2-in-1 challenge for Kris Bernal
Kris Bernal steps out of her comfort zone as she portrays a dual role in the remake of the teleserye, “Impostora,” which will be shown on GMA 7’s afternoon block. It’s quite a feat to play an evil character in one scene, then shift to a good role in the next frame. That’s as extreme as it gets. But Kris makes the “Kris-crossing” quite well.
Here’s my chat with Kris:
Which celebrity would you want to be an impostor of? I want to be like Beyoncé. She has a successful career and marriage. I like the way she carries herself and how she performs onstage.
What’s your message to your former “love team” partner, Aljur Abrenica and his girlfriend, Kylie Padilla? Congratulations on their newly born angel. May they find forever in each other’s arms.
What has fame taught you? Fame taught me to stay grounded. I learned about the importance of humility. Fame is temporary, so I’ve also learned to be entrepreneurial.
What was the worst intrigue about you, and how did you handle it? The worst one was about my eating habits and physique. They say I’m too skinny and insinuate that I have an eating disorder. Bashers are bashers, so I just let them be. As long as I feel comfortable with my body and I stay healthy, it’s a non-issue for me.
How different is the remake of your show from its original version? The original series had two actors playing the hero and the villain. I portray both.
What do you find hard to understand about love? It’s hard to understand love when you are giving 100 percent of yourself for the relationship to succeed, yet the other party seems to take the effort for granted.
What’s the naughtiest thing that you’ve done? When I acted like a spoiled brat. Even if it was my fault, I refused to make up with a guy friend, even after he knelt down to patch things up.
Is a baby on the way for Ellen?
I refuse to believe rumors that Ellen Adarna is pregnant. Being the party girl and free spirit that she is, Ellen isn’t the type who can be pinned down. But then again, when Cupid strikes, the “stork” can’t be too far behind.
Chinggoy takes his final bow
My Cinema Evaluation Board (CEB) family and I will miss our comember, seasoned thespian Chinggoy Alonso. He was always jolly and pleasant. I remember ribbing him about his “semi-intimate scene” with my good friend, Yayo Aguila, in “Etiquette for Mistresses”—and we had a good laugh about it.
Too bad that he already got his “call slip” from heaven. Bravo for your awesome body of work. Take a bow, Chinggoy!
