Kaye Abad reveals her toughest scenes in ‘Annaliza’

As the kontrabida Stella in the hit drama series Annaliza, Kaye Abad may seem to be one tough and unyielding woman, but the actress admitted that there have been times when her role has left her a bit depressed.

In an exclusive interview with Kaye on the set of Annaliza, she revealed what she felt were the hardest scenes she took for the show: first, her confrontation scene with Guido regarding their separation and second, when Annaliza knelt down before her, asking why she is so mad at her.

According to Kaye, she almost got carried away in her scene opposite Zanjoe Marudo who portrays the role of Guido. She referred to her second confrontation with him when they go separate ways. “Pag magaling kasi yung aktor na kasama mo, madadala ka eh. But then sa character ko, hindi ako pwedeng maawa kay Guido, hindi ako pwedeng maawa sa sarili ko pero nung eksena, nung dialogue na, ‘Balang araw hindi ako magtataka kung walang magmamahal sa’ yo,’ ano talaga eh, parang kung tao ka talaga tapos makikita mo si Guido na kawawa talaga, niloko mo siya at lahat, bumibigay na ko eh but then hindi ako pwedeng maiyak na naawa ako sa sarili ko at naawa ako kay Guido.”

Her other tough scene was with Andrea Brillantes who plays the role of Annaliza. “Yung kay Andrea na umuwi siya na sinaktan ko siya tapos umabot sa point na lumuhod siya, tinatanong niya ko, ‘Bakit po ba? Bakit po ba galit kayo sa ’kin?’ Grabe yun, as in after that take, tumalikod ako, umiyak talaga ako kasi iba na yun pag bata lumuhod na sayo tapos kinukwestiyon ka na bakit ba galit na galit ka.”

Kaye reiterated that her role as Stella is very challenging as this is the first time she did a kontrabida role. She also added that, “For the past 19 years, puro ako yung kawawa, ako yung umiiyak at ako yung inaapi. Ngayon lang yung ako ang nanakit, ako yung nagagalit parati. Nachallenge ako kasi nga ang amo ng mukha ko.” Kaye also realized that her role is tiring. “For me, mas nakakapagod magalit palagi, sigaw ka ng sigaw parati kaysa sa umiyak.

She is also aware that her role has given her a lot negative feedback, but understands them anyway. “Hindi naman natin maiiwasan yun na magalit sila bilang kung nadadala na sila or naawa sila at kampi sila kay Isabel.”
