Alessandra de Rossi confessed that she was not really keen on portraying the role of Valentina in the television adaptation of Darna in 2005. However, it paved the way for her to buy her own house and that's why she doesn't regret doing it.
In an interview with Monster RX 93.1, she admitted, “Everyone knows naman na ayaw ko gawin 'yung Valentina from the beginning. Pero kasi when you look back, lalo na nitong pandemic, because of Valentina, nagtuloy-tuloy 'yung shows ko sa GMA although same role naman over and over, palit lang ng hair. It’s the same role na masama ugali, pumapatay, inggitera or whatever."
"But nakabili ako ng house. Ten years to pay. As soon as I paid the house in full, tapos na ako sa TV, ayaw ko na,” she said.
She added that she realized the essence of that project especially at this time of pandemic because it gave her a home.
“How can you regret that part kung nabigyan ka niya nang wala kang monthly rent during pandemic? Salamat pa rin at nangyari siya," Alessandra stated.
"Sana hindi because 'yun nga as I said, gusto ko lagi good vibes sana and maganda 'yung message ng character, maganda 'yung message ng story. Kasi 'yun na lang ang iiwan mo kapag namatay ko so siyempre gusto mo okay. But because of Valentina, may bahay ako. Okay na 'yun,” the actress stated.
Many have been lauding Alessandra's filmography.
Her recent film Through Night and Day became number one on Netflix's Top 10 in the Philippines Today list.
Alessandra relayed that she really goes all out in her projects.
"Dedicated ako only because gusto ko 'yung ginagawa ko.' Yung iba kasi basta project, blessing iyan, work iyan. Okay ako sa ganung point of view. Pero ako kasi, kung hindi ko talaga type 'yung story or feeling ko [walang] matutulong sa world or sa filmography ko, huwag na natin gawin. Kung hindi lang din ako dedicated diyan, matutulog na lang ako sa house,” she stated.
