Heaven Peralejo, despite having a hot love scene with Ian Veneracion in “Nanahimik ang Gabi,” is not about to strip in her future endeavors.
When asked if she was willing to throw caution to the wind like other hot actresses nowadays, Peralejo stated that she cannot disrobe on the big screen.
“Maybe I will give it to them,” she said during the movie’s grand media conference, Dec. 13.
“I think, when it comes to my craft, siguro parang planado lahat ng ginagawa ko (maybe all the things I do are planned). Whatever I choose, whatever character I put myself into, parang everything is calculated. I don’t think I can see myself in that kind of sense pa. I want to respect also my parents’ opinion. If hindi okay sa kanila iyon, I think I will respect that,” she explained.
But this is not to say that Peralejo did not give her all in portraying her character of Me Ann, the love of Ian Veneracion’s chief character.
“I think I gave my all in this film. What you will see in this film is Me Ann and not Heaven,” she said, noting that she and Veneracion had been very comfortable with each other so that doing love scenes together was not a problem.
“About sa comfortability doon sa pagkandong ko kay Chief, kay Ian (About the comfortability of having Chief, Ian, sit on my lap), kasi he made me feel so comfortable around him. Since we’re comfortable with each other, we get to laugh at each other’s joke. ‘Yung pagkandong (sitting on the lap), it’s work, it’s not malicious,” she said.
“I think that’s what’s good about both of us. We have set the boundaries very clearly. Once I saw that he was Chief, I was quick to go there with the Me Ann character because there were three of us, it’s teamwork, eh. It’s embarrassing for veteran actors that I’m not from,” she explained. (I think that’s what’s beautiful between [Ian and me]). We have set the boundaries very clearly. Once I saw him as Chief, it was fast for me to get to the character of Me Ann because all three of us, it’s teamwork. It would be a shame to these veterans if I didn’t work hard.)
