Carmina Villarroel said she does not mind receiving violent reactions on social media in relation to her character in the ABS-CBN series “Bridges of Love.”
Villarroel said she thinks the netizens’ reactions mean that she is doing a great job in portraying her char
“Sa Twitter lang, laging sinasabi nila ang sama-sama ko. Nakikita ko na may violent reaction pertaining to Alexa. Pero sasabihin nila in the end, ‘Ang galing niyo po,
Miss Carmina. Nakakainis po kayo.’ It’s very flattering kasi naiinis sila, ibig sabihin nagwo-work,” she said.
What makes her happier, Villarroel said, is that even young kids appreciate her acting.
“Nag-grocery ako nung isang araw, may mga batang nagpa-pictrue sa akin and sabi na, ‘We always watch your show.’ Bata, as in bata. Naalala ko dati sa ‘Got to Believe,’ yung mga bata ayaw lumapit sa akin kasi medyo [mataray] ako doon na mommy. Dito siguro, surprisingly, iba. Maybe they know me naman na it’s just a role. Nakakatuwa,” she said.
Speaking of kids, how do her twins, Mavy and Cassie, react to her TV role?
“Okay lang. Sasabihin lang nila, ‘Wow mom!’ Alam naman nila na it’s just acting,” she said.
Asked if she and her husband, actor Zoren Legaspi, are finally open to allowing their children to go full-time in showbiz, Villarroel said: “Naka-focus talaga sila sa pag-aaral.”
“Kaya naman kami hindi nape-pressure kasi hindi naman namin nararamdaman na gustong-gusto ng kambal [mag-showbiz]. Alam din naman nila na yun ang priority nila. Maybe kapag nakatapos na sila sa pag-aaral, doon kami mate-tense,” she explained.
For now, Villarroel said her children already feel content when they have TV guestings or appearances on “ASAP.” (MNS)
