It’s been 24 years since she first started acting in the ABS-CBN series Esperanza and Dimples Romana’s career in showbiz has grown steadily, having been cast in a wide variety of roles in television and movies. Currently part of the cast of the upcoming series Viral, the Kapamilya actress revealed how she is paying it forward for the next generation.
“Acting is my first craft. Learning it then, and learning it now. It’s a constant love affair that I have that I hope to be able to share with new generations of actors and actresses through the Personality Development and Acting School I’m putting together. Taking it from the experiences of the greatest actors and actresses that I’ve had the pleasure and honor of working with in my 24 years in the business, the keys to making it successfully in acting are pure hard work, maayos na pakitungo sa mga tao sa harap man o likod ng camera, good professional work ethics, humility in everything that you do, and openness to change and evolution,” she shared during the her contract renewal with Skin Magical.
Known for being a versatile actress, the Skin Magical brand ambassadress admitted she enjoys doing more than just good girl roles just like her iconic role as Daniela Mondragon in last year’s series Kadenang Ginto.
“I tend to go for characters and roles that are fun to do and exciting to create. Kadalasan I enjoy playing the kontrabida but I also enjoy being funny and witty and everything in between. As you all know, hindi ako mapili sa trabaho. I don’t mind playing a role that only has one scene if it meant that that one scene will play a big part in the project or if it will leave a mark in the hearts of our audience. I inject a little bit of ‘Dimples’ in every character. Like a signature of some sort,” she said.
Just recently Dimples made headlines again when photos of her getting emotional during her best friend Angel Locsin’s civil wedding to Neil Arce were posted online. The Kapamilya actresses first became close to each other while working together on the set of the fantasy series Lobo in 2008. Since then, they have continued to maintain a close relationship and being supportive of each other’s family through the years. It’s this kind of close friendships that Dimples said is also important to her. “For me, having successful friendships would mean having constant communication, authenticity, honesty, loyalty and to always have a forgiving heart,” she added.
