Playing the role of a mistress in the upcoming movie Etiquette for Mistresses, Kim Chiu said that she will be showing a different side of her in this project. When asked about the transition to doing this challenging role, she commented, “Medyo it’s parang black and white. parang white is the rom-com and this is the black part kung saan serious role siya so parang maninibago talaga ang audience ko on how I attack this movie pero nandon pa rin ‘yung element ko na funny kasi ayaw ko talagang tanggalin ‘yun pero not super funny naman. Gusto ko lang may light mode don sa movie.”
On what was Xian Lim’s reaction when she accepted the Etiquette for Mistresses project, Kim shared, “Sabi niya ‘Wow grabe mistress ka na,’ ‘yun lang sabi niya and parang support naman siya.”
Now that she has done a very challenging role, is she open to doing a sexy character in the future? “Pag-u-usapan muna natin ‘yan, parang hindi ko pa kaya… Depende sa story line and depende sa moral lesson ng kuwento,” she replied.
In her years of being an actress, Kim considers her co-actors in the projects she did before as her mentors in the industry. “My mentors [ay] ‘yung mga co-workers ko. Sa lahat ng project ko meron talagang isang tao na iga-guide ka, ‘yon ‘yung mga co-actors mo, ‘yung mga mas matagal na kaysa sa ’yo.”
As she welcomes this new exciting project in her career, Kim extended her gratitude to her supporters who have been with her throughout the years. “Sa lahat ng mga taong nagmamahal at sumusuporta at walang sawang pinupuntahan ako kung nasaan man ako, maraming salamat po. From day one nandiyan kayo and padami kayo ng padami so I’m very happy and very blessed and lucky to have you all. I feel appreciated by all of you and I feel loved by all of you and I love you all and maraming, maraming salamat.”
