DanShi talks about La Vida Lena

Revenge-drama series La Vida Lena can count on Danica Ontengco and Renshi de Guzman for youthful ‘kilig’ vibes. Get to know the young love team in this episode of Kapamilya Chat!

Renshi and Danica, who dream to work with Arjo Atayde and Kathryn Bernardo and Daniel Padilla, had quite a long journey to showbiz. He started to audition for different roles in 2017 and eventually landed a spot in indie projects. Same goes for Danica, who didn’t allow rejections to crush her fighting spirit until she met her manager who helped her get into the ‘biz.

Their determination is paying off little by little as they currently star in Kapamilya series La Vida Lena. They said they prepared for their respective roles Allison and Rambo by studying the script and their characters. It’s challenging especially for Renshi playing a boorish orphan who eventually behaved after the Cabrera family took him in.

They saw each other during auditions but were formally introduced on the set. Before the first taping day, Renshi and Danica stalked each other’s online accounts to get to know one another. But as they say, social media is just a piece of a person’s personality. Danica thought of Renshi as a quiet guy but is actually bubbly in person. Same goes for Renshi’s first impression of her.

Although there’s pressure in the beginning, the young stars enjoy working with seasoned artists like Erich Gonzales and Carlo Aquino. They easily got comfortable with everybody on the set.

The newcomers, now shipped by fans as DanShi, take advantage of learning from the veterans. Danica observed how the actors act from the heart. Renshi, who often shares scenes with Carlo, Ruby Ruiz, and Pen Medina, said his co-stars help him deliver.

Working with Kapamilya A-lister Erich Gonzales is quite an achievement for Renshi and Danica, considering that it is their first teleserye. She described Erich as bubbly, talented, humble, and pretty while he went for friendly, professional, generous, and kind.
