AYANNA Misola was introduced in a small role in “Pornstar 2: Pangalawang Putok” as one the new sexpots being trained by older stars led by Alma Moreno. Then she played a bigger role in “Siklo” as the wife of lead actor Vince Rillon. Now, she’s being launched as a solo star in Vivamax’ “Kinsenas Katapusan”, a sexy psycho-thriller drama directed by GB Sampedro that starts streaming on February 4.
“Sobrang nagulat ako when Vivamax told me that I’d be playing the lead role in ‘Kinsenas Katapusan’,” she says. “Kasi bago pa lang ako, two movies pa lang ang nagawa ko. Tapos, sa’kin naka-focus ang story, so I was afraid baka hindi ko pa kaya. But they assured me tutulungan nila ako so sabi ko, sige, let’s do it.”
She plays a very challenging role as Beth, a nymphet who meets Joko Diaz online. They become friends and soon meet in person and become lovers. It turns out that Joko is married to Jamilla Obispo and is actually the father of one of her classmates. Beth turns out to have a deep dark secret that will lead to some serious and deadly complications.
“I really had to prepare hard for my role kasi sobrang bigat ng mga eksena ko,” she says. “And the character of Beth as a scheming temptress is so far from me in real life. Direk GB and Kuya Joko Diaz helped me a lot. Hindi ko magagawa nang nag-iisa ang role ko at ginabayan nila talaga ako all the way. Si Kuya Joko, kapag alam niyang kinakabahan ako, nagjo-joke siya para ma-relax ako, lalo sa bed scenes namin.”
Joko was specially helpful in their dramatic scenes together. “He was the one who taught me how to use my eyes. Ang ganda raw ng mga mata ko, so dapat ilabas ko doon ang emotions ko. Tinuruan niya ako ng killer look niya and I think magagamit ko ‘yun sa future projects na gagawin ko.”
Her fans in social media say that she is now one of Vivamax’ Bagong Pantasya ng Bayan. How does she feel about it?
“I really want to thank them. Very inspiring ang feedback nila sa akin at sana magawa ko lahat ng trabaho ko nang tama, para sa kanila.”
What was she doing before Vivamax discovered her? “I was a student before ‘Pornstar 2’ and in ‘Siklo’. But natigil ako kasi nga sunud-sunod ang projects na ibinibigay sa akin. Tapos sobrang hirap pa ng role ko rito sa ‘Kinsenas Katapusan’. Very challenging talaga for me kasi ang bigat ng emotions na pinagdaanan ko.”
In the story, she’s a student who falls in love with an older man. Does she think this can happen to her in real life?
“Why not? Ang totoo, I really love older guys kasi ang feeling ko, mas seryoso at responsible sila sa isang relationship.”
