Contessa Stars at Sum­mit

YES! (Philippines) - - In this issue -

Two days af­ter the drama se­ries Contessa de­buted on the Af­ter­noon Prime block of GMA last March 19, three of its cast mem­bers—(L-R) Phy­tos Ramirez, Glaiza de Castro, and Jak Roberto—vis­ited the Sum­mit Me­dia of­fices for in­ter­views with YES! and our online af­fil­i­ate,

In their in­ter­view con­ducted via Face­book Live, a fea­ture on the so­cial net­work­ing web­site that gives livestream­ing video ca­pa­bil­i­ties to users, the Contessa stars thanked those who watched their show’s first episodes. They also talked about their roles and their work­ing re­la­tion­ship, which, judg­ing by the way they teased each other and laughed to­gether, is be­yond cor­dial.

Glaiza plays the lead char­ac­ter of Bea, who, af­ter be­ing sent to prison for a crime she didn’t com­mit, rein­vents her­self as Contessa, thirsty for revenge and re­demp­tion. Jak plays Jong, Bea’s loyal best friend and se­cret ad­mirer. Phy­tos is Win­ston, the right-hand man of the main bad guy, Vito, played by Gabby Ei­gen­mann.

The Contessa ti­tle roler, who has taken on strong char­ac­ters in the past, in­clud­ing Pirena in En­can­ta­dia, said of her role in the new se­ries: “Isa siyang sur­prise para sa akin. Hindi ko ini-ex­pect na mabibi­gyan ako ulit ng op­por­tu­nity to tell an­other em­pow­ered story.”

Phy­tos, whose last tele­serye role was also in En­can­ta­dia, as the good­na­tured Pao-Pao, said that he con­sid­ers his lat­est assignment as “isang malak­ing chal­lenge.”

As for Jak, he ad­mit­ted that, in real life, he is just like his char­ac­ter— pro­tec­tive of women. “Da­pat ang girls, pino­pro­tek­ta­han,” he pointed out. “Hindi sinasak­tan, hindi da­pat pina­paasa.”

Contessa airs from Mon­day to Satur­day, af­ter Eat Bu­laga!
