An emotional seven-minute scene between Coco Martin and Yassi Pressman in “FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano” was revealed to be done in one take and without any script – an “exciting” challenge that the cast members get to do occasionally on the set according to the actress.
“Here’s one of our one-take script-less Cardo-Alyana scenes. Sometimes we get to do freeflow scenes. Just bullet points of where a scene begins and where it goes,” posted Yassi on her Instagram account accompanying the seven-minute video.
“It’s exciting to do these kinds of scenes because you don’t know how they will come out and you need to constantly think about what you’re character is feeling. One of the things I’m grateful to have learned from #FPJsAngProbinsyano,” she said.
In the scene, Cardo and Alyana are lying in bed as they discuss the argument they had earlier on in the day about Cardo being unhappy with Alyana’s outfit for work. Their argument escalates when Cardo tells her to quit her job while Alyana, already in tears, answers back by saying that her work is what allows her to fulfill her dreams. Cardo then apologizes and leans in for a kiss but Alyana turns away.
The scene ends with Cardo and Alyana being unable to settle their differences, and would lead to even more arguments between them as they figure in a shouting match the next day about Alyana’s role as Lito’s (Richard Gutierrez) business partner.
While Alyana grows distant from her husband, she has found comfort in the arms of Lito, her former sweetheart, as their relationship develops while on a business trip together.
Now aware of Alyana’s marriage troubles, what is Lito’s next move to get her to fall in love with him again and betray her husband?
