Kris Aquino at the Los Angeles premiere of "Crazy Rich Asians" in August. She revealed Wednesday that she's looking to audition for a new US series.

She said that she would only return to television if the show would not be too demanding of her time, considering that she's busy with her online projects and her family. 

But Kris Aquino may just find herself freeing up her schedule a bit if she does get a chance to appear in a US series she refused to name in an intriguing Instagram post Wednesday. 

She revealed that her American agent told her that she had been asked to audition for a recurring character in a "multi-ethnicity production," which she also described as a "unique series." 

Unfortunately, she missed the deadline for the script reading but she added that she's currently inquiring if the role is still open. 

Nevertheless, just the fact that she was considered left Aquino feeling "surreal," she explained. 

"Just to be asked to do an audition to be a recurring character for a girl who hasn’t been on Philippine TV for more than two years and who binge watches US series as her favorite form of relaxation is SURREAL," she wrote. 

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

Whatever later may bring, please allow me to be grateful for yesterday & last night. My American agent sent me the script for a multi ethnicity production BUT this time for a unique type of series (i’ll know later if the role is still open because i didn’t see the email asking for me to submit my script reading by October 29). Just to be asked to do an audition to be a recurring character for a girl who hasn’t been on Philippine TV for more than 2 years & who binge watches US series as her favorite form of relaxation is SURREAL. In a world no longer required to be patient, 2 big Filipino conglomerates made me feel I WAS WORTH THE WAIT. I am privileged to work with people who treat me as their own, because they value me as FAMILY. Please don’t mistake this for “hugot sa love life” - it’s only ironic YET heartwarming that my brand partnerships are proving to me there are unexpected things and people meant for me because they are ready and excited for a long term consistent & committed RELATIONSHIP. it’s how multifaceted my life is- i did back to back shoots, it fascinated me that i wore a golden Carolina Herrera lace creation at 5 PM & by 9 PM i was wearing a dress i had an actual say in choice of colors (obviously because of the predominance of pink) and the silhouette (i love this semi cowl neckline plus i insisted on the midi length); it’s the realization of a wish that dresses made for me by my favorite Filipino designers & some inspired by my all black pre-shoot “capsule” wardrobe are now the inspiration for pieces available for all of you at great value for money price points this Christmas season. May i just THANK ALL OF YOU AGAIN? None of these opportunities would be here for me NOW had it not been for your unwavering support and for being my prayer warriors. ... i am super GRATEFUL to have you traveling this journey with my sons & me... thank you for the inspiration to say w/ no regrets, THANK YOU, NEXT.
