KIM Domingo is happy to support Super Tekla’s launching film, “Kiko en Lala”, that opens in theaters this Wednesday. “I’m also glad to be a part of a comedy movie like ‘Kiko en Lala’ kasi nagamit ko rito lahat ng comic techniques that I learned from being a part of ‘Bubble Gang’,” she says. “I play Aning, leading lady ni Super Tekla in his role as Kiko, 'yung lalaki sa twins na Kiko en Lala. Si Lala naman, 'yung gay, si Derrick Monasterio ang leading man niya.”
She has vowed before that she would stop doing sexy roles so doing a comedy like ‘Kiko en Lala’ is such a welcome project for her. Did she make this vow because of her cager boyfriend with whom she has since sadly broken up?
“Hindi naman po. Basta hangga’t maari, ayaw ko nang magbilad ng katawan. Kaya nga natutuwa akong nalilinya ako sa comedy like ‘Kiko en Lala’ kasi wholesome ako rito. Hindi ko naman totally sinasara 'yung paggawa ng sexy roles. Kung may maganda talagang role in a serious movie, I might consider it. Pero as long as puwedeng umiwas, sa wholesome projects muna ako.”
She’s also happy to be doing a horror serye where she not required to take her clothes off. “Yes, in my current teleserye, ‘Hanggang sa Dulo ng Buhay Ko’, di kailangang magpa-sexy. I’m happy na challenging 'yung role ko as the cousin of Megan Young na sinapian ng evil spirit ni Kris Bernal para akitin ang husband niyang si Rayver Cruz. At 24, gusto ko naman talagang mas ma-recognize ako as a serious actress and not just as a sexy star na nakilala lang sa hubaran.”
So has she entertained any new suitors since she split with her boyfriend some months ago?
“No, I’m happy being unattached at the moment. I don’t even go out dating. Naka-move on na ako and I am just happy to have more time for myself. Kaya I’m not really ready yet to get into another relationship. Huwag muna. I just want to focus on my work now, so I can always give my best in every role they assign to me. Now, I also have more time with my family. When I’m not busy, we go out. Some weeks ago, I treated them to a trip abroad. We went to Bangkok. Every year kasi talaga, gusto kong inililibot ko sila sa iba’t ibang bansa for family bonding.”
She’s hoping “Kiko en Lala” will be a big hit. “Deserving naman si Super Tekla na magkaroon ng launching movie kasi he’s a really funny comedian at alam niya talaga kung paano patatawanin ang tao. Itong movie namin has many laugh out loud scenes, thanks to our director, Adolf Alix, Jr. na huling-huling kung ano ang kiliti ng viewers.”
