Richard Gutierrez gets five leading ladies in My Valentine Girls

RICHARD GUTIERREZ’ Valentine offering, “My Valentine Girls”, refers to five different girls he works with in the trilogy: tot star Jillian Ward, Rhian Ramos, Lovi Poe, Solenn Heussaff and Eugene Domingo. How will he describe each of them? “Si Jillian, kasama ko in all the stories. Kakaiba siya sa lahat ng child stars na nakatrabaho ko. She’s hyper, very talented, grabe ang energy and I don’t know where she gets it. Pag may pinagawa sa kanya, she gets it right away after just one instruction. In one scene na iiyak siya, rehearsal pa lang, umiiyak na, so sabi namin, wag muna. Sa actual take, lalong ang galing sa dramatic scene niya. But after the scene, parang wala lang, balik agad sa usual hyper mode niya.

“As for Rhian, I’m her first leading man when she joined showbiz in ‘Captain Barbell’ so we’re really comfortable with each other. Since then, she has matured so much as an actress. In our episode, ‘Soul Mates’, she has become very passionate with her craft. Si Lovi, first time namin to work together and I’m excited as she’s very hot right now. Magaling siyang artista, award-winner, and we got to nail some very good scenes together. Love triangle kami with Solenn in the ‘BBFF’ episode. Si Solenn, this is her first try at acting and she was nervous at the start so I’m eager to help her as her first leading man. She’s very good as a first timer. Very natural in her role as a sexy marine biologist.

“Si Miss Eugene naman, I enjoyed working with her sa ‘Gunaw’ episode as she has lots of positive energy. We had great fun working together as the last man and woman on earth tapos, mga kasama namin, puro zombies na. There’s never a dull moment with her. She’s a good comedian so she also brings out the comedian in me. She has accomplished a lot as one of the greatest comedians of this generation and she deserves all the success she’s getting.”

“My Valentine Girls” will open in theatres on February 9, directed by Dominic Zapata (“Soul Mates”), Andoy Ranay (“BBFF- Best Boy Friend Forever”) and Chris Martinez (“Gunaw”).
