‘Los Bastardos’ actor Jake cuenca aired his reaction to the controversy involving his girlfriend Kylie Verzosa and their co-star Maxine Medina.
The two female celebrities made it to the headlines after reports about Kylie’s alleged spitting to Maxine which was not part of the script while they were shooting a scene for the show made rounds online.
In Jake’s interview with ABS-CBN News, he explained how actors sometimes get into character a little too much that they tend to do things that were not in the script.
He said: “Minsan sa eksena, mayroon kang nagagawa na extra, mayroon kang nagagawa na hindi kanais-nais na hindi mo sinasadya. Hindi namin intensiyon na manakit, hindi namin intensiyon na mambastos, pero at the end of the day in character ka.”
Jake then looked at the positive side of the issue involving Kyle and Maxine, saying: “Maganda rin naman at may natutunan silang dalawa rito. Parehas silang bago pa sa industriya. Max, pangalawang soap mo pa lang. Kylie, first soap mo pa lang. At the end of the day, hindi naman kami inuupo bago ng show at tinuturuan ng etiquette na maging artista, wala naman. It’s not something that’s taught. Wala namang eskuwelahan talaga na nagtuturo sa iyo na ‘ito, dapat ganito sa eksena.’ You just figure it out, natututunan mo while doing [the scene].”
“Masasabi ko naman na for both girls, napakahusay nila. At the end of the day ‘yung mga eksena nila, I think ‘yung highlight nila, nagsabunutan sila, ‘yun pa yung nag-20 [percent], ‘yun pa ang isa sa pinakamataas na rating namin,” Jake added.
The two female stars and former beauty queens earlier said that the two of them are now in good terms and that Kylie already apologized to Maxine.
