MANILA -- Star Magic artist Chienna Filomena is not surprised with the "hate" she is getting among fans of Kathryn Bernardo and Daniel Padilla, as her character in "Got to Believe" continues to get in the way of the lead stars' relationship.
As Amanda in the ABS-CBN series, Filomena plays a rich girl who is after Joaquin (Padilla). Knowing of Joaquin's feelings for Chichay (Bernardo), Amanda tries everything to make her life miserable.
Filomena, who joined the series weeks ago as one of the classmates of the lead characters, is seen in the episode of "Got to Believe" aired Tuesday throwing food at Chichay's face.
The scene, set at the Grand Crillon Ball where Chichay is a waitress and Amanda is one of the debutantes, became a hot topic among viewers of the series on Twitter.
"Amanda" even became a trending topic on that night.
On her Twitter page, Filomena said she is happy that viewers appreciate her performance as the show's villain. "It makes me smile when people appreciate the craft I have. Still there is a lot of room for improvement," she said.
Directed by Cathy Garcia-Molina, "Got to Believe" airs weeknights during ABS-CBN's "Primetime Bida" block.
