Carla Abellana is simply contented to be a Kapuso actress, and she’s not exactly after Marian Rivera’s Kapuso primetime queen.
Some said that because Marian is now married to Dingdong Dantes, she will be taking a break from showbiz, and it may not be right to call her the primetime’s queen anymore.
Carla doesn’t want to replace Marian’s spot because the pressure is too much. The expectations are high as well. She’s happy where she is now, and she’s not after the title anyway.
She entered showbiz to work and earn money, and not to go after one’s title. She doesn’t even know how to earn such titles, and who has the right to baptize one with a title such as primetime queen.
For Carla, it’s simply okay that she has projects and she earns from them. Besides, Carla thinks that Marian will not lie low from showbiz anyway because of all the projects lined up for her.
She was never envious of Marian despite the primetime queen having projects left and right. Carla said she also thinks about the pressure Marian is under. It could not be easy to get where Marian is now.
Although one can easily get jealous of where Marian is, it is also not easy to get there. It was a long and rough climb to the top, Carla believes.
Carla said success is subjective, and people go through a lot of things to be able to achieve the kind of success they want.
Carla has a new contract with the Kapuso network, where she is assigned to do one teleserye a year and she will also have a hosting job in the News and Public Affairs department of the network.
After three years, Carla is hopeful that she will be able to build her own dream house. Right now, she lives with her mother in the house she bought for her.
In three years, hopefully, it will be her own already, the actress said.
