No more kontrabida roles for Alessandra de Rossi-A A +A
Saturday, June 7, 2014
ALESSANDRA de Rossi said that saying goodbye to antagonist roles on both television and movies was a personal decision.
In a recent interview, the 29-year-old actress said she had a meeting last January with GMA-7 executives where her request for the kind of roles she will be doing with the network was discussed.
She said she is happy with the outcome of the meeting.
"Humingi lang ako ng backstory pag kontrabida kasi normal lang naman sa atin na yung bida, white, tapos yung kontrabida black talaga. Wala ng kwestiyon doon, sobrang bait ng bida tapos yung kontrabida binuhusan mo na ng pagmamahal, masama lang talaga ugali niya," she said.
De Rossi believes that as an actor, she has a big responsibility to her audience.
"Gusto ko may napupulot sila. Lagyan din natin ng kwento para ma-justify naman and at the same time, imbes na galit yung ma-feel nila, empathy naman," she said.
De Rossi said she has grown weary of doing antagonist roles, which she has been doing for almost a decade now. She is looking for a new challenge in her showbiz career.
"Dumating na ako sa point na hindi na ako nag-iisip at lahat ng linya nasabi ko na. Lahat ng atake nagawa ko na. Nakakapagod and andoon yung feeling na wala na ba akong pwedeng i-offer," she added.
"As an actor, gusto ko din ng variety. Ayoko ko ng label na pag tinanong sinong artista, tapos sabihin na si Alessandra, 'ay siya yung kontrabida'. Parang wala na ba akong ibang pwedeng gawin?" she said.
De Rossi "Magkano Ba Ang Pag-ibig" last year with Heart Evangelista and is now part "Ang Dalawang Mrs. Real" with Lovi Poe, Dingdong Dantes and Diamond Star Maricel Soriano
When asked if she is still willing to accept kontrabida roles in the future, she said she is not closing her doors.
"Open parin naman ako pero kailangan malaman ko saan siya nanggagaling. Kasi ayoko na din ng tanggap ng tanggap lang. Not necessarily madrama pero pag nabasa mo yung script mapapaisip ka na paano ba gagawin. Yung rehearsal pa lang kinakabahan ka na kasi baka hindi mo magawa ng tama yun," she said.
The actress meanwhile said she is not yet thinking of settling down as she feels like she's starting again in the entertainment industry.
"Nasa age ako na gusto ko mag debut. Hindi ko pa nakikita yung sarili ko ngayon, kasi parang may iba kang priority, may ibang spice sa buhay mo. Kasi siguro kung two years ago ako tinanong, baka gusto ko. Excited talaga ako na may magawang bago naman," she ended. (Sunnex)
