JM de Guzman talked about his new movie with Cindy Miranda
Actor JM de Guzman admitted that he had initial hesitations when the movie Adik Sa’yo was offered to him and it is because of his past experience.
It is known to many that JM was rehabilitated because of his addiction. In past interviews, he already admitted this and shared his inspiring journey as he went through that tough time in his life.
In his new movie with Cindy Miranda, his role is an “adik” while the actress’s role is addicted to him.
Based on the article in Bandera, during a recent interview, JM de Guzman shared that he was a bit apprehensive about accepting this project because he might relive the past that he went through already.
However, after reading the script, he realized that this is good material and he gave in. “Alam ko na maganda ang script. Close din ako kay Tita Mel (Mendoza-del Rosario, ang sumulat ng screenplay ng Adik sa ‘Yo). But the hesitation part, parang talaga ba? Babalikan ko na naman, internalize ang mga pinagdaaanan ko. Pero talagang trust lang,” the actor shared.
JM said that there are so many trigger points for him. He did a scene in a padded room and this happened to him in real life.
“For seven days, talagang pinasok ako doon. Nakakulong ako. So, while we were doing this film, ang daming triggers of the past. Kahit comedy siya, it was really personal for me,” the actor shared.
However, the challenge was not to stop. He knows that this will keep on coming and so, he must face it. JM de Guzman also stressed that he needs to be stronger and wiser everyday.
