The Directors of the upcoming movie ‘Unforgettable’, Jun Lana and Perci Intalan, commented on Sarah Geronimo’s personality and work ethics during the movie production.
In an interview with Leo Bukas from PUSH, the directors disclosed that they were really surprised when they knew that the actress is great to work with and they can vouch that she has a great personality in real life.
They shared that the singer-actress has no walls and everyone on the set can just approach her and she talks to all of them.
As described by Director Jun, “Ang nagulat pa nga kami is ang down to earth niya, sobra. Sabi ko nga, parang makukumpara ko siya sa mga legends natin – si Kuya Eddie (Garcia), Guy (Nora Aunor)– yung kahit sino kakausapin at kahit sino puwedeng lumapit sa kanya, wala siyang walls, so, yon ang nakakatuwa,”
“Wala naman kasi kaming narinig na negative about Sarah, eh. She’s one of the actresses na well-loved by everyone specially ng mga fans niya. Parang what you see is what you really get. Parang iisipin mo na, yon ba talaga yung Sarah, pero totoo pala.”

Further, the directors also emphasized that the pop princess is really understanding and patient when it comes to filming the scenes especially those alongside a dog for the movie.
“Napakahirap ng mga scenes niya, especially yung mga dramatic scenes na kapag hindi ginawa ng aso yung kailangang gawin kailangan niyang ulitin”, as per Director Jun.
“At hindi siya nagde-demand, ha. Hindi siya yung, ‘Direk, baka puwede naman na ganito na lang yung shot or whatever.’ Kami nag-a-adjust na nga, eh, pero siya mismo, hindi. Naiintindihan niya na, ‘Oh, take natin ulit.’ Minsan ang layo ng lalakarin ni Sarah, pero okey lang sa kanya”, Director Perci added.
Regarding the production of the movie, the two stated why and how they collaborated for the film in order to meet their deadline without sacrificing the quality of post-production.
“If there was a project na magko-co-direct kami, it would be a film like this, ironic siya, eh. Simpleng kuwento, simpleng journey na very personal, pero ang laki nung scale na kailangan mong i-mount.”
“Kaya maganda kasi siya. (Direk Jun), nakabantay siya sa kuwento, sa emotion, sa character. Ako naman nakabantay ako sa coverage, locations”, Director Perci shared.
