"Pinoy Big Brother Otso" alum Kaori Oinuma has landed her first television series, Dreamscape's "Parasite Island."
The "PBB Otso" sweetheart was present during the show's press conference last September 9, where she expressed her gratitude over her latest achievement.
"Siyempre po bilang ito 'yung first time ko sa pag-acting, sobrang thankful po ako sa Dreamscape at sa ABS-CBN kasi nabigyan po ako ng opportunity na matupad ko 'yung pangarap ko," she said.
Kaori plays the character of Lia in the series, who is Paulo Angeles' character’s love interest.
And since this will mark their first time working together, Kaori admitted that she felt kind of nervous around Paulo at first.
"Noong unang kita ko sa kanya, hindi ko alam kung paano ako mag-a-approach. So [sabi ko,] 'Hello po, hello po.'"
"Pero habang tumatagal, habang kasama ko siya, kapag may scene po, okay po. Naga-guide niya rin po ako, nagpapatulong rin po ako para mas gumaling din ang pag-arte ko," she shared.
Also part of the series are Rafael Rosell, Ria Atayde, Desiree del Valle, Bernard Palanca, Bianca Manalo, and Michael Flores.
It will be aired every Sundays, after "Rated K."
Congratulations and keep shining, Kaori!
Kaori was part of the "PBB Otso's" Big 8, where she was hailed as the 8th Big Placer.
