Zsa Zsa Padilla considers her role in 'Budoy' her most challenging so far


100211-zsazsa_main.jpgAfter the movie Paano Na Kaya, Zsa Zsa Padilla will again play mother to Gerald Anderson, this time around in the upcoming teleserye Budoy. In an interview with Push.com.ph during the pictorial for the show, Zsa Zsa said she considers her role as Luisa the most challenging so far. “I think this is one of the heaviest roles I’ve done so far. I have a lot of crying scenes. Although nagawa ko na rin sa Butuing Walang Ningning ‘yung nawalan ng anak and iba ‘yung nagpalaki so in that aspect may similarity sa character ko ngayon. Mahirap this time kasi madaming eksena na kailangan akong humagulgol pero sa set namin masaya kami lahat.”

She further shared that whenever she would do a very emotional scene, she would detach herself from everyone else on the set so she could internalize. “What I would do before a scene na hahagulgol ako, humihiwalay muna ako ang tumatahimik ako. I tap into some of my life experiences. Malalim kasi ‘yung dapat paghugutan ang tuloy tuloy dapat ‘yung emotion.”

Zsa Zsa also talked about feeling proud about the lesson that the teleserye Budoy aims to impart to viewers. “Ito ang kauna-unahang teleserye na isang special child ang magiging bida. When we see a special child kasi parang we don’t know how to deal with the person. Budoy will show a world appears through the eyes of a special child. Budoy is just an ordinary boy who wants to love and be loved in return.”

Budoy, who will be played by Gerald, will espouse a very positive message to the youth, as related by Zsa Zsa. “Maganda na maipapakita rito na si Budoy, kahit may kapansanan siya, sobra ‘yung paghahangad niyang makapag-aral kasi alam niya ang value ng education, na ito ‘yung paraan para makaahon sila sa kahirapan.”

Aside from being a multi-awarded actress, Zsa Zsa is also regarded as an iconic recording star who has one of the most distinct singing voices in the industry. But for the “Divine Diva’ nothing beats the kind of fulfillment she gets from acting. “Ang gustong-gusto ko sa acting is I would go to the set and become another person. It’s the greatest thing on earth. Sometimes you have problems kasi but you can get away from it by being someone else. Also fulfilling for me ‘yung chance to give life to many different characters, lalo na sa character ko dito sa Budoy. Sa teleserye kasi kapag tumatagal na ‘yung kwento, mas nakikilala mo ‘yung character mo. Mas nagiging madali for you to portray it, i-memorize ‘yung lines mo.
