After their Star Cinema film A Moment in Time premiered last February 12, Coco Martin said that all the hard work he put into his movie with Julia Montes really paid off. “Sobrang sulit ang pinaghirapan, lahat ng effort at pagtutulungan para mapaganda ang pelikula. Kaya kita sa pelikula, lumabas po siya,” he said.
The movie was shot locally as well as in various locations in Amsterdam in Europe. “Masaya kasi mas nakapag-bonding kami dun, mas nakilala namin yung isa’t isa. Kumbaga mas tumindi yung friendship namin dun sa Amsterdam. Kasi nga iba pag nag-shooting ka sa abroad, parang kayo-kayo lang. Walang ibang artista dun,” he said during the A Moment in Time red carpet premiere at SM Megamall.
As early as 5 pm, fans were already eagerly waiting for Coco and Julia at the venue. During the screening, they went wild when they saw the two finally have their first big onscreen kiss. Coco admitted he was not super confident doing the scene with his leading lady because they had never done it before. “Actually ako yung kinabahan eh! (laughs). Sabi nga namin, kung sa Walang Hanggan mabibitin ka, dito sasagad sagadin na namin (laughs). Siyempre sabi ko nga madami na akong mga experience na mga basta ganun. Kumbaga mas ginuide ko siya. Hindi ko naman siya sinamantala. Actually ako nasamantala eh (laughs),” he joked. The talented actor said he will always be there to support Julia. “Sa lahat ng aspeto siyempre. Bilang magkatrabaho kami, bilang leading lady,” he added.
Coco said he has no complaints when it comes to their kissing scene. “Ay, liyamado kayanga tuwang-tuwa ako eh (laughs). Yung ngiti ko hindi mawala eh. Siyempre sabi ko nga, mula pa ang Walang Hanggan magkakilala na kami, nagkatrabaho na kami. Habang nagiging dalaga siya nasusubaybayan ko and then ito na, jackpot na (laughs),” he said.
The Juan Dela Cruz star said he already had an idea how Julia’s family would react to their romantic scene, especially Julia’s Lola Flory, “Yun nga eh, I’m sure umiiyak yun (laughs).”
When it comes to Julia’s grandmother, Coco said he has developed a very good relationship with Lola Flory. “Parang feeling ko, lola ko siya, ganun. Laking lola kasi ako eh, alam ko yung mga soft spot ng lola. Yun naman talaga ako, hindi ko kailangan um-effort or um-acting dahil para magpakitang tao. Ganyan talaga ako. actually dati pa kaibigan ko na si lola, kumbaga hindi dahil whatever kay Julia kundi mahal ko siya bilang tao, bilang kaibigan eh. Tuwing nagkikita kami kinakamusta ko kung kamusta siya, kumain na ba siya,” he shared.
The A Moment in Time star also admitted he really enjoyed making a romantic movie instead of doing heavy drama for a change. “Actually sabi ko nga tinodo ko na dito, pati kaluluwa ko sinangla ko na sa pelikulang ito. Kasi ang sarap palang gumawa ng light movie. Sabi ko, makapag-pa-in love, makapag-paiyak, lahat. kumabaga pinagsama-sama ko na dito sa pelikulang ito,” he said.
