Mary Cherry Chua‘s story conference with the press, including LionhearTV, artists Ashley Diaz and Kokoy De Santos expressed excitement about working with each other in their upcoming horror movie.

Diaz said she felt excited about the project since it was her first time working with De Santos.

“This if the first time po na makakatrabaho ko si Kokoy, but I’ve heard of him na po before and I’ve seen some of his projects po na magaling po siya na actor and excited po ako na makatrabaho po siya.”

De Santos echoed Diaz’s enthusiasm, especially for the chance of also working with his co-star’s father, Joko Diaz.

“Excited, excited po ako para po sa proyektong ito at siyempre makawork din si Ashley. First time din po namin makawork ngayon and kasama namin ‘yung erpats niya na si sir Joko na first time ko rin lang makasama. So ayun excited po.”

Diaz admitted feeling nervous before meeting De Santos and the entire cast of Mary Cherry Chua.

“Noong una po akala ko parang jino-joke lang ako. Kasi, ano kinakantyawan ako nila Papa na, ‘Oh, ano? Ready ka na ba maging aswang? What if ipapalipad ka nila, itatapon tapon ka nila ganon?’ Noong una po kinakabahan po talaga ako. Tapos noong na-meet ko na po ‘yung cast, tapos nalaman ko na po ‘yung story. Sobrang na-excite na ako bigla, parang hindi na ako kinakabahan. Na-excite na lang ako.”

De Santos, on the other hand, said he was looking forward to the project since it was a horror film.

“Na-excite ako actually noong malaman ko na ‘yung Mary Cherry Chua ay isang horror nga na gagawin namin. Sobrang looking forward lang ako noong nalaman ko kasi mas nauna kong nalaman ‘yung title at ‘yung genre bago ‘yung script. At habang binabasa ko ‘yung script nakaka-excite. Nakaka-excite siya.”

Premiering soon via Vivamax, under the direction of Roni S. Benaid, the horror film includes a powerhouse cast of Lyca Gairanod, Joko Diaz, Abby Bautista, Krissha Viaje, and Alma Moreno.
