In the past six months, shas indeed succeeded in delivering scenes that delighted us, warmed our hearts, brought us to tears, and made our hearts race since every episode has been packed with kilig, drama, suspense, action, and sometimes even comedy.
But just like any productions, the happenings behind the scenes are absolutely far from what we could see on-screen. Gone are the heated confrontations, heart-rending dramatic scenes, and intense altercations because they were all immediately replaced with loud laughter, wide and bright smiles, hilarious shenanigans, and sweet bonding moments of the cast and crew.
And now that it has already reached its much-awaited “Tagos Sa Pusong Pagtatapos”, we are giving you a sneak peek of some of the behind-the-scenes happenings from its finale week through the photos we collated in this gallery that will surely make you miss it so much!
While tension had been always present in the scenes where characters with bad blood against one another were featured, all is definitely well among the actors who actually love to bond together off-cam – just like what we can witness in the candid photos taken during the shoot of Cai’s (Barbie Imperial) 40 days that ensued to a hearty and cheery feast for the remaining characters.
The veteran actors were also game in joining their dance number, which were able to see in the last portion of the finale prior to the closing credits. Wearing similar ABS-CBN shirts in different colors, Glydel Mercado (as Diana), Nikki Valdez (as Monica), Peewee O’Hara (as Lola Pet), Sunshine Cruz (as Maggie), Bernadette Allyson (as Irene), Keempee De Leon (as Jose), Rio Locsin (as Hilda), Richard Quan (as Matthew), and Moi Bien (as Gigi) were already enthusiastic in their rehearsals, more so when it’s already time to show the moves they’ve got.
Aside from their lighthearted moments, we could as well spot stills and behind-the-scenes shots of some of the intense scenes we witnessed in the finale week, such as the hostage-taking scene involving Diana, Sunshine, Nikki, and Tisay (Heaven Peralejo) and the heart-pounding encounter of Dodong (Yves Flores) and Ely (Tony Labrusca) with their dad Matthew. We also saw how the actors prepared for their next takes by intently listening to the instructions of their directors and discussing with their co-actors.
Filming in the midst of a pandemic may be very tough, daunting, and challenging, but the RGE Drama Unit was still able to amazingly accomplish a remarkable teleserye that’s definitely one for the books. Kudos to the whole Bagong Umaga team!
