KC Concepcion on her newest role: 'Ayoko maging typical kontrabida'


062213-kc_main.jpgFar from the leading lady roles she has played in the past, KC Concepcion shows off a fiercer and stronger side as Alexis in the newest Primetime Bida series Huwag Ka Lang Mawawala. The model-turned-actress admitted the show’s star Judy Ann Santos played a big part in getting her to accept her first kontrabida role.  “It might’ve been harder to convince me talaga kasi of course. Si Ate Juday talaga was the one who really personally called me and explained na gusto ko ikaw ang maging kontrabida ko dito. I said I have to think about it and then yun, until nalaman na lang niya na I accepted the project,” she recalled. KC said she wants to convince viewers that she can portray a different kind of role. “Ayoko maging typical kontrabida. Kasi laging nakikita [yun] from Tita Cherie Gil, or yung kay Ate Gladys Reyes,” she said.

KC said she is happy that her character will have a proper backstory. “Ang bidang kontrabida ngayon is something na mas accepted na ng tao kasi mas naipapakita ng ABS-CBN, especially yung buhay ng isang masasabi mong bida kontrabida na nalalaman naman nila kung bakit naging ganun. Kumbaga sabi sa akin nung mga director namin, mamahalin din si Alexis dito. Although ine-expect ko na rin na madaming maiinis. Pero marami rin siyang back story eh like simula nung bata sila ni Eros, simula nung pagkabata nila magkasama na sila. Merong mga nangyayari na hindi niya rin ginagawa on purpose kasi nga masyado na silang magkakilala dito. Si Alexis siyempre ito yung ine-expect ng tao na kontrabida talaga pero siguro ang maganda kay Alexis, she is not the main kontrabida kasi you will not hate Alexis. She is somebody na makikita niyo yung pinanggagalingan ng babae kung bakit siya naging ganun. Kung bakit siya nangagalmot pag binubulabog. Kung bakit din siya yung marunong makipaglaban at ipaglaban yung sarili niya pag kinakailangan,” she explained.

KC admitted that Alexis has qualities that everyone can relate to, even if they are not necessarily positive traits. “I always say na there is an Alexis in everyone. Mapa-babae, mapa-querida, mapa-single girl, single parent or single woman or beki man yan. Yung pagmamaldita, sa totoo lang I have so much fun with it. As in tuwang tuwa ako sa character niya kasi  ito yung tipong nagpapakatotoo siya. Pinapakita niya sa viewer yung lahat ng sides niya. Yung viewer lang yung makakakita nun kasi kapag kaharap ni Alexis si Tito Romulus (Tirso Cruz III) niya, iba rin pag kaharap niya si Anessa (Judy Ann Santos), iba rin pag kaharap niya yung pinakamamahal niya sa buhay niya na si Eros (Sam Milby). So exciting siya for me at pag nag-action na feel na feel ko na yung ginagawa kong pang-bu-bully,” she said.

Working on the series has been a new kind of learning experience for KC. “Siguro I can say na mas nakilala ko yung sarili ko nung natuto na ako na talagang na-experience ko na yung bumagsak, yung na-experience ko na yung totoong emosyon, yung iba’t ibang emosyon na nararamdaman ng isang babae dahil sa sobrang pagmamahal. Kaya kung you want to say na nagmaldita ka dahil natuto kang magmura or natuto kang magalit or natuto kang ipaglaban ang sarili mo, then it’s okay. Pero I wouldn’t say na pagmamaldita yun, nagpapakatotoo lang siya. I learned. In-explain sa amin yung backgrounds ng mga characters namin sa magiging eksena so dun lang kami naka-focus. Natuto talaga ako mag-aral ng role,” she said.

The 28-year-old actress also admitted to what can trigger her “maldita” side. “Pag kunwari nananahimik ako tapos binulabog ako, mangangalmot talaga ako (laughs),” she admitted.
