Actress Alessandra de Rossi shared during the grand press conference of her upcoming movie “Through Night and Day” on October 30 that she shot a scene for the movie in Iceland that almost cost her life.

De Rossi said that she and her co-star Paolo Contis had to film one scene wherein they were bathing in a hot spring.

However, the temperature of the water was far from hot causing her body to feel numb. De Rossi added that she almost experienced hypothermia.

The film’s director Veronica Velasco recalled how everything went down.

“Parang ano lang siya, kapag binuksan mo yung faucet, ganoon din ang tubig, malamig siya. Pero sa mga Icelanders, kaya nila.

“Nung pine-frame pa lang namin ang shot, nakita ko na hirap na hirap na siya, makikita mo sa mukha niya. Malaki kasi yung pool so labas-pasok si Alex sa frame. Sabi ko, ‘Cut na! Next shot na.’

“Tinatanong nung cinematographer, si Boy Yniguez, ‘Okey ka na dito?’ Sabi ko, either yun o mapapatay na natin si Alex,” Velasco recalled.

Nevertheless, she still commended de Rossi for delivering a brilliant performance despite the life-threatening situation she was put into.

Velasco also lauded Contis for supporting his co-star during the scene.

“In fairness kay Alex, grabe, sobrang lamig, tinapos niya yung eksena. ‘Tapos si Paolo na laging alaskador, for that moment na yun, seryoso siya.

“Sobrang support siya kay Alex. Nakakapit na si Alex sa paa ni Paolo.

“Sinasabi sa kanya ni Paolo, two minutes lang ‘to, tapos na [ang take].

“So, nung natapos na, inulit ko pa rin, pero yung mga iba, sobrang close-up na lang ni Paolo kasi pinaalis namin si Alex para magbihis na, kasi ang layo pa nung pool, kailangan mo pa mag-trek ng 15 to 30 minutes.

“Kung may mangyari sa kanya, hindi namin siya mara-rush sa ospital. Maglalakad pa kami,” she said.

De Rossi added that she thought her body would stop functioning at that time because of the cold temperature of the water.

“Sabi ko bilisan na, kailangan ko nang umahon, kasi wala na talaga akong maramdaman, as in kumakapit na ako sa legs ni Paolo.

“Ganoon pala ang pakiramdam, parang hypothermia. Akala ko, manginginig ka lang ‘tapos mamamatay ka.

“Hindi pala siya ganoon, naninikip talaga yung dibdib mo. Parang mag-stop talaga yung puso mo.

“Nung pinasok na ako sa room, hindi ko mahubad yung suot ko. Talagang hindi mo mapigil na nanginginig talaga yung lahat ng laman mo,” she said.

De Rossi and Contis’ movie is set to hit Philippine theaters on November 14.
