MANILA, June 6 (Mabuhay) -– KC Concepcion admitted she initially had hesitations about playing the “kontrabida” in the upcoming television series starring Judy Ann Santos.
In an interview during the special screening of the drama series “Huwag Ka Lang Mawawala,” Concepcion said Santos had to convince her to do the project.
“Nung umpisa, hindi ko talaga alam ‘yung role ko sa serye. And then tinawagan ako ni Ate Judai to say, ‘Babe gawin mo ito.’ Sabi ko, ‘Ate, ano bang role ko diyan?’ Sabi niya, ‘Kontrabida kita.’ Sabi ko, ‘Kaya ko ba iyon?’ Kinaya ko naman. It’s a nice experience kasi si Ms. Judy Ann Santos,” she said.
Santos and Concepcion are known to be close friends in show business.
Concepcion said is honored to share scenes with Santos. In fact, Concepcion shared that she didn’t mind when Santos slapped her so hard while they were doing an intense scene.
“Oo, nakakita ako ng stars. First time ko makakita ng stars ‘yung parang sa cartoons. [Sinampal] niya ako tapos naramdaman ko sa panga ko. Maganda ‘yung feeling kasi si Ms. Judy Ann naman ang gumawa,” she said.
After that scene, Concepcion said it just goes to show that Santos always gives her all every time she is in front of the camera.
“She’s an actress that really gets into the scene na kino-commit niya ang sarili niya sa eksena so mahihiya kang hindi magbigay ng 100%,” she said.
In the new soap, Santos plays a battered wife who will do everything to be free from her husband and to protect her child.
The role of Santos’ husband will be played by Sam Milby, while Concepcion will portray the other woman of Milby’s character. (MNS)
