KC Concepcion is excited to work with Gretchen Barretto and Angelica Panganiban in 'Alta'


112411-kc_main.jpgAfter hosting several shows for the past two years, KC Concepcion is excited to showcase her dramatic skills once again via the much-anticipated teleserye, Alta (which originated from the Spanish word alta de sociedad or high society). “Sabi ko nung nag-promo shoot kami, ‘Alam niyo manonood ako ng show na ‘to.’ Tapos na-realize ko, ‘Oh, kasama pala ako.Isa ito siguro sa mga project na talagang I feel ready for it and I feel good about it kasi nga tatlo kaming girls nila Angelica Panganiban and Gretchen Barretto. Palagi kasing love team or anak yung pino-portray ko.”

The powerhouse cast has yet to start taping episodes, but KC can already feel the excitement for their respective characters in the show. “It’s really exciting kasi nag-shoot na kaming tatlong girls. Ako, na-e-excite ako kung ano kaya mangyayari sa kanilang tatlo, iba-ibang hugot ng damdamin, ng emosyon… Iba-iba yung kwento nilang tatlo e. It’s a new thing for me. Sa three years ko sa showbiz, ang dami ko ng nagawa pero this project makes me realize na madami pa akong pwedeng gawin.”

KC plays the younger sister of Gretchen in the story, who’s dead-set on turning against the expectations that comes with being part of an affluent family. “Ako si Alexa Ocampo, isa ako sa mga alta na ayaw maging alta sa totoong buhay. Parang nagrerebelde siya against being alta. So makikita ng tao kung ano yung pinagdadaanan ng mga tao sa ganong klaseng pagpapalaki, kung ano ang problema nila…So makikita nila yung puso ng mga taga-alta.”

Asked about her preparations for the role, KC admitted that she wants to be physically fit for the show just like Gretchen and Angelica. “Well, eto nagpapapayat ulit ako as usual. Nag-workshop din kami with Direk Laurice Guillen. And I feel good naman na alam kong dumaan ako sa kanya at diretsahan naman siya nagtre-train sa amin. I’ve been watching movies na rin kung saan similar yung kwento or yung character ko sa mga bida.”

On a different note, KC expressed her gratitude to all the Filipinos who watched her concert tour with Piolo Pascual and Yeng Constantino in the US. “Talagang nakakataba ng puso na ang dami dumating. To the point na sa San Francisco show namin sold out na siya at punong-puno talaga yung venue. Sobrang nakakataba ng puso na talagang they shared our joys kapag nagpapatawa kami on stage. Kapag medyo ramdam na ramdam ko yung kanta, ramdam na ramdam din nila. And sinasabayan din nila ako sa ibang songs na familiar sa kanila. So it feels good na ganon kalaki ang suporta nila sa amin.”

KC also took pride in her participation at the opening ceremony of the Southeast Asian (SEA) Games held at Palembang, Indonesia last November 11. She sang the sporting event’s theme song “Together We Will Shine” with Malaysian Idol winner Jaclyn Victor and Indonesian superstar Agnes Monica. “Sabi ko, ‘Anong gagawin ko? 30,000 na tao ang nandito tapos kitang kita ko yung president ng Indonesia. Kinabahan talaga ako. Ang laki ng stage, akala ko talaga malulunod ako. Pero ang coping mechanism ko para makapag-survive ako, ‘Pinay ako, ako lang ang Pinay dito.’ Pero nairaos naman and ang sarap ng feeling rumampa sa stage na gumagalaw, na totally humihiwalay sa stage. First time ko makaramdam ng feelings ng beauty queen kasi bihis na bihis ako,” she added with a laugh.
