Gretchen Barretto reveals that her role as a rich, elite woman is not an easy role


101311-gretchen_main.jpgGretchen Barretto recently revealed that taping for the upcoming teleserye Alta will start next week, beginning October 19. Other stars in the teleserye are Angelica Panganiban, KC Concepcion, Sam Milby, Luis Manzano, and Zanjoe Marudo.

Gretchen described her role as, “Isang anak mayaman but merong twist, so challenging ‘yon kasi hindi naman talaga ako anak mayaman sa totoong buhay.

With her sophisticated stature, Gretchen was asked if she feels that her role in Alta will be effortless. “Walang madali na role na ibibigay sa akin,” she clarified. “Kasi I want to give my best as an actor. Kailangan walang hindi madali para ma-enjoy ng tao. Gusto ko ibang Gretchen ang makita nila and of course alam na alam nila na magaling si Angelica and of course, si KC. Nag-workshop kami, magaling si KC so I’m very proud and I believe we are ready to work.”

The actress refused to go into detail when asked how their workshops went. “Whatever happened in the workshop stays in the workshop,” she related. She said that she admires her fellow actresses who are eager to excel in their craft and she was able to know them on a deeper level. “I love [each of] them as a person and I’m excited to work with them.”

Gretchen added, “Bukod sa maganda sila, bukod sa totoong tao sila, normal din silang tao. Hindi lang isang artista na puro palamuti pero they have depth bilang tao.”

Gretchen let out a laugh when prodded about the news that KC and Angelica feel intimidated whenever she is around. “Parati nilang sinasabi nai-intimidate sila ewan ko nga kung bakit. Basta, we will have a great time, I promise them.”

Gretchen declared that she knows that they will all be able to play their characters well because aside from the fact that his co-stars are good actors, all of them have rich life experiences they can use in acting. “I would call challenging role [ang roles namin] pero sa dami ng karanasan namin sa buhay I’m sure marami kaming magagamit na emosyon para sa Alta so you will have something to look forward to.”
