Yam Concepcion is still in cloud nine over the success of her primetime show Halik. The actress plays the role of Jade, one of the most popular characters now on Philippine television.
“Di ko po in-expect na magiging ganito ka successful ‘yung show namin na Halik, which makes it more special and ano siya eh hanggang ngayon hindi ako makapaniwala na talagang kinakagat siya ng marami. I feel very happy and very blessed to be part of the show,” she said in an interview with Cinemanews.
She added, “Kasi nga para na siyang part of history. Sabi nga ng director namin, ‘Naku Yam you should be thankful, ‘yung show natin para na siyang Wildflower.' Hindi pa kami natatapos, nasa kalagitnaan pa lang kami ng show, it's already getting high praises”
According to Yam, she makes sure that she portrays her role as Jade as human as possible. “‘Yung atake ko sa kanya gusto ko very human pa rin siya, makikita niyo pa rin ‘yung flaws. At the same time she's actually pretty funny. Gusto ko mainis sila and at the time gusto ko matawa sila,” she relayed.
Yam admitted that ever since playing the character, she has been bashed online and even snubbed by people in public. “Parang halos lahat ‘yung tingin sa akin haliparot which in real life hindi naman talaga. It’s just the role that I am playing na masyado silang nadadala. [Pero] I am very thankful dahil diyan sa mga bashers first time kong magkakaroon ng award sa Philippine Social Media Awards, best trending actress for Halik. I am very thankful to the Lord for the blessing,” she stated.
When asked if who between the characters of Lino and Ace she will choose in real life, Yam replied, “Siyempre lahat sasabihin Lino di ba kasi siya ‘yung the perfect man and all but sometimes perfect is too boring. For me I’d rather go for the sometimes the exciting road, which is si Ace. I’d probably go with Ace kapag one time big time lang pero long term si Lino” Yam said.
