So what's your character in The Last Woman Standing like?
My character is Magnolia. She's the daughter of sketchy politicians. Bale, they were rich but biglang nakulong yung parents niya so bigla na lang siya naging mahirap. As in nawala lahat sa kanya! That's when Simon (Janno Gibbs) arrived and kinupkop niya si Magnolia. He invited her into his house and doon niya nalamang may iba pa palang kasama si Simon na babae roon!
And all of you girls agreed to live there with him? Lakas ah!
Sweet talker kasi siya eh so lahat ng girls na-fa-fall sa kanya to the point that we're willing to live together under one roof. Ganun kasi siya ka-appealing!
So how exactly did Magnolia meet Simon?
Nagtatago kasi si Magnolia from the paparazzi because the press was covering the scandal. I went inside a car tapos kotse pala ni Simon yun! I just told him to drive so I could getaway and things just developed from there.
So, how are things with you girls inside his house?
We all have different personalities so talagang iisipin mong sasabog yung bahay, ha ha! I'm like the demonyo of the bahay, ha ha! Parang troublemaker. But eventually, they learned to love me despite of the harsh things we say to one another, parang they saw that Magnolia was a nice person din naman.
Do you have any similarities with your character Magnolia that helped you play her?
Actually no, ha ha! Sobrang baliktad kami. As in literal na opposite. Mataray at matapang siya, tapos sobra pang snoberra! Kasi ako in real life sobrang binabati ko lahat ng tao tapos lagi akong naka-smile. Sobrang iba namin, nakakatawa ha ha!
So how did you bring out your mataray side?
Kasi we all have bad days naman. Sometimes I wish na masama akong tao para hindi pagsasamantalahan ng ibang tao yung kindness mo so siguro Magnolia was my way of letting out that person. Di ba sometimes you just want to be a bitch and let out your anger? Luckily, Magnolia lets me do that, ha ha!
Does Magnolia have any special tricks to grab Simon's attention?
Si Magnolia hindi talaga nagpapatalo. Kahit ano'ng kaya gawin nung isang babae, mas kaya kong gawin. Kung may nagsabotahe sa kanya, mas i-sasabotahe ka niya! Araw-araw din siyang nagpapaganda at nagsusuot din siya ng mga revealing the bikini. Talagang palaban siya!
So how do you vie for a guy's attention in real life?
Actually, medyo opposite. I think yung best technique would be to act like you're not that interested so he'll be the one to initiate. I think yun yung best kasi hindi ka magmumukhang clingy or easy-to-get. I think guys like the challenge eh.
Which of the two approaches do you think is better?
Magnolia's is very aggressive, she knows what she wants and if she wants you, she'll get you, but I think mas okay yung sa akin kasi not all guys are into girls that are controlling. Di ba lalo na sa generation natin ngayon mas gusto nung guy na dominant sila? Hindi alam ng guys pero style namin yun that we let you feel like you're alpha male, ha ha!
