Aiko Melendez on Cristine Reyes: 'Hindi siya mahirap pakisamahan'


071011-aiko_main.jpgWhat Aiko Melendez admires most about her Reputasyon co-star Cristine Reyes is that she is true to herself. “Hindi siya mahirap pakisamahan, what you see is what you get,” Aiko described Cristine. She continued that if Cristine is sad, she just remains quiet in one corner. “’Pag mainit ang ulo niya, dun lang siya sa isang tabi, pag masaya siya, sobrang saya naman siya so hindi mahirap pakisamahan.” Aiko continued that she appreciates Cristine’s personality because unlike other celebrities, Cristine’s attitude makes her easy to get along with. “Hindi kagaya ng iba na maraming front, ‘yung paplastikin ka o hindi mo kayang basahin.

Reputasyon also serves as Aiko’s comeback project after taking a break from the limelight. “Sobrang happy ako na ang comeback ko ay dito via Reputasyon. ‘Yung role ko dito is something different and something na talagang excited akong gawin dahil mapaglalaruan ko siya in terms of acting. I play the role of Catherine Delamayor. Kami ni Cristine ang maglalaban ng reputasyon ng bawat isa dahil marami ang mangyayari ritong twist na dapat pakaingatan mo ang reputasyon ng isang tao.

As early as now the actress is already getting good reviews for her performance as seen in the teleserye’s trailer. “’Yun ang maganda pag matagal kang nawala tapos maganda pa ‘yung role mo. Maganda pa ‘yung mga artistang makakasama mo, so nae-excite ka nadadala lahat,” she explained.

Despite feeling the pressure, Aiko is still confident about their project because all of the people behind this teleserye really worked hard to come up with a quality program. “Hindi lang casting ang magaling the script itself and the direction, everything was really prepared and talagang tailored sa bawat isa sa amin kaya excited ako.”

Aiko will be the antagonist in the series but added that there is also depth in her character. “Meron siyang pinanggagalingan. Hindi siya ‘yung tipikal na kontrabida na parang masabi lang na may kontrabida. ‘Yung sa akin meron redeeming factor. ‘Yun ang kailangang pagkatutukan dito kasi may dahilan kung bakit ako naging ganito.”
