“Ngayon bawas na akong magpa-sexy kasi gusto ko na makatawid sa dream ko,” she said in a recent interview.

“’Di naman po sa ayaw ko na sa sexy image ko kasi du’n naman po ako nag-start. ’Di naman po sa inaalis ko pero kumbaga para sa sarili ko po eh gusto ko pong makatawid ako sa pagiging actress na talaga.”

But what does wearing sexy clothes have to do with that, we asked.

“Kapag hindi ko kasi siya tinanggal parang ’yun na lang ’yung magiging tingin sa akin na ‘Ay Kim Domingo, pa-sexy, Pantasya ng Bayan.’”

She looks up to experienced actress Jaclyn Jose.

“Nag-start rin naman siya sa pagpapa-sexy pero tingnan niyo naman po nasa industriya pa rin siya at ’yun ’yung gusto kong maging goal ko – kung paano ako tatagal sa industriya,” Kim mused.

New Kim

Kim will divulge a new “version” of herself on action fantasy drama series “Super Ma’am.”

“’Di na po masyadong pa-sexy. Madalas naka pants lang ako, naka-midriff lang kasi siyempre pang bata rin ito eh,” she said. “Basta mas mangingibabaw po ’yung character ko na ’yung palaban, ma-action at magaling.”

For preparations, she took aerial yoga and mixed martial arts training.

What if she gets hurt while doing the stunts, we pointed out.

“Okay lang po sa akin. Part po ng trabaho ’yun at hindi rin naman po maiiwasan na magkasakitan,” she said.

“Actually bago pa lang po kami magsimula sabi ko kay Ate (Marian Rivera) eh hihingi na ako ng pasensiya kasi baka mamaya magkatamaan at ’di maiiwasan,” she maintained.

Kim prefers doing the fight scenes herself.

“Actually pwede naman pong dayain pero minsan kasi may mga instances na gusto ko talaga sinasampal ako para mas ramdam ko na totoo ’yung eksena,” she enthused.

“Nu’ng nakaraan nga nakitikim na ako kay Miss Jackie Lou (Blanco) sa eksena ng sampalan sabi ko ‘Okay lang tita, isampal mo talaga sa akin para ramdam ko na totoo ’yung eksena,’” she recalled with a laugh.

Friendship

Kim is grateful she has already adjusted on the set, divulging she’s now more comfortable working with Marian.

“Very sweet kasi siya so wala ako naging problema. Looking forward ako na mas maging close kami,” she said.

Though they’re not best friends, she hopes to forge a lasting friendship with her.

“Hindi ko pa po pwedeng sabihin na close (kami) kasi baka sabihin po masyado naman po akong assuming pero sana po dumating po tayo sa puntong ganu’n.”

Kim admitted she’s careful in choosing her friends.

“Ngayon kasi parang kaunti lang ’yung true friends ko. Mahirap din kasi makahanap ng totoong kaibigan.”

It’s time

As for Jerald Napoles, who started his career as theater actor then transitioned to indie actor and mainstream actor, “Super Ma’am” is a big step forward.

“Ang drama dito sa umpisa, best-ies kami. Ako ’yung janitor siya ’yung teacher (Marian). Ako ’yung Tamawo (mythogical creature), pero good Tamawo,” he shared.

How does it feel being partnered with Marian?

“Hindi ko talaga masabing leading man kasi ako mismo nahihiya talaga ako. Baka may ma-offend,” he said.

In any case, Jerald is thankful to have his first lead role.

“Hindi ko talaga na-imagine kasi sa mukha kong ’to? Although hinangad ko na magbida sa isang pelikula na masho-showcase ko ’yung talent ko,” the comedian said.

He revealed that he “secured” the approval of Marian’s husband, Dingdong Dantes.

“Sabi ko Dong baka kasi mapalapit sa akin si Marian at Zia baka pagselosan mo ako,” he joked. “Dong medyo ayoko naman ma-intriga, kasal kayo eh. Ako hindi ko na rin maiiwasan kung magkagusto siya sa akin.”

Later admitting no such talk took place, Jerold shared what really happened.

“Inechos ko si Dong. Sabi lang niya, ‘Alagaan mo ang asawa ko brad kasi may tiwala ako sayo, tayo-tayo lang ang magkakamukha.’ May mga paganu’n si Dong.”
