MANILA – JC De Vera feels fortunate to have Erich Gonzales and Enchong Dee as his co-stars in his first movie since he transferred to the Kapamilya network.
In an interview with ABS-CBN News on Monday, De Vera said his “Once A Princess” co-stars were very accommodating even if it was only their first time to work with him.
“The fact na sila 'yung naunang lumapit sa akin to say hi, malaking bagay nay 'yun para sa akin para maging at ease ako sa set. Binigyan nila ako ng comfort. Hindi nila pinaramdam sa akin na iba ako since matagal na silang magkatrabaho so sila talaga 'yung close and ako 'yung hindi,” he said.
De Vera said he appreciates that Gonzales and Dee never made him feel out of place considering the two Kapamilya stars have already worked on numerous projects together.
“Sinama nila ako sa friendship nila. We share food. Na-push nila ako magkwento since hindi pa nga ako ganun na komportable sa lahat ng tao, siyempre automatic tahimik ako. Pero with them, nakakapagkwento ako ng masaya at experiences ko. Malaking bagay silang dalawa kasi they are both very friendly and very accommodating talaga,” he explained.
Aside from being kind to him on the set, De Vera said the two, especially Gonzales, were also very generous when they do their scenes.
“She’s very generous. Wala akong masabi sa kanya. Take one, take two, take three, naibibigay niya pa rin lahat with same level of intensity and acting,” he said.
De Vera said Gonzales’ maturity in acting has also helped him as an actor.
“Through the years, nag-mature na rin si Erich. Ang ganda na ng maturity stage niya at ito na ang pinapakita niya. Ang laki ng naitulong niya sa akin. Siya ang nagpagaan ng buhay ko,” he said.
“Once A Princess,” a co-production of Skylight Films and Regal Films, shows how the purity of true love can be tainted and greatly affected by deception, false hopes and betrayal.
Directed by Laurice Guillen, “Once A Princess” opens in cinemas nationwide starting August 6.
