AGREE, Ian F., ang international fight directors na sina Wang Yang Bin at Lester Pimentel na malaki ang naitutulong kung magaling magsayaw ang isang action star dahil like a bamboo nga, kumbaga, ang kanyang pangangatawan na magaan at nai-execute niya ang choreographic movement na kailangan.
In his younger years, Sen. Lito Lapid was a lithe dancer first before he became an action star.
Well, kahit ang itinuring na King of Philippine Movies na si Fernando Poe Jr. had appeared in films na nag-display siya ng dancing skills with the now defunct Premiere Production bago siya sumabak sa aksyon. His favorite leading lady then was fellow teenage star Corazon Rivas.
But, of course, ayon sa dalawang fight directors, who are in charge sa fight scenes involving the head stars ng top series na La Luna Sangre -- Kathryn Bernardo at Daniel Padilla, plus Richard Gutierrez, the supporting cast and extras included, fight scenes on both the small and big screen have evolved.
Mas makatotohanang fight scenes na, mostly mga karani-wang street fights, na binibig-yan, of course, ng kakaibang gilas, ang napapanood ngayon. And they are not easy to do ayon kina Direk Wang at Lester.
Would you believe na may mga action scene sa La Luna Sangre na kung ilang minuto lang napapanood sa tv, pero kinukunan on camera ng at least apat na araw?
La Luna Sangre is produced by Star Creatives headed by Malou Santos and directed by Richard Arellano.

May first movie together palang kasalukuyang sinu-shoot sina Kim Chiu at Matteo Guidicelli titled The Ghost Bride.
Directed by Chito Roño, the film, according to comedienne Kakai Bautista, is horror. Kaya ’di raw siya gaanong nagpatawa dito.
Yet, she loves daw doing the movie, as it challenges her acting talent, she says.
Kakai just appeared sa isang comedy show na Live, Love, Laugh, with Jon Santos, na ginanap sa Ceremonial Hall of the Marriot Grand Ballroom, Resorts World Manila.
Kakai, like her good friend Maja Salvador, refuses to comment about her lovelife.
But the two of them are happy daw. Like Kakai, busy rin si Maja with her top series na Wildflower.
