Is this the reel life or is this just fantasy?

It Was A Dark And Stormy Night

And I was to be a rapist yet again. They have requested for a totally unkempt look this time round, so the world gets to see me in my three day unshaven gory.

And maybe to a certain extent, it seems art is now imitating my life. The character goes as close as almost removing his pants only. Close, but no cigar.

The object of my affections this time round is the sweet Felicia Chin.

Hmm, so far, their names have all started with “F”, is this going to be a trend?

Shooting these kind of scenes is hardly ever pleasant, both for the victim and the victimizer. Which is why I always let the director choreograph the whole act. I feel this often puts the actress more at ease, especially if the director is a female as well.

We had a few tough scenes. There was the one which I had to drag her, kicking and screaming and squirming violently, through some vegetation. It took quite a number of takes, and halfway through, she had cut her finger from one of the thorns and I had the back of my neck scratched by some branch. I almost sprained my shoulder as well.

We managed to nail it finally, and at the end of the last take I felt this sharp pain on my right big toe. Its the kind you feel when someone steps real hard down on your toe.

It was so painful that I practically had to limp on one foot for awhile. This kinda makes it hard to do the next few scenes, which required me to chase after her.

You see, my character was supposed to be limping on the LEFT foot. But now, I’m kinda limping on the RIGHT due to the pain on the big toe. And since it has to be conty, I had to continue limping on the LEFT.

So imagine me, running as fast as I could, limping on my bad foot. I didn’t even had to wait for the shoot to be over to feel my right leg muscles acting up on me. But I think despite the pain, I did quite alright; not only for the chase sequences, but for the whole act.

I hate to say it, but I think I’m getting good at this kind of role. >.<

Afterthought : Aiyah, should have entitled this entry “My Left Foot”
