In a visit to the I Love Betty La Fea set last August 20, Ruffa Gutierrez admitted to ABS-CBN.com that she is scared of how loyal Bea Alonzo fans will react to her role as Daniella, Bea’s domineering boss. “When I was first offered this role, naisip ko, ayoko maging kontrabida. Kasi nakakatakot. Baka batuhin ako ng mga fans ni Bea ng kamatis!” she says.

The former beauty queen is also very much excited to show off her colorful character. “My character is really fun to portray. Buti na lang funny siya at hindi naman masyadong kontrabida. There’s a reason why my character has this kind of attitude, so I thought I might as well play with it na. Naisip ko gagalingan ko na and I’m going to give my 200%. Hindi ko dapat gawing soft yung character kasi hindi naman talaga siya soft. I decided to just give my all and just own the character not just through the clothes she wears pero pati na rin sa actions and mannerisms niya,” she shares.

When Luis was asked on one of his interviews which regards to the offer of Star Cinema Productions for him to take the role of John Lloyd Cruz’s gay lover on his first movie with his mother, the Star For All Seasons, Vilma Santos.

According to him, he is still thinking if he will accept the role and is still waiting for a sign. He adds that his dream roles are being mentally handicapped/challenged or gay roles. He is still not sure if he can do it right now. With it, having kissing scenes or bed scenes, he definitely cannot do it. His mother says that she is okay with the job while his girlfriend, actress, Angel Locsin tells him that it is a good project. He tells everyone that accepting the gay role being offered to him will depend largely in the script.

Personally, i am not impressed with Luis Manzano’s acting. Whenever he acts i feel like he is just over-confident with himself. I believe that accepting a gay role will prove if he really has good acting skills.  Overall, he should accept the role to prove himself with the public.
