CHRISTINE Bermas is so pleased that she got positive reviews for her performance as the unfaithful wife of Mark Anthony Fernandez in “Scorpio Nights 3”. She now has a new movie, “Lampas Langit”, and writers at its presscon are wondering what else would she get to show when she has practically shown and already done everything in “Scorpio Nights 3”?

“Yes, they say itinodo ko na raw sa ‘Scorpio’, so anupa ang bagong puede kong ipakita in ‘Lampas Langit’,” she says. “To be honest nahirapan talaga akong bitawan ang character ko sa ‘Scorpio’ as Pinay. Buti nga at iba naman itong ‘Lampas Langit’, less ang love scenes, more on acting siya at hindi basta sex lang.”

She says ‘Lampas Langit’ is totally different from ‘Scorpio’. “Iba kasi ang genre ng ‘Lampas Langit’. It’s a romantic thriller. Kakabahan ka rito habang nanonood dahil sa mga plot twist. My character is not as wild as ‘Scorpio’ but it’s more challenging for me kasi manipulator ako rito. I play Belle, na akala nila sa simula, anak ako ni Ricky Davao. Then I have an affair with our neighbor, si Baron Geisler, who’s married to Chloe Jenna. Manipulative ako rito and I want to control the people around me. It’s new for me and not like any of the past characters I’ve done before.”

She says there’s another different element in her new movie. “Ang pinaka-iba rito, may girl to girl sex scene ako with my co-star, si Chloe Jenna. I haven’t done such a scene before. May offers dati pero hindi ko tinatanggap kasi parang mas mahirap gawin ‘yun.”

When their director, Jeffrey Hidalgo, told her she’ll have a lesbian bedscene, she demurred at first. “I told Direk hindi ako talaga gumagawa noon. Kasi parang nakikita ‘yung nanay ko na kagagalitan ako. Sabi ko baka hindi ko kayang gawin. But he said it’s another challenge for me and kailangan talaga sa story. And since first time din ni Chloe, I said, sige i-try natin.”

She and Chloe felt very awkward at the start. “Pareho kasi kami, first time namin to do a girl to girl scene. At hindi kami prepared, so tawa kami nang tawa sa shoot. We just took it as a new experience for both of us and I think naging successful naman ‘yung eksena.”

Chloe Jenna is being introduced in the movie, along with another newcomer, Milena Ikemoto. Since she is more senior than them, what advice can she give them as Vivamax stars? “Unang-una, mahalin nila ang trabaho nila. And always, they should do their best. Pag-aralang mabuti ang script at dahil pinasok nila ito, sundin kung ano ang anumang ipagagawa ng direktor sa kanila.”
