Kim Chiu talks about how love team partner Gerald Anderson is a hardworking and dedicated actor.
Kim Chiu was very happy when she learned that Gerald Anderson dedicated his Best Single Performance by an Actor award from the PMPC Star Awards for TV to her. In his acceptance speech, Gerald said Kim played a big part in his success and journey as an actor. Kim and Gerald have been a love team for the past four years. Kim said about Gerald'rsquo;s win, "Napakasaya ko para sa kanya. Deserving talaga siyang manalo ng award para dun kasi sobra ang hirap na pinagdaanan niya para magampanan nang mahusay 'lsquo;yung role."
Gerald'rsquo;s victory was for his performance as a young man stricken with Tourette Syndrome in an episode of Maalaala Mo Kaya. When Gerald was still preparing for his award-winning role, Kim witnessed how he made all the possible preparations for his role. "Grabe talaga rin kasi siya magmahal ng trabaho. Nagre-research talaga siya para sa character niya. Lalo na dun sa episode niya sa MMK. Ang dami niyang binasang article tungkol dun sa Tourette Syndrome. Naalala ko na naikwento pa niya sa akin na ang dami niyang pinanood na movies para magkaroon siya ng idea kung paano iarte 'lsquo;yung character."
Kim was also nominated in the last PMPC Star Awards for TV in the Best Drama Series Actress category for the teleserye Kung Tayo'rsquo;y Magkakalayo. (The trophy eventually went to Maricel Soriano for Florinda.) Kim confessed that upon learning who her fellow nominees were, she no longer expected to win. "Mukhang wala naman talaga akong laban sa mga ibang nominees, ha ha ha!" Nevertheless, she expressed her gratitude to the PMPC for the nomination. "Pero masaya ako na na-nominate ako. At least nakilala 'lsquo;yung pag-arte ko and naihilera ako sa mga magagaling talaga."
The 20-year-old Fil-Chinese beauty'rsquo;s first acting award was as Best Actress for Tayong Dalawa, given by the USTV Awards. Knowing that acting is truly her passion, Kim admitted that she also looks forward to winning another award. "Sana magkaroon din ako nun. Pangarap ko rin naman talagang magka-award. 'lsquo;Yun para sa akin ang magiging recognition sa lahat ng paghihirap ko sa acting. Gusto ko rin makilala 'lsquo;yung trabaho."
Fans of Kim are about to see her versatility as an actress as she top-bills the next Your Song Presents drama anthology beginning this December.
