On July 15, Viva artist Cloe Barreto compared her role in Tahan to the horror icon Chucky.

At the media conference for Tahan, Barreto said she felt shocked to see herself and associated her portrayal of her role with the killer-doll.

“Nagugulat lang po ako na ang ganda kasi. Sabi ko nga po kay Direk, gustong-gusto ko nga doon na parang ako si Chucky. ‘Direk, ang ganda noon, parang ako si Chucky.’ Idol ko po si Chucky.”

Tahan director Bobby Bonifacio gave insight on how they created the gory kill scenes in Vivamax psycho-thriller.

“Siyempre, may mga iba na ano–kakaunti, syempre we’re working on a budget, ‘yung mga iba may mga prostethics, pero mostly totoong laman loob po ng baboy. And then dagdag blood effects din po. Si Cloe po ang naging utak sa lahat ng ‘yun.”

Cloe reiterated that she enjoyed portraying the role similar to the horror-icon Chucky.

“Nag-enjoy po talaga kasi gustong-gusto ko si Chucky. Parang ‘yung kanina pong scene– ang galing parang ako si Chucky. ‘Yun po ‘yung iniisip ko habang ginagawa ‘yun, ako si Chucky.”

When asked about her reaction to people typecasting her in gory roles, Barreto highlighted that she is prepared and ready to take on any characters.

“Siguro po kainin ‘yung laman loob. Tapos kumain ng manok, tapos paglabas buhay. 

“Hindi po kung ano siguro ‘yung mabigay. Handa po ako and kaya ko po paghandaan.”

Cloe Barreto stars in the Vivamax psycho-thriller Tahan alongside Jaclyn Jose and JC Santos. 

The cast also includes AJ Oyteza, Karl Medina, and Marc Cardona.
