gawin ‘yun nang sunud-sunod. It just happens one by one and so nakakatuwa lang tignan doing different roles sa pelikula pa.”

Wish ni Piolo na sana raw ‘yung mga mainstream actors ay gumawa na rin ng indie film. Katwiran niya, “Sanay mag-merge at magkaroon ng unity para at least ‘yung support na nakukuha ng mainstream, makuha rin ng indie. ‘Yung mga artista, hindi iisipin na porke indie ‘yun, hindi nila tatanggapin, because ang sarap gumawa ng indie.”

Diretsong sinabi ni Piolo na wala siyang plano maging director. Never draw na sumagi sa isipan niyang maging isang sikat na director. “Producer lang talaga ako. Masyado akong nag-i-enjoy kapag nakagawa ako ng pelikula. As an actor, as a producer and as a director, mas malaki ang kita ng artista, not for anything. Ang hirap maging director, nandu’n ka sa pre-prod, bago mag-start ‘yung pelikula. Sa shooting, nandu’n ka hanggang matapos. Kapag artista, punta ka lang sa shooting, tapos na, promo ka na, ‘di ba? I don’t think I have that gift. I don’t think that’s my call.”
