Viewers seemed to see actress Erich Gonzales as a real-life antagonist due to her role in the primetime series “Two Wives” as death threats flooded her social media account.
Known as Janine in the series, Erich said that her character in “Two Wives” brought changes in her life as people began sending hate messages and death threats on her Instagram account.
“Dumating na sa punto na ‘yong mga manonood, sobra silang affected sa impact ni Janine sa buhay nila. Siguro maraming na-Janine sa real life, maraming nakaka-relate. Dumating ako sa point na ‘yong Instagram ko ngayon ay naka-private na kasi nakaka-receive ako ng death threats. Minumura ako. Hindi na si Janine ang tinatawag nila kung hindi si Erich na,” she shared during the thanksgiving press conference of her series with Jason Abalos and Kaye Abad on Wednesday, Feb. 25.
Erich admitted that she was disturbed by how the viewers reacted to her character especially since it was her first time to do a “bida-kontrabida” role.
She added that “Two Wives” fans should understand that she herself didn’t like Janine’s words and actions. But since it was her responsibility to give life to Janine’s character as an avenging wife, she had to give her all to make it as realistic as possible.
“Masasabi ko napaka-challenging ng role para sa akin. Ang dami niyang hugot sa buhay, ang dami niyang angst. Kasi noong una ay kimi lang siya, tahimik tapos biglang sumabog at naging palaban. Mahirap gawin,” Erich said.
Nevertheless, Erich said that she is happy that viewers appreciate her performance in the soap which is now down to its last three weeks.
“Two Wives” airs weeknights after “Forevermore” on Primetime Bida.
