Claudine Barretto Is Back with a New Teleserye


Byline: WALDEN SADIRI

It was a scorching hot Thursday afternoon, with the temperature ranging from the uncomfortable 80[degrees] to 90[degrees]F. But in Brgy. Maestranza in Intramuros, Manila, everything seemed normal and cool for dramatic actress Claudine Barretto as she prepares for a scene with veteran actress Jaclyn Jose.

It was her second taping day for her upcoming ABS-CBN soap opera entitled "Ikaw Ang Lahat Sa Akin." The said location would be part of her life thrice a week (Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays) until the soap ends.

"This is not the first time that Ive worked in a slum area. I have been in one in "Mula sa Puso," "Sa Dulo ng Walang Hanggan," and "Saan Ka Man Naroroon." I have been through the worst locations. Whenever it rains, the area would flood easily and you cant get out of it anymore. Mas mahirap sa location namin ngayon because ang mga tao they are harder to control unlike those from our locations in Mandaluyong or Fairview," she explained.

In the soap Claudine plays Nea, a good daughter who helps out her mother (Jaclyn Jose) in their carinderia business. She has a younger sister (Bea Alonzo) whom they have not seen for almost a decade in the story. The drama revolves around both her and her moms longing to find her lost sister. Claudines TV character possesses a positive outlook despite being poor. She is perky and tries to make everything light and easy for everybody. Nea is also a prayerful person, always believing that God will always let her find a way out of her problems.

"I havent heard yet of an actor or actress who has reservations working in a slum area. Kapag mahirap ka, doon ka talaga sa lugar ng mahirap. You really have to deal with the things that you dont likecockroaches and rats," she shared. "But I do have one simple request whenever we shoot in places like thisand thats to have my own trailer." She says she feels safer and secure inside one rather than in her own car as fans usually bang on the latter just to get her attention, eventually disturbing her rest.

"Ikaw Ang Lahat Sa Akin" will again pair her with long-time TV love teammate Diether Ocampo. Diet, as he is more popularly known, plays a rich businessman whose girlfriend is a very affluent society woman portrayed by actress Angelica dela Cruz.

"Our on-screen relationship will be more mature since weve worked together for a long time. I think the chemistry will always be the same because we have always enjoyed good rapport. He is also my best friend in and outside showbiz eversince," she described.

Since the public knows of her upcoming wedding to actor Raymart Santiago and Diethers real-life girlfriend Kristine Hermosa, Claudine hopes that their real-life romance wont affect their tandem in "Ikaw Ang Lahat Sa Akin."

Before this new teleserye came about, Claudine was first offered the title role of "Kampanerang Kuba" but she turned it down. "I gave it up because I dont want to do another fantaserye. "Marina" was just a one-time thing for me. It was experimental since hindi namin alam kung magugustuhan ng mga tao ito. It was something I and my director fought for, hoping na magustuhan talaga ng ABS-CBN. Pinagbigyan lang kami ng ABS-CBN because it was just for one season hanggang sa naging dalawa at tatlo. …
