Interview: CHRISSY D. ICAMINA
Any projects, Aliya?
I just finished my first movie entitled Gilingan. But they might change the title kasi hindi ata na-approve kasi may double meaning. Then my next movie is Temptation. And kinukuha rin ako ng Universal Records for the new singing girl group that they’re planning to put up.
Since you mentioned temptation, how do you tempt men?
Through my eyes. They tell me na especially when I’m medyo drunk na, iba na yung mata ko, mas sexy.
So, how were you discovered?
I started as a Rebel Beauty tapos nung na-disband, lumipat ako ng manager, then the producers asked me to change my name. But truth is, hindi kaagad pumasok sa utak ko ang mag-artista kasi para akong ugly duckling nun, maitim, lagi akong nasa labas nun kasi nagbebenta ako ng bote at empanada.
But you finished college. What did you take up?
Mass Com, Major in Broadcasting, in Angeles University. Kaya kung di ako naging artista, I want to work sa media, kahit behind the camera.
