Kaye Abad is okay with doing supporting roles again


From starring in two chapters of Precious Hearts Romances, namely Bud Brothers and Somewhere in my Heart, Kaye Abad is preparing for a challenging role in the much anticipated teleserye Rubi. Kaye will play the young aunt of Angelica Panganiban who stars as in the title role. “Ako ‘yung young tita ni Angelica Panganiban. Ako ‘yung magsisilbing konsensya niya dahil siya ang magiging ‘kontrabidang bida’ sa story. Si Rubi kasi, sige lang siya nang sige sa mga ginagawa niya. ‘Yung nanay naman niya who is played by Cherry Pie Picache hindi naman siya masaway. Ako ‘yung magsasabi sa kanya kung ano ang tamang gawin kapag naguguluhan siya o alam kong may gagawin siyang mali o makakasakit sa iba.”

Although she has already proven that she can play lead roles, Kaye said she has no problem with her supporting role in Rubi. The young actress explained she just couldn’t pass up the chance of being a part of this star-studded drama. “Ang laki ng casting ng Rubi. Kasama sina Diether Ocampo, Shaina Magdayao, Jake Cuenca, Cherie Gil… Ang leading men ko sina Wowie De Guzman at James Blanco. I’m so flattered na mapasama sa project na ito. Kahit support role ako hindi naman din basta-basta ‘yung role ko. Maganda ‘yung subplot namin. Challenging siyang gawin. Also masaya kami sa set. Hindi kami ‘yung puro trabaho na nakaka-stress.”

The 27-year-old star also doesn’t mind playing the aunt of Angelica’s character. Kaye recalled the last time she worked with Angelica was in the movie Mila. “Sobrang wala akong problema kay Angel. I’m happy to support her in this teleserye. We’re good naman. Last time na nakatrabaho ko siya sa Mila pa. Bata pa siya nun. After many years dito ko lang siya makakasama uli. Hindi kami nagkaroon ng chance na maging close noon pero when we started taping for Rubi we started bonding together. Hindi mahirap katrabaho si Angel, madali siyang pakisamahan.”

Kaye considers 2009 as her comeback year. After the long running drama Tabing Ilog and the teleserye Sana’y Wala Nang Wakas, she took a hiatus from showbiz. This year, she returned for a guest role in May Bukas Pa and was cast as newbie actor Guji Lorenzana’s leading lady in Precious Hearts Romances Presents Bud Brothers and Somewhere in my Heart. Kaye talked about how happy she is for a very fruitful 2009. “Maituturing kong biggest achievement ko this year ‘yung Precious Hearts, both ‘yung Bud Brothers at Somewhere in my Heart. After kong magpahinga from acting ng two years nabigyan uli ako ng chance na magbida sa TV. Ang dami nang artista ngayon na pwedeng kunin para sa projects na ‘yun. Thankful ako na ako ‘yung pinili nila. Napakaswerte ko.”
