Kim Chiu talks about her successful team-up with Jolo Revilla on 'My Binondo Girl'


091611-kim_main.jpgDespite initial worries about having a new love team partner, Kim Chiu was relieved to know that a lot of Kapamilya viewers approve of Jolo Revilla as her on screen partner in My Binondo Girl. The fact that Jolo plays her childhood friend who is secretly in love with her adds to the kilig-ness of their tandem. “Ngayon lang talaga ako na-pair sa moreno. Masaya naman dahil nagkaroon ako ng chance mag-experiment sa ibang bagay. Nakakatuwa dahil nag-e-enjoy sila sa ginagawa namin ni Jolo,” said Kim in an interview with Push.com.ph on September 15.

Kim further shared that she and Jolo are no longer awkward towards each other. In fact, she’s comfortable enough to joke around with him even off cam. “Si Jolo, sa tatlo kong leading men (including Matteo Guidicelli and Xian Lim), siya yung pinoy na pinoy yung feel. Sasabihin niyan sa akin, ‘O matulog ka muna kasi mahaba pa ang set-up, magpahinga ka. Okay ka lang? Antok ka na ’no? Gusto mo ng tubig?’ Sasabihin ko sa kanya, ‘Okay lang ako.’ Tapos minsan nagugulat siya sa mga punchlines ko, sa mga palo ko off cam. Pero okay lang sa kanya, hindi siya nagagalit.

Because of her dual role as Jade/Yuan, the young actress related that her leading men would treat her as one of the boys. She actually enjoys their bantering on the set except when they change clothes in front of her. “Kumportable ako sa kanilang tatlo kasi iisa lang yung dressing room namin. Parang sadya na maging at ease kami sa isa’t isa kasi kapag magkakaiba, parang hindi kami magkakakilala dahil kapag may kinukuhanang eksena lang kami nagkakasama. Minsan kapag ako si Yuan, bigla na lang sila maghuhubad sa harap ko. Sasabihin ko, ‘Hoy nandito ako!’ Nakakahiya! Pero sasabihin nila sa akin, ‘Okay lang si Yuan ka naman.’”

While the nature of her character has its share of challenges, Kim said that all her hard work is worth the positive feedback that she gets from the avid viewers of My Binondo Girl. “Kasi sa isang araw nakakailang palit ako ng babae tapos lalaki na look. Kapag ako si Jade, naka-make up na ako, meron akong mascara at eye shadow. So buburahin ko lahat yun kapag ako na si Yuan tapos maglalagay ako ulit ng foundation and powder. Tapos kapag babae ako sa eksena, lalalgyan ulit ako ng eyeshadow, kilay…so medyo nakakapagod. Pero kapag nalalaman ko na maraming natutuwa sa show, mapag-viewers man o mismong management ng ABS-CBN, masasabi kong worth it naman lahat nang yun,” she beamed.
