Bing Loyzaga points out the difference of working with ABS-CBN and GMA-7: "The difference siguro is me in the sense wherein here, my roles are kontrabida. Sa kabila, medyo mabait ako."

After nine years, Bing Loyzaga returns to GMA-7 via the teleserye Kapag Nahati Ang Puso.

Her return to the Kapuso network comes after doing several teleseryes with ABS-CBN and TV5.

According to Bing, she did not feel any different even though she has not worked with the Kapuso network for a long time.

She said, "This is not my first time with GMA, I was with GMA for a long time and I was with ABS for a long time also.

"What's the difference? Siguro the difference is me. Hahaha!

"Kasi the people I've worked with before are still here, are still here and very much welcoming.

"The people I've worked with on the other side, same din."

However, she can remember only one difference in terms of the shows she did in the two networks.

She continued, "The difference siguro is me in the sense wherein here, my roles are kontrabida.


"Sa kabila, medyo mabait ako, medyo lang, konti lang.

"Pero dito, full-blown. Yun lang siguro.

"Pero the people that are working, you see the passion in anyone so I will not say 'This is better.'

"The passion is there, and when you have the passion you know you're working with the right people."

Among the shows Bing did in GMA-7 where she played the villain were: Saang Sulok ng Langit (2005), Kung Mamahalin Mo Lang Ako (2005) Sine Novela: Sinasamba Kita (2007), MariMar (2007), and Sine Novela: Paano Ba Ang Mangarap (2009).

In ABS-CBN, she also did a kontrabida role in Kay Tagal Kang Hinintay (2002).

However, her more recent roles with ABS-CBN were all kind-hearted characters like in My Girl (2008), Agua Bendita (2010), Rubi (2010), and Ikaw Lang Ang Iibigin (2017).

Bing doesn't seem to be affected by network wars and rivalries.

She said about this, "Nasa sa kanila yun if they want to have rivalries or what.


"Pero with me, hey, this is just me so I'll just be me and whether there's rivalry or not, that's your problem, not mine. Hahaha!"

She also doesn't make a big deal of the talent fee she receives with her projects from both networks.

"I wouldn't be wherever if I'm not happy, and it's not really yung TF, e, it's really about the projects.

"If you know that you will improve yourself with the projects, you can give something to the project, the role is challenging, you'll be working with other people, why not, di ba?

"I think it's more of the whole package." (Philippine Entertainment Portal) spoke to Bing during the July 6 grand press conference of Kapag Nahati Ang Puso at the Executive Lounge of GMA Network Center in Quezon City.

BEA'S KONTRABIDA. In Kapag Nahati Ang Puso, formerly titled Karibal Ko Ang Aking Ina, Bing's character Miranda will make life miserable for Bea Binene's character, Claire.


As seen in the trailer, Miranda gives Claire the cold treatment and hurts her physically sometimes.

Bing said about the meanness of her character, "Kailangan, e. Marami kasing pinagdaanan yung character ko kaya paggising niya sa umaga, galit na siya kaagad."

The 48-year-old actress then described her working relationship with Bea on the set.

She recalled, "The funny thing, I was explaining earlier doon sa ibang scenes namin where she needs to cry, we'd embrace.

"I'll help her get to that emotion na she needs to cry.

"Pero pag ready na siya at magte-take na kami, bruha na ako sa kanya. Hindi yun siyempre nakikita sa camera."

Bing praised Bea by saying, "She's such a sport, she's somebody who's open to anything and learning so I enjoy working with her.

"So sorry na lang, alam ko maraming magagalit sa akin with this character pero it comes with the job, di ba?"
