JAY R Reiterates Support For MICA JAVIER Taking Risque Roles
Jay R and Mica Javier had just returned after tying the knot in a gorgeous wedding ceremony in Boracay when the government placed Metro Manila on lockdown due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Supposedly, Mica was scheduled to start filming for the newest Kapamilya offering Lihim Ni Ligayaonce she got back. The singer-actress-dancer is set to play the role of a villain in the launching vehicle of Ivana Alawi. "Luckily, we didn't start taping yet because it would have been kind of messed up to start and then end, and then do this whole [quarantine thing.]"
Mica previously took on daring roles for Los Bastardos and the iWant series Hush. "It really stretched me as an actor and I'm happy I did it," she shared of the experience. "But it's also very risqué."
Asked about his take, Jay R answered, "It's all her decision, you know. I've been on the other side of the spectrum where I've been in a relationship [and yet] I have to do kissing scenes, being intimate with another woman, and it was kind of hard because there was a lot of jealousy. I didn't wanna be that way when it came to my turn, when she was doing it. So I gave full support naman."
Mica added, "I guess it's just an acceptance of what our industry sometimes demands from us. I heard this from someone, 'If singers use their vocal chords as their instruments in singing, actors use their bodies as their instrument.' You just have to wrap your head around the fact that you're doing it professionaly. There's no ill-intentions."
