Going through many ups and downs throughout their 10 years together has made their bond even stronger than ever. Lukman and Lia started as co-workers and along the way, they found a lot of similarities and the 13 years gap just disappeared into thin air.
Did you guys remember how you two first met?
Lukman: “We worked in the same production house, she was an intern. We were shooting for 9 Naga by Rudy Soedjarwo and her job was to hand over the script to me.”
Lia: “Honestly, I didn’t realize that he was flirting with me during the shooting. I didn’t think that I’d get an actor as a husband, I remembered that I said to myself that I don’t wanna be involved with men from the movie industry.”
Your first impression about each other?
Lia: “I didn’t realize what he looks like until I handed him the script.”
Lukman: “Though we’re 13 years apart but my first impression when I first saw her was how cute she looked.”
Lia: “That’s the thing though, even with the 13 years apart, we managed to have a great time and had a wonderful chat.”
Lukman: “Also, it caught me off guard that she’s actually pretty OCD about everything. But after a while, I realized that I needed that part in my life as well, especially after we had kids, she made me realized that it’s important to be organized.”
Which part of each other that attracts you the most?
“His patience, he has a big heart.”
“She’s a beautiful woman inside out. She’s very organized, prepared, and also very patient. As an actor, there are a lot of times that I immersed myself into the character too deep that I sometimes took that persona home. When that happens, things in my head become so hard too handle, but she knows how to treat me when I’m still in character.”
When you both fall into a disagreement, how do you resolve things?
“I’m easily triggered when we argue and I’m not good at being pushed. Again, she’s a very organized person, but there are times when I couldn’t do that or when both of us are at our worst conditions, we become so sensitive. I got very defensive when she confronted me. But eventually, both of us usually end up apologizing to each other.”
If you’re given one time to say your appreciation about each other, what would you say?
“I love you, you’re amazing.”
“I’m so proud of you.”
