Kris Bernal on Aljur Abrenica’s decision to leave GMA: “Wala akong karapatang i-judge siya kasi ’di ko alam yung pinagdaanan niya.”

Kris Bernal on learning about Aljur Abrenica’s decision to rescind his contract and file a case against GMA-7: “Nakakalungkot talaga pero kung ano man desisyon niya, sabi ko na lang, ’Lagi mo ipag-pray, at lagi mong pag-isipan nang mabuti. Huwag ka magpaapekto sa ibang tao. Lagi mo isipin ang ikabubuti ng sarili mo.’”


PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) chatted with Kris Bernal at the recently held AMA Shout Out concert and dance competition held last August 23 at the Cuneta Astrodome, Pasay City.

Kris is an endorser of AMA Computer Learning Center (ACLC).

The young actress talked about her upcoming drama series on GMA, Hiram na Alaala, which also stars Rocco Nacino and Dennis Trillo.

“’Di ba ’pag nahihiwalay tayo sa mga mahal natin sa buhay, o kaya may nawawala sa atin na mahalaga, yung mga alaala na lang ang pinanghahawakan natin?

“Sa Hiram na Alaala, ako si Andrea Dizon. Isa akong laking Baguio.

“Boyfriend at kababata ko si Rocco Nacino. Si Rocco at si Dennis sumali sa PMA, so military sila. Hanggang sa may nangyaring trahedya sa mga mission nila.

“Doon na naging complicated at pumasok ang importance ng memories ng boyfriend ko na si Rocco,” Kris revealed about her new role.

DIFFERENT IMAGE. How does she compare her previous roles with her current role as Andrea?

She expounded, “Sa mga dating roles ko, lagi akong pa-sweet.

“Ngayon yung unang beses na binigyan talaga nila ako ng mature na role.

“First time ko rin maging leading man si Dennis Trillo. Ito talaga na-challenge ako kasi heavy drama siya.

“Ngayon na lang ako ulit humawak ng show na napakabigat ng mga eksena ko.

“Sa dami ng nagawa ko na shows, lagi akong comedy at drama, ito talaga pure drama.”

DRAMATIC SCENES. Where does she get her inspiration for heavy drama roles?

Kris said she studies and imbibes her character’s story.

“Mababaw rin kasi luha ko,” she confessed.

“Pero humuhugot ako sa character talaga, lahat ng experiences and background ng character pinag-aaralan ko.”

Will her fans see a more mature Kris?

Kris said, “Dito aabot na ako sa point na magpapakasal na ako, magkakapamilya ako, magkaka-anak ako. Ganoon na siya ka-mature.

“Hindi katulad before, na ni boyfriend yata wala, sweet-sweetan lang talaga.”

MISSING ALJUR. Kris also told PEP that she doesn’t have a project lined up with former co-star Aljur Abrenica. Kris and Aljur starred in GMA’s drama and royalty series, Prinsesa ng Buhay Ko, which finished airing early this year.

When asked about rumors of Aljur leaving GMA, Kris said she was surprised, but still has respect for her former co-star.

“Nagulat din ako, pero hindi ko kasi alam kung ano ang nararamdaman ni Aljur, e.

“Wala akong karapatang i-judge siya kasi di ko alam yung pinagdaanan niya. Si Lord lang nakakita lahat kung ano ang totoo.

“Nakakapanghinayang talaga, kasi pag lumipat siya, ibig sabihin nun hindi ko na siya makakapares.

“Nakakalungkot talaga pero kung ano man desisyon niya, sabi ko na lang ’Lagi mo ipag-pray, at lagi mong pag-isipan nang mabuti.

“’Huwag ka magpaapekto sa ibang tao. Lagi mo isipin ang ikabubuti ng sarili mo.’”

Does she miss Aljur now that they are not working together?

“Oo naman. Mami-miss ko talaga siya,” she said.

DARING ROLES. Kris has been in the entertainment industry for a few years now. Is she ready to face more challenging roles or perhaps, appear in a sexy role?

“Sabi ko naman, every time tinatanong ako, kaya ko ang sexy roles, ready naman ako diyan. Pero siyempre paghahandaan ko.

“Kasi kung babagay sa akin at kailangan na para sa career ko, gagawin ko. Pero kung hindi naman, ’wag muna, ’wag nating pilitin.

“Kung umabot sa point na babagay na sa akin, okay ako magpa-sexy, pero pinaghahandaan talaga,” she stressed.

She expressed her trust in her parent network, GMA, in handling major image decisions.

“Alam naman talaga nila kung anong makakabuti sa akin,” Kris asserted.

POSING FOR A MEN’S MAGAZINE. Kris will be featured in a future issue of Women’s Health. Is she open to being featured in a men’s magazine?

“Siguro aabot sa ganun, pero may limits pa rin.

“Hindi ako puwedeng all-out, iba pa rin kasi kung paano ako pinalaki ng parents ko.

“Lumaki rin ako na napakahinhin at conservative.

“Hindi ko pa rin talaga kaya na talaga na bare lahat,” she added with a laugh.

FURTHER EDUCATION.The young actress also said she used to be a Nursing major before joining StarStruck in 2007. Does she have plans to continue her studies?

“Basta mabigyan lang ako ng free time, ready ako mag-aral since may online courses na rin sa ACLC,” she said.

Since ACLC has online classes, what would she take up if she had time to study?

“Siguro Management. Nag-nursing na ako noon. Feeling ko di ko na siya magagamit ngayon.

“Gusto ko yung magagamit ko, habang nag-a-artista, may business ako,” she added.

ADVICE TO FANS. As an endorser of ACLC, what advice can she give to her fans who are studying or pursuing a goal?

“Whatever their dreams are, ’wag sila paghinaan ng loob kung feeling nilang kulang sila, kasi eto lang kayang gawin nila.

“As long as andyan lang yung passion nila at andoon din ang determination nila, maaabot nila ’yan,” she said.

Citing her experience during her StarStruck days, Kris said, “Yun yung na-experience ko nung sumali ako ng StarStruck.

“I don’t act, I don’t dance or sing. Pinush ko talaga, kapag pinakanta ako, kakanta talaga ako, pag pinasayaw ako, sasayaw talaga ako.

“Kahit hindi malambot yung katawan ko, sumasayaw ako.

“Kahit hindi ko kaya noong una, feeling ko dahil pinush ko sarili ko, kaya nandito ako ngayon.”
