Erich Gonzales did the life-threatening stunts in her new movie ‘We Will Not Die Tonight.' This is an entry for Pista ng Pelikulang Pilipino 2018 of Film Development Council of the Philippines (FDCP) and New York Asian Film Festival.
She played the role of a stunt woman and an aspiring actress. The actress also narrated an instant where she thought would be her death.
"Ang pinakanakakatakot, na silang lahat natakot for me, ‘yung elevator scene. Kasi inabot na kami ng umaga, dapat patay na ‘yun by midnight, ‘yung kuryente, eh umaga na, so ‘di namin alam na may kuryente pa rin.
She did the stunts herself.
“So, ‘yung pag-take, paghawak-iyon ‘yung elevator scene na from sa taas, bababa ako… tapos biglang, action! Walang double, as in, lahat po ng stunts, wala akong double. Paghawak ko roon, nanginig ako, may kuryente! So lahat sila, ‘Hala anong nangyari? Cut!’”
That's when Erich thought she would die.
“Nakuryente talaga ako, totoo pala ‘yung akala mo, ‘Lord, wow ito na ‘yun.’ Pero hindi pa rin, never say die. Kaya sabi ko, ‘Isa pa direk, kaya pa ‘to. So take-2, pero mayroon pa rin. May ground, may kuryente talaga. Then sabi, “‘Wag na, ‘wag na ito. It’s not worth your life naman so ‘wag na, ‘wag na.’
She also convinced the director to push through with the scene despite what happened.
“And then sabi ko, ‘Direk sabi mo, gustong-gusto mo itong scene na ‘to, ‘di ba?’ Sagot ni Direk Richard, ‘Oo, pero baka mamatay ka, kargo pa kita, ‘wag na ‘yan.’ Tapos sabi ko, ‘Sige direk.’ And then noong next shooting day namin, sabi niya (Direk), ‘Rich, ganda talaga ‘yung elevator scene.’ Ganyan magsalita si direk, ‘di ba.
She even quipped about staying alive despite what happened.
“Kaya sabi ko, ‘Oh direk, gawin na natin.’ Sabi niya sa akin, ‘Ready ka ba? Makukuryente ka ulit?’ Hanggang sa hayun, nagawa namin ‘yung eksena na wala nang kuryente, buhay po tayo, thank you Lord,” nakangiting kuwento pa ni Erich.
Erich proudly shared the effort she put into every scene they did.
“Yes po, buwis-buhay. ‘Yun po ‘yun, ito talaga ‘yung buwis-buhay na proyektong nagawa ko,” nakatawang reaksiyon pa ni Erich.
