MANILA – Kim Chiu could not hold her tears on Wednesday as she broke her silence against allegations that she “bought” an acting award she received last Sunday for her role in the recently concluded primetime series “Ikaw Lamang.” She will just do her best to prove that she deserves the award and will use the bashing as her inspiration to hone her craft.
The “Past Tense” actress took home the Best Drama Actress trophy at the 2014 PMPC Star Awards for Television, beating Maricel Soriano, Lovi Poe and fellow Kapamilya stars Bea Alonzo, Angel Locsin, Dawn Zulueta, and Maja Salvador.
Turning emotional, Chiu continued: “Ang social media ngayon, sobra nang… Ayan tuloy, naiiyak na ako. Siyempre sa tagal ko dito sa showbiz, masakit din pagsalitaan ka sa gano’n.”
“Sa walo kong teleserye, ngayon lang ako nakatanggap ng recognition na matatawag ko na akin at best actress ako. Siyempre pangarap ko ‘yon na magkaroon.”
Chiu rose to fame in 2006 when she joined the first-ever teen edition of “Pinoy Big Brother,” which she won. She bagged lead roles in several ABS-CBN series and has since starred in 10 films.
Her latest movie, “Past Tense” co-starring Xian Lim and Ai Ai delas Alas, was released in cinemas on Wednesday.
