Dimples Romana considers her mother role in 'Mara Clara' as a learning experience.
Even if she is just 25, Dimples Romana is already doing mother roles in teleseryes. She was last seen as the vengeful mother of Jason Abalos in the top-rating series Agua Bendita. Now Dimples will play mother to Julia Montes in the teleserye remake Mara Clara. At the press conference of Mara Clara, Dimples told Push.com.ph that she has no qualms about doing mother roles. "No hesitations on doing mother roles. Mas nagiging learning experience nga siya. Nanay na talaga ako sa tunay na buhay. Ang pangit naman kung teeny bopper pa rin ang mga roles ko. I enjoy doing mother roles."
As the mother of a six-year-old girl, Dimples even considers her mother roles as a learning experience. The actress shared that every time she would play Alvira Del Valle in Mara Clara, she would wish that her daughter would not grow up as mean as the Clara character. "Kapag may eksena nga ako with Clara, I would tell my directors na these are the things I should watch out for para hindi maging katulad ni Clara 'lsquo;yung anak ko. Bilang Alvira kasi guilty rin ako sa pag-spoil ng anak. I am a working mom and dahil sa mga taping bihira ko makita 'lsquo;yung anak ko. So ngayon mas nagiging learning experience 'lsquo;yung role na Alvira sa buhay ko as a mother. Ayokong lalaki 'lsquo;yung anak ko na makikipagsabunutan sa school."
Dimples has been in showbiz ever since her teen years and she has experienced playing lead roles on TV. She shared that Mara Clara stars Julia and Kathryn Bernardo each have a bright future as drama princesses. "Nakaka proud sina Kathryn and Julia. They would take any bit of learning from senior actors. Nakikita ko si Mylene (Dizon) tinuturuan niya si Kathryn. Maganda na nagiging pamilya kaming lahat sa set. Maganda na open sila sa mga learning ngayong bata pa sila. I hope they remain as humble as they are now kapag narating na nila 'lsquo;yung peak ng kanilang careers."
Dimples seems to be very blessed as a Kapamilya because she gets one project right after another. She expressed her gratitude to her home network for entrusting her with quality roles. "Minsan tinatanong ko rin ang sarili ko kung bakit [ako maswerte]. Mabuti na rin siguro na lagi kong tinatanong ang sarili ko. I'rsquo;m very thankful kasi ako 'lsquo;yung tipo na ipinagdadasal ko lang na sana kung hindi man mahigitan, mapantayan man lang ng bagong role 'lsquo;yung huli kong ginawa. The last I did was Criselda in Agua Bendita. Thank you sa ABS-CBN kasi inalagaan talaga nila ako. Kaya nga loyal Kapamilya ako."
