Bianca King Feels “very blessed” Because “work has been non-stop”

“Very, very blessed,” a statement which is perfectly fits Bianca King who since last year had been busy with her work.

The Kapuso actress mentioned and enumerates her continuous projects last May 19, at the event launch of Gatorade Low Carb at the amphitheater of Bonifacio High Street Central

Bianca said, “Since Captain Barbell (March 2011), my work had been non-stop, and soap operas pa.

“‘Tapos from Captain Barbell, I was pulled out to be the lead in Sinner or Saint (June 2011).

“And then a month after Sinner or Saint, which ended in October, I started taping for Legacy for its pilot week.

“And then, ah, I was taping for that…nag-overlap ang taping. I was taping for that in January, and January rin we started Broken Vow.

“Broken Vow is until mid-June, and then July ang Luna Blanca.”

The lady’s next soap is her biggest break to date.

With too much excitement, she tells the media that, “I’m Luna. I play the character of Luna in Luna Blanca.

“It’s my first lead on primetime. And it’s my first title role also.

“First time na nangyari sa akin na yung pangalan ng character ko, yun yung pangalan ng show…”

When asked to describe her character, she answered “headstrong” because “hindi naging hadlang yung dark skin niya…”

The TV series started airing last night, May 21, 2012, will showcase three generations of actresses namely Jillian Ward and Mona Louise Rey who will play the young characters; Bea Binene and Barbie Forteza will do the tween phase; and Heart Evangelista and Bianca King will portray the grown-up versions.

Bianca added, “For our generation, there’s no script yet, but the character of Luna is very bubbly, free-spirited, ah, child-like, and confident, even if hindi siya yung favorite ng mother nila.

“Siya yung tagapagtanggol ng weakling na sister, si Blanca.

“Blanca is the white one, the one na mas mahal niya yung parents, pero si Luna yung gumagawa parati ng paraan para matulungan yung family…”

THE SMALL PRICE OF HER ROLE. Yes, she’s going to have her skin blackened for the project.

The preparations might be harmful for her skin, but she has no doubts about playing a dark-skinned lady in the series.

“Starting na nga,” she cuts in, referring to the tiny freckles—a common problem among mestizas.

But vanity is the farthest thing from her mind.

“Ano naman yun, it’s a small price to pay for a role that’s so big.

“It really doesn’t matter when you have…because there’s bigger responsibility on your shoulder. It’s a small thing. They don’t really matter. What matters is that I deliver.”

DREAM ROLE. After playing roles that are “out-of-type cast,” Bianca says, “I’m game very game” to doing anything.

The 27-year-old star elaborates, “Actually, if you analyze the type of bida roles that I got here in Broken Vow and Sinner or Saint, hindi siya yung tipong bida role na madaling tanggapin kasi very deglamorized siya.

“And sa Sinner or Saint, I played a no read-no write babaeng hampaslupa na lumaki sa slums so I didn’t have my make-up on it, didn’t even brush my hair ‘tapos yung pananalita’t kilos ko, medyo may pagka-kanto girl.

“And plus I also had a child there. I got pregnant out of wedlock, so you know it’s not very wholesome…

“But for me, I’ve always considered myself edgy.

After playing Noemi Manansala, she’s now Melissa Santiago on GMA-7’s dramarama sa hapon.

Bianca resumes, “And then Broken Vow naman, a rape victim who becomes a battered wife so… and then I have a seven-year-old child here, and I play somebody much, much older than me. I play 49-year-old woman.

“So yun, it’s not ano, e… These are roles that you really have to be committed to, that you really have to be serious in your craft.”

Does she have any dream role?

Her reply: “I really want to do a female heroine that’s not a superhero. So something like Alias, something like Nikita, something like Charlie’s Angels, like that… So parang a female spy or a female secret agent.”

She’s also open to doing a romantic comedy.

Her mood changed when her rumored boyfriend was mentioned, Dennis Trillo.

What’s exactly their status?

