Jean Garcia, on Kontrabida roles VS Bida roles, admits being a Kontrabida is more challenging

During the media conference for Nakarehas na Puso with the press, including LionhearTV, on September 15, Kapuso actress Jean Garcia compared doing Kontrabida roles VS Bida roles.

Garcia said she found doing Kontrabida roles fun to portray because of how she could experiment with different looks.

“Kasi ‘yung Kontrabida, mas challenging siya kasi pwede mong laruin ‘yung role. Pwede mong gawin ‘yung lahat ng gusto mo unless hindi ipagawa sayo ng direktor. Mayroon kasing direktor na may iba ‘yung vision niya di ba?

“Pero kasi pag Kontrabida kasi, ang sarap lang niya i-arte, ang sarap niyang– well, lahat, pati pananamit niya, pati buhok, you can do everything. Pwede kang mag-kuko, pwede kang magmakapal na make-up, pwede kang walang make-up, pwede kang magpulang lipstick, lahat pwede mong laruin, pwede mong gawin, kaya siya challenging.”

However, she admitted it was more challenging because of the emotional toll.

“Kaya lang pinakamahirap siyang gawin kasi ang hirap ng palaging galit. Ang hirap ng nananakit ka ng tao. ‘Yung kasing pag umaarte ka, alam mong kailangan mataas ka palagi pag Kontrabida ka. So ‘yung alam mong kulang na lang, pag nag-cut ‘yung director, ‘Diyos ko, mahihimatay na ako.’ Di ba ‘yung galit na galit, mahirap siya emotionally, mahirap siya.”

As for Bida roles, she described them as emotionally draining because of all the crying scenes she had to do.

“‘Yung sa Bida naman, mahirap din kasi emotionally drained ka. Nasasaktan ka, physically and emotionally. So pareho naman siyang mahirap, pero mas parang mas challenging ‘yung Kontrabida at mas nahihirapan ako sa Kontrabida kaysa doon sa Bida na nakakaawa kahit na iyak ng iyak, kasi nilalabas mo lang emotion mo eh.”

She explained that protagonist roles could help actors vent out or release their emotional struggles.

“Hindi katulad ng sa Kontrabida, nilalabas mo ‘yung emotion mo, pero galit ‘yung emotions kaya parang nakakahimatay. Kaya kung magkakaroon ka na nga nag sakit sa puso, magkakaroon ka ng sakit sa puso. Unlike kapag itong nakakaawa ka at iyak ka lang ng iyak, at least na ve-vent out mo kung sakaling may problema ka rin personally. So nakakatulong siya na lalabas mo ‘yung emotions mo sa pamamagitan ng pag-iyak.”

The Kapuso series includes a stellar cast with Claire Castro, Glenda Garcia, Ashley Sarmiento, and Bryce Eusebio.

Nakarehas na Puso, under the direction of Gil Tejada, started airing this September 26 on GMA Afternoon Prime.
