It’s been almost five years since she first joined showbiz via the 2016 season of Pinoy Big Brother: Lucky 7 and former teen housemate Heaven Peralejo was thankful to finally get one of her biggest roles onscreen. Heaven said she never expected her role to become a major part of the show.

“Grabe kasi two days before mag-start yung taping namin for the first cycle, dun ko lang nakuha si Tisay yung character ko. So sobrang major surprise talaga yun kasi supposedly I’m just part of the cast. So nung binigay nila sa akin yun, sobrang laking pressure and thankfully si Tony (Labrusca) naman yung naging partner ko nun and nandun naman siya to help me. So yung mga chemistry namin winork namin nila direk. And nandun naman yung whole cast para tinulungan din naman ako and nagtutulungan din naman kami. First teleserye ko ito kaya sobrang thankful ko din naman dito. Nakakaiyak at nakakatuwa na natapos itong show na ito. Mixed emotions,” she said.

Even after revealing that she had tested positive for COVID-19 while working on the set of the show, Heaven said the unfortunate experience does not discourage her from accepting future acting projects.

“Siyempre go lang ng go, laban lang ng laban, work lang ng work para sa pamilya. Sa buong Bagong Umaga journey ko, natutunan ko kasi tao lang naman tayo, lahat nagkakamali. Pero nasa pagmamahal na yung acceptance kumbaga. At yung alam mo na rin sa sarili mo. Sa buhay matututo at matututo at madadapa ka rin pero at the end of the day ang importante naman is kung paano ka nag-rise up dun sa situation na yun,” she explained.

During Bagong Umaga’s six-month run, Heaven said it was a very professional atmosphere on the set of their lock-in tapings held inside the ABS-CBN compound.

“Once na dumating kami ng set, pinag-usapan na namin nila direk Paco at nila direk Carlo na dapat focused kami. So wala kaming time na magloko loko muna kasi ang dami naming scene na gagawin for the day and meron kaming hinahabol na for this cycle meron kaming ilang days so kailangan pagdating mo sa set memorized mo na lahat and kilala mo na character mo. Usually yung mga kalokohan namin pag day off na, ganyan. Pag may mga time na talaga. Pero kami sa buong cast work talaga,” she said.

The 21-year-old actress also shared her wish list for acting roles during the Bagong Umaga finale presscon. “Siguro more drama pa, kaya pa ata ng mata ko na umiyak (laughs). Gusto ko rin maka-try ng anything na action or horror kasi hindi ko pa nagagawa yun eh. So gusto ko sanag mag-explore explore kung ano pang kaya kong gawin at i-push yung limits na yun,” she said.
