Jasmine Curtis Smith says acting like a brat is fun.
In TV5's Filipino adaptation of hit Koreanovela, My Fair Lady, its Primetime Princess is cast as Audrey Tiuseco, the richest “it” girl in the country and heiress of Tiuseco Land.
Coming from a prominent family, Audrey grew up to be a major problem child in the family.
When asked what she likes about portraying the lead character, Jasmine replied, “I think playing the role of Audrey Tiuseco has been fun more than challenging because brat siya, e.
“Alam mo na kung saan 'yong kukunin sa pagkatao.
“Kunwari, kapag pikon ka o wala ka na sa mood.”
Then, she admitted, “Ako, self-aware ako kapag ganun ako in person and in real life.
“So, I know how to use how I am in real life and put it into character.
“The only struggle is kapag kailangan ng mas hi-tech pa ang galit, nagwawala.”
Althought there are times when she loses her temper, Jasmine clarified that she never became a unreasonable brat.
“That's my difference, kasi kapag ako, sobrang galit ako, sobrang tahimik akong tao rather than exploding,” she said.
“I won't lie, mayroon po akong mga attitude na ganun minsan.
“Kapag wala na talaga sa mood, I can relate.
“But I don't think I'm as brat as her.”
Unlike her character Audrey, the young actress said she never took her family for granted.
“I know how to appreciate what my family gives me and what my family worked hard for.
“Compared to her, 'Siya 'yong very, 'wala lang, paki ko, buhay ko 'to, may pera ang pamilya ko, gagawin ko lahat ng gusto ko.'
“Ako, I look at the finer details of life, and I see how better I am compared to others.
“So, I really take time to appreciate that compared to my character.”
The Philippine adaptation of My Fair Lady will begin starting Monday, September 14, at 9:30 pm on TV5.
Joining Jasmine in the cast are Vin Abrenica, Luis Alandy, Joross Gamboa, Yayo Aguila, Chanel Morales, DJ Durano, Jenny Miller, Katrina Legaspi, and Marjorie Barretto, who is returning to acting after a long time.
