Fino Herrera’s Luke character fell in love with Sunshine Dizon’s Paula in “Marry Me, Marry You,” and ensuring that chemistry is one task that the actor took to heart, especially now that the series is on its last two weeks.
Herrera shared how Dizon helped make his fitness coach character of Luke lighter and easier to portray.
”Siya (Dizon) ‘yung unang nagsabi na huwag akong kabahan at maging kumportable lang and gawin mo ‘yung sa tingin mong babagay sa eksena namin. Sabi naman niya sa akin na may tiwala siya sa akin,” Herrera said during the online media conference for the series’ finale, last Tuesday, Jan. 4.
(She was the first to tell me not to be nervous and to just be comfortable and do whatever I think is fit for our scene. She said she trusts me.)
Herrera admitted that there was awkwardness during the first taping days. But as the production progressed, they were able to get way past it, and they became comfortable with each other.
“’Pag hindi nag-ro-roll ‘yung camera tahimik lang kami pareho. Pero ‘pag on na ‘yung camera, andun na kami sa moment naming dalawa,” he added.
(When the camera is not rolling, we’re just quiet. But when the camera is on, we get into our moment.)
Herrera is grateful for all the gains he received out of playing his character in “Marry Me, Marry You.”
“Una, marami akong na-experience na natutunan and siyempre nag-gain din ako ng panibagong kaibigan, ‘yung mga cast and directors and staff, naging kaibigan ko na,” he said.
(First, I experienced a lot of lessons, and of course I gained new friends. There’s the cast and directors and staff who became my friends.)
