“Through Night and Day” star, Alessandra de Rossi shared her near-death experience that she experienced while they were shooting for the film in Iceland.
Through an interview with the press, she remembered that a scene required her to swim in a ‘hot’ lagoon that was not hot at all.
According to the director, Veronica Velasco, it was negative 10 degrees when they shot that part of the film.
The director remembered that they finished the scene immediately when they noticed that Alex was having a hard time moving because of the cold.
Alex described that she thought she was going to die that day. “Ganu’n pala ang pakiramdam ng parang hypothermia. Akala ko parang manginginig ka lang, tapos mamamatay ka, hindi pala siya ganu’n.”
“Kahit nung umalis na ako sa tubig at nasa kwarto na ako, sobrang nanginginig pa rin ako sa lamig.”
She furthered that she prayed to God to let her finish making the movie which will be shot in Baguio after coming back from Iceland.
“Niyayakap lang nila ako, tapos, kumot. Lahat ng body heat, nilalagay sa akin kasi feeling nila, mamamatay na ako kasi hindi ako makahinga talaga.”
The director was very happy that Alex remained professional even after what happened.
“Through Night and Day” will be showing in cinemas on November 14. The cast include Alessandra de Rossi, Paolo Contis and a lot more. It is directed by Veronica Velasco.
