Compared to her previous roles in showbiz, Chie Filomeno admitted she is very grateful to finally get a lead role in the iWantTFC series Beach Bros.

“Very different ito kasi ito yung isa sa pinakaunang biggest role na binigay sa akin. Sobrang ibang iba naman siya sa Love in 40 Days. Si Nicole lumaki siya sa bahay ampunan and very interesting yung life niya. May mga tao talagang hindi nabibigyan ng choice. Hindi tayo nabibigyan ng choice. Yun yung masakit na part sa kanya.

“Ang gusto ko sa kanya palaban siyang babae at gagawin niya ang lahat para sa taong mahal niya. Yun yung pinaka gusto ko kay Nicole. Yung wala kang choice nung una pero gagawin mo pa rin yung kaya mong gawin para mabigyan ng marangyang buhay ang kapatid mo at ang family mo, mga kaibigan mo,” she said.

Despite being unfairly judged when she was still in school, Chie shared why she did not let the bullying in the past define her.

“I think yung aura ko talaga ever since bata ako yun na talaga. Kahit sa school ang akala nila maldita ako, nang-bu-bully ako dahil tahimik ako. So na-apply ko yung dapat mo talagang kilalanin yung tao. So nakakatuwa kasi meron silang ganitong way of thinking sa akin, ganito nila ako nakikita, pero ganito pala siya. So okay rin sa akin yun kasi na-prove ko sa kanila na mali yung iniisip niyo,” she recalled.

After her experience as a celebrity housemate in Pinoy Big Brother last year, Chie admitted she will always look back on the whole show with gratefulness.

“Nabago talaga ng PBB yung buhay ko. Nabigyan ako ng opportunity na thankful ako and yung feeling na overwhelmed. Yun talaga yung feeling na nararamdaman ko kasi binigyan ako ng ganung kalaking trust. Especially now with Beach Bros. Lahat ng project ko with Dreamscape. I’m really grateful for them and thank you for the trust yun yung nag-uumapaw and I’m grateful,” she added.

Currently single, the 25-year-old actress also shared why she prefers to date men outside of the industry.

“Sinabi ko na yan dati, non-showbiz ang gusto ko. And first na naging boyfriend ko showbiz tapos sabi ko ayoko na ng showbiz. wala eh, hindi mo talaga matuturuan yung heart mo. As much as possible gusto non-showbiz para meron pa akong ibang matutunan. Kung kanino ako ma-fo-fall in love, feeling ko madami akong matututunan din,” she explained. 

The iWantTFC original series Beach Bros stars Kyle Echarri, Chie Filomeno, Kira Balinger, Angelica Lao, Brent Manalo, Raven Rigor, Sean Tristan, and Lance Carr. Directed by Victor Villanueva for streaming on iWantTFC.
