- Kris Bernal is frustrated for not having any recognition and acting awards
- She said she will choose roles that will help her goal
- She will play an unusual character in Hanggang sa Dulo ng Buhay Ko
Kris Bernal has been a Kapuso actress for more than 12 years and is known for her various roles in teleseryes. She headlined numerous GMA Network series after her win in the fourth season of StarStruck.
However, the actress recently became more vocal about her frustrations over having no recognition or awards as an actress.
Kris said that from now on, she’ll choose roles that will help her aim for an award as an actress.
“Kung hindi naman meaty ang role, parang pass muna ko,” Kris, who recently starred in the movie KontrAdiksyon with Jake Cuenca, said.
“Yung gusto mo na talaga gumawa ng role na mapapansin ka hindi ‘yong parang nadaanan lang. ‘Yong puwede kang mabigyan ng recognition ‘yon na ‘yong habol ko eh,” Kris told entertainment reporters in an interview after the press conference of her newest GMA series Hanggang sa Dulo ng Buhay Ko.
She also shared why she chose various roles. “Kaya ko rin tinatanggap ‘yong mga roles na kakaiba kasi ‘yon ‘yong habol ko talaga.
“Like, for so long, every year may show ako, more than 12 na ang shows ko, hindi talaga ako nabibigyan ng award,” Kris said.
Kris believes she needs to work harder to get what she has been eyeing for in her past years in showbiz.
“Yon pa rin ‘yong mindset ko. Kasi lagi nga ako binibigyan ng magagandang roles na kakaiba, pero ‘di ko alam bakit hindi ko talaga siya makuha,” Kris said.
“Kailangan siguro talagang husayan at husayan ko pa talaga. Kaya every time na nabibigyan ako ng bagong role at kakaiba ‘yon nga siyempre inaano ko sa performance ko.”
Kris likes her role in the upcoming horror series Hanggang Sa Dulo ng Buhay Ko where she’ll portray a ghost. According to her, it’s the kind of challenge she has been looking for.
“Gusto ko lagi challenge eh. So kahit ang hirap-hirap niya, pagod na pagod ako lagi iyakan na nakakabaliw na alam mo ‘yon ang dami kong kailangan isipin at ibigay na emosyon sa eksena. Gusto ko ‘yon eh,” she said.
The actress was then asked if she felt the frustration over the lack of recognition for her hard work and if she questioned herself about her shortcomings as an actress.
“Oo naman, kasi ibinigay ko naman ang todo ko. Ano kaya ang kulang pa?”
The Kapuso actress will star, for the first time, as an antagonist on the upcoming horror series Hanggang sa Dulo ng Buhay ko. Her character, Naomi, will be a vengeful ghost trying to ruin the lives of her ex-boyfriend Matteo played by Rayver Cruz and his new love Yvie portrayed by Megan Young. The series will premiere on July 22 in GMA Network’s afternoon line up.
Among her notable series are Dapat Ka Bang Mahalin (2009), All My Life (2009), The Last Prince (2010), Koreana (2010-2011), Time of My Life (2011), Hiram Na Puso (2012), Coffee Prince (2012), Prinsesa Ng Buhay Ko (2013-2014), Hiram Na Alaala (2014-2015), Little Nanay (2015), Impostora (2017-2018), and Asawa Ko, Karibal Ko (2018-2019).
