Yen gets emotional as she talks about her film debut
By Regina Tabora
Yen Santos can’t help but hold back her tears when she watched the official trailer for “Northern Lights: A Journey to Love” during the film’s bloggers conference last Tuesday, March 14.
The angel-faced actress immediately explained that she still can’t wrap her mind around the fact that her very first movie is finally going to be shown in cinemas.
“Sobrang importante sa akin nitong project na 'to,” she said emotionally. “Sobrang nakaka-proud kasi ‘di ko in-expect lahat ng nangyari dito sa movie na ‘to… Sobrang nakakataba ng puso. Sobrang thankful po talaga… ‘yung kino-consider ka pa lang sa isang pelikula, napakalaking bagay na… kaya thank you.”
She further mentioned that working with the Ultimate Heartthrob Piolo Pascual was a dream come true.
“Ibang-iba ‘to. Ultimate ‘to,” she said. “Mixed emotions [‘yung nararamdaman ko kapag nagshu-shoot]... pero nakaalalay naman si Papa P. Bago kami mag-take, nag-uusap kami kung paano, ‘yun, okay naman, nagawa naman namin nang maayos… Sobrang dream come true talaga.”
“Northern Lights: A Journey to Love,” directed by Dondon Santos, is a story about love, forgiveness, and acceptance.
Charlie Sr. (Piolo) is a free-spirited bachelor living the life underneath the majestic northern lights of Alaska. When his estranged son Charlie Jr. (Raikko Mateo) comes into his life, he is forced to face his past, atone for his mistakes, and learn to love again.
Helping him in his journey for redemption is Angel (Yen Santos), who went to Alaska to look for her mother and eventually discover who she really is.
In their search to find themselves, will Charlie Sr. and Angel be able to get not just what they want, but what they need as well? Would they find the strength to forgive and love again?
