Actress Janice de Belen assured viewers of “La Vida Lena” that there will be plenty of campy scenes in the returning TV series.
“Madami kayong makikitang campy scenes dito,” she said during the online press conference for the show last June 16. (You will see a lot of campy scenes here.)
The actress shared that she had a great time doing the series and enjoyed every minute of it. She also revealed that every scene had to be rehearsed to see if it is effective.
“Even while we were rehearsing we were playing with the lines to see what works kasi siyempre, may ano din ‘yan, eh, may campy na nakakaumay, may campy na OA (of course, there’s campy that can be excessive, there’s campy that’s overacting),” she said. “So we had to rehearse the lines.”
De Belen also spoke about how their directors had to slow them down at times because she and her costars were having so much fine executing their scenes.
“Nakakaaliw siya, eh. Ang feeling ko ay ‘yon din ang gusto ng mga tao, ‘yung ganoong scenes,” she said. (It’s so much fun. I feel that this is what the viewers want, these kinds of scenes.)
De Belen wouldn’t be surprised anymore too if netizens would later make memes out of their campy scenes.
“And kung ready na bang maging memes, oo naman (And if we’re ready to be memes, yes, of course),” she said. “Meme all the way. Meme all the way, meme all you want.”
In the series, de Belen plays Ramona Joaquin who will help Erich Gonzales’ Magda character exact revenge on her tormentors.
“La Vida Lena,” which started airing in November last year, will have its continuation starting June 28, 10:00 p.m. at the Kapamilya Channel, Kapamilya Online Live, A2Z Channel 11, TV5, iWantTFC and TFC. JB
