It has been months since Kadenang Ginto barged into every Kapamilya’s afternoon. In its course so far, we have seen all shades of good and bad from the warring mother-daughter tandems of Romina (Beauty Gonzales) and Cassie (Francine Diaz) against the likes of Daniela (Dimples Romana) and Marga (Andrea Brillantes). From what we have seen, the story is far from over. But we wanted to know, what’s new with Marga?
Last time Andrea dropped by Kapamilya Chat, she was worried about stepping into the shoes of someone so evil. Any loyal fan of hers know that she is exactly the opposite of Maxwell’s queen bee. Still, she has done wonders with the role and has consistently proven that she has what it takes to be that kontrabida we all love to hate. “Medyo nakakawalang energy lang kasi parati siyang galit,” she described.
A day does not go by without Marga exerting her dominance by shouting at someone or some other more elaborate scheme. Yet, being angry all the time is not as monotonous as it seems. The growing challenge for Andrea is how to present different levels to her emotions. “Since parati siyang masungit, parati siyang galit, paano ko siya bibigyan ng levels?” she explained. As the story progresses, naturally there will be more intense scenes. “Dapat mas pataray ka nang pataray,” she added.
By now, viewers also know that there are more sides to Marga than just being diva. For the most part, her wickedness is only a result of her mother’s constant insistence to be number one—more importantly, be better than Cassie. Underneath this cold and cruel façade, however, Marga actually has a heart. This inner conflict is what Andrea has to subtly show, “kontrabida na mayroon pabring dahilan.”
Andrea continued with a laugh, “pero masama pa rin siya.” Turns out viewers of the series are not the only ones who loathe the character. The young actress admitted that even she gets annoyed with herself, especially when she has to say “oh my gosh” in the most dramatic way. There are even instances when she would ask for the line to be in Tagalog instead. With all that being said, you have to give credit to Andrea for doing a fantastic job in portraying Marga. There is no doubt that this would pave the way for even bigger projects for her.
