The sizzling trio is ready to add spice to ABS-CBN’s top-rating Primetime Bida with the rest of “Kristine” cast Zanjoe Marudo, Cristine Reyes, Rafael Rosell, JM De Guzman, and Rayver Cruz.
Villania plays Scarlet Saavedra, a strong woman who is very far from the typical Maria Clara. “[As] Atty. Saavedra, I am no weak woman…I live each day as [if it were] my last,” she said.
The actress shared how nervous she was to take on a sensual role but she was relieved by the fact that her screen partner is fellow ASAP XV artist Rafael. “I’ve worked with him in ASAP [for] a dance number. And in that performance, I needed to trust him as we were doing lifts in the prod. It wasn’t an easy lift,” Villania said.
Despite what seems to be a challenging role, the actress is excited because this is a new acting experience altogether. “Basta appropriate sa role, I should be fine doing something a little bit more daring.”
While Villania is slightly nervous, Garcia is excited and prepared for her role. The actress, after all, has had previous experience baring her skin on camera in programs like “Palos” and “Magkano ang Iyong Dangal.”
In the series, Garcia portrays the role of Diana Montero, a woman enshrouded in mystery. One of the few things we know of her is that she hails from a broken family. “Hindi niya nakukuha ang pagmamahal na gusto niya. She’s lonely kaya she’s working hard para mahalin siya ng ibang tao,” Garcia said.
Meanwhile, Moreno’s first day at work was quite a challenge, as she was required to engage in a kissing scene with JM De Guzman who plays Nathaniel. She, however, believes the sexy edge of the show lies in the story.
“Yung pagka-sexy ng Kristine eh hindi lang basta magpakita ng katawan o maghalikan. May magandang kuwento sa likod ng mga maiinit na eksenang ipinapalabas nila,” she explained.
She added De Guzman’s gentleman ways helped her feel comfortable. “Noong first day, hindi kami nakapag-usap pero ramdam ko yung kabaitan niya. ‘Yung isang eksena kasi namin, on-screen parang topless ako. In real life, naka-tube ako. Si JM, hindi tumitingin sa akin, nakayuko lang siya before the take. Titingin lang ‘yun pag-nag-roll na ang camera,” she recounted.
Moreno plays the character of Jasmin, a woman who would do anything for her family and would be willing to give up everything, especially for her siblings.
Apart from these three women, two new characters also join the series—Charlie (Joross Gamboa) and Rowena (Neri Naig) who have pivotal roles in the story.
After a tension-filled first encounter, what will happen once Nathaniel and Jasmin cross paths again? Will Scarlet be an instrument towards Jewel and Bernard’s reunion? Will Marco finally tell Scarlet about his feelings? And what evil plan will Margarita (Irma Adlawan) set in place when Jewel (Cristine), sick with amnesia, returns to Paso de Blas?
Tune in to the romantic and heated episodes of the teleserye that brings life to your nights, “Kristine, Ang Ikalawang Libro,” after “Imortal” on ABS-CBN.
