Bela Padilla Plays A Fearless Broadcast Journalist In New Movie 'Aso, Pusa'T Daga'

BELA PADILLA also wants to thank Direk Gina Alajar for guiding her in “Magdalena”. “Kung hindi niya ako tinutukan nang husto in every scene, I don’t magagampanan ko nang maayos ang papel ko, title role pa naman,” she says.

So what’s next after “Magdalena”? “Wala pa, inaayos pa raw ang next show ko, but I’ve just finished a new movie, ‘Aso, Pusa’t Daga’, the directorial debut of Yani Yuzon who handles acting workshop for new actors on GMA. I play a good role as a courageous broadcast journalist who’s up against a corrupt warlord politician, played by Joel Torre. It’s Direk Yani himself who offered me the lead role after I attended one of his acting workshops. Although first directorial job niya yun, hindi siya mukhang baguhan kundi parang sanay na sanay na siya sa padidirek.”

Is she still willing to play supporting roles now that she has appeared in a lead role? “Oo naman, lalo na kung ang susuportahan ko are great actresses like Lorna Tolentino. I really want to work with her.”
