Lovi Poe Willing To Support Sister If Sen. Grace Poe Will Run For President

LOVI POE says she's not sure about the plans of her sister, Sen. Grace Poe, in the next elections. "But whatever her decision might be, I will definitely support her," she says. "I'm just one call away para tulungan siya."

Would she tell Grace to run for president? "Naku, I'm not in a position to give her any advice about politics. Ano ba malay ko diyan? Basta I will trust her judgment."

Lovi played someone who takes revenge on her tormentors in "Akin Pa Rin ang Bukas". She now plays another avenger in "Beautiful Strangers" that will replace "Let the Love Begin" on August 10.
"Pero mas matindi ang pinagdaanan ng character ko rito sa 'Beautiful Strangers' kaya mas matindi rin ang revenge angle dito," she adds.

Lovi plays Joyce, an aspiring interior designer helping her mom (Lovely Rivero), her dad (Pen Medina) and brother (Renz Valerio). She's also happy with her boyfriend (Rocco Nacino) who just got her preggy. But her life is shattered when a rich realtor, Christopher de Leon, rapes her, causing her to lose the baby in her womb.

She falls down the stairs while trying to escape from Christopher, who thinks he has killed her so he asks his henchman, Kier Legaspi, to get rid of the body. Kier burns her body, but it turns out Lovi is not really dead but only gets disfigured because of the fire. When she regains her consciousness, she has lost her sanity and becomes a taong graza wondering in the streets.

Her only friend is a gay taong graza, Shakira, played by theatre actor Nar Cabico who was a hit as the head of the villains Kayumanggilas in the musical 'Kung Paano Ako Naging Leading Lady'. She will then meet a doctor, Heart Evangelista, who takes pity on her and nurses her back to health. The twist in the story is that Heart is actually the daughter of the man who raped her and Heart has no knowledge of her dad's villainy.
Aside from "Beautiful Strangers", Lovi is also busy shooting "Lakambini", the filmbio of Gregoria de Jesus or Ka Oriang. In both projects, her real life BF Rocco Nacino is also in the cast. Someone quipped that they seem like a package deal.

"Hindi naman. Nagkataon lang. In 'Beautiful Strangers', he's actually paired with Heart kasi magiging sila sa story at ako naman, with Benjamin Alves. In 'Lakambini', he'll play Andres Bonifacio and he'll die, so I'll be paired naman with Paulo Avelino who plays Julio Nakpil, Ka Oriang's second husband."
