BB. PILIPINAS TOURISM 2013 Cindy Miranda has a nude and torrid kissing scene in a indie film titled “Adan”.
“With tongue” as she describes her kissing scene.
Together with Rhen Escano, Cindy plays a lesbian.
“Sobrang excited na ako sa Adan. Hindi ako makapaghintay na mapanood ng mga tao kasi isa iyon sa mga ginawa ko na hindi ko makakalimutan—yung hirap sa set, location pa lang, grabe na.
“Being a lesbian, siyempre, may gusto ka na babae. Nung ginawa ko yung kissing scene namin ni Rhen, akala ko, hindi ko kaya. Kahit sa totoong buhay, never akong naka-kiss ng isang babae, pero dahil propesyonal yung co-star ko, kahit awkwardness, wala akong naramdaman. Ganoon kaganda, ka-fl awless yung eksena.”
Cindy admits she gave it all during the said scene.
“Sabi nila, grabe, may chemistry kami ni Rhen. Kung ten ang pinakamataas na intensity, nasa 11 ang intensity ng kissing scene namin, na matagal, pero hindi ko alam kung ipalalabas lahat.
“Nadala kami sa eksena. Hindi namin inisip na babae yung kahalikan ko. Naisip ko, may mahal ako na tao. Ganoon din kagaling ang kaeksena ko.
“Mahal ko talaga ang pag-arte at kapag mahal mo ang isang bagay, lahat, makakaya mo na gawin.”
She also mention that their role is very challenging, they had to be in their birthday suit.
Cindy also knew before doing the film that the Binibining Pilipinas charities would disapprove of what she did.
“As a beauty queen, alam ko na hindi ito magugustuhan ng Binibining Pilipinas.
“Pero sabi ko nga, noong nag-decide ako na maging aktor, iisipin ko ba yung pagiging beauty queen ko o pagiging aktor ko?
“Kasi nang mag-decide ako na mag-artista, gusto ko na maging magaling.
“Hindi nila maaalala kung sino si Cindy Miranda in real life at yung Cindy Miranda na Bb. Pilipinas.
“Gusto ko makilala nila ako na magaling na aktor.”
JUDY ANN, who is dubbed as ABS-CBN’s Queen of Pinoy Soap Opera, has been with the Kapamilya network since 1992.
She started when she did the teleserye Mara Clara with Gladys Reyes.
During her 27-year stay with ABS-CBN, there were times when Judy Ann was rumored to have a rift with management, or that she planned to transfer to other networks.
The latest was in 2013, while Judy Ann was doing her prime-time series, Huwag Ka Lang Mawawala.
This was because her series, which was originally aired in the second prime-time slot, was transferred to the third slot.
“Parang hindi naman ito yung napag-usapan, pero nirerespeto ko na things change and you can’t really do anything about it.
“Parang sabi ko, ‘Ah, ganong oras, may gising pa naman niyan for sure.’
“Hanggang sa ililipat na ako sa alas-diyes, doon na yung parang ang dating sa akin, ‘Bakit hindi niyo na lang tapusin?’
“Kasi sino pang manonood ng… hinihingan niyo ako ng ratings, anong ratings ang maibibigay ko sa alasdiyes ng gabi? Yun naman yung pinanggagalingan ko.”
Judy Ann then decided to cut the show’s run.
Originally intended to air for 13 weeks, Huwag Ka Lang Mawawala had a 10-week run on ABS-CBN’s prime-time block.
After the show’s run, Judy Ann was vocal in saying that she was open to the possibility of entertaining offers from other networks.
But eventually, she renewed her contract with ABS-CBN.
The same incident also happened in 2007, when it was reported that Judy Ann might be transferring to GMA-7, after doing the GMA Films-produced movie, Ouija.
Talking about her relationship with ABS-CBN, Judy Ann quipped, “Love-hate talaga kami!”
Judy Ann remains loyal to the Kapamilya network because management would always listen to her concerns.
