Kaye has been the resident bad girl of hit afternoon drama “Precious Hearts Romances Presents Alyna” where she plays Shaina Magdayao’s rival and tormentor.
This has led to the rumors that their stormy relationship is for real, Kaye being an ex-girlfriend of John Lloyd Cruz, Shaina’s current beau.
Kaye clarified she is not at odds with Shaina, who has become a friend since they worked together in “Rubi.”
“Kami naman dito sa set ng Alyna ay magkakabarkada din. So ‘yung mga eksenang may sampalan, ‘pag rehearsal tawanan yan. Lumalabas ang pagmamaldita, pag take na.”
Yet Kaye admitted she still feels nervous playing the antagonist as people may hate her for it. So far, she said people are able to separate the real Kaye from Lilet.
“So far wala pa naman akong nababasa na sobrang galit. ‘Yung iba natutuwa dahil something new yung role dahil ‘yun ‘yung hindi ko masyado nagagawa. ‘Yung dati kasi puro iyak, puro pa-sweet,” she explained. Playing the role of Lilet is indeed a feat for Kaye. She must convince Dominic (Jason Abalos), the man she hurt, to love her again.
Another challenge for Kaye is showing her sexy side in “Alyna,” which has featured intimate yet artistically shot scenes before. Recently, she was seen in a two-piece bikini in an entire episode.
Shaina, meanwhile, continues to be compared not just to Kaye but actresses from the rival program. The young star chose to go the high road when asked to react to write-ups saying she is less sexy than her counterparts.
“Ang pagiging sexy ni Alyna eh hindi sa pagpapakita ng katawan. It’s about how she carries herself, yung demeanor nya as a person, mga decision nya in life. That’s what makes her sexy,” she said.
The actress also maintained she is not threatened by comparisons. “I have nothing against anyone. I see it as healthy competition.”
All these issues are coming out because of the success of “Alyna,” which continues to rule the national TV ratings according to global media specialist Kantar Media. With an interesting story and riveting performances from its cast, the show is in a league of its won in the afternoon timeslot.
Viewers are expected to stay tuned to “Alyna” these coming weeks as a huge typhoon is set to hit Rancho Del Carmen. Similarly, a “storm” will threaten the foundation of Alyna and Dominic’s relationship. Saddened by the bond between Alyna and Dominic, Rex (Sid Lucero) falls ill and turns to Alyna for care. Alyna takes care of him in secret, prompting Rex to hope for reconciliation.
Find out how Dominic and Lilet will react to this in the afternoon drama of primetime caliber, “Precious Hearts Romances Presents Alyna,” from Monday to Friday, after “Juanita Banana” on ABS-CBN.
