Miles Ocampo is keeping her fingers crossed that the public would see her differently after taking on the role of Joanna in And I Love You So.
During the show’s finale press conference, Miles revealed that she had to make adjustments during the first few weeks of taping because she was not used to doing teleseryes.
Apart from being part of the teen-oriented show Luv U, Miles is also a mainstay in the weekend sitcom Home Sweetie Home starring John Lloyd Cruz and Toni Gonzaga.
“Siguro ang mga tao, ang tingin sakin ako lang ‘yung bata from Goin’ Bulilit and aminin ko rin naman na nung panahon na nagsisimula palang kami, meron talagang mga adjustments na nangyari kasi lumaki nga ako sa sweet-sweet lang,” she started.
“So, siguro napatunayan ko naman na kaya ko rin namang mag-drama at kaya kong lumagpas sa image ko na pasweet-sweet lang, pajoke-joke lang. Sana nabigyan ko ng hustisya,” she added.
Like co-star Julia Barretto, Miles also learned a lot from her character Joanna in terms of understanding the people around her.
“Ang nakuha ko parang, ‘wag kaagad mag-judge agad ng tao. Kung halimbawa ‘yung character ni Trixie, kung halimbawa jinudge ko siya agad ‘Ay inaaway niya ako, lalabanan ko siya!’ Hindi eh, kasi ‘yung pagiging bad ng character ni Trixie, may reason bakit siya ganon. Kasi kulang siya sa attention,” Miles pointed out.
According to Miles, she learned that “Kailangan mo munang intindihin ang isang bagay bago ka mag-decide kung ano ba talaga ang gagawin mo.”
But when it comes to topics pertaining to family, Miles said love and acceptance still reign supreme.
