A Family Affair is indeed one of the most intense and thrilling series we’ve seen in the recent years – thanks to its stellar ensemble cast and brilliant directors, writers, and other people behind it. And in the September 13 episode of Hotspot, four of its cast – Jameson Blake, Rans Rifol, Aya Fernandez, and Claire Ruiz – revealed the preparations they did for their respective portrayals.
First to share was Jameson, who imparted that as someone who to tends to easily get distracted, he simply avoids any distraction and just be in the moment in order for him to keep pace with his seasoned co-stars, like Gerald Anderson and Sam Milby. He does it by reading the script thoroughly and connecting with his co-actors or their directors whenever he’s having a hard time in executing his scenes.
When it comes to his physical appearance, he conveyed that it’s actually manageable for him since he just switches to two looks for Drew – one that’s under the influence of drugs and one that’s sane and normal. And since he’s already lean, the 25-year-old actor thinks that he indeed fits the role.
For Claire, she just imagined herself being in Florabelle’s shoes since she has never experienced what she’s been through, and leave her personality behind. The same goes for Rans, who shared that she used to draw from her personal experiences in the earlier portions of their lock-in taping, but now has learned to relate with Coleen.
Aya, on the other hand, intensively studied her character, starting with getting to know her character and researching about fashion in order to fully understand her. She’s also very grateful that they’re able to speak with their creative manager Jay Fernando as it allowed her to learn more about Becca.
They also teased about the more exciting happenings in the series that the audiences should watch out for.
