MANILA, Philippines – After playing the lead role in defunct sexy soap “Sabel,” Jessy Mendiola said she is preparing for steamy scenes in a new show under the “Precious Hearts Romances” series.
In an interview with ABS-CBNnews.com after signing for a two-film contract under Star Cinema on Thursday, Mendiola said she has been attending workshops with her new leading man, Matteo Guidicelli.
“Well sabi ko naman, it comes with age. I think naman na magtu-twenty na ako, I think it’s time naman to try something new at hindi naman ibig sabihin na kapag PHR ay sobrang daring na, it’s about romance. So ayun, gusto lang i-try na mag-PHR naman. Kasi ‘yung ‘Sabel’ na-try ko na medyo pa-sexy din, it’s an awakening for a woman. Sa ‘Budoy’ very sweet ako, so ngayon medyo gusto kong magpa-bonggang wow! Kaya pala,” she said.
“Pinaghahandaan talaga niya (Guidicelli) ‘yan mabuti, kasi ang tan na niya ngayon at ang payat na niya. Kasi ang role niya dapat ganoon ang itsura niya. Masaya naman kasi hindi ko pa nakaka-work si Matteo. I think it’s refreshing na ibang leading man naman ang katrabaho ko,” she added.
Aside from preparing for her newest series, Mendiola is also busy finishing the film “The Reunion” under Star Cinema.
“Sana po panoorin niyo ang ‘The Reunion’ malapit na po. Abangan niyo kung ano ang role ko, sobrang magugulat kayo doon,” she said.
