Kapuso actress Lovi Poe has been a staple in horror films and drama shows, the latest being the upcoming Telebabad series Akin Pa Rin Ang Bukas. She also headlines the GMA News TV original series Titser, and is one of the hosts in Sunday All Stars. Even with the many projects that come her way, the Primera Aktresa is very much open in trying other genres. We had the chance to chat with Lovi on the set of Akin Pa Rin Ang Bukas last August 5, where she candidly talked about Rocco Nacino, staying in shape, and wanting to star in a rom-com.
"'Yung mga scenes namin together, they're very nice naman. Ang ganda ng role ni Rocco, makikita mo 'yung two kinds of Rocco na magkaiba ang personalities, the real one and the not so real one," pabirong kuwento niya.
Dagdag pa niya, "He's still the same, very makulit and fun to be with always. And very competitive!"
Kitang kita ang closeness ng dalawa even when the camera is not rolling, with Rocco interrupting our interview once in a while, making faces and giving side comments to Lovi's answers. In the middle of our interview, inabutan niya ng cake ang kanyang leading lady, na agad namang nitong binuksan, making us wonder how Lovi maintains her slender figure.
"I try to work out once in a while. But I still eat what I want, always," she shares.
When asked about what else she wants to try in showbiz, this is what Lovi had to say. "Comedy, I want to do a romantic-comedy, and test myself. Siguro 'yung comedy na nagawa ko was Temptation Island. Gusto ko naman, romantic-comedy, if given the chance."
As for her leading man, Lovi had only one guy in mind. "Si Rocco (laughs). It's so natural for us to laugh all the time so why not make use of it." She also mentioned that she would want to work with Mike 'Pekto' Nacua and Gladys Guevarra, ang mga nakasama niya sa Show Me Da Manny.
Watch out for the Primera Aktresa Lovi Poe on Akin Pa Rin Ang Bukas, coming this August on GMA Telebabad. -- Text by Michelle Caligan, Photo by Bochic Estrada, GMANetwork.com
