Joyce Bernal returns to ABS-CBN via ‘Kailangan Ko’y Ikaw’-A A +A
Tuesday, January 15, 2013
BINIBINING Joyce Bernal is back again in ABS-CBN to direct the newest primetime series "Kailangan Ko'y Ikaw" top billed by Anne Curtis, Robin Padilla, and Queen of All Media Kris Aquino.
"Akala ko mag direct lang ng isang teleserye. Yun pala ang laki niya proyekto. Ngayon ko lang nare-realize. Na-overwhelm ako," Bernal said during the press conference of the teleserye.
According to her, there's a big pressure on her part because she will handle three of the biggest names of the Kapamilya Network.
"May pressure kasi ang laki ng budget namin. Sa talent fee pa lang ng artista ay malaki na. Ano ba naman yung ang laki ng talent fee tapos ang ratings mo mababa."
Bernal is just thankful that she was given professional actors and revealed the three didn't set any limitation for the series.
"Prepared silang dumating hindi katulad ng ibang kabataan ngayon. They look forward (to the shoot).
Two of the many challenges Bernal is facing in this series are how to let the viewers see Kris Aquino as her character in the project and to lessen the macho image of Robin in television.
On Kris, Bernal said: "Grabe yung presence niya. Pinapanood siya dahil siya yun. (Ang challenge) ay kung hindi si Kris Aquino ang character na ito, panonoorin ko ba ito? Yun ang inisip ko. And then paano magbibigay ng weight yung mga dialogues niya na hindi galing sa kanya. Yun talaga ang hinanap namin."
"Si Robin naman, siya yung tinimpla dito. Kasi hindi siya yung usual na Robin na nakikita natin, yung nagpapakilig. Iba siya dito."
Bernal also dismissed rumors that Robin would usually inject his own directorial style in the series.
She said there was just one instance where the actor thought it would be better if his character will react in a particular scene instead of just keeping mum about something.
"Ang sabi niya 'direk parang hindi ako pwedeng hindi pumatol' (dun sa eksena) kasi giniri-giri siya. Ang ending ginawa niya yung gusto niya and ginawa din niya yung sa akin. Dalawa yung shinoot namin. Okay naman ang lahat." (Sunnex)
