In the wake of Mara Clara’s popularity in 2011, its lead stars Kathryn Bernardo and Julia Montes graced Gandang Gabi Vice for a night of playtime and fun with the Unkabogable Star Vice Ganda.
They talked about the show and their characters. Vice Ganda commended the tandem for their sterling performances in the series. He said Kathryn was effective as a pitiful poor daughter and Julia as a mean girl.
There seems to be a reversal of roles in real life. Kathryn was born in a comfortable life while Julia had an opposite tale. Julia is also the quiet one off-cam. But Kathryn clarified that she is not spoiled. Her family simply wants to protect and take care of her.
The host-comedian dared his guests to a role play with a twist. Kathryn and Julia would exchange characters. Kathryn will be Clara and Julia will act as Mara.
For the first part of the comedy skit, Vice Ganda, acting as Clara, would accuse Julia of stealing her jewelry. They would exchange dramatic lines from there.
To thicken the plot, Vice Ganda asked a guy from the audience to join them and pretend as Christian (Albie Casiño). Kathryn unleashed her inner ‘kontrabida’ and confronted Vice Ganda and ‘Christian’ upon seeing them together.
But because of Vice Ganda’s ‘hirits,’ Kathryn found it easier to laugh than get mad. The skit ended with Kathryn asking ‘Christian’ to choose. And the choice, of course, was Vice Ganda!
