On October 27, Kapuso Breakout Star Claire Castro said she had fun portraying Nagbabagang Luha‘s Cielo.
During a media conference held for the Nagbabagang Luha breakout artist, Castro said her role helped her release repressed feelings.
“I give a lot of people chances po, kunyari they’ve done me dirty so I don’t let it out kaagad. Feel ko po, ‘yun po ‘yung chance ko na ilabas doon po sa scene na ‘yun kasi hindi po nailalabas.”
Castro added that she prefers over-the-top roles similar to Cielo.
“For me, kasi mahirap po siguro ‘yung nakakaawang character. Because I had a conversation with a co-star and I asked her, kasi may mas experience po siya sa akin. Sabi niya po mas mahirap daw po ‘yung nakakaawang character.
“So if ever pong may dumating na ganon, pag-aaralan ko po talaga. Pero for me, mas gusto ko po ‘yung baliw-baliwan, kasi mas nae-express ko po ‘yung hindi ko nae-express. Kasi, normally po I’m a quiet person.”
She is the daughter of actor Diego Castro, and made her mark in showbiz with her portrayal of Cielo in the recently concluded GMA Afternoon Prime Series, Nagbabagang Luha. People now consider her as one of the breakout artists in the series.
Castro attributed her emotional depth for her character to her Dad.
“We were also having the same conversation. In his words po ah, he will laugh if he sees this, may “topak” din po siya, according to him. Kaya hindi po siya nagulat.”
As for her mom, she said she wanted to reach out to her, but they had conflicting schedules.
“Actually, we haven’t been in contact for a long time also /mostly because of our schedules. Nothing–no bad blood or anything, but I would love to reach out din po kahit papaano para mangamusta.”
Nagbabagang Luha starring Glaiza de Castro and Rayver Cruz, recently aired their final episode on GMA Network. Castro’s character shone through as one of the most memorable kontrabida of the series.
Apart from her remarkable performance in the series, she is also one of the nominees for Breakthrough Artist of the Year in the upcoming RAWR Awards 2021.
