ABS-CBN.com interviewed Carla Humphries during the pictorial for Precious Hearts Romances presents The Substitute Bride set to premiere on February 15, and she shared how happy she is to star in another PHR chapter. “Last year I was in Ang Lalaking Nagmahal Sa Akin with Toni Gonzaga and Derek Ramsay. Here in Substitute Bride I will play Kandra Dela Rosa. She’s an aspiring international model. Very driven siya na maabot ‘yung goals niya kaya nung may dumating na offer sa New York, umalis siya and hindi niya sinipot sa kasal ‘yung fiancé niya na si Brent, played by Rafael Rosell. Pero uuwi ako and I will discover na may Substitute Bride na pala, si Paw Diaz.”
In Ang Lalaking Nagmahal Sa Akin, Carla played the kontrabida opposite Toni, while in The Substitute Bride she will be the thorn in Rafael and Paw’s relationship. Carla said that playing the villain poses a big challenge but she doesn’t want to be typecast in kontrabida roles. “Happy naman ako sa mga ginagawa ko. They’re very good roles na hindi ko matanggihan. Pero sana may mga dumating din na roles na hindi kontrabida. I have no problem playing the villain pero ayoko kasi na puro ‘yun lang. Kahit sino namang artista gusto iba iba ‘yung ginagawa. Doing different roles will help me improve my acting pa.” She will also being taping for Kokey @ Ako where she will play the arch-nemesis of Angel Locsin.
Since PHR is a romance series, kissing scenes and love scene may be expected in some episodes. Carla said that she is comfortable with Rafael as her leading man since they have been friends for quite a long time now. However, the young actress-model still finds it hard to do love scenes. “Sa character ko parang walang love scene, more on kay Paw yata kasi sila ‘yung ikakasal. Pero hindi pa natin sure sa itatakbo ng story. I’ve done a couple of kissing scenes na, one was with Diether Ocampo sa Only You. Love scene wala pa talaga. Naiintindihan ko na bilang artista may mga kailangang gawin, dapat nagma-mature ka rin sa mga roles mo. Honestly medyo uncomfortable pa ako sa mga ganun pero kapag ma-explain naman sa akin nang maayos na kailangan talaga at in good taste naman, and my manager, si Tita Annabelle (Rama), assures me that’s it’s going to be okay, kakayanin ko naman.”
Carla remains single for now but that won’t stop her from having fun this Valentine’s Day. “Loveless ako ngayon e. But I don’t think that’s reason enough para hindi mag-celebrate. Plano namin ng mga single girl friends ko na manood nung movie na Valentine’s Day. Kami ang magkakasama, ‘All The Single Ladies!’ ang drama namin.”
