Kim Chiu says okay to possible kissing scenes with a girl for 'My Binondo Girl'


081411-kim_main.jpgAfter taking a break from primetime TV for almost a year, Kim Chiu said that landing a dual role in My Binondo Girl is worth the wait since she’ll be showing a different side to the viewers. “Ako dito si Jade and Yuan kapag lalaki. Isa siyang anak na longing for a father's love. Dito sa soap, ipinakita namin dito yung totoong Chinese culture—yung pagkakaroon nila ng one child policy at kung gaano kaimportante sa kanila ang pagkakaroon ng anak na lalaki. Kaya dito, noong unang nagkita kami ng tatay ko, ayaw niya sa akin, gusto niya yung lalaki kong kapatid. Doon magsisimula yung journey ng character ko,” said Kim during the press con of My Binondo Girl last August 11.

Kim further shared that it took her a while to get used to acting like a boy since she’s very feminine by nature. In the beginning, she shared that director Malou Sevilla often called her attention every time she forgets to imbibe the usual stance of a boy. “Hindi ko talaga naisip na magkakaroon ako ng role na magiging lalaki ako. So challenge para sa akin yung pagsuot ng suit tapos binebenda yung dibdib ko para maging flat yung boobs ko. Tapos nilalagyan pa ako ng bigote, makapal na kilay at wig. Kaya kung iisipin mo ang hirap. Pero tinutulungan naman ako ni Direk Malou at supportive naman lahat ng kasama ko sa soap kaya mas gumagaan yung work.”

The young actress couldn’t help but laugh though when asked if she’s willing to kiss a girl for the sake of her role. “Ay! Kung sa ikagaganda ng show na ito bakit naman hindi? Napanindigan ko na rin lang maging lalaki. Role lang naman ito at saka para sa ikagugulat at ikatutuwa ng viewers okay sa akin. Ayoko na maging choosy! Kahit sino [ang halikan ko na actress] okay lang.” But if there’s anyone from showbiz whose beauty she admires, Kim answered that Angel Aquino, Marian Rivera, and Iza Calzado would definitely top her list.

One thing’s for sure though, Kim will do whatever it takes to prove that she’s worthy of her status as the most successful Primetime Princess of ABS-CBN. “Kinakabahan ako siyempre kasi hindi ko alam kung papaano ako tatanggapin ulit ng tao. Nakakapanibago yung mga leading men ko pati role ko kaya kinakabahan at natatakot ako. Pero confident ako sa kakalabasan kasi ang dami kong workshops na pinagdaanan. At maganda yung kwento ng My Binondo Girl kaya kahit ako nadadala. Na-realize ko na kahit babae ka, dapat empowered ka at matuto kang lumaban. Kung kaya ng lalaki, kaya din babae.
