Karylle admits doing 'The Kitchen Musical' was a milestone in her career


112911-karylle_main.jpgCurrently on the Asian promo tour for her show The Kitchen Musical, Karylle admitted that she definitely got more than she expected from the whole four-month experience shooting the show in Singapore. “Siyempre incredible yung experience. I never thought I’d be part of a project like this. I was always hoping na one day in the Philippines I’ll have a musical again. Little did I know in my small mind na it’s outside of the country pala and it was a great experience for me,” she shared.

After coming back to the country last month, the Showtime host said she never expected to get such an overwhelming response from their show as evidenced by feedback from social networking sites. “I really had no idea of knowing except through Twitter. Kasi yun lang naman ang access ko as of now. And I’m getting a lot of tweets na hindi ko na maintindihan yung sinasabi (laughs) so kakaiba yun for me. Tina-tag nila ako kasi siguro nahahanap nila ako because of Christian Bautista or ewan ko baka sobrang galing lang nila, nahanap nila ako. Ang nakakatawa diyan kasi, siyempre we have a lot of Filipinos everywhere and a lot of them are saying that they are watching it with their friends from Thailand kunyari. Basta I got a lot of tweets from iba-ibang lugar. I’m not familiar with all the countries but there’s also from Cambodia, Indonesia, and Malaysia,” she said.

The 30-year-old singer/actress/host said it’s definitely a different feeling to get recognized internationally. “Siyempre lahat naman ng trabaho we’d like to consider that we poured our heart and our soul into it pero ito kasi iba dahil well for one thing it’s a group effort. Sama-sama kami and it’s kind of nice that we’re all together in doing it na parang team, parang Team Philippines ganyan. In that sense, yes it’s pretty much a milestone but for me kasi I’d like to think that everything that I do talagang binuhos ko lahat, like with my album, ganyan or whatever. Ayoko naman sabihin na dahil it’s international dun ko lang iuri-recognize yung work ko na importante. Kasi siyempre importante din naman sa akin yung ginagawa ko din dito, small part or big part,” she shared.

Karylle also admired the professionalism of The Kitchen Musical crew. “It’s different there. Ang maganda kasi dun, nakikita ko yung potential natin maging mabilis. Siyempre kinukulit nila ako na kailangan ganito, kailangan sobrang bilis. Eh tayo kasi ang style natin dito minsan sanay tayong 24 hours working, dun half lang, 12 hours. The difference there is we work very, very fast and the pace is something na hindi tayo sanay dito dahil sanay tayo sa pa-easy-easy, ganyan. Patulog-tulog (laughs). After lunch meme muna, ganyan. Iba din sila dun. I guess it made me a little more O.C. to make things more efficient. Nakita ko yung quality of life siyempre maganda. They’re able to take care of their health, they’re able to spend more time with their families. But when it’s work, it’s really work,” she explained.

As an actress, Karylle says she has come back with a lot of new learnings. “Madami talaga akong natutunan. Number one, we worked with a lot of very, very good actors. Maging bias man ako, nagpapaturo ako kay Art Acuna who won best supporting actor for Nino in Cinemalaya and he actually won in the Pusan Film Festival recently so magaling siya. Madami akong tanong, hindi ako nahihiyang magtanong at mag-explore na kamusta ba, okay ba yung ginawa ko. Nagtatanong ako sa kanya and the nice thing is, he’s the kind of actor who likes to discuss, who likes to share and he’s very giving. Si Stephen
