Cristine Reyes on 'Honesto' 'Bagay na bagay ako sa show kasi honest ako'


112313-Cristine_main.jpgAs the newest character in the Primetime Bida series Honesto, Cristine Reyes said she is not yet certain whether her role as Marie, the mysterious nurse who falls for her ward (played by Paulo Avelino) will be a hero or villain in the story. “Ipagpalagay na lang natin na magiging malaki ang parte ko sa buhay ni Paulo. So hindi ko masagot kung bida or kontrabida ako dito,” she shared.

The 24-year old actress said she is happy with all the good projects she has been given this year. “Thankful and nagugulat din ako sa lahat ng dumadating kaya right now sobrang excited ako and may drive ako na mas lalo pang pagbutihin yung mga projects na gagawin ko ngayon kasi na-appreciate nila yung mga ginawa ko this year and nung last year and last, last year. Dun ako kumukuha ng drive para pagbutihin pa lalo and sobra kong gusto itong ginagawa ko, yung pag-arte kasi alam ko nag-e-enjoy ako dun so thankful ako,” she admitted.

With regards to her Honesto co-star Paulo who just recently admitted to being single again, Cristine said she is not looking for romance on the set. She said this is her first time to work with the Kapamilya heartthrob who also came from her old network. “It doesn’t mean naman kapag partner mo ang isang lalake at single siya eh magiging kayo. As much as possible sana hindi kasi parang every project boyfriend mo yung guy so parang hindi siya okay. Hindi naman, kasi hindi naman lahat ng lalake eh nagiging boyfriend ko. Si Paulo hindi ko nga sure kung naabutan ko siya sa GMA but nakasama ko siya once dahil kay Jake Cuenca pero sa labas yun, hindi ko pa siya nakatrabaho,” she said.

When asked if they immediately had chemistry while doing their scenes, Cristine said it is heard to gauge that because Paulo is supposedly in a coma during their first scenes together. “Nakapag-taping na kami, siya yung una kong naka-eksena. Kaso hindi pa kami nag-uusap sa eksena so ako lang yung puro salita sa eksena, siya yung nakahiga lang dun. Naaksidente siya. Sa chemistry naman namin, abangan natin yan (laughs),” she said.

From Bukas Na lang Kita Mamahalin to Honesto, Cristine said she is welcome to doing more wholesome roles. “Siguro pero hindi ko alam sa future kung ano pa yung mga gagawin ko dito sa ABS-CBN. And ako naman kung ano naman ang ibigay sa akin at alam kong gusto ko at ma-cha-challenge ako, tatanggapin ko yun eh. Mas gusto ko na walang pahinga kesa sa puro pahinga. If ever naman na marami akong trabaho, nakakapag-request naman ako sa Viva (her management) ng extension na two days kapag may work ako abroad. Pinapayagan naman nila ako, hindi naman sila mahigpit,” she explained.

Known for her outspoken and frank personality, Cristine said she is a good fit to the show that espouses the value of honesty among children. “Sobra ba? Siguro kaya rin ako nasa Honesto (laughs) siguro bagay na bagay ako sa show kasi honest ako,” she said.

Cristine said unlike her bad girl persona, she is like any normal single girl off-cam. “Hindi kasi sanay yung mga tao na nakikita nila ako as me, Cristine Reyes na ako talaga so hindi alam ng mga tao na playful ako and mapagbiro. Kung alam lang nila kung gaano ka-kenkoy or ka-kikay, actually tame pa yung nakikita nila sa TV. Lalo na pag kasama ko yung mga kaibigan ko and lahat ng mga taong close sa akin, yung manager ko at Viva alam nila yun. So hindi ko maalis yan katulad nung sa Showtime at ng Gandang Gabi Vice, pati Buzz ng Bayan kasi kampante ako kila tito Boy (Abunda) pati kay ate Mina (Villaroel) at ate Janice (de Belen) kasi kilala ko sila ever since bata pa ako and kilala nila ako na sobrang playful ako,” she added.
