Just because KC concepcion’s last teleserye in ABS-CBN was a lead role, some people think she is demoting herself by playing support to Judy Ann Santos in their upcoming show, Against All Odds. I guess “ensemble” doesn’t exist in their vocabulary. Anyhooo, KC doesn’t mind at all especially since Judy Ann is practically her sister.
“I didn’t expect this. I got a call sa handler ko and sabi nila may ino-offer daw ang ABS na bagong teleserye. I wouldn’t thought that I would do it this time because nga busy kami with X-Factor but for some reason I am just too happy to be part of it. Nung nakita ko na si Ate Juday hindi ko na napigilan ang sarili ko, Ate ko talaga siya. Natuwa ako nung nakita ko siya, nung nakita ko si Tita Connie (Reyes), I saw Sam again at yung ibang artista na nakasama namin.”
Naikwento din ni KC na isang dream come true ang makasama niya si Judy Ann Santos. “I never thought talaga na mangyayari. I never thought na ganito din talaga ako na magwo-work ako sa showbiz world like this. I came home wanting to work, wanting to be busy but it gets better and better and I am just too happy to do it.” Dagdag pa ng dalaga, “You know what I thought I would be pressured but she (Judy Ann) really is supportive. This is her teleserye and I am so happy to be part of it. Kung hindi ako yung nalagay sa role na yun malamang panonoorin ko at everyday ng buhay ko sasabihin ko na sana ako yung role na yun.”
Nagbida na si KC Concepcion sa teleseryeng Lovers in Paris at sa ilang pelikula. Ngunit sa pagbangggit niyang this is “Judy Ann’s teleserye,” ibig sabihin ba nito ay tanggap niya ang pagiging isa sa mga supporting cast ng teleserye? “Again, ako, I am not really about popularity. Ang sarap nung magiging samahan siguro ng cast and nung production. Its really a role na hindi siya masyadong nakakapressure in a way kasi ibang-iba pero hindi lang sa iyo umiikot yung kwento. Maraming nangyayari. Magaan sa feeling yung gagawin ko pero the role itself is hindi masyadong magaan talaga.” (source)
C’mon now, this is Judy Ann Santos we’re talking about. Who wouldn’t want to work with her?
