Matteo on working with Maja-A A +A
Monday, January 16, 2012
CEBUANO actor Matteo Guidicelli shared it was uncomfortable at first to work with real life sweetheart Maja Salvador.
After the thanksgiving press conference of "My Binondo Girl", Sun.Star was able to talk to the actor about his upcoming Star Cinema movie "My Cactus Heart".
The said project is Matteo's first big screen project with the Kapamilya Network and his first movie team-up with Maja.
"I'm so scared but I feel very, very blessed. It is really a privilege."
Matteo added that at first it was uncomfortable with him sharing the scenes with Maja because they know each other too well and eyes are on them.
"Sa umpisa nakakahiya eh, pero after a while I adjusted. It is difficult to work with someone you have a relationship with than a stranger but I learned a lot from her."
The actor recalled that shooting their kissing scene started a bit awkward for both of them.
"Nahiya talaga ako. Sabi ko 'Maj nahiya talaga ako dito' kasi may camera may ibang taong nakatingin sa amin."
But with their director's help, Matteo said they both delivered the performance expected of them.
Matteo also said their team-up gave them more time to know each other and discover new things in their relationship.
"Araw araw may discoveries sa aming dalawa. I learned a lot from her, she's a very wonderful person."
The actor is also looking forward to spend more time with Maja, and hopeful that she's the right one for him.
"Maja is a person who loves other people first before herself. She's very caring and selfless. She's always giving, taking care of people and very generous."
"In my heart I'm sure (that she's the one) but we don't know what will happen. Basta pag may love diyan eh ipaglaban natin. Everything I can ask for, she has it," he ended.
“My Cactus Heart” opens in more than 100 theaters in January 25. (Sunnex)
