Dimples Romana talks about her first time working with the popular love team.
Currently playing the role of babaylan Gloria in the primetime fantaserye Bagani, Dimples Romana said she is happy to get the chance to work with lead stars Enrique Gil and Liza Soberano. “It’s my first time to work with LizQuen. These kids are so hardworking, so grounded. Sometimes I forget they’re actually Liza and Enrique kasi they don’t make me feel like they’re the leads of the show. They’re very kind, makulit. Kung ano yung kulit ng buong barkada like sina Rayver (Cruz), sina Matteo (Guidicelli), ganun din sila. And I think one of the biggest blessings of being in Bagani now, even when we’re taping everyday is really the friendships that are created,” she shared during the Asia’s Lashes contract-signing event held last July 28.
The talented actress said that on the Bagani set, she has seen how down-to-earth and unpretentious LizQuen and the rest of their young cast really is. “These kids are really just kids. They act their age. Hindi sila nagpapanggap na parang know-it-all. Very curious sila, matanong sila. Kasi di ba usually iniisip mo pag ganito na ka-big stars ang mga ito, iniisip mo alam na nila lahat yun kasi basically parang na-fast track na sila into that position. Nakakatuwang isipin na every single cast member in Bagani is really working very hard for their families like Makisig (Morales). His family is already in Sydney and to know that he’s still helping out his family, and same with Zaijian (Jaranilla) who works very hard for his family and Hopie also (Liza Soberano) and Enrique (Gil). So when you are among people who have the same drive as you have, it drives you even more. Parang lalo ka pang gaganahan,” she explained.
Dimples also shared just how in tune Liza and Quen are with their fans. “Alam mo ba ang LizQuen na-realize ko they’re very giving to their fans. Yung alam nila kung anong gusto ng fans nila. Alam naman ng tao na sweet sila sa isa’t isa eh pero siyempre we’re still actors so minsan pagdating sa set merong mga real-life couples na cannot bring that in, yung sweetness nila in real life. Pero ito hindi, nadadala nila yun sa screen. May charm talaga sila,” she added.
The 33-year-old actress also shared what she thinks is the real charm of the two young stars. “Si Liza ang ganda talaga ng batang yan. I’m looking at Hopie and she’s saying, ‘Grabe ate Dimps I’m super puyat pa nga,’ sabi ko, ‘Okay stop talking. Hanggang diyan ka na lang. Huwag ka magsasalita Hopie dahil hindi ko ma-a-appreciate yung mga sasabihin mo na you feel ugly, you feel ano.’ But she basically doesn’t know how beautiful she is and I think that’s part of her charm. She’s very humble and ang sweet sweet niyang bata na yan. Si Enrique pag nasa set, bago siya makaupo, lahat muna ng babae nakaupo. Ever since. And I’m only seeing this now and everybody’s telling me na he’s really that way,” she revealed.
