Ayen Munji-Laurel on playing a contrabida role: ‘it’s so challenging kasi it’s not me.'


091016-AyenLaurel_main.jpgOn Tonight with Boy Abunda, one of the stars of the teleserye Born For You, Ayen Munji – Laurel, expressed her agreement with host Boy Abunda when said that he did not expect her to play a contrabida role.

Ako din hindi ko ineexpect. Hindi parang ang layo kasi kumakanta naman ako talaga. That’s why it’s so challenging kasi it’s not me. It’s not me at all.”

She added, “I’ve tried naman playing yung naaapi – nakakapagod din yun.” Boy then asked, “if you were to choose between the two: inaaapi at nasasaktan, or contrabida, which would you choose?”

Mas masarap yung nang-aapi, mas nag-eenjoy akong mang-api,” she joked.

Ayen is also a theater actress. On whether she has plans to be part of a theater production anytime soon, she said, “you know ang daming gustong iniimbitahan akong mag-appear sa theater productions. Pero hindi ko mapagsabay because mahirap mag taping at umarte sa entablado at the same time. Kasi rehearsals take a lot of my time.”

The actress is also busy being a wife to Franco Laurel and is a doting mother to their kids especially to their youngest daughter, Sofia. She exclaimed, “and I have a baby! [Actually] hindi na baby, 2 ½ toddler na siya. I’m a mom more than anything else.”

During the segment Fast Talk, Ayen was asked, “oo o hindi, kinikilig ka ba kina Elmo (Magalona) and Janella (Salvador)?” Ayen replied, “oo naman. I love both of them.”

Then she was asked, “oo o hindi, bagay na maging boyfriend/girlfriend sina Elmo at Janella?” she answered, “bagay. Oo.”
