Kris Bernal Paired With Jerico Ejercito, Son Of Gov. Er Ejercito, In Remake Of 'Ben Tumbling'

KRIS BERNAL obviously gained some weight when we interviewed her at the press visit of “Hiram na Puso” at Damar Village, but she feels insecure about it. “Kasi parang ang laki ng mukha ko on screen,” she says.

We tell her it’s actually very becoming and she looks prettier than before when she looked anorexic. “I continue to work out sa gym to make myself more fit and improve my posture kasi nakukuba ako,” she adds.

She’s happy viewers warmly accepted her teamup with Mark Herras in “Hiram na Puso”. “We first worked together in ‘Time of My Life’, pero kay Rocco Nacino ako napunta roon. Masarap katrabaho si Mark kaya masaya kami sa set. Ever since, wala kaming naging problema. I also enjoy working with Direk Gina Alajar as my mom. She’s very helpful in giving tips to improve our acting ni Mark. At nakakatuwa na extended daw kami until the middle of June dahil sa mataas na ratings ng ‘Hiram na Puso’.”

How does she feel now that ex-BF Jay Perillo is lovey-dovey with Gretchen Espina and very demonstrative in expressing his love for the singer openly on Twitter? “Wala. I’m not affected. Happy nga ako kasi happy sila.”

How about her? What’s the score after her aborted romance with Jolo Revilla? “Ewan ko. Walang nanliligaw. Pangit ba ko?” she laughed.

Aside from “Hiram na Puso”, Kris is shooting a new movie, a remake of “Ben Tumbling”, which will launch to stardom Jerico Ejercito, the son of Gov. ER Ejercito who was introduced in “Manila Kingpin: Asiong Salonga”.

“They requested for me sa GMA Artist Center at pinayagan naman ako,” says Kris. “This is directed by Joven Tan and to be shown in September.”

Is it true her next soap is a reunion with Aljur Abrenica, “Sana Dalawa ang Puso Ko”? “Direk Maryo de los Reyes, who helmed us in ‘Dapat Ka Bang Mahalin’, told me nga he’ll direct us in our next show. But there’s no official notice yet from GMA-7 so ayoko munang angkinin. Saka, hindi pa tapos itong ‘Hiram sa Puso’, so focus muna ako rito.”
