MANILA (Mabuhay) — Having constantly heard herself being described as sweet and funny, Eula Caballero wonders if people actually mean she is foolish if too gullible.
“Ewan ko kung bakit lahat nagsasabi sa akin nun. (Siguro akala) engot-engot yata ako. Baka pinagtatawanan ako sa likod ko, (saying), ‘Ang boba naman ng babaeng ito,’” she related, seemingly only half-kidding.
Despite her humorous nature, Eula is serious about her showbiz career. More than just taking care of herself physically, she also nourishes her mind by reading books.
“Kasi I realized ang pag-arte inaaral din. Inaaral mo character mo, sinusuri mo, kinikilatis mo to come out with a strong performance. Dapat consistent ka din so it needs a lot of studying,” explained Eula.
Eula is doing exactly this while doing research for her new project, a “Wattpad Presents” episode dubbed “Lady In Disguise.” Here, she will have to transform herself into a man to be able to enroll in an all boys school, hoping to win back her ex-boyfriend played by Brett Jackson.
“Lady in Disguise” is one of the most followed stories written by blue_maiden, with around 1.1 million reads and 17,200 votes on Wattpad.
“Nabasa ko na ‘yung book and talagang challenging siya for me. Pag-modulate pa lang ng boses isang challenge na. Lalo na boses ko pa naman ipit na ipit. Babaeng nakaka-inis ang boses,” Eula said, laughing.
She wants to go beyond her “sweet persona” for her upcoming role.
“Everyone calls me sweet because that’s really who I am. May mga babae na ang lakas ng personality pero ako doon talaga napupunta sa sweet na kahit anong gawin ko na minsan gusto kong magmukhang malakas ang personality ko, mag-mukha akong empowered, hindi talaga kaya. Ewan ko, jologs yata talaga ako,” she lamented.
Eula revealed that she is taking inspiration from the performance of Kapuso actress Kris Bernal in “Coffee Prince.”
Not that she is out to simply replicate Kris’s performance. “My work as an actress is to create my own character, aralin ko, breakdown my character and make sure I do a different approach,” she opined.
Turning 20 on May 23, what’s Eula birthday wish?
“I wish God grants me a solid and beautiful project that will challenge me as an actress. I just want to take my personal growth to a new level,” Eula replied. (MNS)
