Uge (Eugene’s nickname) pointed out, “Sa Kimmy Dora prequel, Sam will be playing a very, very challenging role.”
What can viewers expect from this movie?
The actress said, “Asahan n’yo na iba na naman ang genre niya, although comedy pa rin.

fulfil her promise to Spring Films, the production outfit composed of
Piolo, Erickson Raymundo, Shayne Sarte, and Joyce Bernal.

"This is a promise that I made to Spring Films and this is the third and the last [installment].
“Yun ang ipinangako ko kay Piolo at sa Spring Films na makasama sa Film
Fest. Masaya talaga pag Pasko at alam ko aabangan ng lahat ang Kimmy
Unlike her past films, Uge said that she will not have torrid kissing scenes with her leading man this time.
“Walang torrid kissing…pero may ibang part na iki-kiss,” teased Uge.

“Para sa akin kasi 1, 2, 3 okay na. Tamang-tama ang script ni Chris Martinez na ito na ang pinaka-last.
"I’m very happy that Sam Milby accepted it.
“Believe it or not, Sam is perfect for the role.”
Sam, on the other hand, said, “And that means a lot.”
