After getting the boot from ABS-CBN reality show Pinoy Fear Factor (PFF), comedienne Janna Dominguez is now facing a more daunting but less dangerous challenge as a regular cast member of the new television series “Eva Fonda.”

Dominguez said she will play the role of the antagonist Paris opposite Eva Fonda's Cristine Reyes.

"I'm really happy because this is my first real acting job because I only used to do cameo roles. They really focused on the cast so that the acting would come out naturally," she said.
Dominguez said she had to audition for the role and won the part even before she went to Argentina for the Pinoy Fear Factor shoot. She said the role of Paris challenged her to do more than just comedy and drama but also some fight scenes.

"It's really very different because it's a reflection of real life. I was really challenged by the fight scene," she said.

Dominguez said bagging a plum part in Eva Fonda could give her the exposure and publicity she needs to stay in showbiz.

“Pangarap ko kasi talaga ito noon pa yung mga kapasok ako sa showbiz. Dati nga po lahat talaga sinalihan ko nag-audition ako yung SCQ 1, SCQ 2 yung PBB kasi gusto ko talaga sa showbiz,”  the comedienne said.

Dominguez is a former guest co-host of ABS-CBN’s popular noontime show “Wowowee.” She is also working as a stand-up comedienne at Punchline Comedy Bar.
