Kim Domingo feels “kilig” when told about the description given by Super Ma'am lead star Marian Rivera about her.
In an interview with Marian, she mentioned that Kim fits the role of Avenir Segovia, the lost sister of Marian's character named Minerva Henerala.
Kim's character will be trained by the main villainess Greta Segovia (Jackie Lou Blanco) to become a beauty queen.
Marian said in the interview: “Si Kim? My god, pantasya siya, perfect talaga siya para sa character.
“Maganda siya, sexy siya, mabait siya, at saka magaling siyang umarte,” Marian told reporters during the press conference of Super Ma'am.
Kim smiled when she heard these praises from her co-actor.
“E, sobrang ano ko siya, e. Kahit sa mga past interviews ko, sinasabi ko talaga na gusto ko talaga siya, sobra.
“Siyempre, di ba, kapag may iniidolo kang tao, hindi mo maiiwasan na kapag nakasama mo siya, maiiyak ka, kikiligin ka, matutuwa ka.
“Ganun siguro ang nararamdaman ko ngayon.”
The 22-year-old actress recalled how she acted like a true fan when she first met Marian.
“Ang first kasi na pagkikita namin ni ate is yung photoshoot nitong Super Ma'am, naiilang talaga ako.
“Aaminin ko yun, naiilang ako. Hindi ko alam ang ikikilos,” Kim admitted with a smile.
It's a good thing Marian is easy to approach, so it didn't take long before the two actresses got along.
“Kasi ano, e, very sweet kasi siya, mahilig siyang mangyakap talaga kaya nagiging kumportable ako sa kanya.
“Yun ang maganda sa kanya, very sweet siya at laging nakangiti,” Kim added.
Although they have yet to shoot their scenes together, Kim said she would definitely have fight scenes with the new TV superheroine.
“Mayroon po kaming tagisan dito, may fight scenes.
“Nag-training po ako ng aerial yoga and mixed martial arts.
“Wala kasi akong experience sa mga ganito, so medyo nahihirapan ako,” she said.
In the show's teaser trailer, both Marian and Kim were wearing sexy outfits while doing fight scenes.
Will there also be a sexy showdown between the two stars?
“Sa kanya na talaga yun, e. Hall of Famer na si Ate [sa FHM Sexiest], sa kanya na talaga yun. Deserving din naman talaga siya,” Kim conceded.
It will be recalled that Marian has been inducted into the Hall of Fame of FHM Philippines for being the three-time "Sexiest Woman in the Country."
