JUST A THOUGHT: “We become what we think about.” – Earl Nightingale
OK BY KC: It’s okay, so very okay for KC Concepcion to play strong-willed character roles in an attempt to break away from the looming shadow of her mother, Sharon Cuneta.
KC, who plays another offbeat role as a female gangster in filmfest entry “Boy Golden,” says she welcomes this new chapter in her acting career. It has allowed her to be seen in an entirely new, different light.
“I’m happy to have found my niche in this industry,” the actress said during a media conference for “Boy Golden,” starring Laguna Gov. ER Ejercito in the title role.
KC added that playing liberated woman roles has offered her greater freedom.
“I like adventure, experimenting. Through my roles, I want to show the other side of people,” she said.
KC earlier stripped in a liquor calendar and played a villainous character in teleserye “Huwag Ka Lang Mawawala.” Her effective portrayal of an embittered woman fetched her role of Boy Golden’s partner in crime in this film set in Manila’s 1960s.
Gov. ER gets to engage KC in at least three kissing scenes, which the actress said she didn’t mind. Ok lang.
