MANILA, Feb 24 (Mabuhay) — With Rabiya Mateo now making her way in showbiz, is she also open to doing sexy roles?
In an online interview with the press for “Agimat ng Agila,” the Miss Universe Philippines 2020 said it would not be possible for her to play characters with intimate scenes and nudity in the near future.
“It’s because I just won Miss Universe Philippines and it’ll take a lot of years [pa] siguro. I also consider ’yung audience ko. Usually po kasi ng fans ko is bata, so kailangan ko dahan-dahanin yung image ko,” she said.
“Kino-consider ko rin ’yung mom ko kasi merong restrictions, meron siyang rules kung hanggang saan ba talaga ako,” she added. “It’s safe to say na in the coming three years, ’di ako tatanggap ng sexy roles.”
Rabiya said she valued the work and the people behind it, so she wouldn’t want to commit to a role that she wasn’t a hundred percent ready for yet.
The Ilongga beauty queen currently plays Agent Asha Raj on “Agimat ng Agila” Season 2, which requires her to perform action-heavy stunts. She underwent rigorous training for the role.
She made her acting debut on “Kapuso Mo, Jessica Soho: Gabi ng Lagim IX” in November. (MNS)
