Rhian Ramos Flattered By Positive Feedback She Gets For Her Wacky Portrayal Of Zoe In 'TOTGA', Not Ready To Tie The Knot Yet With Racer BF

RHIAN RAMOS is celebrating her 12th year in showbiz. “I started in 2006 as the new leading lady of Richard Gutierrez in ‘Captain Barbell’,” she says. “I was only 15 then at hindi ko naman talaga gusto mag-artista, but they made me audition kasi ang dapat na kapartner dun ni Richard, si Angel Locsin, hindi na puede dahil binigay sa kanya yung Darna.”

She was so surprised when she was the one chosen to play Richard’s love interest. “Kasi wala akong acting experience at all. I now confess that, at the start, wala talaga sa puso ko ang pag-arte. Kaya nasabihan ako four years later na ang tagal ko na raw na artista, hindi pa rin ako marunong umarte. It was then I realized that I have to take my craft seriously.”

But now, after 12 years, she’s glad to get positive comments for her comic portrayal of sexy swimwear designer Zoe in ‘The One that Got Away’. “Very effective daw ako at kwela in my hilarious scenes and that’s really flattering. I especially enjoy reading the positive comments sa social media na parang kontrabida raw ako, but lovable ang dating. But I really want to thank all my co-stars, Lovi Poe, Max Collins, Dennis Trillo and Jason Abalos. Magagaling sila so I have to level up to them para hindi nila ako maiwanan.”

She’s currently in a relationship with racer Jason Choachuy. Her co-host in “Taste Buddies”, Solenn Heussaff, and her co-star in “TOTGA”, Max Collins, both just got married. How about her? Any wedding plans soon? “No plans yet kasi, at 27, ang dami ko pang gustong gawin sa buhay. I want to have my own business, my own clothing line, so I focus muna on my showbiz career para mas makaipon ako. Ni hindi nga namin napag-uusapan seriously ang tungkol sa pag-uusapan. He knows rin naman kasi na hindi ako nagmamadali at siguro, I’ll consider marriage lang kapag 35 na ako.”

Right now, aside from “TOTGA”, she’s also busy shooting a new action movie with the sons of Bong Revilla.
