Empress will soon play a hunchback named Rosalka

Empress will take on the role of a hunchback named Rosalka in the original TV series of the same name. It will soon air on ABS-CBN in replacement of the afternoon series Magkano ang Iyong Dangal?

Empress (who has reportedly dropped her last name Schuck) is ready to take on a major role in an original show conceptualized by ABS-CBN. At her solo press conference held last week, Empress expressed her happiness and excitement now that she is the lead character of her launching show titled Rosalka.

The 17-year old actress says that playing the role of a hunchback is a memorable experience for her. "Yung mga experience ko po sa taping naman medyo mainit lang. ’Yung prosthetics kasi nakababad po talaga siya at wala po talagang tanggalan. ’Yung kuba po medyo mainit din po sa likod, pinapawisan pero kahit anong hirap naman po okay naman po yun kasi para din naman yun sa ikagaganda ng show."

After 10 years of waiting in the business, the Star Magic Batch 13 member will finally have the opportunity to show viewers her talent and passion in acting. With her first big break in the television scene, new experiences will definitely be waiting for her. "Dati po hindi po talaga pumapayag si Mama na lagyan ako ng prosthetics kasi po hindi daw maganda sa skin ng bata, kasi bata pa po ako nun. So ngayon, big break ko naman po so okay lang naman po."

Empress, who claims that she has not had a boyfriend in the past, will be working with two good-looking actors in the industry: Matt Evans and Felix Roco. The young actress has worked with both of them previously in different ABS-CBN shows.

"Sa MMK [Maalaala Mo Kaya] po kami nagkapartner [ni Matt Evans]. Okay naman po kasi medyo parehas kami ng ugali, medyo kalog kaming dalawa. Kaya bagay din po samin yung role na mag best friends kami dun. Kaya okay naman kumportable kami sa isa’t isa. Si Felix naman mo nakatrabaho ko na rin po siya sa Super Inggo. Medyo love interest dun sa Super Inggo dati. Kaya ngayon, ngayon na lang po kami ulit nagkasama. Medyo parang may getting-to know each other [stage] pa. Pero okay naman po, okay naman po sila katrabaho," said Empress about her leading men.

When asked to name the co-star that she was more comfortable with, Empress answered, "Sa mas kumportable po sa ngayon po si Matt kasi mas marami po kaming pinagsamahan."


Empress has already proven her acting skill when she received the Best Child Actress award in 2003 for the movie 9 Mornings.

During the press conference, she was asked regarding her secret in acting and she simply said, "Naku, hindi naman po sa madali akong umiyak. May mga times din po na nahihirapan din kasi siguro po minsan pagod na po or siguro ganun or may iniisip or walang mahugutan. Pero sa mga nakita niyo naman po, lahat po yun pinaghirapan ko po. Parang lahat ’yon inaral ko po, bawat eksena kaya siguro naging maganda po yung kinalabasan. Saka lahat ng emotions ko po nilalagay ko po sa bawat eksena na ginagawa namin kaya po siguro maganda yung lumalabas."

Rosalka will air soon on ABS-CBN’s afternoon block, replacing Magkano ang Iyong Dangal?