The 41-year-old actress explained, “They’re always a good listener naman, e. Siguro kasi ang lalim na ng relationship ko with them.
“Everytime na may nararamdaman ako or everytime na may sama ako ng loob sa kanila, I’d set up a meeting and actually tell them kung ano yung nangyari. Gusto ko rin kasi marinig kung ano yung sa part nila.
“Parang feeling ko kasi, importanteng maging open ka rin sa mga boss mo, kasi sa dami ninyo, hindi naman nila kayo mai-isa-isa na iparamdam nila sa ‘yo kung naisantabi ka ba.”
At this point in her career, Judy Ann knows that there will be moments where she won’t be prioritized by her mother network, especially with the rise of many up-and-coming stars.
She continued, “Kasi at one point, darating talaga yung puntong maisasantabi ka kasi ang dami na, e. Ang dami na tapos marami ring magagaling.
“Hindi mo naman puwedeng i-compare yung sarili mo sa kanila kasi mas bata sila.
“That’s the time na you also question yourself na, ‘Am I still really worth staying here or hanap na lang ako ng ibang bahay kasi parang hindi naman ako napapansin?’
“Pero you’d always go back na, hindi naman po sa nagmamayabang ako, pero parang wala naman po akong ibinigay na teleserye na hindi nag-re-rate.”
Judy Ann was able to do eight teleseryes in ABS-CBN, which were: Mara Clara (1992-1997), Esperanza (1997-1999), Sa Puso Ko, Iingatan Ka (2001-2003), Krystala (2004-2005), Sa Piling Mo (2006), Ysabella (2007), Habang May Buhay (2010), and Huwag Ka Lang Mawawala (2013).
She was also able to headline her own drama special called Judy Ann Drama Special in 2000, and was part of the youth-oriented series Gimik from 1996 to 1997.
The Kapamilya actress also pointed out that she has a good relationship with the bosses of ABS-CBN, which is why she is able to easily voice out her concerns whenever she needs to.
“I have a good relationship with ABS-CBN, especially with Tita Cory Vidanes, with Ma’am Charo Santos-Concio, with Sir Gabby Lopez, and Direk Lauren Dyogi.
“Siguro kasi, lumaki na ako sa kanila kaya kaya kong sabihin sa kanila kapag malungkot na malungkot na ako, tapos naiinis na ako sa kanila.
“Ayoko na siyang palakihin pa, makikipag-usap na ako and they always reach out naman kapag nakakarating sa kanilang nagtatampo ako.
“After ng usap na ‘yon, okay na. Mas nagkakaroon lang na feeling ko lang, it had to happen. Naniniwala ako sa ganon, e. Things happen not just because trip lang ni Lord, things happen because you have to learn something from it.
“You have to adjust at some point and there’s always a reality na things don’t always go your way and you have to accept that, because if you don’t, malulungkot ka, mawawala ka sa focus mo.
“Change is inevitable, e. If you resist change, maiiwan ka ng trend.
“Ikaw, ngumangawa ka diyan kung bakit naiwan ka, e, kasi ikaw hindi ka nag-adjust.
“So you have to learn to adjust sa career, sa lahat. Basically, hindi lang naman sa pagiging artista, e. Sa kabuuan ng buhay, ang dating sa akin, hindi mundo ang mag-a-adjust sa ‘yo, ikaw ang mag-a-adjust.
“Ikaw ang nakakakita, e. Nakikita ka ba ng mundo? Ikaw ang nakakakita, ikaw ang maghahanap ng posisyon mo. Kung saan ka masaya, e, di doon ka. Kung hindi sila masaya pero masaya ka, e, di stick ka kung saan ka masaya.”
Judy Ann then declared that she is happy with ABS-CBN at present.
She said, “Yeah, oo naman. Parang I’ve learned to accept na kung ano yung posisyon ko na may mga young stars ngayon na nasa kanila yung focus.”
In fact, Judy Ann’s latest project with ABS-CBN is “Starla”.
