Lovi Poe Answers The Question: If Her Dad, The Late FPJ, Were Alive Today, Would She Do The Daring Sexy Scenes She Did In 'The Escort'?

LOVI POE gives her most daring performance in a number of sexy scenes in “The Escort” and she’s happy that the feedback after the premiere night last Thursday is all positive and encouraging.

“Nakakatuwa naman dahil lahat ng nanood, nagustuhan ang movie namin,” she says. “It’s not just the scenes that showed a lot of skin na nagustuhan nila but also the dramatic scenes. Hindi nasayang ang pagod at hirap namin nina Derek Ramsay and Mr. Christopher de Leon para mapaganda ang movie. In fairness to both of them, they’re both very respectful in our daring scenes. I feel so lucky to be given the chance to work with them and with our director, Enzo Williams.”

If her dad, the late FPJ, does she think he’d allow her to do such erotic scenes? “I don’t really know. Ni hindi ko napag-isipan yan kasi I’ve always regarded myself as someone completely different from my dad. Kasi ako, I’ve was raised na I just wanna be myself and not always think of whether people will accept or not what I do. More than anyone else, I want to please myself first. Kasi if I lived my trying to please other people first, that would not be living for me. Even my mom, she trusts me. She knows that I know what I’m doing and I’m doing this as art, as part of my craft as an actress. Even my friends and other relatives, I can feel supportive naman sila as they know this is part of my chosen career. I like my role in ‘The Escort’ as Yassi. She’s a good person and I think viewers will appreciate her.”

Lovi also sang the theme song of “The Escort”. Entitled “No Ordinary Love”, it was played during her love scene with Derek and she sang it with so much emotion. “I felt so happy when Mother Lily told me I’d sing the theme song at naglabas pa sila ng music video nito.”

Lovi’s career is really flying so high these days. She has this glossy well praised movie, “The Escort”, and she’s also in a hit drama series, “Someone to Watch Over Me”, where her portrayal of Joanna, a devoted wife who’ll sacrifice her own happiness for Tom Rodriguez, her husband with Alzheimer’s diseases, is also getting good feedback from the viewers. “Grabe ang story ng soap namin kasi halos every scene, umiiyak ako. But I’m glad the viewers like it so much at patuloy na tumataas ang ratings namin.”
