Noong Sabado, January 26, ay naganap ang press preview para sa pelikulang Seduction sa isang editing studio sa San Juan. Dumalo rito ang ilang miyembro ng press, pati na rin si Solenn Heussaff na isa sa cast members ng pelikula.
Matapos ang pelikula ay nakapanayam ng PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) ang Kapuso actress.
Dito ay ipinahayag ni Solenn ang excitement sa nakita niyang “finished product.”
Aniya, ito ang pinakamagandang role na nakuha niya sa halos tatlong taon niya sa showbiz.
Gumaganap si bilang Sophia sa pelikulang ito na idinirek ni Peque Gallaga. Si Sophia ay isang psychotic na Filipina-French woman na manse-seduce sa character na ginampanan naman ni Richard Gutierrez.
“Kasi yung sa ibang mga roles, mas comic, comedy movie. Ito yung pinaka-challenging,” pahayag niya.
Gusto raw kasi ni Solenn na risky ang roles na kanyang gagawin. Malayo ito sa mga karakter na ginampanan niya sa mga pelikula niya noong 2012 na Boy Pick-up at saD’ Kilabots.
“Actually, gusto ko horror, gusto ko, drug addict… Gusto ko ganun, yung mga dark, so yun,” dagdag pa niya.
Hindi nag-audition sa role si Solenn para sa Seduction. Ang Regal Films na mismo ang pumili sa kanya para rito.
“Nung nabasa ko yung script, sobrang excited ako, kasi siyempre, ibang-iba ‘to.
“Favorite movies ko yung Wicker Park, Unfaithful—mga psycho na girl, gusto ko yung ganun.
“Yung parang psycho siya, pero wala siyang masamang ugali. Kasi loner talaga siya.
“Tapos pag nagmahal siya, she gives everything, so I think a lot of people can relate,” kuwento niya.
Mas lalo raw siyang na-excite nang malaman kung sino ang direktor ng Seduction.
Kuwento niya, “Actually, I didn’t know who he was at first kasi when I started in showbiz, I did not know anyone.
MANILA, Philippines - Solenn Heussaff is slated to appear in her most challenging and most daring role to date, as she portrays the role of Sophia in Peque Gallaga’s Seduction.
The French-Filipina beauty, who is signed exclusively to Regal Films, experiences a lot of firsts in her new movie outing. For one, Seduction marks Solenn’s first full-length team-up with Richard Gutierrez. Solenn and Richard have already proven their good chemistry onscreen and indeed, they do look good together.
This is also Solenn’s first “sexy” and most daring film to date, where she plays Sophia, a modern, outgoing and liberated Fil-European girl who always gets what she wants. It’s a role that Solenn has not done before, and when the script of Seduction, was being written, it was a unanimous decision that the society-beauty-turned-celebrity/actress fits the role to a T. In fact, when Solenn read the script, she fell in love with her role.
The Sophia role is Solenn’s first serious portrayal. In fact, it’s her most challenging role to date. It’s very provocative and dramatic, as a woman who is not only looking for love, but also a woman who will do anything and everything for love.
“It’s a very complex, complicated role,” says Solenn. “Sophia has been through a lot, and she’ll fight for what she believes in.”
Solenn prepared for the role by attending extensive workshops, including a few with director Peque. This is direk Peque’s return to filmmaking, and Solenn is honored and excited to be one of the lead actors in what seems to be one of the most emotional, must-see films of the year.
Seduction also stars Sarah Lahbati. Completing the cast are Jay Manalo, Yayo Aguila and Mark Gil, with the special participation of Rodjun Cruz and introducing Jon Orlando of TV5’s Artista Academy.

#Seduction - Jan.30,2013
Last week was another memorable Greenwich event as we celebrated our Christmas party with our media friends. The barkada was almost complete that day: John Lloyd couldn’t join us for the party, but everyone showed up despite their busy schedules. It was a day of fun and games—we all ended up laughing, singing and eating to our heart’s content!
As always, it never feels like work when I’m with my Greenwich barkada. Its been three years since I joined this awesome group and so far its been super fun! All we do is goof around and make kwentuhan when were together, which goes to show what a great barkada this is to belong to.
