Kylie Padilla on dad Robin Padilla: "Nung dumating ang Encantadia, mas nauna siyang nagwala sa akin."



Kylie Padilla initially wanted to play the role of Pirena in Encantadia 2016.

However, the role went to Glaiza de Castro and Kylie was tapped to bring life to Amihan, the keeper of the air gem.

"Siya ang magiging Reyna ng Lireo," said Kylie about her Sang'gre character in the requel (remake + sequel).

Their sisters will be played by Sanya Lopez (as Danaya) and Gabbi Garcia (as Alena).

Does she feel pressured to take on the role previously portrayed by Iza Calzado?

"Actually, later ko na lang napansin na si Ate Iza pala ang Amihan. Nakasama ko siya sa Joaquin Bordado, wala akong idea na may Encantadia.

"Naging friends kami dun tapos biglang ganito ang nangyari. Naging Amihan na ako."

How does she feel about those bashing her for being chosen as Amihan?

"Tinanggap ko ang role na Amihan ever since sinabi sa akin na maging Amihan ako. Hinanda ko na ang sarili ko sa mga sasabihin ng mga tao.

"Ngayon wala na akong masyadong pakialam. Personally. I don't really care sa haters."

How different will be the 2016 version compared to the 2005 telefantasya?

"I feel like the stories are richer this time," said the GMA-7 actress.


ROBIN PADILLA'S REACTION. In a previous interview, Robin Padilla said that he raised his daughter Kylie in preparation for roles such as these.

The 23-year-old actress then revealed, "Actually, masaya ako kay Papa kasi totoo ang sinabi niya. Kaya siya pumayag na maging artista kami, ako, kasi gusto namin action star.

"Medyo nalungkot siya na how many years, puro drama ang binibigay sa akin.

"[Sinasabi niya], Anak naman, e, yung pinaghandaan natin, hindi naman nagagamit."

She recalled with a smile, "Nung dumating ang Encantadia, mas nauna siyang nagwala sa akin.

"Sabi niya, 'Anak, 'yan na 'yan! Magagamit na natin lahat! Lahat ng paghihirap mo at sakit sa katawan, magagamit mo na lahat.'

"Tama naman siya."

What is her reaction to his request that GMA-7 should do a separate trailer just for her?

"Oo nga, e, sabi ko sa kanya, 'Pa, huwag na, nakakahiya.'"
