I had so much fun doing my latest teleserye, Adarna. Too bad I only brought my camera on my last taping day. The final episode aired last Friday so it’s now safe to post these photos! I am looking forward to my next role on television!

Here I am getting my makeup done by Poka!

I like days when we shoot without needing an airconditioned tent. This location is the house of Migo, Geoff Eigenmann’s character. In real life, it’s the house of old-school hunk Jestoni Alarcon.

Look at all his movie posters!!

I’ve got fake blisters all over me because she cast a spell on me as punishment!

Kwentuhan in between takes with our acting coach, Yanny Yuzon.

Ben Alves – we’re in the same show but I’ve never had a scene with him. Very nice guy!

Now we cut to the night scenes, my final scenes. Hello from me, the beckies, and Yanny!

Confident mag-selfie!

Hi, Geoff! I swear, this is an accidental shot – he wasn’t posing. This looks like a campaign for some emo brand though, right? Haha

DSC09965

Yup, my character Robin’s pretty cray

This is the 2nd consecutive time I played Geoff’s crazy girlfriend. He’s been really great to work with.

I accidentally shot myself in the scene. I gulped down way too much maple syrup (fake blood) by accident!! It was very disgusting.

Yay!

It was already around 5AM but I had to stay on as the last actor on set because I had one more scene left. While the crew was setting up, I changed into my prison outfit and let the beckies enjoy. Haha!

I thought I was going to die in the show but I guess they wanted my character to learn. No more being a brat and getting my way while I’m in prison.

And then I had to spend another half hour getting my prosthetics removed. It was great though. I got home at almost 8AM but it was no problem because I wanted to hang out with them as much as I could. Adarna behind-the-scenes was a very relaxed environment. I don’t think we ever had a “for airing” panic. FOR AIRING means taping a scene because it had to be aired ON THAT SAME DAY! I know it sounds crazy but a lot of shows do that because of time and budget constraints. Adarna was fun. The cast was mostly my age so even the cast party was a blast.

We met up last Thursday to celebrate a successful run and to do a little rockeoke! Kylie couldn’t stay long so I’m glad we got to take this picture! She just had her hair cut and colored after the show ended! Love it! With us is my fellow kontrabida, Michelle Madrigal.

Michelle briefed me that direk Ricky loves to sing at cast parties! We sang Bakit Ngayon Ka Lang together haha

Ryza Cenon played Kylie Padilla’s best friend. Here she is with Ben Alves and our executive producer Ms. Winnie!

With my Beyonce buddy Dino!! He’s a fabulous makeup artist! For the whole run of the show, he had Beyonce’s new album playing on loop every time he did our makeup. THANK GOD FOR BEYONCE. I would have died if he played some Zedd stuff instead. Hahaha.

    The blisters look real!

    I think I get why your haters (from your previous show) said things like you looked like a pokpok or something like that. Maliban sa hindi nila maipaghiwalay ang telebisyon at totoong buhay, sa tingin ko it’s your makeup. I really think you’re very pretty lalo na kung walang makeup at para saken hindi nagawa ng makeup artist mo ang trabaho nya, and that is to enhance your beauty pa diba? Do you watch your shows ba? Do you see your fez sa tv? Kasi I think you can be prettier on tv pa.

    Also, I kinda see you as the Zooey Deschanel of Pinas. And I hope you’d get to do shows or movies like the ones she did.

      Wow thanks for being honest. Well, I agree, I find my makeup too thick but they always say it’s “for TV” ugh. And to answer your question, I don’t really get to watch myself on TV! I think the first time I saw an episode was at the cast party!

          Nope! Hard-earned experimenting. I would rather keep specifics to myself, hope you understand!! My tip is to research and find your own style :)
