Piolo Pascual talks about 'Land Down Under'
Popular actor Piolo Pascual shared his excitement for his upcoming movie project with actress Angel Locsin entitled “Land Down Under.”
“Iba iyong pressure, iba iyong ‘Lobo’. But for a movie it’s a different challenge definitely all together,” Pascual told abs-cbnNEWS.com.
The actor said that aside from doing a first movie with Locsin, it’s also his first time to work with movie director Rory Quintos.
Pascual said that he and Locsin will be shooting in Bukidnon and in Darwin, Australia for their cowboy/cowgirl scenes.
“I’m looking forward to it, at first time ko po itong Bukidnon and we'll be filming in Australia as well. So it’s definitely a welcome challenge,” he said.
“I always look forward to the movies that I do, because iba lagi ang approach. And with ‘direk’ Rory you can be sure na it’s a nice movie na hindi pababayaan, after all her critically acclaimed movies."
Pascual shared that as preparations for his role in the movie, he and Locsin are now training for horseback-riding under Vic Barba and actress-equestrienne Mikee Cojuangco.
Pascual and Locsin do their trainings at Manila Polo Club.
They will also do some of the popular sports in Bukidonl.
“Marami, all the sports they do in Bukidnon iyong how they pin down iyong bull or how they race with the horses. It’s gonna be pretty physical,” Pascual said.
The actor admitted he had some misgivings in portraying the role of cowboy, since he has to act as if he is really experienced and trained to be one.
“With the trainings that we’ve had for more than a month so far po ay nagugustuhan ko naman iyong pagho-horsebackriding. I never thought that I was really gonna enjoy, masakit at first,” he said.
Pascual shared that for the first day of his horseback riding training he got blisters since he didn’t know how to ride. But as time went by he got the hang of it.
“It's something that I enjoyed doing and I feel good knowing na hindi siya mahirap na trabaho kasi na-e-enjoy ko siya,” he said.
To ensure the safety of Pascual and Locsin the ABS-CBN management got them insured while doing the movie.
