Kaye Abad admits playing an antagonist is a challenge for her


061213-kaye_main.jpgKaye Abad is back on TV as Stella in the drama series Annaliza. During the thanksgiving party of the teleserye for a successful pilot week, she shared how her journey as the teleserye’s kontrabida started. “Nag-hesitate ako nong una. Tinawagan ko si direk Ted (Boborol), sabi ko, ‘Direk kaya ko ba?’ Yun ‘yung malaking question sa akin. Sabi ko, ‘Direk maganda ‘yung role pero hindi ko alam kung kaya ko, kung mabibigyan ko ng justice ‘yung role,’” she relayed.

Kaye admitted that it was difficult at first to manage her role because of her look, which to her is not for kontrabida roles. “Hindi rin madaling maging kontrabida lalo na kung mukha mo maamo, hindi matapang, kasi idadaan mo talaga siya sa acting. So kumbaga doble ang effort eh. Hindi katulad nong ibang may matatapang na features, isang tingin lang ng ganyan alam mo ng matapang, alam mo ng kontrabida. So ako doble effort. So sabi naman ni direk Ted, ‘Kaya mo yan at magtutulungan tayo,’” she admitted.

So far, Kaye is now able to get the feel of her role through constant internalization exercises. “Ini-internalize ko lang talaga na hindi ako mayaman. Ang peg nila dito parang palengkera talaga, ganon magsalita. Di ba sobrang opposite ko? So kailangan pag nasa set ako, kailangan hindi ako ganito, kailangan talak para magtuloy-tuloy na magmukhang normal siya on screen,” she said.

Kaye’s effort has paid off as she’s getting good feedback. On what the viewers will look forward to her role, Kaye shared, “Maganda naman ‘yung itatakbo ng character ko, hindi naman siya to begin with evil na eh. Kumbaga may story bakit siya naging ganon. So hindi normal sa kanya ang pagiging evil.”

Now that she’s doing more mature roles, Kaye accepts the many challenges that come along with it. “Nakakatuwa na nakakalungkot kasi grabe tatlo na ang lumalabas na anak ko [dito sa teleserye]. Sa Tabing Ilog isa lang tapos nag Angelito ako tapos ngayon tatlo. Pero nakakatuwa kasi nag i-evolve ‘yung ginagagawa mo. Hindi lang forever na patweetums, hindi lang forever na inaapi. At least ito kakaiba, challenging, kumbaga nagiging character actress ako,” she remarked.
