MANILA – Sarah Geronimo admitted that she will have to think hard before agreeing to do "daring" scenes in her upcoming movie with Coco Martin.
In an interview with ABS-CBN News last week, Geronimo said there are other factors which she has to consider before she agrees to do “more daring” scenes compared to what she did in her third movie with John Lloyd Cruz, “It Takes a Man and a Woman.”
“Titignan po natin. Siyempre nandiyan ang pamilya ko, nandiyan ang parents ko. Mahirap naman magsalita ng hindi ko iniitindi kung ano ang desisyon nila,” she said.
“Siguro kung ano lang po 'yung aangkop sa karakter ko talaga, 'yung characteristics ng role ko, kung ano 'yung qualities niya. Kung hihinging ng storya, baka pwede naman ‘yan i-approach na kaya lang ng limitations ko,” she said.
Coming off from the massive success of her last three films with Cruz, Geronimo said she would rather focus on trying to do away with her character as Laida Magtalas.
“Ang lakas talaga ng impact na naiwan ko sa mga tao as Laida Magtalas. Ang pinakamalaking challenge sa akin na magkaroon ako ng ibang atake sa acting bilang iba yung role na ginagampanan ko. Maturity talaga as an actor,” she said.
But this will not be a big problem, Geronimo said, as Martin is there to assist her.
While they have yet to discuss how they will handle their new roles, Martin assured his and Geronimo’s fans that they will strive hard to give the moviegoers what they deserve.
“Hindi pa naman [namin napag-uusapan kung paanong atake] pero nagkaroon na kami ng look test na may mga eksena na. Masarap kasi siyang katrabaho. Lahat naman siguro ng leading man, pinapangarap siyang makatrabaho,” he said.
Martin and Geronimo were first paired onscreen in the TV musical "1DOL."
“Pinangarap ko na siyempre bawat pelikula, marami kang gustong makatrabaho or maging leading lady. Siyempre gusto ko hindi lang sa soap magkasama kami. Siguro ito 'yung isa sa mga hiling ko na natupad na magkasama ulit kami,” Martin said.
Directed by Jerry Sineneng, Martin and Geronimo are set to start filming this month.
The title and other cast members of the film have yet to be announced. It is expected to be released in 2014, as part of the continuing celebration of Star Cinema's 20th anniversary.
