She said: “I trust him 110 per cent.” He said” “I trust her with all my heart.”
After the success of the top-rating teleserye On the Wings Of Love and the sold-out concert JaDine In Love, the real lovers have another offering for their fans to see this summer season. A kilig and romantic film under Viva Films titled This Time is now in the tail end of shooting. In this interview during the set visit in an old house and a funeral parlor in Marikina City, James and Nadine shared their experience working with this film.
Since this is their fourth movie together, the couple was asked how the story is different from other films that they’ve done before, and James replied, “First of all the characters involved are different. This is like a whole time lapse.”
While Nadine added, “Kasi nagka kilala sila mga bata pa sila tapos every year si Coby (James) umaalis tapos umuuwi siya dito summer lang. So nagkikita sila summer lang and I’m sure magugustuhan nila, tsaka this is very very light lang since summer movie nga siya.”
Nadine also shared her experience working with coffins around her. “Yung business po ng pamilya ko ay funeral parlor,” Nadine shared. “Medyo nakakatakot po mag shoot lalo na kapag gabi kasi ang daming kabaong pero masaya naman po kasi si Ate Candy Pangilinan ang nanay ko na make up artist ng mga patay kaya po comedy naman.”
On the other hand, James described his role and shared his working experience with Freddie Web, and as a son of an ambassador. “It’s good, and I enjoyed working with Mr. Freddie Web. He’s such a nice guy, so only good words for him.”
Nadine and James were very busy since they arrived from their first leg of Middle East concert. The “Kilig love team” said that they really prioritize to finish the movie first. “We prioritize our movie and after this we will rehearse for next leg of our world tour, that is Canada and USA, probably sometime in May,” James revealed.
Because of their tight and hectic schedule Nadine and James were not able to celebrated their second monthsary. Nadine said, “Nasa shoot ako, siya pahinga pero halos araw araw naman po kami nagkikita e, kaya parang okay lang,” While James added, “We just greet each other, but of course we worked together everyday that’s why everyday is special to us.”
The couple was asked if there is any advantage working together as real lovers. “Definitely mas may time kami together, mas napapagsabay namin talaga. That is quality time with each other,” Nadine answered.
In a recent talk show interview, Nadine was asked by host Boy Abunda that allegedly their relationship is fake. And when James was asked about this he replied, “I don’t know what to say for them to believe us, but you know what’s real, it doesn’t really matter to me, whether they believe us or not, as long as we are happy.”
Nadine continued, “Kasi kaming dalawa naman po alam naman po namin ang totoo, and alam naman po namin na totoo kaya kung ayaw nila maniwala bahala na sila.”
A few days ago a viral report was circulating that there’s a problem in the Jadine camp, because they were seen attending events separately; James went to an awards night alone, while Nadine graced a TV show without him. “I think guys you think too much,” James laughed. “As you can see were busy right now, and working together. So I should be their to accept the award on her behalf.”
Nadine reacted, “Ako naman po nasa shoot during the Guillermo Awards night. Tapos ako naman po yung nagpunta Kay Tito Boy for Tonight With Boy Abunda, at siya naman po ang nasa shoot.”
This Time is directed by Nuel Naval under Viva Films and will be hitting theaters on May 4, nationwide.
