Her portrayal of Carol Manansala may have received mixed reactions from avid viewers, but for sure, fans indeed enjoyed Bianca Manalo’s appearance in Hotspot, wherein she talked about her stint in the well-loved primetime series The Broken Marriage Vow.
Bianca related to host DJ Jhai Ho how happy she is that a lot of people are really hooked with the drama, as attested by how some have been calling her “Carol”, every time they see her outside. At the same time, she’s also been receiving random messages from netizens, expressing how affected they are of certain scenes from the series and thanking her for being a loyal friend to Jodi Sta. Maria’s character Dra. Jill Ilustre.
Bianca then talked about her trending confrontation scene with Jodi, wherein they were both praised for being able to pull off a calm yet intense altercation. When asked if she collaborated with their directors in doing that scene, she related that she’s the type of actress who simply pours out what she feels in a particular scene and just later on asks the feedback of their directors. She also imparted how she would always rehearse her scenes in front of the mirror in order to see how she appears or if she’s doing it right.
According to her, she did everything she could because she didn’t want to be embarrassed, as well as for the management to not regret choosing her to play Carol.
DJ Jhai Ho then asked her to share a few trivia about some of her co-stars. With regards to Zaijian Jaranilla and Sue Ramirez, she mentioned how in disbelief she is that both of them are now already grown-ups since she still sees them as babies. Albeit, she commended them for their impressive portrayals of their respective characters that successfully veered them away from the past roles they used to play.
When it comes to Zanjoe, she revealed how completely immersed he was to his character, making it impossible for them to talk with him sometimes. While for Jodi, she recalled how absolutely in character she was in the earlier days of their lock-in taping as she refused to talk to her or anyone on the set when they shot the remarkable party scene.
Bianca may have done a great job in portraying Carol and greatly enjoyed it, yet she would want to try playing Sue’s character Lexy, a promising young woman who betrayed her parents for the married man she truly loves.
