NAGING household name si Yam Concepcion dahil sa kanyang pagganap bilang kerida sa teleseryeng “Halik” ng ABS-CBN noong 2019. Ngayong taon, mapapanood siya sa horror movie na “Night Shift.”
After playing “kontrabidang querida,” Yam is all fired up for “la vida de bida.”
Narito ang chat kay Yam ni Dolly Ann Carvajal:
What was the hardest scene to shoot, and which one creeped you out the most?
In general, the hardest part was internalizing my character’s pain. The scenes where my character is chased and confronted by darkness creeped me out. I can’t tell you the creepiest scene because it will reveal the plot twist.
What did you learn from Direk Yam?
He would always say this out loud on the set—“It takes a village”—to remind us that teamwork is the key to success. I learned the value of respecting people’s time, energy, contribution and talents.
What challenged you more: your role in “Halik” or that in “NS”?
Doing a teleserye is very different from doing a movie. Both characters have their own pain and complexity. In “Halik,” it was character-driven, In “NS,” it’s more story-driven. So it’s hard to say which one challenged me more.
How do you handle it when guys flirt with you, even if they know that you’re already taken?
I automatically put them in the “friend zone.” End of story. If they are too “manhid” to sense it, sorry na lang sila.
Do you and your boyfriend Miguel (Cu-Unjieng) have marriage plans already?
We will cross the bridge when we get there.
What’s your dream marriage proposal and wedding?
When I was a kid, I wanted a royal wedding, but now that I’m in my 30s, I’d go for a simple, intimate wedding. One that isn’t pretentious. I’ve always wanted a proposal in the snow.
Do you still get attracted to other men even if you have a BF?
It’s normal to be attracted to someone else, even when you are already in a relationship. Crushes are harmless, as long as you don’t get carried away. In my case, I don’t let the attraction linger in my head. It’s nothing but a passing fancy. Sweet gesture.
