Derek Ramsay talks about his steamy love scene with Gretchen Barretto in ‘Magkaribal’

The Gretchen Barretto-Bea Alonzo teleserye Magkaribal is set to premiere on primetime television this June. In a recent interview with the leading man in the series, Derek Ramsay, he shared what viewers will have to watch out for in this project. “Watch for the steamy scenes namin ni Gretchen. Ang masasabi ko lang sana sa movie na lang kasi, mukhang hindi pwedeng ipakita sa TV, ha ha ha! But it was nicely done…steamy…rough…intense.”

Derek was also not shy to admit that when they were doing the love scene, it helped that he has a certain level of attraction for Gretchen because that made the scene appear realistic. “It’s much easier to do that kind of scenes when there’s a level of attraction with your co-actor. Yes, there is a level of attraction with Gretchen and I believe that made the scene look better.”

However, Derek and Gretchen both needed the help of some wine before the cameras rolled for their love scene to help them relax. “We were both professional about it. Pero sobra sobra akong kinabahan. Uminom pa kami ng ilang shot bago kunan ‘yung eksena.”

But the Universal Leading Man said that there is no reason for his real-life girlfriend Angelica Panganiban to feel jealous. Derek compared the love scene he did with Angelica in the movie I Love You, Goodbye and this one Gretchen. “I’ve only done two love scenes in my career, this one with Gretchen and one with Angelica. Those two are very different. ‘Yung kay Gretchen is raw, intense, crazy. ‘Yung sa amin ni Angelica mas passionate, making love.”

The moreno model-turned-actor was the personal choice of Gretchen to be her leading man. Derek revealed that it took him some time to feel at ease around Gretchen. “Nung umpisa may ilangan kami. Pero eventually that died down kasi we got to know each other and naging magkaibigan kami. We are comfortable with one another. Sobrang bait niya. Ang dami niyang ikinukwento sa amin kapag nasa set. Siya naman interested siyang makinig sa mga kwento ko.”

He further dispelled rumors that the production for Magkaribal ihas been delayed because Gretchen has so many demands. “Of course not. She’s the most professional person on the set. Wala siyang kaangal-angal. May mga nangyayari sa set na hindi inaasahan pero siya smile lang. She’s focused. She arrives on the set as Gretchen and easily becomes Victoria. She’s the person who would want very much for this project to push through.”
