It was not that easy for Nathalie Hart to accept the movie “Siphayo.” She was nervous when she met with Direk Joel Lamangan and talk about the project being offered to her. Direk Joel was impressed of the beauty of the former Starstruck Avenger formerly known as Princess Snell. But when the two finally met face to face, Direk Joel told Nathalie face to face that his major requirement for her in “Siphayo” is for the half-Australian to have frontal nudity. Nathalie was initially taken a back but she accepted the condition of the veteran director.

Nathalie has a super “bold” role in Siphayo. Imagine, three men take turns in ravishing her sexy body. She has love scenes with Alan Paule, Luis Alandy at JoemBascon. They have sex – in different positions, in different places, of varying emotions. It was a very challenging role but Nathalie accepted the biggest challenge, the most daring role she had ever done.

"When I read the script, I'm shocked but very excited. It's really a "role of a lifetime" kaya hindinaako nag-inarte. My role as Alice is so complex. She is very manipulative, very sexy and unpredictable, " the upcoming sexy star said.

Nathalie was very game on her first shooting day. Whatever it was that Direk Joel asked her, she did without asking why, without hesitation. But on her second day, she suddenly broke into tears and locked herself inside the bathroom before her love scene with Luis Alandy was to be shot. Direk Joel was taken by surprise and was rattled. Together with line producer Dennis Evangelista, they talked to Nathalie and convinced her to do the very daring love scene with Luis.

“She is no bold star that was why there is a shock factor for her in doing daring scenes. She thought all of her scenes will have frontal nudity. When I told her how I plan to execute the scene, she stopped crying. When we shot the scene, she was very good. She gave everything to make the scene work well. Since then I never had any problem with her in doing sexy and delicate scenes,” explained the award-winning director.

Nathalie’s baring and daring has it rewards as “Siphayo” was given an R-16 rating without cuts by the MTRCB. The local censor’s body cited the film for its excellent cinematography, fine acting of the cast and the social message it presented in the film. Despite its sexy scenes, vulgar language and violent climax, it was given a favorable rating of R-16 without cuts. “Siphayo” can be ranked alongside the classical sex drama movies of Direk Joel which made money and acclaimed by critics like "Hubog" of Assunta Da Rossi, "Sidhi" of Ms. Nora Aunor, Albert Martinez and Glydel Mercado, "Warat" of Joyce Jimenez at "Silip" of  DianaZubiri and Francine Prieto.

Aside from Nathalie Hart, Luis Alandy, Alan Paule and JoemBascon, the movie also features Ma. Isabel Lopez at EloraEspano. It is written by Eric Ramos and produced by BG Productions International of Ms. Baby Go. It will have a Red Carpet Premiere at SM Megamall on October 3 and will start its theatrical run on Novomber 2 in selected cinemas nationwide.
