“Lucky,” a word that describes Shy Carlos

14

For Viva Princess Shy Carlos, she considers herself lucky for being paired with millennial star Empoy Marquez in the movie “The Barker.”

“Sobrang suwerte ko po sa kanya kasi ako po iyong napiling i-partner sa kanya. Sa dami-dami po ng Viva stars, sa akin po ibinigay itong project kaya naman thankful ako kay Boss Vic at sa Viva dahil naisip nila akong ilagay sa ganitong project.”

Shy however, dismissed that Viva is playing favourites with its stars.

“Lahat naman po kami nabibigyan ng projects like Yassi and Ate Anne. Lahat po kami inaalagaan ng Viva,” she pointed out.

She further added that doing comedy is not new to her.

“Nag-Tasya Fantasya na po ako sa TV at “Lumayo Ka Nga sa Akin” na isa pong horror comedy kasama ko po si Ms. Maricel (Soriano), so hindi na po ako nahirapang mag-adjust,” she recounted.

It’s not also her first time to work with Empoy in a project.

“Nakasama ko na siya noon sa “Kapitan Awesome” at iba pang programa ng TV5,” she revealed.

She admitted though, that this is her first to do an action-comedy in a movie.

“Wala po akong masyadong action scenes dito. It’s more of Empoy ang may action scenes. Pero may isang short scene lang na hindi naman kailangan ng training,” she said.

“Excited din ako dahil first ko ang ganitong genre sa movies,” she added.

In their reunion outing, she said that Empoy has not changed a bit.

“Ganoon pa rin. Humble at walang pagbabago sa ugali ni Empoy. Pareho pa rin siya at hindi mo mararamdaman na big star na siya kaya ako, naniniwala ako na Empoy is the new pogi,” she quipped.

She’s also aware that after Kita-Kita’s box office success, Empoy became a favorite leading man among her peers.

“Para sa akin, sobrang attractive iyong isang person na confident at hindi takot na ipakita yung totoong karakter niya. Si Empoy kasi, sincere at mabait siyang tao at magaling din siyang makisama, so iyon siguro ang traits niya na nakaka-attract sa mga kasama niya,” she asseverated.

She said that she had no qualms in doing kissing scenes with Empoy in the movie.

“Late na kasi ako nasabihan, pero sabi ko, okey lang kasi, feeling ko, ang kini-kiss ko lang ay si Piolo Pascual,” she said.

“Actually, marami ang kissing scenes namin pero wala akong preparations. With Empoy around, naisip ko rin na hindi na kailangang paghandaan,” she added.

After doing fantasy, horror, drama and comedy, she said that she has not found her niche yet.

“Happy ako kahit sa anong genre. Iniikot ko po silang lahat, and so far, lahat sila nae-enjoy ko pero isa talaga sa pinakagusto ko ay comedy din,” she concluded.

Aside from Empoy, “The Barker” also stars Jeric Raval, Wilma Doesn’t, Ronnie Lazaro, Atak Arana, Janice Jurado, “Greatest Love” power couple Sylvia Sanchez and Nonie Buencamino, Jemina Sy and Raffy Reyes.
