Kylie Padilla and Andrea Torres enjoy recalling in an exclusive interview with PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) the pleasure of working together as a pair in the upcoming WeTV series BetCin.

Andrea tells the PEP.ph editorial team this Monday, October 11, “We feel good about it, e.

“The whole time na ginagawa namin siya, talagang ang ganda lang ng energy sa set, parang lahat may mga ibinabatong ideas din.

“Ang ganda na ng script noong unang nakuha namin, mas na-enhance pa siya.”

In the series directed by Shugo Praico, Kylie and Andrea portray the social media couple Beth and Cindy, respectively.

Beth and Cindy are on the verge of breakup just as they become part of a reality show searching for #RelationshipGoals with P10 million at stake.

Eyeing the prize, Beth and Cindy have to pretend to their followers—the UMAMIs—they still are a happy couple.

Andrea relates how she and Kylie became too involved with their characters, and declares proudly: “Very memorable ang aking first kiss with a girl, very memorable!"

She explains, “Siguro kasi, feeling ko, totoo siya. Hindi siya iyong nag-usap na 'Ito gagawin natin sa part na ito, ito iyong gagawin ko.'

"Walang ganun. Sinabi lang iyong eksena ‘tapos bahala na kung ano mangyayari.

“Sabi ko nga kay Kylie, ang description ko doon sa eksenang iyon, para akong nanaginip.

"Noong ginawa iyong eksena, parang pumasok na ako sa Cindy character na after, ‘Uy, tapos na?’”

Kylie also remembers being so immersed in the scene and just letting go, “Hindi na namin alam iyong nangyayari.

"Basta sumabay na lang kami sa kailangan. Kaya noong napanood ko iyong trailer, ‘Oh, ganun pala iyong kiss namin!’”

NO sweat doing INTIMATE SCENES

Both Andrea and Kylie did not think twice when they were offered to do BetCin, even when it was their first time to portray same-sex couple.

Andrea particularly jumped at the chance to show her capability to portray a gay character.

She had a reason, having once played a transman in an episode of Magpakailanman, but found the experience "bitin."

The Legal Wives actress recalls, “Ako po, tinawagan ako ng manager na may offer nga raw po na ganitong material and na-excite ako.

"Kasi dati gumawa na ako ng transman na role, nabitin ako sa kanya.

“Sa Magpakailanman po ito, e, pero di po ako gumanap the whole story. Kasi noong lalaki na siya, si Mike Tan na.

"So, parang nabitin ako, gusto ko pang gumawa ng ganitong klaseng role sana.”

“Nag-yes ako agad kahit ang ibinigay lang sa akin, summary lang per episode.

"Kasi sabi ko, parang gusto ko kasi nanggugulat ako sa mga ginagawa ko and para ma-challenge ko rin iyong sarili ko.”

In fact, Andrea was willing to go all the way for the project.

“So, noong tinanong nila ako kung ano iyong limitations ko pagdating sa mga intimate scenes, sabi ko, ‘Bahala ka na, Direk!

"Kung ano iyong ikagaganda ng series, ibibigay ko.’”

Talking about her role, Kylie says her character Beth is perfect for her comeback after giving birth to her second son, Axl, in 2019.

She tells PEP.ph, “Ako naman, character based akong pumili ng project.

"Noong dumating sa akin ito, wala akong iniisip na gusto kong mag-GL [Girls Love] series, though gusto ko talaga, it’s one of my dream roles.

“But iyong nakapagpa-oo talaga is iyong character ni Beth, and siya iyong pinili ko.

"Kasi noong nabasa ko siya, naintindihan ko siya, e. Mabibigyang justice ko ito.”

Like Andrea, Kylie has no problem doing the erotic scenes in the series.

“Hindi ko na inisip kung may mga kissing scene o mga bed scene. Nagkatrabaho naman na kami ni Ada [Andrea] so magagawa namin.

"Kinakabahan lang ako kasi gusto ko, mukha siyang totoo baka matakot lang si Ada sa akin! Hahaha!

“Pero komportable naman kami sa isa’t isa and iyon lang naman importante sa akin, mabigyang hustisya iyong characters.”

The first and last time Kylie and Andrea worked together was ten years ago, in the afternoon series Blusang Itim in 2011, where Kylie was the bida and Andrea played kontrabida.

NATURAL CHEMISTRY

Did Andrea and Kylie have to rehearse for their intimate scenes?

Andrea exclaims, “Hindi! Hindi kami nag-rehearse!”

Kylie quips, “Marami na akong rehearsal. Charot!”

After making everyone—even herself—burst into laughter, Kylie says, “Joke lang, ito naman!”

She then narrates, “Hindi, parang nagkaroon kami ng workshop ni Ada about our characters, saan nanggagaling si Cindy, saan nanggagaling si Beth.

“On the first day pa lang, gets na namin, e. Nakita ni Direk, 'Ang ganda, gets niyo na agad.'"

Andrea adds, “Nakakakilig kasi noong unang script reading namin, naka-set siya ng 2 to 4 p.m.

"Pero parang ginawa namin siya ng 2 to 2:30 p.m. lang, kasi sabi ni Direk, ‘Okay na iyan, mag-shoot na tayo.’

“So, doon pa lang, ang sarap na ng pakiramdam naming dalawa kasi meron na, hindi na tayo kailangang masyadong mag-effort sa chemistry.

“Parang masyado nga po kaming na-carried away. Haha! Parang na-excite kaming gulatin sila Direk.”

ANXIETY OVER NOTHING

Even then, Kylie admits feeling “kaunting kaba” because they are playing something new to their audience and followers.

The Encantadia actress explains, “Siyempre, magpi-present kami ng kakaibang series na GL series siya.

"So may kaunting kaba. Baka kasi hindi siya tanggapin or something.

"Hindi pa sanay iyong ibang tao na makita kami ni Andrea na maghalikan, ganun!

“So, parang may kaunting kaba, pero may confidence naman ako kasi iyong gauge ko diyan is iyong sarili ko, e. I know my taste, e, and I know what I like.

"So, if I like the show that I am doing, I am pretty sure na kakagat din yung mga tao, so I was excited.”

But based on the positive comments on their social media posts about BetCin, there is really no need for Kylie and Andrea to fret about how their audience will react to their roles.

As Kylie soon has found out, “Tama nga ako, excited din iyong mga tao so na-validate iyong feelings ko.”

BetCin is set to premiere this Friday, October 15, on the streaming apps WeTV and iFlix. It will run for eight episodes.

BetCin is produced by Rein Entertainment, the same producer of the award-winning iWant TFC series Bagman, headlined by Arjo Atayde.
