Alexa Ilacad admitted that she experienced burnout due to the new normal setup amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
“I think that’s normal when you get tired, na-bu-burnout. Especially with the new normal, the lock-in tapings, my experience is I’m alone," Alexa admitted in an interview during a virtual conference.
She added that she currently does not have a personal assistant so it can get tiring sometimes.
The actress shared that when she is at home, she really makes the time to get enough rest to recharge.
“It can get sad honestly. I would segue for a movie, tapos 'Init Sa Magdamag' (her new show) then back and forth so I was alone for a long time and I felt really tired. So every time I get the chance to come home, I really just rest and read the script,” she said.
Amid the challenges brought by the pandemic, Alexa said that she is thankful to the staff of Init sa Magdamag for being so understanding.
“They didn’t make us feel pressured at all. They asked, ‘Do you need a day off to just study everything?’ Sobrang na-appreciate ko talaga 'yun kasi I really needed it,” she said.
She added, “I think that really helps and it energizes us as actors na ma-inspire lalo sa ginagawa namin and sa mga scenes to come."
