Sanya Lopez and Derrick Monasterio revealed how they were able to pull off their intimate love scenes and make them look believable onscreen in their upcoming movie Wild and Free, produced by Regal Entertainment, Inc.
Since the release of its trailer, Wild and Free has become controversial and netizens could not get enough of the daring and bold scenes of Sanya and Derrick. Netizens also expressed their surprise seeing the two young stars tackle more mature roles.
As a matter of fact, the love scenes seem so believable that the director Connie S. Macatuno, revealed that even Derrick’s girl “will definitely get jealous.”
But Derrick and Sanya are just thankful that they were able to deliver in this movie, including their intimate scenes together.
Derrick admitted that he was reluctant when he and Sanya had to shoot their first love scene.
“At first I was really afraid that I might get a slap from Sanya. But of course I already envisioned how the scene would go,” explains the 23-year-old actor and adds that although they were shooting love scenes, he’s fully aware of his limitations. “You have to be faithful on what the script asks, kasi respeto kay Sanya.”
Just like Derrick, Sanya explained that she felt her heart in her throat when she did her first intimate scene with her leading man.
“I was really nervous, but eventually I was able to learn on how to open, hindi naman bastos 'yung movie, may mga eksena na magiging totoo at madadala ka talaga kahit hindi naman sabihin sayo na gawin mo. Sex is part of the relationship, that’s what lovers do in real life,” explains the 22-year-old actress.
Sanya clarified that she did not feel violated doing the sensitive scenes. She is also thankful that Derrick is a true gentleman.
“It helped that Derrick is a gentleman and that we’re good friends. When we were on the set, nandoon ang respect sa isa’t-isa, magagawa n’yo ang bawat eksena nang maayos.”
In the film, Sanya plays Ellie, an independent and self-supporting woman, working as a part-time TNVS (transport network vehicle service) driver, who picks up Jake (Derrick), a man from his past.
While on the trip, the two reminisce their happy times, when they were still a couple. Ellie and Jake met up three years before, while they were commuting. They instantly hit it off and their attraction led to a relationship. However, complications arise when Jake discovers that Ellie’s little secret, a huge impact in Jake’s life.
Wild and Free opens in cinemas on Wednesday, Oct. 10. For more updates, follow Regal Entertainment Inc on Facebook, @RegalFilms on Twitter, @RegalFilms50 on IG and Regal Cinema channel on YouTube.
