Dimples Romana talks about the viral wig of Daniela.
Dimple Romana's wig in Kadenang Ginto has been a constant topic online among fans of the afternoon soap. In an interview with Cinemanews, the actress talked about her trending wig for the first time.
"Meron na ngang Facebook fan page 'yung wig lang ni Daniela (her character in the show), we are just so cool [about it] because you know the wig of Daniela is a very big part of how I do my character. Nakakatuwa kasi meron pa ngang nagta-tag sa akin or naghe-hairstyle sila ala Daniela tapos ginagaya nila 'yung acting. It's always very flattering and humbling at the same time because you know as actors we always want to be able affect our audience in a way that's more personal to them," she said.
According to Dimples, she needs to don the wig in the soap because her Kadenang Ginto family wanted a new look for Daniela that was something fiercer.
Dimples recently cut her hair short. Asked why it took some time for her to cut her hair short, she explained, "I've always wanted to cut my hair for the role, it's just nagkataon nang nagbukas kami ng book 2 for Kadenang Ginto, nakapag-start na ako mag-shoot for Block Z which is a movie I am doing with Joshua Garcia and Julia Barretto and sina kuya Ian (Veneracion). So of course out of respect ayaw ko munang ipa-cut ang hair ko, ipinaalam ko muna sa may continuity so nong ipinaalam and then finally they said yes okay na mag-cut," she said.
Dimples also had a touching story from her childhood about wearing a wig. "Nong mga bata kami sanay ako mag-wig because I had a sister who had leukemia so she lost all her hair nong bata pa kami. So ang laro talaga namin noon nagsu-suot kami ng wig, nagwi-wig din siya, para she won't feel na parang siya lang gumagawa non," she stated.
