EXCLUSIVE: Dimples Romana on Star Magic: ‘Binigyan nila ako ng pagkakataong mangarap’

073016-DimplesRomana_Push.jpgWith her role as the eldest daughter of Sylvia Sanchez in the new Kapamilya family drama The Greatest Love, Dimples Romana admitted her character as Amanda Alegre who is always at odds with her mother was an eye-opener for her. "Yung sa character ko medyo nahihirapan nga ako nung una kasi parang kahit lagi kaming magkaaway ng mama ko hindi ako ganun katapang sa kanya magsalita. Pero nung in-explain sa akin yung mga pagdadaanan ng role ko na mapapanuod niya sa kuwento. Dun ko naintindihan talaga na may mga tao talaga na kahit na minsan na-ja-judge pero hindi mo naman alam kung anong pinagdaanan niyan. Dito sa serye na nito, mas ma-explain na kung bakit umabot sa ganung pagkakataon na talagang grabe,” she told Push.com.ph

As part of the Star Magic family for almost two decades now, Dimples said it has had a major influence on her life from teens to adulthood. "Napakahusay kasi nila Mr. M (Johnny Manahan) at Tita Mariole (Alberto) because even back then when I was 12 years old and Im now 31, noon naalala ko lahat ng mga puwede ibigay sa amin na workshops which was courtesy of our Star Magic family tapos lahat ng puwede ko gawin, nag-hosting workshop ako with tito Boy Abunda naman, so nag-hosting class ako dun. So the Star Magic family is all about giving you freedom and yet teaching you the discipline of being an artist. Binibigyan ka ng kalayaang ipakita kung anong kaya mong gawin. But at the same time tuturuan ka nila maging professional,” she explained.

The The Greatest Love actress said Star Magic also became a second family to her during the more difficult times in her life. "Star Magic came during the time when I just lost my sister to leukemia and I remember na dinala ako ng manager ko kay Mr. M at sa murang isipan ko na 12 years old inisip ko, ‘Bakit ba ako nandidito?And then Star Magic introduced me to a world where I never imagined I could fit in. Pero ginawa nilang posible yun para sa akin. Binigyan nila ako ng pagkakataong mangarap at maabot yung mga pangarap na yun,” she recalled.


Now at 31 years old and a growing family of her own, Dimples said she has grown a lot as a well-rounded person and actress because of the help she got from her talent management. "Nung pumasok ako wala naman akong alam gawin. Ang alam ko lang, ready ako matuto. Tapos hindi nawala yun sa akin. Nung nagsimula ako puro drama yung pinapagawa nila sa akin pero a few years later nagkaroon ng hosting class si tito Boy Abunda. Pinasok din nila ako dun. So now I host a lot of things like i-Shine and then for TFC Ive also hosted Swak na Swak so Ive always felt proud na hindi natatapos yung learning sa Star Magic,” she said.
