LJ Reyes on the positive feedback she garnered for her role in Time of My Life: "Nakakataba po talaga ng puso na magustuhan nila ang isang character na pino-portray mo. Especially that my character is an antagonist. It is not easy to like a character who is evil."

"Salamat kung naiparamdam ko sa kanila ang mga nasa puso ni Zaira. Sa pagsasayaw, salamat din po. Wala po talaga along masabi kundi katakut-takot


Kagabi, Nobyembre 20, nagtapos ang kauna-unahang danceserye ng GMA-7—ang Time of My Life.

Isa si LJ Reyes sa mga miyembro ng cast ng nasabing serye.

Sa tinagal ng pag-ere ng programa ay masasabing napansin ng mga manonood ang kanyang pagiging epektibo bilang kontrabida, gayun na rin ang kakayahan niya sa pagsayaw.

Nakausap ng PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) si LJ sa pamamagitan ng telepono kahapon, November 18.

SAD BUT THANKFUL. Bagamat nalulungkot si LJ sa pagtatapos ng ginawang danceserye, masaya naman ito dahil sa magagandang papuri na natatanggap daw niya.

Nilinaw rin ni LJ na hindi naman daw napaaga o naging biglaan ang pagtatapos ng kanilang serye.

Ayon nga kay LJ, "Nakakalungkot nga po, in the sense na napamahal na po ako sa character ni Zaira.

"And also, I’ve already been close to the people on the set, the cast, staff and crew. Hindi naman po siya napaaga.

"It will end at the time it’s supposed to end. Hindi lang po sya puwedeng i-extend kahit na po mataas ang ratings dahil naka-plano na po ang shows ng GMA.

"And the network is committed. Actually, we were extended for a week."

Kung tutuusin, ang Time of My Life rin ang nagsilbing pagbabalik ni LJ sa pag-arte.

Matagal din siyang nawala nang magbuntis at ipanganak niya si Ethan Akio—ang isang taong gulang na anak na lalaki nila ni Paulo Avelino.

Kaya marami raw siyang mami-miss sa show nila.

"Super mami-miss ko yung mga katrabaho ko. This project includes a pretty big cast," malungkot niyang saad.

"Mami-miss ko yung maka-eksena ang ilan sa mga pinaka-magagaling na artista sa industriya, gaya nila Ms. Jean Garcia at Ms. Cherie Gil.

"Iba kasi ang feeling pag sila ang ka-eksena mo. I will also definitely miss those behind the camera.

"The staff and crew na naging kaibigan ko na rin naman. We had our moments behind camera, the laughs and jokes we share every taping day."

POSITIVE FEEDBACK. Hindi rin daw niya akalain na kahit kontrabida ang role niya bilang si Zaira, marami ang naka-appreciate nito.

Ayon nga kay LJ, nao-overwhelm raw siya sa mga naririnig at nababasang comments ng mga tao sa ginawa niya.

"Maraming beses ko na po ’to sinabi sa Twitter, at uulitin ko pa rin po.

"Nakakataba po talaga ng puso na magustuhan nila ang isang character na pino-portray mo.

"Especially that my character is an antagonist. It is not easy to like a character who is evil," natatawa niyang sabi.

"Salamat kung naiparamdam ko sa kanila ang mga nasa puso ni Zaira. Sa pagsasayaw, salamat din po."

Ang tinutukoy ni LJ ay ang mga dance sequence niya sa teleserye na nag-ani rin ng puri para sa kanya.

Pagpapatuloy niya, "Wala po talaga along masabi kundi katakut-takot na pasasalamat. This serves as an inspiration for me to be better at this.

"I am flattered and overwhelmed and blessed.

"Sa lahat-lahat ng artists na pwedeng pagbigyan ng role na ito, ako ang napili nila.

"And that’s also the reason why i really did my best. Thankful po ako kay God siyempre.

"I’d prayed for this and He gave it to me. Thankful din ako sa tiwalang binigay ng network sa ’kin."

WHAT’S NEXT? Sa ngayon, hindi pa raw alam ni LJ kung ano ang follow-up projects niya.

Pero, nag-sign na siya ng guaranteed contract sa GMA-7.

At tiwala naman daw siya sa kanyang management, ang PPL Entertainment, Inc., sa kung anumang projects na ipapagawa sa kanya.

(Ang PPL Entertainment ni Perry Lansigan ang siya ring nagma-manage kina Dingdong Dantes, Jolina Magdangal, Janno Gibbs, Rochelle Pangilinan at marami pang iba.)

Kung kontrabida man daw ulit ang next role niya, okay lang daw sa kanya.

"Wala pa po akong next show, but hopefully magkaroon na ulit. I would definitely love to portray a kontrabida role," hiling ni LJ.

"Mas masarap siya kung multi-dimensional ang character, hindi young basta galit lang sa mundo.

"It will definitely challenge you to express a surge of emotions. Yung tipong para ka lang luka-luka.

"Pero, syempre, I am not closing my doors to roles besides kontrabida."

HANDS-ON MOM. Kahit busy naman daw siya sa kanyang career, sinisiguro niyang nakatutok siya sa pag-aalaga at pagpapalaki sa kanilang anak.

"Ang bilis niya lumaki! I can’t keep up!" natatawa pa niyang sabi. "Pero siyempre, we always make sure and we always make time for him."

Noong mga nakaraang taon, parang naging tradisyon na kay LJ ang pag-alis ng bansa para makasama ang kanyang mommy at ate sa U.S. kapag Pasko at tuwing kaarawan niya.

Pero ngayong taon daw ay maiiba ang plano nila.

"Dito lang ako, hindi ako aalis this Christmas. We’ll be spending Christmas here together as family," patapos niyang banggit.

Nangangahulugang magkakasama ngayong Pasko sina LJ, Paulo, ang kanilang anak, at iba pang kamag-anak.
