Lovi Poe on the kind of roles she wants to play: "Siguro something edgy, something disturbing. I want to play parang... someone who’s like, crazy, addict."


Isang panibagong karakter ang bibigyang-buhay ni Lovi Poe sa pinakabagong afternoon drama ng GMA-7, ang Yesterday’s Bride.

Ito ay magsisimulang umere sa October 22. Makakasama ni Lovi dito sina Rocco Nacino, Luis Alandy, at Karel Marquez.

Nang makapanayam ng PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) si Lovi noong Huwebes, October 11, sa 17th Floor ng GMA Network Center, ikinuwento ng aktres na first taping day rin daw nila noong araw na iyon.

Kumportable na raw si Lovi na makatrabaho si Rocco dahil nagkapareha na sila noon sa Love Bug Presents Hearts Don’t Lie noong 2010.

Ani Lovi, “Yun nga yung maganda kasi matagal na kaming magkaibigan ni Rocco. So kumportable na kami sa isa’t isa.

“Yung medyo ano lang na part, magkaibigan na nga kami, so may times na tawa lang kami nang tawa. E, drama pa naman.”



NICE-GIRL ROLE. Pag-amin ni Lovi, nahirapan siyang gampanan ang karakter ni Andrea sa Yesterday’s Bride dahil masyado raw itong mabait.

Sabi niya, “Kasi I got used to ano, e, mga roles na marunong lumaban.

"And I’m not used to, like, love stories talaga. Yung mga scenes na in love kayo sa isa’t isa.

“Mahiyain ako sa mga ganun, e. As in tatawa lang ako the whole time.

"So nahihirapan talaga ‘ko. I’m trying to ano…

“Kasi usually ang mga scenes ko, mag-isa lang ako, it’s about girl power.

"This time kasi, she’s in love. So I had to listen to love songs kanina.

"Ino-open ko na yung gate. I don’t wanna open that gate but I have to.”

Ayon kay Lovi, ayaw niya sanang buksan ang “gate” ng kanyang mga nakatagong emosyon ngunit kailangan niyang gawin ito dahil sa role.

Paglalahad pa niya, hindi na siya iyakin ngayon ngunit para sa kanyang bagong karakter ay kinailangan niyang humugot ng emosyon mula sa kanyang mga dating karanasan.

“I rarely cry... well, before [I did].

"But then, yun nga, that’s why I said I have to open the gate again. I, ano lang, e, I use it lang pag may shows.

“I blocked it off a long time ago.

"Parang, I don’t listen to love songs anymore, yung parang nag-e-emote ako.

"I don’t feed that emotion, not unless I need it.

“So when I like someone, hindi na ‘ko like before.

"But then, now, I don’t feed that. That’s why kanina, nung first, I had to do it.

“Kasi when you’re doing scenes with Rocco, for me to be able to pull off these scenes, kailangan ko talagang i-open yung gate na yun and feel that side of me again.

“So I listen to love songs. I watched The Notebook.

"So wala, wala akong choice kasi yun yung character ko.

“’Cause I’m not ano, e... I got tired of feeling like that.

"So I closed it but now I have to open it, so good luck.”

Paliwanag pa ni Lovi, mahirap gampanan ang isang mabait na karakter dahil limitado ang puwedeng gawin nito.

Aniya, “Nahihirapan ako i-portray because konti lang kasi yung magagawa mo with such character.

“You won’t be able to do something amazing unless you’re really, you know, that great of an actress.

"Kasi it’s hard to devote something really good in such a small margin lang na ibibigay sa’yo.

“’Cause if all you’re gonna do is cry the whole time, it’s the same old thing kasi, e.

"Ako pa naman, personally, I have this thinking, I don’t believe in crying all the time in scenes.

“I’m not the type of artist that cries, or gives that need to cry on TV all the time. Hindi yun yung gusto ko.

"We don’t always cry naman in certain situations. I just want to keep it real.

“But with my character, if you want to keep it real, you’re just gonna cry the whole time, paulit-ulit.

"So I want something different din.

“E, ganun pa naman ako, I always try to put something different, add things.

"But this one kasi, limited siya, e. So nahihirapan ako na binigyan ako ng limited na [role]…” wika niya.

Ngunit dahil may twist nga ang istorya ng Yesterday’s Bride, sa ikalawang bahagi naman nito ay magkakaroon ng pagbabago sa kanyang role na makikilala naman bilang Loraine.

