Nathalie Hart Happy With Her Role As The Dangerous Third Wheel Who Comes Between Xian Lim & Coleen Garcia In 'Sin Island', Opening Valentine's Day

NATHALIE HART is very glad to do her first movie with Star Cinema, "Sin Island". She started in showbiz using her real name, Princess Snell, as part of Star Magic Batch 16 in 2008. The next year, she joined Starstruck 5 and qualified as one of the Final 14. But her acting career wasn’t really going anywhere and she even joined Survivor Philippines, but failed to survive it.

She then left GMA-7 and became a talent of Leo Dominguez, who gave her a new screen name, Nathalie Hart. She played supporting roles in several movies with Regal then played the lead role in BG Productions’ sexy drama, “Siphayo”, for which she did a full frontal nudity scene and won an acting award in New York. She also had such sexy scenes with JC de Vera and Joel Torre in Cinema One’s “Tisay”.

Now she goes back to ABS-CBN as part of a love triangle in Star Cinema’s explosive sex-drama, “Sin Island”, where she plays Tasha, the other woman of Xian Lim who’s married to Coleen Garcia as Kanika. Once again, she does a lot of baring in her love scenes with Xian as David. Is she now more at home doing such daring scenes?

“You know, doing such scenes is never easy,” she says. “Sa ‘Siphayo’ noon, naging hysterical talaga ako but I still did it kasi committed ako sa project. Akala nyo ba madaling maghubad? It’s really a struggle to do baring scenes and sumasama ang mood ko lagi at ayokong makipag-usap kahit kanino after doing it. Ang daling sabihing trabaho lang yan, but still nakakasama pa rin ng loob. I just console myself by saying na, at least, may maipapakita naman ako.”

So why is she doing such scenes if she’s not really happy with them? “Well, you have to start somewhere, di ba? Dito ko nabigyan ng lead roles, e. But I don’t intend to do it forever. Gusto ko lang siyang gamiting stepping stone but I want to really grow as an actress na rerespetuhin ng tao dahil sa talent niya. Gusto kong makita nila that I have more to offer than just my body. Dito sa ‘Sin Island’, maganda yung role ko, but very dark, kasi nagkaroon ng twist. Of course, hindi ko puedeng i-reveal kung ano kasi spoiler na yun. Basta I want to assure the viewers na kapag pinanood nila ito, hindi yung paghuhubad ko lang ang mapapansin nila kundi yun ding intensity ng acting ko lalo na towards the end of the movie na big surprise talaga kung ano ang mangyayari sa lahat ng characters.”

Star Cinema must really like her as she's now doing another new movie for them, a yet untitled love drama where she's paired with the comebacking Diether Ocampo.
