Coney Reyes reveals the secret behind the success of '100 Days To Heaven'


052211-coney_main.jpgConey Reyes said that she is not worried about getting exhausted taping for the top-rating primetime teleserye 100 Days To Heaven. “I’m okay naman. I know how to balance my time. I think I’ve learned already through the years and I don’t accept more than I could handle, so alam nila kung ano ang kaya ko at ano ang hindi,” explained the veteran actress. “May mga sinabi na ako sa kanila na kaya kong gawin, hindi ko kayang gawin. I’m fine, I’m okay.” Coney plays lead character Anna Manalastas, a wicked woman who gets another chance to redeem herself by doing good deeds to the people she wronged.

While 100 Days to Heaven continues to soar in the ratings, Coney was asked if she feels pressured to keep on top of their game. “Wala ka namang sigurong sinimulan mong trabahong hindi maging ganon, I’m really hopeful. ‘Yung pressure, siyempre andyan lagi, pero sa akin, nasa ABS-CBN ang pressure,” she said with humor. “We’re all trying to do a good job. Hindi ko mahahawakan ‘yan, eh. Ang kaya kong gawin, gagawin ang makakaya ko bilang Anna Manalastas as best as I could.” She went on to say that if all her co-stars and the entire staff did the same thing, she is sure that the will continue to keep the quality of their show. “’Pag ginawa ko yon at ginawa ng bawat artista ng production staff crew, it’s a joint effort, director.” Coney also beamed that their entire group is friendly, which makes work for everyone a breeze. “Wala ditong mahirap na pakisamahang artista, staff, crew. Ang gaan. Kaya sobrang masaya ako.”

Meantime, Coney defended her role from people who say that her role is a mere kontrabida. “’Pag pinanood mo siya maiintindihan mo kung bakit.” She added that her role is crucial so that they can highlight what their show wants to impart. “Kailangan para ma-portray at maipakita ang kabutihan.”

Through their show, Coney said that they want to give hope to viewers. “Mabigyan ng tinge of hope ‘yung tao para mapangiti sila ay may pag-asa pala. Pwede palang solusyunan ito. It begins with you. What you’re going to do, your attitude, kung paano mo gagawin ang mga bagay-bagay.”
