Back in the country after attending two successful US premieres of her first film "For the First Time", KC Concepcion is happy and looking forward to doing more projects soon.
At the Sony Armed & Fabulous product launch held last Sept 19 at the Rockwell Tent, the Sony Cyber-shot spokes model shares that there are two things she is looking forward to the most right now: attending the European premiere of her film with Richard and hoping to share the big screen with heartthrob Piolo Pascual.
“I just attended the For the First Time premiere in Los Angeles and San Francisco. It was a good turnout. I didn’t know that there’s so much support from Filipino fans there. It was both an exciting and fulfilling experience for me. I know they were really enjoyed the film. Of course it would’ve been nice if Richard was there too but he was also busy here. We’re going to Austria next week for our Vienna premiere. For the first time there’s a Vienna premiere for a Star Cinema movie so it’s something special,” she admits.
KC also admits that out of all the possible leading men out there, she hopes that she can one day do a project with Piolo. “I would like to be more active in my roles and I would like to work with Piolo Pascual. I know he’s a great actor and I know I’ll learn a lot from him. And he’s also a good friend so I know we’ll be comfortable with each other if we’ll be working together,” she shares.
Slated to do a Valentine movie with Richard next year with GMA films, KC hopes her fans will be just as supportive as they were with "For the First Time."
“Sana kiligin ulit sila. It’s going to be with a different film company so it’s going to be something different. A different director and a different story. So sana yung mga nakakita at nagkagusto sa For the First Time, ay magustuhan ulit nila. Hopefully, ma-accept nila yung mga bagong darating,” she confides.
The talented young actress-product endorser is also proud to show off her movie to the kababayans in Vienna, Austria. “I know excited na rin yung mga kababayan natin doon. Natutuwa rin ako na ngayon napapadala natin yung ating mga pelikula sa ibang bansa. Excited na ako ipakita yung pelikula sa mga kababayan natin doon. Gusto ko rin makita kung paano sila mabuhay doon. At the same time, maipapakita rin namin yung itsura ng Santorini, Greece at para maipagmalaki sa kanila na meron tayong pelikulang ganito,” she excitedly shares.
KC also shared that she learned a lot of lessons while doing the movie. “Of course in For the First Time was my first time, which is exactly why we named it that (laughs). My partnership with Richard was great. I learned from him professionally. He comes on time and he treats people well. He doesn’t complain. I also learned a lot from Tito Philip Salvador (who played her dad in the film).
"He always gave me advice about being patient with the craft. And of course kay Direk Joyce Bernal natutunan ko na magpakatotoo sa lahat ng ginagawa ko. Kung sino ka, yun ka eh kaya yun ang ipakita mo dahil yun dapat,” she concludes.
