Kim Domingo On Why She's Called Asia's Fantasy, Happy To Work With Marian Rivera In 'Super Ma'am' On GMA Telebabad

KIM DOMINGO is introduced in the presscon of “Super Ma’am” as Asia’s Fantasy. We ask her if she’s comfortable with such a big title and she says she doesn’t know how she was proclaimed as Asia’s Fantasy.

“Okay na ko doon sa dating tawag nilang Pantasya ng Bayan,” she says. “Kaya nagulat din ako nang ipakilala nila akong Asia’s Fantasy nang isa-isang ipakilala sa press ang buong cast. Naisip ko, baka dahil doon sa appearance ko sa Thailand for youtube na nag-trending talaga nang husto. May event kasi doon na na-invite ako, called Viralfest. Ang mga dumalo, yung maraming hits sa youtube. Pinagkaguluhan talaga ako at ang dami palang nakapanood sa videos ko that we uploaded before pa. Dahil doon, nagkaroon ako ng offer to do endorsements there. Lahat ng videos ko kasi sa youtube, sobrang dami ng hits na nakukuha.”

We’re sure her haters will bash her for claiming she’s Asia’s Fantasy. “Naku, okay lang, sanay na ako sa kanila. May isang bashers na sabi sa’kin, wala akong utak, walang talent, puro boobs lang. I felt so hurt kasi that basher doesn’t know how hard I work to improve my craft, so sinagot ko siya, pumatol ako, sabi ko, at least, ang boobs ko pa lang, milyon na ang kinita. Napahiya yata, hindi na sumagot.”

She’s happy to be part of “Super Ma’am”. “Unang-una, pambata ito kasi superhero si Ate Marian Rivera, so mapapanood ako ng child viewers. Second, makakasama ko nga si Ate Marian and I’m so honored and flattered na siya raw mismo ang pumili sa akin para mapasama ako rito. Maganda yung role ko as Mabelle, her sister, na later on, magiging si Avenir.”

What happened? Why is there a change in her name? “Mga bata pa kami ni Ate Marian nang mapahiwalay ako sa kanila ng father naming si Al Tantay. Kami ng mother namin, si Dina Bonnevie, natabunan kami sa isang kuweba sa bundok ng lumindol. Namatay ang mama namin and akala nina Ate Marian, namatay na rin ako. Ako naman, akala ko, pinabayaan na niya ako kaya galit ako sa kanya. Inampon ako ni Jackielou Blanco, ang reyna ng mythical creatures called Tamawo, at bine-brainwash niya ako laban sa mga tao. Pinag-aral pa ako sa India para matuto ako ng dark arts. Later on, magiging magkalaban kami ni Ate Marian, without us knowing na magkapatid pala kami.”

So how is it working with Marian? “Okay na okay siya. First day pa lang namin, naging comfortable agad ako sa kanya kasi she’s very sweet, thoughtful. I’m looking forward to being closer to her in the days to come kapag dumalas na ang pagsasama namin sa taping. Sana makabuo talaga kami ng isang magandang friendship sa show na ito.”

For her role, she trained in mixed martial arts. “Marami kasi akong action scenes na gagawin. And I’m glad di ko kailangang maghubad dito. Ang goal ko kasi talaga is to eventually makakawala ako sa aking sexy image at mas makilala bilang mahusay na actress. Si Tita Jaclyn Jose ang peg ko.
Nakasama ko siya sa last show ko, ‘D’Originals’, at sinabi niyang nag-umpisa rin siya sa sexy roles. Pero nakatawid siya at, ngayon, respected actress na siyang nananalo ng acting awards hindi lang dito kundi pati sa abroad.”

This year is turning out to be a good one for her. “‘Super Ma’am’ is my third regular show after ‘Juan Happy Love Story’ and ‘D’Originals’. Nakagawa pa ko ng movie, ‘Mang Kepweng’, and I’m doing another one. Kasama rin ako sa ‘Barbie, Wonder Beki’ ni Paolo Ballesteros.”

“Super Ma’am” will be shown starting tonight right after “24 Oras” around 8 PM, so kid viewers who are sure to love its story about a superhero teacher will still be very much awake to watch it. “Alyas Robin Hood” starring Dingdong Dantes will follow it, and after that, “My Korean Jagiya” with Heart Evangelista will round up GMA Telebabad’s programming from Monday to Friday night primetime.
