“NERISA” is a sex-drama thriller that launches the career of former Bb. Pilipinas Tourism Cindy Miranda as a sexy drama actress. 

She has played supporting roles before in the movie “Maria” (where she played a female assassin) and in the TV series “La Luna Sangre” (where she played a vampire.) 

She also shared topbilling with Rhen Escano in “Adan”, but “Nerisa” is her solo starrer and she plays the title role no less. 

She is required to do a lot of disrobing and doing steamy scenes, so what did she do to prepare for them? 

"I have to psyche myself to throw away my inhibitions," she says. "But showing skin is not enough. Maraming ibang maganda, sexy, willing to undress, so more than anything else, you have to show your competence as a good and credible actress. 

"Kaya nga I’m glad and thankful we have a good script written by Ricky Lee and our director, Lawrence Fajardo, really helped me a lot in interpreting my role. 

"Mahirap dalhin yung karakter ni Nerisa at bale ba, inabot pa kami ng sobrang ulan while shooting on location in Alabat Island in Quezon, kaya ang hirap talaga when the weather won’t cooperate.” 

Cindy as Nerisa is a beautiful but mysterious maiden who a fisherman, Aljur Abrenica as Obet, finds floating unconscious in the ocean. 

He takes her home to his island and she eventually becomes his wife. But upon her arrival, strange things and mishaps befall on the island so the islanders blame her for being a jinx that brings misery to them. 

Nerisa ignores them as she knows the men are just lusting after her beauty and the women are merely jealous of her sexiness. 

The only thing she is concerned about is her savior, Obet, and when he goes missing one day, she vows to do everything to get him back. 

She had sexy love scenes as a lesbian with Rhen Escano in “Adan” and now it’s with Aljur. Which is more difficult to do: a love scene with a woman or a man? 

“Parehong mahirap, sa babae man o sa lalaki, pero siempre mas takot ako sa lalaki. Kasi sa babae, alam mo harmless, lalo kami ni Rhen parang naglalaro lang kami. 

"But in the end, acting lang naman ang lahat. What matters is how you portray your love scenes in front of the camera and make it appear na parang totoo. 

"But I just want to stress that this movie is more than the sexy scenes. Malalim siya so don’t miss it.” 

Cindy and Aljur are supported by a powerhouse cast led by Elizabeth Oropesa, Bembol Roco, Sheree, Guji Lorenzana, Vivamax Nymphet AJ Raval and new hunk Sean de Guzman who also stars in the coming “Lockdown”.
