Actors John Lloyd Cruz and Jennylyn Mercado, as well as director Cathy Garcia-Molina, talked about filming their latest movie under Star Cinema called Just the Three of Us.
First time to do a movie with the ABS-CBN film production company, Jennylyn said that she feels both nervous and excited. “Kinakabahan pa rin ako hanggang ngayon eh. Nakakailang araw na kami pero kinakabahan pa rin ako. Excited ako sa mga pwede pang mangyari, sa mga mabubuong friendships sa set,” the actress said.
Implying that he considers every movie he does as a new chapter, John Lloyd said, “It’s another chapter in my life and at least ngayon, I have the privilege of including Jen in this chapter. I’m very lucky, one lucky dude.”
When asked about the new things this movie will offer viewers, Direk Cathy said, “Sila pa lang, bago na. Working with Jennylyn, bago na. Bagong kwento, bagong experience, bagong adventures, lahat bago.”
While Direk Cathy said that she is leaving it to the audience to see the chemistry between the new on-screen pair, Jennylyn admitted getting kilig working with her new leading man.
Jennylyn, who mentioned in an interview years back that she wanted to work with John Lloyd, said, “Siyempre masarap ‘yung feeling na ‘yung dream ko makatrabaho eh ito na siya ngayon.”
Meanwhile, John Lloyd, who said that they have been working hard to do a movie that people will love, shared what his new character is like.
“Ako po dito sa pelikula si Uno. ‘Yun talaga ‘yung pangalan niya, Uno Abusado… It’s another complex character. It comes from a very sad past kasi medyo abandoned ‘yung tao. Never niyang nakilala ‘yung kanyang mga magulang and he never really experienced unconditional love which is the total opposite of Jen’s character,” he narrated.
Jennylyn, on the other hand, will play the role of CJ Manalo, an airport staff who dreams of becoming a flight attendant.
“Mahal na mahal niya ‘yung pamilya niya so galing siya sa isang magandang pamilya, puno ng pagmamahal so pangarap niyang mailipad ‘yung buong pamilya niya sa ibang bansa, ganyan. So selflesh siya, gusto niya masaya ‘yung pamilya niya,” she said.
When asked if there will be kissing scenes and love scenes, Direk Cathy answered, “Hindi lang isa… Meron, marami.”
When asked about he feels about it, John Lloyd said, “Siyempre medyo challenging ‘yun kasi lahat naman ng mga ganyang eksena, akala niyo lang ang ganda gandang pinapanood pero kung hindi niyo lang po alam, talagang napakahirap kasi siyempre it’s quite intimate. Maganda lang diyan kung may tiwala ka like ako, buong buo ‘yung tiwala ko kay Direk and si Jennylyn naman, parang napakawilling naman niyang artista.”
Jennylyn then agreed, saying, “Oo naman, alam ko naman nasa mabuting kamay ako.”
