Carmina Villaroel is set to play her most daring role to date as Alexa in the upcoming ABS-CBN soap Bridges of Love. The host-actress is set to play Paulo Avelino’s lover in the new show which the actress admitted is very challenging especially when it comes to doing intimate scenes with the actor.
Carmina relayed that they already shot her love scene with Paulo on the first day. She admitted that she was initially nervous when the role was offered to her. “Oo first day that’s why kinailangan ko siguro ng one year rest for this project kasi kinailangan ko ng motivations and because it’s really something different. Ang tagal ko na sa industriya na ‘to but this is the role na talagang kinabahan ako kasi kung kailan naman ako nagkaroon ng dalawang supling [nangyari ito],” she said an interview during the pictorial of Bridges of Love.
The actress said her husband and kids understand that it is all part of her job and her family is not making a big deal out of it. “Oo trabaho lang naman so hindi naman kailangan mag-react ng ganito at sa mga anak ko naman huwag na lang nila panoorin but they know naman na it’s part of my work, di naman sa gusto ko mangyari ito, kinailangan lang and hindi lang sa masabi na mag-kiss kayo diyan at magpakita ng skin. I’m very honest naman with my kids and I’m sure they will understand pero di na nila kailangan panoorin.”
Despite the daringness that the role requires, Carmina is thankful that she gets to play a different character other than the mommy roles she usually plays in the past. “You know I’m very thankful because ako ‘yung nais nila to portray Alexa so nakaka-feeling bagets. This is really different because this time I’m not a mommy,” she stated.
