A typical day on the set of 2 Good 2 Be True is full of hard work but sprinkled with fun and candid moments, too!
After giving you a tour of Purok Onse and Barangay Sikap, the fictional communities in 2 Good 2 Be True, this time we’re letting you in on the actors and production team’s typical grind on set.
Let’s dissect this behind-the-scenes video which opens with a shot of the Barangay Sikap welcome arch. Going inside, we see Mang Tino (Hyubs Azarcon) in his driver’s uniform sharing a light-hearted conversation with the crew.
On this particular day, they were filming a scene of Eloy (Daniel Padilla) and Ali (Kathryn Bernardo)’s usual routine at the latter’s house before going to the Horizon Grand office. Everyone’s busy making sure the props are in place and the set is perfectly mounted. You know by now that Barangay Sikap is set up within the ABS-CBN Compound and the exterior of the Fajardo residence is only made of backdrops, right?
We go next to the interior of the Fajardo house set up inside a studio. They were filming a scene in the living room with Eloy, Ali, Margie (Gelli de Belen), Pat (Bianca de Vera), and Joseph (Elmo Magalona). We see director Mae Cruz-Alviar extra hands-on with the blocking and emotions expected from the characters. Kathryn reviews the script while Daniel makes sure his hair is camera-ready. We’re impressed how the actors understand the value of rehearsals before take. They look into even the littlest detail of a scene.
Next stop, Purok Onse! There’s Tox (Gillian Vicencio) on duty at the Wash Me Ney Ney Laundry Shop. We are also lucky to catch an adorable off-cam moment between Eloy’s friends and family. There’s Irma Adlawan, Romnick Sarmenta, Earl Ignacio, and Matt Evans with Gillian bantering and taking selfies! The last frame shows director Paco Sta. Maria reviewing Daniel’s scene on his monitor.
The cast of 2 Good 2 Be True appears to really get along well with each other even off-cam. They’re having a blast working on this series!
