DENISE ESTEBAN was introduced in the Brillante Mendoza film ‘Kaliwaan’ then she played more supporting roles in films like “Secrets”, “Expensive Candy” and the projects of Direk GB Sampedro like the films “Kinsenas Katapusan” and “Doblado” and the mini-series “High On Sex”. 

Now, Direk GB is launching her in her first solo movie, “Kara Krus”. 

Denise plays Adela, a young mother and responsible and loving wife of Adrian Alandy as Marvin. 

But their peaceful existence becomes complicated when Adela turns out to have a twin sister, Lena.  

And Adela and Lena have totally different personalities. 

Adela is prim and proper while Lena is very aggressive and loud. 

Marvin would later notice that his wife is turning into someone else, becoming more adventurous and wild in their lovemaking, when she was quite conservative and reserved before.   

Soon violent crimes are happening in their neighborhood and the culprit maybe one of the twins. 

So what is the mystery behind the twins, Adela and Lena? 

Discover the secrets of the twins in this intriguing story of sex and murder, “Kara Krus”, and find out why the movie’s title is “Kara Krus”. 

We ask Denise how is it playing the dual roles of Adela and Lena.

“First time for me to do it so nahirapan talaga ako, lalo sa part ni Lena who is wild, kasi mabait ako in real life,” she says. 

“But I enjoyed playing them both kasi sobrang magkaiba sila and I welcomed the challenge.”

How did she prepare playing dual roles? 

“When i read the script, kinabahan talaga ako. Kaya ko ba ito? But they made me undergo a workshop to help. 

"And I also asked Direk GB how exactly he wants me to portray each character. 

"He was a big help kasi kung minsan, nalilito ako and he’s the one who guides me. We made sure na magkaiba talaga ang personality nina Adela and Lena from one another. 

"Pati sa boses nila, binago ko. At sa mga mata pa lang nila, you’d see na mahinhin yung isa at wild yung isa.  

"I’m just happy that they trusted me with this kind of role, kaya naman I made sure I gave it my all kasi I don’t want to let down their expectations.”

How is it working with Adrian Alandy as her leading man? 

“Kuya Adrian is okay, magandang katrabaho. But when I learned he’ll be my leading man, nahiya ako kasi mas senior siya sa akin. 

"At malaki ang age gap namin kasi 42 na raw siya and I’m 20. But when we started shooting, hindi ko naman naramdaman na mas matanda siya sa’kin. 

"Naging okay naman kami, kasi mas malawak ang experience niya compared to me and he’s really very helpful lalo sa love scenes namin, dahil sobrang challenging ang mga pinagawa sa amin dito.”
