As one of the busiest actresses turned entrepreneurs in the country today, Dimples Romana is one of the blessed few who has not just a thriving career in acting but multiple endorsements and investments in and outside the country. But the 37-year-old Viral Scandal actress admitted that the thought of quitting showbiz has already crossed her mind.

“Sa totoo lang, gusto ko talaga sabihin na I want to step out of it pero parang totoo  ata yung mga sinasabi ng mga ini-idolo kong mga artista na pag minsan ka ng naging artista, hahanap-hanapin mo talaga. Imagine, kapag sa pandemya iisipin mo, when you are given an opportunity to work with a stellar cast, I cannot begin to tell you how amazing this cast is, bakit ko naman pipigilin yung sarili ko sa ganung klase ng pribilehiyo? Bihira na ang magkaroon ng trabaho ngayong panahong ito di ba? So ngayon talaga nagkakasukatan na ng tatapangan mo ba ang sarili mo para you go out there?

“In reality, when you are working in a production, whether it is film or commercials or TV, you really feel a certain deeper meaning to what we do and dati kasi it’s so much easier, you just go home after. It’s not as unsafe as it is right now. Kumbaga now when you say life and death, totoo talaga na life and death di ba? Pero ako parang siguro with everything that’s been going on with my family and investments na somehow naipundar dahil din sa trabaho na ito, parang yung pasasalamat ko na lang to just show up at work and be the artista that I grew up to be,” she said.

Dimples said her loyalty to the industry after more than two decades of being an actress has made it a lifelong career for her.

“Kasi 12 years old pa lang ako nag-aartista na ako. So ang puso ko talaga ay nasa pag-arte. I feel like now more than ever, actors have a bigger responsibility to transcending all these emotions. Because when our audience would watch a material like Viral Scandal, they are transported to a different world. And ngayon don’t we all want to be transported to a different world kahit one or two hours lang in a day? Para kahit papaano naiibsan yung pag-aalala natin, nakakalimutan natin yung pinoproblema natin. And basically I feel that as creatives and as actors, yun yung prino-provide namin, na kahit papaano maiibsan yung pag-aalala nung manunod kasi alam nila na ibang mundo ang pasukin ko through the emotions of these characters. After that, that’s when they can go back to their lives and deal with whatever they have to deal with. But at least they get to release and have a relief of the emotions that they’ve been feeling for the two years that they’ve been in a pandemic. So hindi pa,” explained.

The celebrity mom also said that she still needs to keep working hard to save up for a good education for her two kids.

“Nag-ka-college si Callie, nasa Australia. Baka mahimatay ako pag hindi ako nagtrabaho (laughs). Hindi ko ata kaya. Sabi ko, ‘Ah, mag-ready muna tayo.‘ Siguro pag nag-college na si Alonzo so matagal tagal pa di ba?” she said. Dimples and her husband Boyet Ahmee have a daughter named Callie who turns 18 next month and a six-year-old son named Alonzo.
