In an interview with Push.com.ph, de Belen said she feels elated whenever people call her by the name of her roles in the Kapamilya TV series “Budoy” or “Ina Kapatid Anak.”
De Belen said some people even hate her for being an antagonist in the show.
"You do not know how overwhelming it feels... Alam mo, kapag marami nagagalit sa akin, that means tama ginagawa ko. Kakainis 'di ba? Minsan naiinis din ako sa [roles] ko. Pero kapag nakikita mong ganon, that means you're doing a good job. Okay na 'yun sa akin,” she said.
De Belen said her roles in the top-rating primetime series “is a chance to do something that people are not used to seeing you do.”
According to de Belen, she does not think much about gaining a certain status in the entertainment industry when she accepts projects as long as she is happy with them.
"I'm really thankful. ‘Yung mga ganito hindi ko naman pinag-iisipan. When I accept a project, [ang considerations ko lang kung] maganda ba 'yung role, sino mga kasama ko, parang okay naman. Kung may time let's do it. Hindi ko iniisip na maybe I should do this movie [to achieve a certain status], wala akong ganopn basta nage-enjoy lang ako," she said.
Apart from “Ina Kapatid Anak,” de Belen is also part of the showbiz-oriented show “Showbiz Inside Report,” which airs every Saturday on ABS-CBN.
