“Hindi ko po talaga siya inexpect at all… It’s unbelievable.” That was what multi-awarded actress Nadine Lustre said in a phone patch interview with Noel Ferrer on Radyo Katipunan 87.9.
According to the Millennial Multi-hyphenate, she is even asking herself what did she do right for her performance as “Joanne Candelaria” to be this unforgettable.
This was following her wins as the Best Performer of the Year at the Young Critics Circle, and Best Actress at FAMAS and Gawad Urian this year alone.
A landmark project for Nadine, “Never Not Love You” successfully told the story of a young and reckless love, and the consequences and the struggles that go with it.
Both the critic members from the Manunuri ng Pelikulang Pilipino and YCC agreed that part of being a Best Actress is deciding to be in a beautiful film.
They cited parts of the movie, where the audience were left thinking what Nadine’s character really felt in that specific scene or where will Gio and Joanne’s relationship go after all they have been through.
“Kasi po ‘yung process ko po when I’m acting, I really put myself in the shoes of the character. Even if the details that are given to me aren’t complete, I try to make up a story about the character in my head,” Nadine shared.
Nadine revealed that she almost did not push through with the movie because of her brother’s death, but that became her motivation to do better and further improve her craft.
Asked about the importance of box office success, this is her answer: “I don’t make films po kasi to earn. I like making films that are creative and beautiful to also inspire people and to inspire the watchers. At the end of the day, that’s what is important.”
