At the media conference for their Vivamax Plus movie, Two and One, on October 4, stars Miggy Jimenez and Cedrick Juan; and the director Ivan Andrew Payawal detailed what it was like working with Paolo Pangilinan.

Juan described Pangilinan as a warm person on set who made an effort to create chemistry with his co-stars.

“Si Pao po, sobrang, sobrang warm niya na tao eh. As in, parang siya ‘yung ano ba– mahilig siyang yumakap. Kasi gusto–I don’t know, siguro insecurities, mga questions, gusto niyang ma-feel na parang kaya niyang ilathala or sabihin ‘yung mga– or gawin ‘yung gusto niyang gawin sa set. Ayaw niyang magkaroon ng restrictions. Parang pag kinuha namin ‘tong mga eksena wala na siyang kahit anong block pa na maiisip pa, or makikita.”

He also noted that Paolo made his co-stars feel safe while filming the intimate scenes.

“Kaya siguro ganon siya, noong unang script reading pa lang namin, siya ‘yung pinaka-expressive, siya ‘yung pinakamadaldal. Pinaparamdam niya sa amin na parang, ‘Sobrang open ako, wag kayong mag-alala, safe kayo sa amin. Safe kayo sa akin.’ Ako ganon ‘yung pinaramdam niya sa akin personally.”

Jimenez highlighted Pangilinan’s work ethic and openness in communicating with his co-actors.

“Working with Pao, naging magaan din po kasi we love to communicate, ‘yun din po kasi ‘yung isa sa mga pinaka-importante para sa akin when it comes to working with my co-actors. 

“And siyempre working with our Director. The communication talaga, like to fully understand, and ma-grasp ninyo po talag ‘yung isa’t-isa na in a way, like po sinabi ni Cedrick kanina, consensual. Malaking bagay po ‘yun to actually build the character, build the relationships of the characters.”

Director Ivan said Pangilinan was a perfectionist on set, especially with their scenes and his character.

“Working with Pao, it’s very, very magaan po. What I appreciate the most is he really listens and may pagka-perfectionist din po kasi siya. Kaya kahit kaming dalawa po nag-kakasundo na hindi kami titigil hangga’t hindi maayos or hindi maganda ‘yung ipapakita niya. ‘Yun po ‘yung pinaka-naappreciate ko sa kanya.

“He really listens sa co-actors niya, sa instructions ko. Pag for example, hindi niya nakukuha, pipilitin niya, alam ninyo ‘yun, magtutulungan kami. So, it’s a very collaborative na set. And na-appreciate ko na sobrang open niya sa amin noong nagsho-shoot po kami.”

Jimenez, Pangilinan, and Juan star in the Vivamax original film Two And One, under the direction of Ivan Andrew Payawal, and premiered on Vivamax Plus on October 5.
