Nathalie Hart, Former Princess Snell, Disrobes In Her Launching Sex Drama, 'Siphayo', Directed By Joel Lamangan

NATHALIE HART used to be known as Princess Snell when she was with ABS-CBN’s Star Magic then she later joined GMA’s Starstruck when was 17 years old. She also joined “Survivor Philippines” and played supporting roles in soaps like “My Beloved”, “Kasalanan Bang Ibigin Ka”, “Captain Barbell”, “Yesterday’s Bride”, “Makapiling Kang Muli”, etc.

She then got Leo Dominguez as her manager and changed her name to Nathalie Hart. She did several movies for Regal like “Dilim” and “Somebody to Love”. Now, she agrees to go sexy in BG Productions’ “Siphayo”, an erotic drama that aims to revive the bold and titillating film genre of the Seiko Films era. How far did she go in the movie?

“I have hot love scenes with Luis Alandy, Joem Bascon and Allan Paule,” she says. “And yes, I showed some skin, actually, a lot of skin.”

What convinced her to accept such a provocative role? “I read the script by Eric Ramos and it’s very good. Then napakagaling ng director, si Joel Lamangan, na respetado sa industriya at gusto ko talagang makatrabaho, so I accepted it. Pero kung hindi si Direk Joel, hindi ko tatanggapin.”

She admits doing the sex scenes were quite a torture for her. “Sobra akong kinakabahan sa set kasi first time ko gumawa ng love scenes. Noong unang eksenang makikipagromansa ako, hindi ko nakontrol ang emotions ko, nag-iiyak ako at nagkulong sa CR. Tinalakan ako ni direk, hindi raw siya porn director. So I just needed to calm myself at naging okay na ako.”

So, which of her three leading men (Luis Alandy, Joem Bascon and Allan Paule) did she enjoy the most? “Para walang problema, I’ll just say nag-enjoy ako sa kanilang lahat. Pero hindi naman ako talaga nag-enjoy na hinahalikan nila ako at hinahawakan nila ang katawan ko. Paano ka naman mage-enjoy or mate-turn on sa ganun e ang daming ibang tao sa set, may mga ilaw, kamera? How can you get carried away with that? So ginawa ko na lang ang trabaho ko para matapos na.

Nakatulong sa akin si Maria Isabel Lopez, who plays the wife of Allan Paule, kasi she gave me advice. Iba yung may kausap kang aktres na nakagawa ng ganito kasi she understands my situation. She told me you should look at the bright side and you’re lucky kasi nag-start ka muna sa sweet roles. E, siya raw, first movie niya, sumabak agad siya sa sexy. E, ako, ang ganda ng material ng ‘Siphayo’ at si Joel Lamangan pa ang director, so that makes a lot of difference. I really had to prepare myself physically, mentally and emotionally. Kasi making love with three different guys is not an easy thing to do. But now that we’ve finished it, I can say I’m proud of the movie, so watch it when opens in theatres on October 5.”

Aside from “Siphayo”, Nathalie is in three other new movies. She plays Joseph Marco’s first girlfriend in Regal’s romantic-comedy “My Rebound Girl” that opens on September 18 and she has also completed “Balatkayo” with Polo Ravales and “Tisay”, an entry in Cinema One Filmfest in November.