She smiles and giggles for about a minute, and say, “We’re good…

The story revolves in two modern couples (Jake and Carla, Dennis and Lovi) who have different lifestyles. Jake and Carla play the role of the rich couple, Bullet and Jasmine. Bullet is said-to-be a co-owner of a bar and Jasmine is a housewife. However, Dennis and Lovi are the working-class couple, Aaron and Cielo. Aaron is medical-school graduate who fails in business ventures thereby gets a loan from Bullet to finance his auto-repair shop. Cielo is a medical representative who loves luxury items to complement her looks. The four characters become close friends yet their friendship turn sour because of their marital infidelity.

The stars admit they have grown more as actors and have conquered their fear through the mature role they portray in the film. Like the case of Carla Abellana, this has been her first time to be daring in a movie or a show and she got through it with the help of the entire cast and crew.

It is also noticeable how the lead stars fit the characters that they portray.

Basketball Player James Yap is in No Hurry To Find a New Love

Last August 20, 2011, at the Imperial Palace was the 73rd Birthday celebration of Mother Lily Monteverde.

The Regal Film matriarch said she considers the presence of James Yap as one of the things which made her 73rd birthday complete. She told reporters that she asked for only one gift from her son Dondon Monteverde: “I told Dondon, for my birthday gift, dalhin mo si James sa birthday party ko.” Dondon serves as the manager of the basketball player. Mother Lily really Love James Yap and James Yap feels overwhelm and thankful because of it.

Last June, Kris Aquino told ABS-CBN that she refused to talk to James because of what she experienced at the witness stand duringone of the court hearings related to her petition to annul their five-year marriage. But James pointed out: “Bakit siya magtatampo? Hindi nga kami nag-uusap. Walang tampuhan. Magkaibigan kami pero busy siya, busy ako.” Since James and Kris have been living apart, James said his four-year-old son, Bimby, has been asking him tough questions. The basketball player said: “Si James (Bimby) kasi lumalaki na so kumbaga nakakaintindi na siya. So medyo ingat lang… minsan nagtatanong siya, ang hirap sagutin pero kailangan talaga.” And according to James, he visits Bimby when his schedule allows it.

James Yap clammed up when asked if he was traumatized by his unsuccessful marriage. “Kung na-trauma? Hirap, eh, kasi minahal ko naman. Gano’n lang talaga ang buhay,” he said. But when asked if he’s dating, he replied, “Ba’t gusto n’yo akong mag-date kaagad?” Then he said in jest, “Oo meron….anak ko.” Turning serious, he said that as of now, “wala pa.”

James seems to pretend surprise when asked about his feedback to Gab Valenciano’s statement that he’s dating Isabel Oli, in an interview, “Ha? Talaga? ‘Di ko alam. Mabait naman si Isabel, eh. Kaibigan ko ‘yon,” he said. “Suwerte si Gab kasi mabait si Isabel. Kaibigan ko ‘yon. Sobrang bait na babae,” he added. With the matter between him and Isabel, Yap did not distance himself from the actress. “Hindi naman kasi alam naman namin na kaibigan ko siya. Wala akong masasabi kay Isabel kundi mabait na babae.”

As for another woman being linked to him, Yap once again stressed that he and singer Marie Digby are just friends. “Lumalabas kami as a group. Kaibigan ko si Marie.” James is not surprised with the rumor because he said he’s single. James declined to make a reaction on Digby’s guesting on Kris Aquino’s morning show Kris TV. “Hindi ko napanood ‘yon kasi wala ako dito, eh.”

With the unsuccessful crack at marriage, the basket ballplayer learned a lesson about relationships: “Kailangan talaga magkasundo and kung meron akong magiging asawa siyempre kailangan talaga team kayo. Kumbaga, kung ano ‘yung desisyon kailangang ipaalam sa ano. ‘Yon na ‘yon. Natuto na ‘ko.”

