Karen Jane Ng
Ex With Benefits and Love Me Tomorrow director Gino Santos is back at it again with his most daring love story to date, Sin Island!
Also featuring the creative mind of young screenwriter Jancy Nicolas, the movie stars Xian Lim and two of today's hottest actresses Coleen Garcia and Nathalie Hart. It tells the story of a married couple whose relationship was put to the test by infidelity and a woman who refuses to let go and lose in love.
"Well, Sin Island is a very edgy film and it's something we haven't seen in a long time with Star Cinema," Coleen said. "It's something for all of us. It's something that will keep us on the edge of our seats and keep us entertained."
It isn't just another typical sexy romance movie, Nathalie describes her first Star Cinema project. "What we like about this film is bini-break din natin yung boundaries 'no? Kung paano mag-isip yung mga tao dito sa Pilipinas. I think it's 2018 na, we have to, I'm not saying accept, but to be more open with movies like this, to be more understanding na and pag-aartista is not about being pa-tweetums all the time..."
Despite being used to playing adult roles, both ladies still had challenges while doing Sin Island.
Bride-to-be Coleen shared, "Actually, challenging siya not in that aspect of like sexy or daring. It's really the maturity aspect of my role kasi to play a wife means it needs a certain heaviness and the connection that Xian and I have to bring out, and have to translate in the screen talaga."
"It's the roller coaster emotions kasi paiba-iba yung emotions ko dito... That's a very difficult task - yung pinaglalaruan mo yung emosyon mo. So parang ako, it's really draining to do that all the time," revealed Nathalie.
Meanwhile, Xian takes on a daring role and does steamy scenes for the first time. Though he finds the genre far from what he used to do, he still made it through thanks to the team. "There's always a lot of people on set especially yung director namin and the writer. I mean gabay naman kami e. We got the liberty to be able to study our characters."
