According to Glaiza de Castro, if she wants to go on a real vacation this coming Holy Week, a beach it would be. "Yung relax lang, walang tao, tapos, ayun nga, mag-unwind."


Glaiza de Castro is not afraid to be typecast in kontrabida roles. The versatile actress said she's happy portraying any sort of acting role that comes her way.

"Hindi naman sa kumportable, pero masaya ako sa lahat ng ginagawa kong roles. Hindi sa ibig sabihin, e, kumportable, e, relax ka na. Hindi sa ganun, e. Kasi every role that I get, iba-ibang intensity, e, iba-ibang atake. So lahat 'yon, hindi ka puwedeng maging comfortable," she told PEP (Philippine Entertainment Portal) during the recent launch of her manager Manny Valera's RAVE Art Gallery in Quezon City.

Glaiza was first given "api-apihan" roles in several soaps, but is now an effective kontrabida, thanks to antagonist stints in GMA-7's Kung Aagawin Mo ang Lahat sa Akin and Stairway to Heaven. She now plays Tiffany, the rival of Sam/Melody (Regine Velasquez) to stardom in the primetime kantaserye Diva.

The young actress said her role in Diva gives her "ibang klaseng high." "Kasi nandun na yung rush, e. And ngayon, nag-e-enjoy ako kasi nasa rush ako ngayon ng pag-arte ko sa role na ginagawa ko," she said.

For Glaiza, Diva is an enjoyable show to make.

"Sobrang nakakatuwa kasi ano, e, refreshing siya," she said. "Ang dami nating problema sa buhay, di ba? Ang daming drama. So, eto naman, may konting drama. Pero majority talaga yung makapagpasaya kami ng tao."

Ratings do not matter.

"Mapatawa namin sila. Sobrang fulfilling na yun sa amin dahil ang dami na naming nare-receive na comments na nakakatuwa nga talaga, nakakatawa, nakakapagtanggal ng stress. So kami naman, hindi kami sa ratings, e. Alam mo 'yon? More on nagpo-focus kami sa entertainment, yung ganun, kung paano namin talaga mapapasaya yung mga tao," she said.

One of the perks in her role in Diva is working opposite Asia's Songbird Regine Velasquez.

"Alam mo, hindi ko man mapantayan, o siyempre hindi ko naman talaga mahihigitan yung ability ni Ms. Regine sa pagkanta, pero privilege na rin para sa akin, na mahanay ako sa mga ganong klaseng project, mga kantahan. Ang laking kasiyahan na yung sa akin, just to be with them and to sing with them," Glaiza said.
