After consistently ranking first on iWantTFC, "La Vida Lena" is officially concluding this week, and lead star Erich Gonzales couldn't be more grateful for the support the show received.
With her amazing portrayal as Magda/Lena, one would think she didn't have a hard time doing it. But during the show's finale media conference, Erich bared that she also had her fair share of challenges.
"Challenge po siguro kung paano mag-iiba 'yung performance ko dito sa 'La Vida Lena' sa last na project na nagawa ko," she said, referring to her previous project "Blood Sisters."
But as much as she was challenged portraying Lena, she also got to understand where her character is coming from — even finding some similarities and differences between them.
"Like Magdalena, 'yung pagmamahal niya sa mga taong importante sa kanya [parehas kami doon]. Different lang po siguro, I am not revengeful," she said.
Knowing how much hatred Lena had in her heart, Erich said it's something she would leave behind as she bids goodbye to her character.
"Siguro dahil sa lahat ng nangyari sa kanya kumbaga napuno siya ng hatred, kinain siya ng galit at poot [ayokong madala 'yun]. To the point na nakakagawa na siya ng mga bagay na hindi niya naiisip na nakakasakit na pala siya hindi lang sa sarili niya kung 'di sa mga tao sa paligid niya," she added.