TALENTED ACTRESS. Mas gusto daw gampanan ni Lovi ang mga role na kakaiba.

Kung ano pa ang gusto niyang gawin sa hinaharap, wika niya,“Siguro anything na mabibigay sa ‘kin, I’ll be fine with it as long as ma-deliver ko nang tama.

“But siguro something edgy, something disturbing. I want to play parang someone who’s, like, crazy, addict.”

Kahit anim na taon pa lamang si Lovi sa showbiz, maituturing siya na isa sa pinakamagaling na aktres ng kanyang henerasyon.

Patunay nito ang tatlong best-actress awards na natanggap na niya. Idagdag pa rito ang best supporting actress award na natanggap niya mula sa Star Awards at Luna Awards ngayong taon para sa Yesterday Today Tomorrow.

Paano nga ba nahasa ang talento niya sa pag-arte?

“I don’t know. Experience, for me, dun ko lang siguro kinukuha lahat ng mga emotions and I make sure na hindi ako mandadaya sa mga scenes.

“I hate it kasi when I’m tired and kailangan mong mandaya sa eksena.

“Siguro I’ve been blessed with roles din, and yung mga nakakasama ko, they’re very, very, helpful talaga."


SUNSHINE DIZON. Pagpapatuloy ni Lovi sa kawalan niya ng kaalaman sa acting: “Like si Ate Shine, Sunshine Dizon, during Bakekang, I didn’t know how to act at all. As in, wala, nothing.

“But then, she would sit there, watch me sa monitor and help me, motivate me kung ano yung mga gagamitin kong emotions.

"Siya talaga yung biggest help ko talaga.”

Masasabing sa role niya bilang Kristal sa Bakekang unang tumatak si Lovi bilang aktres. Malaking bahagi nga raw nito ay dahil sa bida ng nasabing serye na si Sunshine Dizon.

Malaki talaga ang pasasalamat ni Lovi kay Sunshine.

Wika pa niya, “My first soap, it was her soap Bakekang, talagang nakaupo siya dun and wala siyang tulog and everything, babantayan niya ’ko.

“She’d help me, as in hinahawakan niya yung kamay ko, talk to me, and we’d talk about my real stories sa buhay, ganyan.

“And then, sasabihin niya kung ano yung gagamitin ko for this and that. Kaya malaki talaga yung natulong niya sa ‘kin.

“That’s why when I got my first ever award, she was there and I thanked her.

"Kasi, yun nga yung maganda, e. Sometimes you find genuinely nice people na parang yung tipong tutulungan ka.

"’Cause a lot of people here, let’s face it, they’d be parang madamot, competitive, ganyan.

“Pero yun nga, that’s one thing I learned from her talaga, na andami talaga. She was really, really, nice.

“And she was close to Papa [the late Fernando Poe Jr.] pala.

"She told me na nung bata pa siya, si Papa, parang love na love siya nun, so parang it’s her way of giving thanks to Papa.

“So thankful talaga ako kay Ate Shine. And idol ko siya kasi I watched her during Bakekang, kami-kami.

“I watch her from someone who’s laughing, ‘til pag action, bigla na lang siyang... parang, ’Pa’no yun?’” pagtukoy ni Lovi sa mabilis na pagpapalit ng emosyon ni Sunshine.

THE BRIDE ONCE MORE. Gaganap na naman ng title role bilang “bride” si Lovi sa pelikulang The Bride and The Lover.

Makakasama niya rito sina Paulo Avelino at Jennylyn Mercado, na gaganap bilang boyfriend at bestfriend niya, respectively.

Kaabang-abang din daw ang mga maiinit na eksena nila ni Paulo sa pelikulang ito, na tapos na din nilang ishoot.

Ani Lovi, “We just shot the intimate scene. Oh my god!

"Cliché kasi, e. I always say na may love scene, ganyan-ganyan. Just watch it na lang, it’s just so crazy.

“Sino bang makakapag-ayaw kay Joel Lamangan? Kapag may sinabi siyang do this, do that—go! Wala ka nang choice.

“But it was done really nice talaga.

"So when we were watching, wala, lahat ng ginawa ko, it’s just… Lahat, everything I’ve done before, I don’t think mabi-beat ‘to kasi it’s wild, yun sabi ni Paulo.

“What we shot—over! It’s crazy talaga.

"Although it was really nice. Like what you watch in the film sa US, yung parang how they do it.

"So parang nakakexcite,” excited na kuwento ni Lovi.
