i got news from @agentchrislee that my “shoot for the moon” audition for the role in a US series went to an Asian American actress. mahirap talaga pag hindi “boto” ang mga anak ko- especially Bimb… the role was for a sassy, sarcastic, sexy bartender (truth, i know- HINDI BAGAY) but i was ready to take a MIXOLOGY crash course. i don’t drink alcohol at all because of my hypertension, anti anxiety, multivitamin, vitamin D and iron supplement, and most importantly the 4 different antihistamines taken as daily maintenance. it was FUN to try though. GOOD NIGHT to all.

“Mahirap talaga pag hindi “boto” ang mga anak ko- especially Bimb…” she wrote in the caption.

She admitted she wasn’t suited to play the role: “The role was for a sassy, sarcastic, sexy bartender (truth, i know- HINDI BAGAY) but i was ready to take a MIXOLOGY crash course.”

Aquino also said she didn’t drink alcohol considering her medical condition: “I don’t drink alcohol at all because of my hypertension, anti anxiety, multivitamin, vitamin D and iron supplement, and most importantly the 4 different antihistamines taken as daily maintenance.”

Nonetheless, she said “It was FUN to try though.”
