Rhian Ramos On Why She Agreed To Do Sexy Love Scenes With Piolo Pascual In The Dark Thriller 'Silong'

RHIAN RAMOS didn’t have any second thoughts when offered to be Piolo Pascual’s leading lady in the dark indie thriller, “Silong”, which is now showing in theaters nationwide. “After reading the script, nagustuhan ko agad ang role ko as Valerie, a very mysterious girl, so I said yes right away,” she says.

Is Piolo her crush? “Ngayon, yes, crush ko na siya, kasi before, maka-Aga Muhlach talaga ako, e. But after working with him, I realized he’s not only really gwapo but he also has a good personality and a good sense of humor. He’s very committed to his craft, so intense, very focused. At first, sabi ko, he will eat me alive kasi he’s so convincing. But you just have to look into his eyes and believe.”

She did a sexy love scenes with Piolo. “This is the first time I did love scenes. I couldn’t bring myself to do it, I was so nervous, so I asked for some wine muna. It was my duty as an actress to do it kasi kailangan talaga sa story. Piolo was a big help in calming me down. I felt more comfortable kasi he’s so easy to work with. Pag sumigaw na ng cut, he’s the first one who will cover my body right away.”

How is it coming to ABS-CBN to help promote their movie? “Dati na akong nagpupunta rito. In high school, I was enrolled sa kanilang long distance classes and I took my exams here, so it’s not new to me. But it’s my first time na tumuntong here as an actress and I feel happy to be here as everyone is so nice to me.”

On TV, after “Rich Man’s Daughter”, Rhian is now hosting the show “Full Throttle” on the History Channel. She has also branched out into business and is now the co-owner of a bar and restaurant in Bonifacio Global City.
