1It's better to be second while everyone is saying "You should have been first," than be first when everyone says 'You should be second.
2Mario's mom was watching a rehearsal, and we did a step that didn't look as aesthetically beautiful as we wanted it to. She said, 'Mario, you look like Bonito going to the toilet.' Bonito is her dog! And I was like, 'Great.' And then she said to me, 'If you need to spank him, go ahead.'
3I've been dancing since I was 11 years old, yes. Too long.
4Well, I think we're both very energetic and hyper people, and we love to, you know, take everything on very passionately, and that kind of brought us together and made the team work well.
5Mario has so much energy that by the end of the day, I just feel drained. I just sit in front of the TV set. I don't even know what's on. It's great to be with a person who has so much to offer. He's energetic, charming, handsome and intelligent. But it's a lot of work.
6I just kept smiling, but it hurt.
7We did a twist and my rib bone came out. That's what my doctor said. It pinched a nerve and the spasms began and I couldn't move one way or the other. But they said they can fix it in three or four days.
8I was on cloud nine. I could not believe that I would get to meet Richard Gere, Jennifer Lopez, Stanley Tucci and Susan Sarandon. Then Richard came in one day and I had to dance with him just like that. I thought I had died and had gone to heaven.
9The director met with Slavik and me to look at a piece of Tango that we choreographed for the scene where Jennifer gives Richard a private dance lesson very late in the evening. After we performed the routine for him, the director asked me to read a few lines with the other actors. Then he told me I was in if I wanted the part. How could I refuse?
10It was incredibly exciting and we would definitely love to work like this again.
11Richard was very hardworking. He would spend a whole day dancing and would never complain. And I can assure you that I made sure he had sore muscles.
12We were together in Canada only once to film the club scene. Otherwise either Slavik or I would fly to Canada when we had to film our scenes and then fly back to Asia to continue working. It was a lot of extra flying time - which was difficult and tiring - but we were so happy to work on such a big project movie.
