On Chemistry;

"Professionalism. We have scripts, we have guidelines. The story says the couple are in love, we need to make it convincing. I think it just takes two true artists to bring characters to life," she said.

On Favourite Scene;

"I think every scene was. It’s quite an intense film, and I loved the intense scenes. I would say I enjoyed playing the roles that we had to dig deep, and draw those emotions, especially go where you don’t want to. And that’s because I love a challenge," the actress said.

“Like I said, it was very challenging. I can honestly say men, they have a thing  where they don’t want to reveal much. I was forced to reveal,” Oris added.
