With a career in showbiz that has spanned over two decades, character actress Rubi Rubi has consistently shown her versatile talent as an actress in numerous projects throughout the years. This year, she is proud to play the role of Sylvia Sanchez’s best friend in iWantTFC’s latest family drama Misis Piggy.

“Ang role ni Rowena David, katabing puwesto ako nung babuyan ni Misis Piggy. Ako yung may-ari ng manukan naman. Sobrang best friend ni Marivic na yung tatlong anak niya ako yung ninang. Tapos lahat ng pinaglalaban niya, ako pa yung mas gigil,” she shared during the Misis Piggy mediacon.

Working again closely with lead star Sylvia on the show, Rubi Rubi confirmed all the positive feedback the veteran actress’s colleagues have already said in the past.

“Kasi di ba may lead tapos may sounding board, usually may best friend. Hindi mahirap gawin yung best friend ni Ms. Sylvia Sanchez kasi nakasama ko siya sa Hanggang Saan. Napakabuti kasing tao nito na sasabihin mo na gusto ko itong maging kaibigan, ganun. Eh ako kasi mahiyain ako sa personal. Hindi ako yung tipong nakiki-chummy sa mga sikat. So may distance ako na pag kakausapin ako, kakausapin ko siya. Ang gaan gaang kasama siya kasi feeling mo best friend mo talaga siya, hindi kayo umaarte. Generous siya na actor, Nagkukuhaan kayo ng mga energy,” she explained.

Playing every role given to her convincingly, whether it is that of a best friend or a resident antagonist, Rubi Rubi revealed who is her biggest inspiration in life to work hard regardless of all the challenges.

“Every time na ginagawa ko yung eksena, kinakargahan ko ng taong i-ga-guide ko, kung sino ang i-po-protect ko, ang nanay ko. Nanay is 89 years old na siya. Sobrang hina na niya, hindi na siya makalakad so dumadating yung time na ano ba yung pinaglalaban niya? Ang pinaglalaban niya is until yung dulo ng buhay niya is ipaglalaban niya yung pamilya niya, pero hindi na niya magawa kasi mahina na siya. This pandemic, talagang inanon ko yung buhay ko sa nanay ko. Sa pandemic nag-decide ako na hindi ako tatanggap ng projects kahit na talagang naghihikahos na ako kasi iniingatan ko yung nanay ko. Even ngayon pag hindi safe yung environment, hindi ako pupunta or pag hindi ko kilala yung mga gagawa nun baka hindi safe,” she shared.
