She will play a law student who gets raped and brutally beaten up that she loses her eyesight. Despite her disability, she continues to pursue her law degree and becomes a bar topnotcher who will help oppressed people. For her role, she has to study how actual blind people behave and learn how read the Braille alphabet for the visually challenged.
She’ll also train with actual lawyers to familiarize herself with her role. We’re personally advising her to also watch good TV series about lawyers, notably our personal favorites, “The Good Wife” and “Suits”, and also “Daredevil”, where the hero is also a blind lawyer.
Another Kapuso star to have a challenging project for 2017 is Kris Bernal, who was earlier reported to plan to move to ABS-CBN. Obviously, her plan didn’t prosper and she’s now slated to do the remake of
“Impostora”, first shown by GMA-7 exactly ten years ago starring Sunshine Dizon in dual roles as twins where one is good and the other is evil. Kris is a good actress, as shown in her last soap, “Little Nanay”, and we have no doubt she can tackle the twin roles competently.
