Bianca Manalo stands by her Carol role in ‘The Broken Marriage Vow’
Kapamilya actress Bianca Manalo shared her thoughts on cheating issues that are happening in a relationship.
Bianca is part of the much-talked-about Kapamilya series now, The Broken Marriage Vow that is featuring Jodi Sta, Maria, Zanjoe Marudo, and Sue Ramirez. The former beauty queen is playing the character of Carol, one of the friends of Jodi’s character.
In Philippine culture and in the nature of Filipino viewers, cheating partners are always the antagonists. Viewers of the series about an extramarital affair are condoning the one who cheated and the other woman or the mistress.
The Filipino audience can be quite intense at times but Sue who is playing the character of the mistress of Zanjoe’s character, said in a previous interview that she has prepared herself for the bashings that she might because of her role.
On the other hand, based on the article in The Philippine Star, Bianca Manalo played a different tune in the narrative about cheating in a relationship. She shared that just like her character Carol, she would not tell her friend about his or her cheating partner.
“‘Di ko sasabihin. Alam ko babae din ako na dapat isipin ko kung paano kung mangyari din sa akin ‘yun. Pero ang akin, eh paano kung maaayos pa nila mag-asawa, pero sinumbong mo na?” the former beauty queen said.
She said that this is how her character is because Carol does not want to cause pain to her friend. “I believe, that’s not your story to tell. Malay mo maayos nila mag-asawa. ‘Yun ang paniniwala ni Carol, medyo mahirap ang character ko,” Bianca said.
She acknowledges that men can commit mistake but they should not be easily condemned. “Mga lalaki, nagkakamali. Bigyan natin sila ng allowance for mistakes,” Bianca Manalo said.
Meanwhile, the actress said that she really prepared well for her character in the new Kapamilya series. She created a story background for Carol and she rehearsed her facial expressions in front of the mirror. Bianca also watched the original British series and the South Korean adaptation of this.
