“Bagong phase ito sa acting career ko.” Thea Tolentino portrays a transwoman in “Asawa Ko, Karibal Ko”

  • Thea Tolentino will be the antagonist in Asawa Ko Karibal Ko with Kris Bernal and Rayver Cruz.
  • She didn’t hesitate on accepting the role of a transgender woman.
  • She explained why she didn’t accept any projects after Haplos.

It may be a big challenge for Thea Tolentino to portray a transgender in the newest afternoon prime drama series, Asawa Ko Karibal Ko. Aside from being a transgender, Thea will also be the antagonist.

Her character will try her best to get in between Kris Bernal and Rayver Cruz‘s romance.

Any hesitation?

According to Thea, she didn’t hesitate on accepting the role.

“Hindi po, itinuring ko ngang bagong phase ito sa acting career ko… Ready po ako dahil nag-Bova acting workshop ako, at natutunan ko roon ang depth ng acting. Plus first time naming magkakasama ni Kris, at happy ako na ang first teleserye ni Rayver sa GMA, nakasama ako.”

Adjustments.

Thea admitted that she had to change and adjust her voice. Jason Abalos‘ character gets a facial feminization surgery which later becomes Thea’s.

“As a transgender, hindi naman mababago ang boses, kaya kailangang pag-aralan ko ang boses ni Jason Abalos, na siyang magpapa-facial feminization surgery para maging isa siyang babae… Masakit po sa throat, pero nasasanay-sanay na ako. Siguro kapag nagtuluy-tuloy na ang taping namin, maiiba ko na rin ang boses ko. Sa ngayon po kasi, iyong first two weeks ng soap, si Jason pa ang mapapanood, bago ako.”

Thea shared that Ken Chan helps her to portray a transgender woman which he already did in Destiny Rose.

“Thankful po ako kay Ken Chan. Tinuruan niya ako kung paano ang ginawa niya nang gawin niya ang Destiny Rose. Pina-practice ko po ‘yun ngayon. Nagpapasalamat din ako kay Direk Mark ‘Sikat’ dela Cruz sa pagga-guide sa akin sa character ko.

After a long time?

Haplos was Thea’s last project which ended in February this year. Although she didn’t have a regular project after Haplos, she would have guest and regional shows in GMA Network.

“Nagkaroon na rin po ako ng time na mapatanggal ang cyst ko sa breast. Malaki na po kasi, at kailangan na raw tanggalin. Thank God, benign po naman iyong mga tinanggal sa akin. Saka, nakapag-enrol din ako sa Trinity University at kumukuha po ako ng Public Administration. Itutuloy ko po iyon kahit may ginagawa akong soap.”

Asawa Ko Karibal Ko is a different take on infidelity which will air on October 22, Monday after Eat Bulaga.
