Empress Schuck shares similar traits with her character in Rosalka


"Ang pagkakapareho ko sa kanya [her character Rosa], lumalaban kami at hindi kami nagpapaapi dahil alam namin kung ano ’yong totoong kami," says Empress Schuck when asked to enumerate the traits that are similar to her character in Rosalka.


Empress Schuck feels both nervous and excited for the launch of her own teleserye Rosalka this Monday, May 17, on ABS-CBN’s Hapon-tastic block. The 17-year-old actress is worried about the response of viewers to this original TV series. (CLICK HERE to read related article)

"Siyempre, may konting kaba at pressured din dahil hindi naman din ganun kadali. I mean, masaya siya pero parang iniisip mo kung magiging okay ba or deserving ka ba talaga. Ayun medyo pressured. Pero kahit na ganun, proud na proud pa rin ako at saka sobrang happy pa rin ako," said Empress.

Despite her nervousness, Empress is still hoping that Filipino viewers will appreciate her character in Rosalka.

The young actress said she could relate to some of the traits of Rosa, the name of her character in the show.

"Gusto ko po ’yong hindi niya hinahayaan apihin siya ng mga tao," she described. "Hindi siya perpekto, tinutukso siya, inaaway siya. Siguro ’yon ang pagkakapareho ko sa kanya, na lumalaban kami at hindi kami nagpapaapi dahil alam namin kung ano ’yong totoong kami."

Rosalka revolves around a young girl named Rosa. "Sa kasamaang palad, hindi siya pinanganak ng kagandahan kasi pangit siya at kuba siya. ’Tapos lagi siyang tinutukso ng mga tao, lagi siyang inaapi," said Empress of her character.

She continued, "Pero kahit ganun, kinakaya niya ang lahat ng panunukso, lahat ng pang-aapi. Lumalaban siya at hindi niya hinahayaang apihin siya ng mga tao kasi alam niya na kahit ganun ang hitsura niya, malayo ang mararating niya at mataas talaga ’yong pangarap niya."

In this TV series, Empress will have Matt Evans and Felix Roco as her leading men. Also joining them are Mickey Ferriols, Dominic Ochoa, Bernard Palanca, Maricar de Mesa, Kier Legaspi, Niki Bacolod, Isabel Abreira, and Pretty Trisha. Veteran actress Mila del Sol also plays a special role in Rosalka, which was written by Denise O’Hara and directed by Mervyn Brondial and Jeffrey Jeturian.
