Carla, Geoff Broke Up?

CARLA ABELLANA is happy to be part of “Shake Rattle & Roll 12” in the “Funeraria” episode, directed by award-winning indie filmmaker Jerrold Tarog. “It’s his first mainstream film and he’s got plenty of fresh ideas,” she says. “Kakaiba ang style niya in scaring people, so kahit you’re used na to horror flicks, this offers something new. Matatakot ka talaga. I’m the private tutor of two kids who can’t go to school due to some illness. They live in a funeraria with Sid Lucero and Odette Khan. Slowly, I discover they’re aswangs.”

What can Carla say about her dad Rey Abellana’s disapproval of her having a boyfriend in Geoff Eigenmann? “I just want to clarify that he’s not against Geoff. He’s against it kasi I’m still very new raw in showbiz at dapat, career muna ang focus ko. I love my dad and I want to thank him for being protective, but I told him I’m old, responsible and wise enough to make decisions for myself and I think he respects that. Geoff is a good person so he doesn’t have to worry about him.”

Some folks say it might affect their work, like when they taped for GMA’s “Puso ng Pasko” when they seem to be having an LQ. “I don’t think being on can affect our careers adversely. Siempre, depende na yan sa dalawang taong nagmamahalan and how will they handle their relationship. Hindi kami break, we’re still together.” How’s it working with Geoff’s cousin in “Shake 12”, Sid Lucero? “It’s great. They’re both very good, intense actors. We had fun working together.” So who’s handsomer? “Magkaiba sila, pero siempre, sasabihin ko, si Geoff.”