Aside from James Yap, who came with his manager Dondon Monteverde, celebrities who took time to drop by to greet the Regal producer were senators Bong Revilla, Antonio Trillanes, Dick Gordon, also Paulo Avelino, Boots Anson Roa, Ricky Davao, Toni Gonzaga, Paul Soriano, Dennis Trillo, Martin Escudero, Audie Gemora, Gabby Conception and Baron Gieisler. Other stars present to greet Mother Lily are the lead stars of My Neighbor’s Wife, namely Lovi Poe, Dennis Trillo, and Jake Cuenca. Jillian Ward, Mart Escudero, Lan Batherson, and Ervic Vijandre were among the other guests. Ruffa Gutierrez also arrived at the party with her mother Annabelle Rama. When Nora Aunor arrived with German Moreno, Mother Lily personally met the superstar at the entrance of the mezzanine floor where the party was being held.

At lagi naman akong nandito for advise and I’ll always be your friend,” Patrick stated.

Jen and Patrick prepares for the new chapter of their son’s life, as Alex Jazz will start schooling next month.

Papasok na…mag-e-enroll na siya this coming school year. Excited kaming lahat kasi kaklase niya si Kendra, yung anak ni Cheska (Garcia, Patrick’s sister),” Jen declared.

It shows that they set aside everything they had in the past for the sake of their son.

Patrick said, “Usually naman pag tumatawag ako kay Jen, tungkol naman kay Jazz palagi.”

Basta ang pinag-uusapan lang namin about AJ. Future ni AJ, school ni AJ…lahat puro si AJ,” Jennylyn added.

Jennylyn Mercado plays a mistress in Gumapang Ka Sa Lusak

jenTuwang-tuwa si Jennylyn Mercado dahil hindi siya nabakante ng trabaho sa GMA-7. Pagtatapos ng early primetime soap niyang Ikaw Sana with Mark Herras ngayong araw, February 5, ay may kasunod na agad siyang afternoon soap na Gumapang Ka Sa Lusak, na magsisimula na sa Lunes, February 8, sa Dramarama sa Hapon ng GMA-7.

“Masaya dahil tuluy-tuloy ang blessings na hindi ako nawawalan ng trabaho. Nagpapasalamat ako sa lahat ng mga sumusuporta at siyempre sa GMA na nagbibigay sa akin ng projects. Hanggang ngayon, hindi pa rin nila ako pinapabayaan,” pahayag ni Jennylyn nang ma-interview siya ng PEP (Philippine Entertainment Portal) sa grand presscon ng Gumapang Ka Sa Lusak kahapon, February 4, sa Gateway Suites.

Nape-pressure ba siya na ang original na gumanap sa movie version ng role niya ay si Dina Bonnevie, tapos first time niya rin maididirek ni Maryo J. de los Reyes?

“Sobra!” sambit niya. “Kaya kailangan kong pag-aralan yung character. Kailangan kong panoorin yung original. Tapos, first time kong makakasama si Direk Maryo. Talagang yung pressure talagang mabigat.”

Ginagampanan ni Jennylyn dito sa Gumapang Ka Sa Lusak ang role ni Rachel Mantarin, isang aspiring actress na engaged na sa kanyang boyfriend na si Levi (Dennis Trillo). Magsisimulang magulo ang kanilang pagsasama dahil magiging kabit si Rachel ni Mayor Edmundo Guatlo (Al Tantay).

First time daw gampanan ni Jennylyn ang role ng isang kabit ng older guy at mayor pa.

“Wala pa akong nagawang ganito before. Kaya dapat abangan niyo.”

Hindi ba siya kinakabahan sa mga magiging reaksyon ng mga tao sa pagganap niya ng isang kabit?

“Siyempre naman, hindi naman ako pababayaan ni Direk Maryo, lalo na at sa TV ito ipapalabas. So, siguro talagang may limits naman. At saka trabaho ko ito, e. Kumbaga, ‘eto yung kuwento niya at gagampanan ko lang yung role na ibinigay sa akin,” sabi ni Jennylyn.

“I think meron yatang nagte-text ulit sa kanya ngayon. So, I don’t know kung pinagbibintangan niya ako or something. Sana i-make sure lang natin na ako talaga yun. Ngayon, idine-deny ko kasi hindi naman po talaga. Pero yung before ako, totoo, ako talaga yun. Pero hindi ko nga siya directly tinext. Ang tinext ko si Rufa Mae,” paliwanag niya.

So, si Rufa Mae ang nagpadala kay Heart ng hate message niya?
