Empress wants her first kissing scene to be with Enchong Dee


After her successful lead role in the afternoon series Rosalka, Empress is about to get another big break as she is set to join the Robin Padilla-Bea Alonzo teleserye currently in pre-production. Empress is just thankful that ABS-CBN already has a follow-up project after Rosalka so she will be relaxing before production starts. "Wala pang storyline so hindi pa ako ganun nakakapag ready. Right now gusto ko lang magpatuloy 'lsquo;yung growth ko as an actress, makagawa ng iba sa ginawa ko sa Rosalka. Baka may time ako na makapag-work out at mag-diet."

Empress knows that after her acclaimed performance in Rosalka, she needs to keep up with the much higher expectations from viewers. If ever her new teleserye requires her to be more mature and daring, how far is she willing to go? "Kung napanood niyo 'lsquo;yung Rosalka, medyo bata pa 'lsquo;yung character ko dun so may pagka playful pa. Ngayon siguro kailangan kakaiba na 'lsquo;yung atake. Dapat medyo matured na rin, parang ako sa tunay na buhay. Inaamin ko na kahit 17 pa lang ako madami na rin akong alam na bagay na hindi alam ng ibang ordinaryong ka edad ko. Dapat mag-mature na rin 'lsquo;yung pananalita at 'lsquo;yung galaw ko. Depende pa rin sa bagong character na ibibigay sa akin," she answered.

But she the former child star quickly clarified that she is not yet ready to bare more skin, like wearing a two-piece bikini for a role. But should the character and the story require, Empress is willing to do kissing scenes. "Siguro kailangan na rin. Ang selfish ko naman kung ako 'lsquo;yung nagiisang artistang ayaw gumawa nun. Minsan naman kasi kailangan din sa story at nakakapagsaya ng mga fans. Para sa akin hindi na dapat sabihang ang artista na, 'lsquo;Kailangan mo nang mag kissing scenes!'rsquo; Dapat sa sarili mo alam mo na 'lsquo;yun darating 'lsquo;yung panahon na kailangan 'lsquo;yun."

Is there any particular actor with whom she wants to have her very first kissing scene? "Kahit sino talaga. Hindi ko naman pwedeng sabihin na, 'lsquo;Ayoko sa kanya!'rsquo; Kung si Zac Efron, go na go talaga ako!" she joked.

When asked with whom she feels very comfortable doing intimate scenes, Empress named her friend Enchong Dee. "Matagal na kaming magkaibigan and naging love team na rin kami dati. Si Enchong talaga 'lsquo;yung guy na pinakamalapit sa akin. Wala namang malisya kasi friends kami." Enchong is now in a love team with Erich Gonzales who happens to be one of Empress'rsquo;s best friends in showbiz.
