BEA Binene is happy to be back on primetime in the action-drama, “Beautiful Justice”, which starts airing on September 9. She plays a young woman whose brother, played by Anthony Magbanua, is killed by drug pushers and she is now seeking justice for his untimely demise. She joins Yasmien Kurdi and Bea Binene as crimefighters and they become like the trio of ass kicking women in “Charlie’s Angels”.
For someone who started as a child actress, this is her most mature role to date. “Kasi ang tingin ng ibang tao sa’kin, nene pa rin,” she says. “So I’m trying to project a more mature image. Pati boses ko, binabaan ko na para hindi magmukhang boses ng little girl.”
She’s also trying to project a sexier image. “Yung mga damit ko rito, medyo mas revealing. I’m sure maninibago 'yung iba kasi ako mismo, naninibago rin. But I have to do it so I won’t get stuck in teenybopper roles. Kailangan ng transition, ng transformation, pero kailangan ding hindi pilit ang dating but natural lang.”
Is she ready to do kissing scenes? “It will depend sa story, sa eksena, kung ano 'yung requirement sa role ko. Dito, I trust our production team, lalo na si Direk Mark Reyes na director ko na sa ‘Tween Hearts’ pa lang so lumaki ako sa kanya. I’m sure hindi naman nila ako isusubo sa isang sitwasyong hindi ko makakayang gawin. Maganda 'yung role ko rito sa ‘Beautiful Justice’ as Kitkat. Beautician ako rito and later on, magagamit nila 'yung talent ko sa pagme-make up kapag may missions kami na kailangan naming mag-disguise.”
