On Tonight with Boy Abunda, Bela Padilla shared her excitement in playing the part of Clara on her new teleserye, My Dear Heart.
“Ako po dito si Clara, ako po yung nanay ni Heart. Medyo close to home po yung character ko this time not like in Ang Probinsyano before na ang layo-layo nung character. Ngayon, Clara is very family-oriented, lumaki siya sa masayang pamilya kaya nung dumating sa buhay nila si Heart, lalong sumigla yung bahay nila.”
She added, “kahit sa set po, ang ganda ng nangyayari kasi yung bata na katrabaho namin, si Heart (Nayomi Ramos), napakalambing. Lagi po siyang nagki-kiss, laging nakayakap, […] unang araw pa lang sobrang warm niya na po sa amin kaya nakakatuwa.”
On a more personal note, the actress was asked, “since we’re talking about heart, how is your heart?”
The question caught the actress off guard, eliciting nervous giggles. She then reluctantly answered, “okay naman. Paliit ng paliit yung boses, ‘okay naman.’” Sensing Bela’s hesitation, Boy then said, “okay, that question will be answered on our next conversation.”
The actress recently revealed that she and her long-time boyfriend Neil Arce are no longer together.
During the segment, Fast Talk, the actress was asked, “[when was the] last time you lied?” The actress awkwardly replied, “noong tinanong niyo kung kumusta yung heart ko.”
