I want to be the Lisa Kudrow of the Philippines. I really love the sitcom Friends, and she's my favorite. Kahit anong ibigay mo sa kanyang role, mako-convince ka in a funny way. Kaya niyang i-reinvent yung sarili niya, be it a mentally-ill person or a business executive. I want to be able to do the same.
Friends ran for 10 seasons. Do you see Banana Nite lasting that long, and would you remain as cast member 'til the bitter end?
Yes and yes!
When you first entered showbiz, did you ever wish you have a love team?
Nooooo! Hindi, ayoko!
You don't want any part of the KathNiels and TomDens?
I never want to be dependent sa guy, at lalo na sa career ko – ayokong maging dependent sa ka-love team ko. I’m an independent woman!
Which probably means you're a bossy girlfriend. Defend yourself!
I don’t know if it’s a good or bad thing, but I just have a dominant personality. It’s not that I want to be the boss; it’s just that I know my way around most things. For the longest time I’ve been doing things on my own. I guess mahirap lang ako i-control, but once I allow you to take control, it means I’m willing to be your slave, ha-ha!
