As LizQuen’s comeback to your television screens, Make It With You greeted fans with an exciting opening week in Croatia. Aside from seeing Liza Soberano and Enrique Gil, Kapamilyas also got to watch and learn about a completely foreign culture. Now, you can join the cast on the set with these never before seen moments behind the camera! From arriving at the airport to trying a folk dance, find out what it is like to shoot in Croatia.
“We don’t know what’s waiting for us. We’ll just have fun,” Direk Cathy Garcia-Molina revealed their mindset for day one of filming. The last time she teamed up together with LizQuen was for the 2017 movie “My Ex and Whys”. “Parang first time kami ulit,” the blockbuster director stated. Admittedly, Liza and Enrique felt nervous as well. The two think it is only normal whenever they are portraying a new role in a new story. Although, working with direk Cathy helped made the process easier.
“I’m really happy with the scene I just took,” Liza said about shooting her first scenes as Billy. This must have been a refreshing experience since she last acted on the 2019 hit “Alone/Together.” The Kapamilya actress had to familiarize herself again with the feel of being on set, “Parang mangangapa ka pa talaga and parang you feel like you don’t know how to anymore.” Luckily, it did not take long for her to get back on track. “It comes out naturally,” she explained.
Meanwhile, Enrique also had fun transforming into his character. “I think the scene was very simple but very meaningful for Gabo,” he described his own first in front of the camera. He got to swim in the Adriatic Sea which is new for the actor.
On day two, Enrique got to work with donkeys. “Now, they are hungry because they did a very good job in our scene,” he said after shooting with the friendly animals. After shooting some more scenes, a local television network dropped by to interview direk Cathy, Liza and Enrique. “The story needed a place, a European country. At least a country away from the Philippines that has the least number of Filipinos. And we found out through research that in Croatia there are very very few Filipinos,” direk Cathy explained why they chose Croatia for the setting.
Billy and Gabo made some unforgettable memories in overseas, but now it is time for them to work back home in the Philippines. How excited are you to see where Make It With You will take its viewers? Do not miss the primetime teleserye, weekdays on ABS-CBN Primetime Bida.
