Kim Chiu says it is hard to say goodbye to Tayong Dalawa
When Kim Chiu unexpectedly passed away in the recently-concluded teleserye Tayong Dalawa, the Kimerald fans and the rest of the Filipino viewers couldn’t help but feel crushed with such a tragic ending for her much-loved character, Audrey. Little did they know that Kim genuinely felt the pain of saying goodbye to her co-stars while taping her last few scenes in the show. “Sa lahat ng nalungkot din at nagasasabi na buhayin si Audrey, salamat dahil pinaglalaban nila yung character ko. Mahirap kasi habang binabasa ko pa lang yung script, naiiyak na ako. Iniisip ko na sana magawa ko siya ng tama at maganda. Yun naman talaga ang nangyari kasi nararamdaman ko talaga yung lungkot ni Audrey dahil iiwan na niya yung minamahal niya in the same way na minahal ko din yung show namin,” she revealed in an exclusive interview with ABS-CBN.com during Tayong Dalawa’s farewell party last night at 55 Events Place in Quezon City.
Since Tayong Dalawa’s finale seemed to suggest a part two of a very unpredictable family saga, how does she feel knowing that she may not be able to join the powerhouse cast anymore? “Siyempre nakakapanghinayang pero at least may nagawa akong maganda sa unang kwento ng Tayong Dalawa. Although mamimiss ko yung kulitan at non-stop chikahan sa set. Sa nine months na itinakbo ng show na ito, ang dami kong natutunan. Tulad ng paghuhugutan ko pala yung nangyari sa akin dati, mga ganon. Hindi ko ma-explain pero sobrang laking pagbabago ng buhay ko dahil (sa experience ko) dito.”
Aside from the non-stop endorsements coming her way, the 20-year-old star was grateful because this project made her a certified dramatic actress and a teleserye princess to boot. “Ngayon mas confident na ako umarte,” she shyly admitted. But even though she agreed to do a love scene for the first time in this project, Kim stressed that she has no plan to pursue sexier roles anytime soon. “Hudyat lang yun (ng pagiging mas mature ko)! Hindi ko naman lagi gagawin. Ayoko maging bold star! Gusto ko pa rin maging wholesome,” she exclaimed.
Fortunately for her loyal supporters, Kim happily announced that she would be having a movie with her long-time onscreen partner Gerald Anderson and another teleserye soon after that. A reliable source even shared with ABS-CBN.com that they would already start shooting by next week. “Pinaguusapan pa po pero sana matuloy. Magmu-movie muna kami sa ngayon. Hindi ko pa alam yung exact details. Siguro by next week pa mapag-uusapan kasi busy pa lahat ng tao ngayon,” she added.
For those who have closely worked with Kim, it’s actually no big surprise why Deo Endrinal’s business unit loves to tap her for most of their soaps because she is one of the few stars who looks forward to taping scenes round-the-clock. “Ayoko (ng cut off) kasi gusto ko magtrabaho ng magtrabaho. Tsaka parang nabobored ako kapag wala akong ginagawa. E kapag wala akong ginagawa nagsya-shopping na lang ako. E kaysa magshopping (at mag-ubos ng kita) magtatrabaho na lang ako,” she added with a laugh.
Is the ABS-CBN management going to give her a bonus for a job well done in Tayong Dalawa? “Hindi naman, hindi naman. Bonus ko na yung maging si Audrey sa Tayong Dalawa,” she finally stated.
