While you already had an acting career in your native Philippines before, you are probably best known to an international audience from your work on some of the last films by Bruno Mattei [Bruno Mattei bio - click here]. How did you get hooked up with Mattei in the first place?

 

An Italian production called for audition when they were shooting a sexy movie here in Philippines last 2006. Several agents had my portfolio when I was called thru an agent (Jojo Veloso), but unluckily they didnt agree with my talent fee. But the following day, a former sexy star PA called me andasked me to go back because they learned that I am a freelance actress. So, they decided to talk to me directly. 



And that was the start of my Italian career.

 

While the first few movies you did with Mattei (Shudder on the Skin, Secrets of Women, The Dark Side of a Woman) were basically erotic movies, later films (The Jail: A Women's Hell, Island of the Living Dead, Zombie: The Beginning) had a darker, more violent tone to them. Which did you prefer to make, which do you prefer to watch?

 

I prefer everything - because every character I played makes me a better actress and a better person. I always learn new things with each new project I do.

 

According to all my information, Bruno Mattei was never an actual "actor's director" (which at times painfully showed), yet your performances were mostly spot-on. How did you approach your roles, what did you draw upon to get your characters right?

 

As a former stage actress from my school I was trained wellWe all know that a stage play is far from a feature film or TV. I always study my character and sometimes I research things about it. Every time I am in front of the camera I make sure I'm in character already and not Yvette.

 

In some of your films with Mattei, you had quite a few nude and (simulated) sex scenes. Was nudity in front of the camera ever a problem for you?

 

No, because Im a different person every time Im in front of the camera. For me, a role is only a role.

 

What kind of a director was Bruno Mattei, and what kind of a person? And were you aware of his reputation before filming with him?

 

Zombie: The Beginning

Yes, I did some research on him and asked my producer some questions. As a director, he knows what hes doing and focusses on it. Only shows that he loves his field of work. As a person, he can be good friend, great father, teacher and a mentor.

 

How did you get into acting in the first place, and did you ever take any acting classes or the like?

What can you tell us about your Filipino movies prior to your collaborations with Bruno Mattei?

 

I started as a talent, and one day, they gave me a chance to work by doing supporting roles / 2nd leads in every project. Its another training ground for me as an actress. I love working with Filipino actors and directors. There's a different approach to different stories and different point of views. I love the essence of an idea from a different perspective by intelligent people.

 

I have never had the chance of working in Filipino movies that I can call my own - but one day, I will achieve here what I had done for Italian movies and television.

 

Thanks for the interview!
