KATRINA Halili shared giving birth to Katrence, her daughter with R&B singer Kris Lawrence, brought so much changes in her personal and professional life.

In a recent interview with the actress, the 28-year-old said she’s now more conscious of her actions on and off camera.

Nung nagkaanak ako, mas naging conscious ako sa mga ginagawa ko. Ayaw ko na yung anak ko pag nagka-boyfriend, live-in sila or mag-baby sila. Gusto ko maging magandang impluwensya,” she said.

Mas nag-mature, mas nagkaroon ng discipline sa sarili ko. Mas nagkaroon talaga ng direction. Hindi na ako yung dati na uunahin ko yung sarili ko. Mas focus din ako sa trabaho ko,” Katrina said.

She now prefers doing goody roles as opposed to her past kontrabida projects.

She even decided to live separately from Lawrence, as they are not married yet, to set a good example to her daughter.

“Kasal muna bago magsama. After ko manganak doon ko na-realize yung mga mali ko kaya kailangan itama mo na.”

She declined to answer queries about her relationship with Kris, whom she described as a good and responsible father to their nearly two-year-old daughter.

Okay siya sa responsibilities niya as a father. ‘Pag wala ako siya yung andiyan. Matiyaga siya sa bata, actually mas matiyaga siya sa akin. Ang priority namin ay si Katie,” she said.

Meanwhile, Katrina said she is happy to be part of the newest primetime series “Niño,” starring teen actor Miguel Tanfelix.

Directed by Maryo J. delos Reyes, the teleserye tells the story of a boy who will inspire others to remain hopeful amid life’s difficulties.

Katrina said this is her comeback project in the primetime block of GMA-7. She’s thankful that this time, she’s given a protagonist role.

Masaya kasi nabigyan ulit ako ng opportunity na makapagtrabaho ulit at (maipakita) yung ibang side naman, mabait na at hindi na villain. May ibang kaya din (akong gawin). Walang bahid, walang dumi (yung character),” she said.

“Nung pinakita sa akin yung script, yung role, nagulat din ako and sabi ko baka nagkamali, na akin ba talaga ito. Natuwa naman ako kasi para may maipakita ako na bago.”

Katrina clarified she is still open in doing kontrabida roles.

Hindi naman sobrang (magiging mapili). Kung may ibibigay din na ibang project na maganda, why not? At least ito pwede kong ipanood sa anak ko kasi pambata ito. Yung iba puro pagmamaldita ang ginawa ko kaya hindi pwede,” she said. (MNS)
