Though she has been in the industry for years and has done several projects already, Kira Balinger is still not ready to take everything to the next level.
"I’m only 17, I’m (still) a minor. Hindi pwede 'yung mga daring scenes," the young actress stressed in an interview with PEP.ph.
"I need to be careful with the roles that I choose, that include those kinds of scenes. 'Di po talaga pwede," she added.
Kira also likes to maintain her good reputation.
"I don’t want to be remembered for doing those daring roles. I just want to be remembered as a good actress," she explained.
After her "Ipaglaban Mo" stint last month with Alex Medina, Neil Coleta, and Lito Pimentel, the "ASAP" BFF5 member admitted that she wants to work with Donny Pangilinan and rumored BF Ryle Santiago in her next projects.
"I’m open to work with anyone they (management) think I could work with. I will try my best to make it work as much as possible," Kira relayed.
She then explained why she wants to work with those two young actors.
"Si Ryle, siya 'yung pinaka-close ko and may tiwala naman ako sa kanya. Super respectful niya and I’ve seen how he acts as well, nangungusap ang kayang mga mata. I want to learn how to do that and feel ko madami akong matututunan sa kanya.
On Donny, Kira said, "May ginawa po kaming digital (project) and mabait din po siya."
Moreover, Kira is grateful to have never experienced a co-star with (bad) attitude.
"So far, wala naman pong ganyan. If ever there is, I would prefer to respect them na lang. Kasi syempre, they’ve been in the industry longer," Kira said.
"It’s always good to respect them and to learn from them as well. So i-deadma na lang kung maldita sila," she added.
