MANILA — Beauty queen-turned-actress Lara Quigaman is “overwhelmed” by the response to her portrayal of the cruel “killer groom” in the primetime series “The Killer Bride.”
In the ABS-CBN drama, Quigaman plays Alice, who early on appeared to be a soft-spoken and submissive wife, and who emerged as the archnemesis of the titular character, Camila (Maja Salvador).
The role, which sees Quigaman often switching personalities between ever-pleasant Alice and the scheming “killer groom,” is a career-defining one for the actress, after admittedly being typecast in her past projects.
“Sobra akong thankful sa opportunity. Kasi for the longest time, ang mga role ko mga nanay na namamatayan, nanay na namatay, nanay na laging umiiyak. Lahat naman na-enjoy ko gawin, pero siyempre I wanted to do something different,” she said in an interview on “Tonight With Boy Abunda” that aired Wednesday.
With her performance a hit among viewers of “The Killer Bride,” Quigaman was challenged to channel her character in different scenarious during her guesting on the talk show.
