Kaye Abad on Andrea Brillantes: 'Nakikita ko sa kanya na willing to learn'


073113-kaye_main.jpgPlaying the role of Stella in the hit remake of Annaliza has turned Kaye Abad into a certified kontrabida. In an interview, the actress relayed that she’s receiving a lot of feedback from the fans of the show. “Ini-expect ko na may magagalit sa akin, mas marami pa rin naman ‘yung may comments na naiinis ako sa ’yo pero love pa rin kita, may mga ganon, may bawi pa rin.”

The actress admitted that playing the villain is tough. “Mas mahirap palang maging kontrabida kaysa umiyak kasi paggalit ka lagi, lalo na ako ang lumanay kong magsalita, so ‘yung effort talaga, tapos ‘yung muscles mo gigil na gigil palagi. So sobrang nadri-drain ako after kasi iba ‘yung tensyon ng muscle mo,” she said.

According to the actress, what makes her role tougher is doing heavy scenes with the Andrea Brillantes, the lead star of the show. “Ang hirap pag bata ‘yung sinasaktan mo kasi alam mong walang kalaban-laban, iiyak lang, luluhod lang sa harap mo ganon lang siya. May isang eksena nga after ko siyang saktan umiyak talaga ako. Ang hirap.”

She praised Andrea’s dedication to her role. “Masarap katrabaho [si Andrea], kung ano si Annaliza yun siya eh, jolly, madaling katrabaho at nakikita ko sa kanya willing to learn tapos pag may instruction sinusunod niya kung anong gagawin.”

She said that she worked with Andrea before but they never had the chance to do scenes together. “Nakatrabaho ko siya before pero di ko siya naka-eksena. Na-meet ko siya sa Alyna, so nakita ko lang siya before tapos ito ulit. Mas nag-mature siya, dati kasi baby pa lang, now mas nag-mature. So now nakatrabaho ko na rin siya mga ilang buwan na rin, three months na yata,” she said.

The actress shared that Andrea has truly grown as an actress, “Mas natural na sa kanya ‘yung character niya kumbaga alam na niya ‘yung character niya dati kasi medyo nangangapa pa siya kasi dati nire-remind pa siya na ‘you have to be jolly, ganito ganyan.’ Ngayon alam na niya, mas natural na sa kanya ang katauhan ni Annaliza.”

Kaye is very happy with the positive response and the high ratings the show is earning. “Nakakatuwa kasi lalo na pag-remake ang hirap-hirap tapatan lalo na may expectations ang tao pag-remake. Hindi namin alam kung matatanggap ng tao na may binago kami konti, pero so far ‘yun nga matta ‘yung mga ratings so salamat.”
