Celebrity Slambook with Kim Rodriguez

Because everyone wants to know more about the gorgeous Kim Rodriguez, who plays Xandra in Mars Ravelo’s Darna, we asked her to fill out the ultimate Celebrity Slambook. A little warning though, you will surely fall in love with her fun personality!

First things first, she was born Kim Jerami Rebadulla. She goes with a lot of nicknames. She’s called Kim, Kimay, Kima, Kemmy, or anything her friends could think of.  

The star was born on August 14, 1994. That makes her 28 years old and a Leo. It is said that Leo gals are the queens of charisma, plus they’re fiery and passionate and they go extra in everything they do. This sounds true for Kim who loves to ride her big bike and play badminton. She also has badass drum-playing and DJ-ing skills to showcase. Her original ambition was to become a pilot.

Now who doesn’t love girls with an appetite for fun and adventures? Kim is pretty hard to miss. She describes herself as jolly, and slightly boyish as the only girl in a brood of five. Proving that she’s truly passionate and extra, she defines love as sacrifice, “Gagawin mo lahat kahit mahirap para sa taong mahal mo.”

If you want to impress Kim, bring her Japanese food or take her to the beach. Take note that she also likes the colors red, blue, and white. She loves listening to OPM songs. Her life motto is “time is gold,” meaning she’d rather not waste her time and energy dwelling on negative circumstances. “We only live once. Mas piliin natin maging masaya kesa tambayan ‘yung mga problema natin kasi hindi natin alam kung hanggang kailan lang tayo.”

Kim has a never-give-up attitude. She started as a bit player in numerous television programs until she had her first audition in 2010. She has portrayed both good and villainous roles since, thus she would love to try something new like action or fairy characters.

She considers Angel Locsin her role model in showbiz, thus meeting her for the first time was the ultimate fangirl moment of her life. “Siya ‘yung girl crush ko talaga simula noong bata ako hanggang ngayon. Siya ‘yung gusto ko makatrabaho, siya ‘yung gusto ko makita… Parang gusto kong gayahin ‘yung path niya, like, marami siyang natanggap na awards, mga achievements, ‘yung mga pagtulong niya sa kapwa. Siya ‘yung tinitingala ko talaga,” she gushed about Angel. Meanwhile, her first showbiz friend is Ken Chan.
