“Hot Tita ni Camila (Maja Salvador),” Ariella Arida said when asked to describe her character, Tatiana, in the top-trending series The Killer Bride. The said teleserye may be the first item in Ariella’s acting resume but netizens believe her skills surpass that of a newbie’s.
The beauty queen turned actress is overwhelmed with the praises she receives from The Killer Bride’s avid viewers. One of her most remarkable scenes, so far is when her character, Tatiana, did a strange ritual of rubbing pieces of crystals on her body to please the moon and heal her infertility.
While there are good words about her portrayal of Tatiana’s multifaceted persona, Ariella admits she also hears negative comments at times. The good thing is she knows how to handle constructive criticisms by using them as the drive to challenge and improve herself even more.
Her co-stars Maja Salvador and Janella Salvador also help her learn more about the craft she has just recently ventured on. Ariella said that she picks up techniques from Maja even with just watching her. “Ang sarap niya panoorin,” Ariella shared referring to Maja.
But, when asked about Tatiana’s edge over Camila and Emma, Ariella said that her character is both feisty and crazy. To test her kontrabida skills even more, Ariella gamely reenacted the lines originally delivered by Kapamilya iconic kontrabidas Emilia Torillo of Wildflower and Margaret Mondragon of Kadenang Ginto portrayed by Aiko Melendez and Andrea Brillantes, respectively.
