Kylie Padilla no need to rehearse bed scenes with Andrea Torres: “Marami na akong rehearsal. Charot!”

Kylie Padilla and Andrea Torres both enjoyed the time they worked together as a pair in the upcoming WeTV series BetCin.

“We feel good about it, e,” tells Andrea in an exclusive interview with the editorial team of PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) this Monday, October 11.

Andrea continues, “The whole time na ginagawa namin siya, talagang ang ganda lang ng energy sa set, parang lahat may mga ibinabatong ideas din.

“Ang ganda na ng script noong unang nakuha namin, mas na-enhance pa siya.”

As a proof that they really enjoyed shooting the series, Andrea is proud to declare: “Very memorable ang aking first kiss with a girl, very memorable!”

In the series directed by Shugo Praico, Kylie and Andrea portray the social media couple Beth and Cindy, respectively.

Beth and Cindy are on the verge of breakup when they had to join a reality show searching for #RelationshipGoals with P10 million at stake.

Beth and Cindy then had to pretend to their followers—the UMAMIs—that they are still a happy couple in order to win the reality show.

Andrea says that she and Kylie got too immersed with their characters that they enjoyed doing most of their scenes, including the “memorable first kiss.”

She explains, “Siguro kasi, feeling ko, totoo siya.

“Hindi siya iyong nag-usap na ‘Ito gagawin natin sa part na ito, ito iyong gagawin ko,’ walang ganun.

“Sinabi lang iyong eksena ‘tapos bahala na kung ano mangyayari.

“Sabi ko nga kay Kylie, ang description ko doon sa eksenang iyon, para akong nanaginip.

“Noong ginawa iyong eksena, parang pumasok na ako sa Cindy character na after, [sabi ko], ‘Uy, tapos na?’”

Kylie adds, “Hindi na namin alam iyong nangyayari, basta sumabay na lang kami sa kailangan. Kaya noong napanood ko iyong trailer, ‘Oh, ganun pala iyong kiss namin!’”

NO FRET ABOUT INTIMATE SCENES

Both Andrea and Kylie did not have second thoughts about accepting the offer to do BetCin, even if it was their first time to be paired with a female partner.

For Andrea, it was the “bitin” factor she had when she portrayed a transman in an episode of Magpakailanman way back.

The Legal Wives actress recalls, “Ako po, tinawagan ako ng manager na may offer nga raw po na ganitong material and na-excite ako. Kasi dati gumawa na ako ng transman na role, nabitin ako sa kanya.

“Sa Magpakailanman po ito, e, pero di po ako gumanap the whole story. Kasi noong lalaki na siya, si Mike Tan na.

“So, parang nabitin ako, gusto ko pang gumawa ng ganitong klaseng role sana.”

Without batting an eyelash, Andrea said yes when she got the offer.

“Nag-yes ako agad kahit ang ibinigay lang sa akin, summary lang per episode. Kasi sabi ko, parang gusto ko kasi nanggugulat ako sa mga ginagawa ko and para ma-challenge ko rin iyong sarili ko.”

In fact, Andrea has set aside her limitations when it comes to doing intimate scenes required for the project.

“So, noong tinanong nila ako kung ano iyong limitations ko pagdating sa mga intimate scenes, sabi ko, ‘Bahala ka na, Direk! Kung ano iyong ikagaganda ng series, ibibigay ko.’”

As for Kylie, she felt that she can give justice to the character of Beth, a perfect role for her comeback after giving birth to her second son, Axl, in 2019.

She tells PEP.ph, “Ako naman, character based akong pumili ng project.

“Noong dumating sa akin ito, wala akong iniisip na gusto kong mag-GL [Girls Love] series, though gusto ko talaga, it’s one of my dream roles.

“But iyong nakapagpa-oo talaga is iyong character ni Beth, and siya iyong pinili ko. Kasi noong nabasa ko siya, naintindihan ko siya, e. Mabibigyang justice ko ito.”

Like Andrea, Kylie did not fret when it comes to doing kissing or bed scenes for the series.

“Hindi ko na inisip kung may mga kissing scene o mga bed scene. Nagkatrabaho naman na kami ni Ada [Andrea] so magagawa namin.

“Kinakabahan lang ako kasi gusto ko, mukha siyang totoo baka matakot lang si Ada sa akin! Hahaha!

“Pero komportable naman kami sa isa’t isa and iyon lang naman importante sa akin, mabigyang hustisya iyong characters.”

The first and last time Kylie and Andrea worked together was ten years ago, in the afternoon series Blusang Itim in 2011, where Kylie was the bida and Andrea played kontrabida.

NATURAL CHEMISTRY

Did Andrea and Kylie have to rehearse for their intimate scenes?

Andrea exclaims, “Hindi! Hindi kami nag-rehearse!”

Kylie quips, “Marami na akong rehearsal. Charot!”

After making everyone—even herself—burst into laughter, Kylie says, “Joke lang, ito naman!”

She then narrates, “Hindi, parang nagkaroon kami ng workshop ni Ada about our characters, saan nanggagaling si Cindy, saan nanggagaling si Beth.

“On the first day pa lang, gets na namin, e. Nakita ni Direk, ‘Ang ganda, gets niyo na agad.”https://pmrsc.com/”

Andrea adds, “Nakakakilig kasi noong unang script reading namin, naka-set siya ng 2 to 4 p.m. Pero parang ginawa namin siya ng 2 to 2:30 p.m. lang, kasi sabi ni Direk, ‘Okay na iyan, mag-shoot na tayo.’

“So, doon pa lang, ang sarap na ng pakiramdam naming dalawa kasi meron na, hindi na tayo kailangang masyadong mag-effort sa chemistry.

“Parang masyado nga po kaming na-carried away. Haha! Parang na-excite kaming gulatin sila Direk.”

Even then, Kylie admits that there is still that “kaunting kaba” since they are presenting something new to their audience and followers.

The Encantadia actress explains, “Siyempre, magpi-present kami ng kakaibang series na GL series siya, so may kaunting kaba, baka kasi hindi siya tanggapin or something.

“Hindi pa sanay iyong ibang tao na makita kami ni Andrea na maghalikan, ganun!

“So, parang may kaunting kaba, pero may confidence naman ako kasi iyong gauge ko diyan is iyong sarili ko, e. I know my taste, e, and I know what I like.

“So, if I like the show that I am doing, I am pretty sure na kakagat din yung mga tao, so I was excited.”

It seemed that Kylie and Andrea’s followers got excited about this project, based on the comments on their social media posts about BetCin.

Kylie says about it: “Tama nga ako, excited din iyong mga tao so na-validate iyong feelings ko.”

BetCin is set to premiere this Friday, October 15, on the streaming apps WeTV and iFlix. It will run for eight episodes.

BetCin is produced by Rein Entertainment, the same producer of the award-winning iWant TFC series Bagman, headlined by Arjo Atayde.