You can just imagine how crazy it gets when we shoot commercials and print ads. These are always a riot as Greenwich allows us to be our crazy selves. We end up shooting alternate endings and funny outtakes which are later shown on TV.
I think it helps that were really all friends on and off screen. I met most of them way back when we were all just starting out in modeling, or through common friends. So there was no weirdness from the start, we all knew each other. And thanks to countless hours of shoots and events, we all share a bond that’s beyond the yummy pizza and pasta we are selling.
The Greenwich barkada, minus John Lloyd, who couldn’t make it that day. Vince Canizares, Mikaela Lagdameo-Martinez, Solenn Heussaff, Anne Curtis, me and Lloyd Zaragoza.
Greenwich carolers singing ‘Joy to the World’.
More singing from Lloyd, Anne and me.
Christmas parties are all about fun and games, of course. Here we are playing ‘Pinoy Henyo’—girls vs boys. We girls won, of course!
It was also Vince’s birthday that day so we gave him a cake and sang him a song.
Making kwento how we all met. Of course, we all just end up laughing.

Manila, Philippines – EXCITED si Solenn Heussaff sa role niya sa “Seduction,“ ang bagong pelikula ng Regal Entertainment. Aniya, challenging ang kanyang karakter bilang Sofia at sinasabing sobrang daring siya rito.
Kuwento pa ni Solenn, “This is the first time na sobrang into character ako. Kahit nasa bahay ako, when I look at myself in the mirror, parang si Sofia pa rin ako.“
“I think everyone will be surprised with our performances, and also Sarah Lahbati who’s still young, pero yung role niya rito very mature. Chard’s (Richard Gutierrez) character here has an asshole side.“
Gaano naman kaya siya ka-dar ing dito?
Paliwanag niya, “Hindi naman gaanong daring. Like I said, yung movie na ito, very challenging, very mature.
“I don’t know what you mean by `daring.’ Alam ko sa mga Pilipino, pag sinabing `daring,’ makikita ba ang puwet, boobs, and like that. But I don’t really think of things like that… But pag kasama sa scenes namin, ginagawa namin.“
Gaano ba siya ka-confident na magpa-sexy sa mga pelikula?
Saad niya, “Never really been out three. Confident ako sa looks ko, and normal ako with my body, pag hindi bastos yung tingin ko, gagawin ko.“ (Arniel C. Serato)
Kapuso prime actor Richard Gutierrez hops from doing wholesome and “good” roles to doing more mature, revealing, and sexy roles, which might leave everyone in surprise as the coming year opens for his newest flick “Seduction.”
The 28-year-old heartthrob has already shot some scenes for the film, which is directed by none other than Peque Gallaga, who also helmed “Scorpio Nights” and “Unfaithful Wife.”
The movie co-stars sexy Kapuso stars Solenn Heussaff and Richard’s real-life girlfriend, Startstruckwinner Sarah Lahbati.
A report from Interaksyon said Richard will not only figure in steamy bed scenes with both his female co-stars, but will also bare his backside in a pivotal scene.
Richard said he trusts Direk Peque, who was impressed by the actor when they worked together on GMA-7’s 2005 TV series “Sugo.”
“I knew what he could do as actor. I’ve been itching to work with him again since then,” said Peque in an interview.
“Seduction” tells the story of a man, portrayed by Richard, as an antipatiko and utak pulbura guy who is torn between two women, one who is “fire,” while the other being the “rain.”
“Si Solenn ang ‘fire,’ kumbaga exciting but destructive. Si Sarah naman ang ‘rain’ who’s very conservative, mabait, life giving. Ang seduction dito ay hindi physical kundi more of psychological. Na-seduce dahil sa pagkatao,” Peque said.
Richard, who is excited to go out of his comfort zone, said he’ll do everything to deliver.
“Siguradong magugulat ang mga tao sa mga eksena kasi first time nila ako makikita this way. It’s such an honor to be on this set and to be working with such professionals,” he said.
“Seduction” starts rolling in theaters on January 30 as Regal Entertainment’s opening salvo for 2013.
