CHRISTINE Bermas gets to work with Kiko Estrada for the first time in the sexy drama, “Sapul’, and she says she got excited when first informed about it.

“I’ve seen some of his past films at alam kong magaling siyang artista,” she says. “When we started shooting the film, I was able to confirm that he has all the fine qualities of a good leading man.”

Kiko proved to be very supportive in their sexy scenes. “Umaalalay talaga siya. Very nice and professional. But even more so sa dramatic scenes namin. Nakita ko ang commitment niya sa craft niya as an actor. Magaling talaga siya, which is not really surprising as he comes from a family of actors.”

She says, at first, she was quite cautious. “Kasi Inglesero siya so sabi ko, paano kapag puro Tagalog na ang lines na ide-deliver niya. But in fairness to him, marunong siyang mag-adapt at naitatawid niya ang pananagalog niya. Parang sinasapian siya ng character na ginagampanan niya.”

In “Sapul”, she and Kiko play a married couple who is quite happy with each other. But Christine gets so brokenhearted when she finds out that Kiko is not really faithful to her. So she decides to separate from him. Kiko is remorseful and asks forgiveness but Christine is quite unyielding in her decision to dump him for good.

Kiko becomes negligent in his duties as a policeman. He gets so depressed that eventually, he has a meltdown and runs amok right in their police station, taking a female cop, played by Phoebe Walker, as a hostage. His superiors, Simon Ibarra and Jeric Raval, then called for Christine and ask her to help them convince Kiko to calm down.

“Mahirap ‘yung eksena at talagang very intense ang emotions involved,” says Christine. “But you have to see the movie itself to find out kung ano ang naging conclusion sa kuwento ng pagwawala ni Kiko at kung na-save pa ba ang marriage namin.”

Also in “Sapul” are Ina Alegre, Suzette Ranillo, Ada Hermosa and Chad Solano, as directed by Reynold Giba. It starts streaming on Vivamax this Friday, April 21.
