Here’s just a closer look at the movie “Forever and A Day“! Let me start by chronicling the things the cast of Forever and A Day shared during the recently concluded Forever and A Day Press Conference.Present during the presscon are KC Concepcion, Sam Milby, Robin Da Roza, Matet De Leon and director Cathy Garcia-Molina.
Direk Cathy: “What is unique in this movie. I believe naman po every movie is unique in its own right. Malapit po sa puso ko tong kwentong to. Something that doesn’t just talk about love it talks about life. It talks about love for life. I believe that this one is more than just a love story.”
Press: Kc and Matet first time nagsama? Matet na excite ka bilang anak ka ni Nora Aunor kasama mo ang anak ni Mega Star?
Matet: Na excite ako bilang feeling ko mahahawaan ako ng ganda niya. Excited ako. Masaya.
Sam: Even before we started the movie close na talaga kami. 1st parts of the movie medyo nahirapan kami kasi ano chikahan.
Direk Cathy: Pinagbawalan ko si Kc and Sam magusap kasi sobrang close[…]
Kc: We don’t think there would be anything that could in the way of our friendship
Press: On screen Direk pano niyo ito nagagawa? Like on screen parang napaka natural ang pagiging mag partner nila.
Direk: Problem ko lang is magkaibigan sila pero as long as they become the characters they could fall in love.
Press: For KC and Sam pano niyo na portray ang ganitong characters?
Sam: Well, thank you btw siguro sa lahat ng movies eto ang 1st movie na naging close kami ni direk Cathy so I gave a lot and I really owe it to direk Cathy and Kc plus the story is amazing talaga.
KC: Thank you po, that really meant a lot. The 1st thing that Direk asked me to do is to trust her and that really meant a lot. That gave me room to grow.
Press: Kay Sam naman you’ve improved a lot how did you go about it? Saan mo hinuhugot yun emosyon mo?
Sam: I can’t use any personal experiences kung may nangyari nangyari na di lang ako apektado na. In this movie I just felt the character. I have to really say that the story is amazing kung natuwa po kayo sa trailer lalo na sa movie. I got into the character and direk just found ways to bring out the emotion.
Press: Ano magagandang katangian na nadiscover niyo sa isa’t-isa?
Sam: We are close before it’s not like. Ok sige. Mahilig siya sa tubig. She loves being out in the ocean.
Kc: Si Sam naman mahilig sa bundok. Sa outdoors. Yun yung namimiss na niya pala. Itong city living nakasanayan na lang pala niya pero more on sa wild pala gusto niya.
Press: After doing this movie are u sold for the idea na love even for a day can last forever.
Kc: Opo. One day can be your forever and forever can happen in one day. Meron po talagang mga story na ganun eh.
Sam: Opo. Like Kc reminded everyone direk did prove to me in this movie kasi ang hirap maniwala na you could fall in love with somebody in one day but that experience will last forever or may effect sa life mo.
Sam: Siyempre 1st off di naman ito ang 1st time na kasama ko si direk sa movie I would say na may mga doubts ako sa movie but I can confidently say now na no pressure. Whether it be block pressure or not we really gave a lot and that’s what’s important when you’re happy with your performance.
Kc: This has been the most confident I’ve been in a role because hinayaan po ako ni direk Cathy na mag explore pero at the same time very firm naman siya as a director pero binigyan niya kami chance mag explore she would ask us “what would you do as a character?”
Kc: God knows how much I went through and kung gano po talaga ako nag open up kay direk. Kung ano yun mga fears ko and uncertainty ko not just sa pelikula but sa feelings ko po.
Sam: I can vouche for Kc magaling siya dito. I’m really proud of her
Direk Cathy: Bago ko po maka trabaho si Kc when I watched her first film sabi ko meron itong batang ito and I wanted to work with her and it took me a lot of years bago ko maka trabaho si Kc. She exceeded my expectations. May katigasan lang ng ulo parang si Samuel. Grabe pinagdaanan ni Kc sa’kin. Nun kinausap ko si Kc sabi ko talaga sa kanya whatever it takes gagawin ko para lumabas kung anong meron sa kanya and she agreed and she suffered pero I respected her even more because of this film.
Sam: Dati siguro sasabihin ko hindi pero because of this movie sasabihin ko, Oo.
