NATHALIE Hart was last seen with John Arcilla in Vivamax “Reroute”. She’s now back on the big screen in “Kunwari… Mahal Kita” which will be shown in theaters nationwide starting this March 15. So what is her role in the movie?

“I play Cindy Soriano, the career-oriented wife of Joseph Marco as Greg,” she says. “She’s a workaholic, driven career woman and she’s disappointed with her husband who’s an artist at nasa bahay lang. I’m a go-getter, the type na nakukuha ang anumang gustuhin niya. And since she’s disgruntled with her husband, gusto na niyang ipa-annul ang marriage nila.”

Joseph gets so depressed because of her decision and leaves for a beach resort in the province to cool off. There, he meets Ryza Cenon as Heidi and they become close to each other. When Nathalie decides to follow him, she gets jealous to see Joseph so sweet to Ryza and her feelings for him are rekindled.

“So ayun, narealize ko as Cindy na may nararamdaman pa pala ako for my husband,” adds Nathalie. “Nagdadrama lang pala ako at dapat pala, nag-usap na lang muna kami kaysa makipaghiwalay agad ako. Something like that happened to me before, so inalala ko lang ‘yung feelings ko when the same thing happened to me. So dapat, ‘wag ka agad sumuko.”

How is it working with her co-stars and their director, Roderick Lindayag? “Joseph is fun to work with. Nagkatrabaho na kami before sa Regal in ‘The Rebound Girl’. I played his former girlfriend. Si Ryza rin, magaan katrabaho kasi she’s so simple. She doesn’t act like an artista kundi parang mga normal na tao lang kami sa set. Si Direk Roderick, nakatrabaho ko na rin before and he is so nice, not a terror director so enjoy lang kami sa set.”

“Kunwari… Mahal Kita” is opening this Wednesday, March 15 and the premiere night is in SM The Block North Edsa this Tuesday night.

What is her next project?

“I signed up for a three-movie contract with Viva, but I’ve been busy lately because of my business. Pabalik-balik ako sa Australia. My manager nga, Leo Dominguez, is asking me kung gusto ko pang mag-artista and I said yes, I’m ready to accept another project. Okay lang sa akin kahit sexy ang project basta maganda and I have a good role. Also, I’d be more active now sa social media, kasi I haven’t been posting anything lately. I also had a guesting in ‘Family Feud’.”

Last year, she announced her official engagement with her foreigner fiance, Brad Robert. Are they planning to face the altar anytime soon?

“Not yet. Hindi naman kami nagmamadali. We are taking our time. Right now, we are both so busy. So no need to rush.”

How is her daughter, Penelope? “Oh she’s big na. She is now going to school. So while she’s in school, I go to the gym and attend to my business, Gayatree Organics, which will soon have a rebranding with us coming out with new products.”
