- Kris Bernal will star in an upcoming horror series
- She is set to portray an unusual character, a ghost
- She said she had no problems taking on the role
Kapuso actress Kris Bernal will soon star in the upcoming series Hanggang sa Dulo ng Buhay Ko. It will premiere on July 22 and will replace Dragon Lady on GMA network’s Afternoon Prime line-up.
Along with Kris, Megan Young, Rayver Cruz, and Kim Domingo are also set to top-bill the upcoming horror series under the direction of Jorron Monroy.
The series will star Kris in an unusual role, that of being a ghost named Naomi. After becoming the lead actress in her previous series, Kris now plays the lead antagonist in the horror-thriller show as the evil spirit who will destroy two couples.
According to the actress, the role is a huge contrast to her image as a sweet actress in her previous teleseryes.
“Ditching the iyakin and pa-sweet role for this psychopath-turned-ghost role!
“I have no problems taking on a horrible character after spending the past decade as ‘always a sweetheart,'” Kris wrote on Instagram with her picture as a ghost.
The actress said that takes her inspiration from famous horror movies to prepare for her role.
“To prepare for the role I had to watch a number of horror-suspense-thriller films, with eyes and ears wide open!!
“The Sixth Sense, Insidious, Conjuring, Shutter, to name a few. Haaaaay! Ang lala! #HanggangSaDuloNgBuhayKo will air this July on GMA Afternoon Prime,” the actress wrote.
Kris won the fourth season of the reality-based talent search StarStruck in 2006 as the Ultimate Love Team with Mart Escudero.
Although she started in showbiz with Escudero as her partner, Bernal garnered more attention when she was paired with Aljur Abrenica.
She became part of different GMA Network shows including Boys Nxt Door, Zaido: Pulis Pangkalawakan, and Dyesebel.
Bernal and Abrenica starred in their first afternoon series Sine Novela: Dapat Ka Bang Mahalin? in 2009 and a primetime drama series All My Life in the same year.
She also starred in the series The Last Prince (2010), Machete (2011), Time of My Life (2011), Hiram na Puso (2012), Coffee Prince (2012), Prinsesa ng Buhay Ko (2013), Hiram na Alaala (2013), Little Nanay (2013), Impostora (2017), and Asawa Ko, Karibal Ko (2018).
