Kim Molina Talks About Working on Till I Met You
We know that you're all excited to watch Till I Met You, James Reid and Nadine Lustre's second primetime TV show, this Monday. No worries because we totally understand. But here's something to make you more excited about the show.
During our shoot with Kim Molina, the actress who plays Kelly on the show gladly shared some inside information with us about what it's like to work with Nadine, JC Santos, and Director Antoinette Jadaone. Can't contain your feelings anymore? Scroll down now!
On working with Nadine: It's my first time to work with her. Yung role ko dito best friend nya and, actually, magaan lang syang ka-work. Di naman kasi kami magkalayo ng age and we have mutual friends... This is a different side of James and Nadine because this time, sobrang detailed ni Direk with Nadine because she wants to show her different side compared to OTWOL's Leah."
On working with Direk Tonet: "This is also my first time working with Direk Tonet, but I'm already friends with her. Direk Tonet would visit the set of #WalangForever, which was directed by her boyfriend Direk Dan (Villegas), during production. I really wanted to work with her, so ito na. Masayang katrabaho si Direk Tonet, but I'd say that she's stricter by 5% compared to Direk Dan. Pareho lang sila halos because they're a power couple at masarap silang kasama.
"My favorite part of working with her, since she's a theater fan also, kapag may script and reading, she'd tell us after, "Alam mo na." Kapag sinabi nya na yun, ibig sabihin, maga-adlib ka na. She's not going to say cut. Nakaka-pressure kasi careful ka dapat sa lahat ng sasabihin mo."
On why she's happy to work with JC on the show also: "It's exciting kasi there's Nadine and James and JC. He's also a thespian, and I have worked with him before sa Kung Paano Ako Naging Leading Lady. My role had this relationship with JC's role. We're two thespians and two mainstream actors in one show."
You can catch Kim as Kelly on Till I Met You starting August 29 on ABS-CBN. Her movie, Camp Sawi, is also showing in cinemas nationwide.

I've been investing in arts, photography, and writing. I've also got back to reading the other day and I finished reading this amazing book entitled 300 Things I Hope by Iain S. Thomas. It is all about the things the author hopes his readers to do in all aspects of life. So, I decided to make a version of it with all of the things I'm hoping for.
I hope I get to see my friends be successful in life. I hope to make a big mural someday. I hope to be a well-known artist like the artists I look up to. I hope to marry the person I am in love with today. I hope to be a little kinder to myself. I hope to see happiness even in the smallest things. I hope to travel the world. I hope to be a good mother and a wife to my future family. I hope to have my artworks displayed in a gallery or an exhibit. I hope to learn more about creative writing. I hope I won't learn how to get tired and give up my passion. I hope I won't get too hard on myself whenever I don't get the results I've been wanting to see in my works. I hope to love myself more even on the days I hate it the most. I hope to lead and empower women; to be their voice and for them to believe in themselves that they can be the woman they look up to. And when I've reached my limit of these things, I hope I won't get tired of reminding myself that my emotions don't make me weak, hence, makes me stronger. These are some of the things I always hope for. What about you? What are you hoping for?
I started fixing myself this quarantine. I mean, I started trying makeup products. As a teen, I'm on my phone almost every hour of the day, scroll on my social media accounts, especially Instagram, and also Pinterest where you get to see nice and pleasing photography by bunch of amazing and beautiful people from different parts of the world. So I started taking my own as well. I did not know that taking your own photo and try to get an Instagramable one is sooooooooo hard, it's exhausting. I do not have alot of space in my room, and I would definitely not do it outside our house because of Corona Virus, and I don't want to be seen by our neighbors HAHA so I have no choice but to make tiis inside my room.
Out of atleast 25 shots, only 2 are a nice picture. While I'm all sweaty and tired, I am proud of what I could do beyond my comfort zone. And this definitely built my self confidence, (and I secret love the compliments I received from both people I know and don't know) It's not my first time visiting in here, Candy! But I'm new to writing my thoughts and experiences, so bare with me HAHA.
Until next time!
First. Pixie dust and paper cuts – these are the first things Wendy knew about Peter Pan. Aurora first met Prince Philip when she was sixteen. Learning how to ride a bike was also a first while I was growing up, but you are probably the first of too many. The first collection of dust and stars; maybe Luna will try to ask, who was your first? I might answer and tell her that it was you.
The first of too many stars in the sky. You are the first of too many fallen leaves during fall – and you will be the most anticipated snowflake as winter comes. A dark path that you can’t see without any light, hence, you were once the moon and there are the stars that shine so bright at night. Are we too early? Or we just really want to be ahead of time? Even in a glimpse, I would like to see the two of us connect as if we can reach the sky. There are other parts of the heavens you have never saw and other oceans you haven’t laid your feet onto – but the constellations will always wait for you. Close your eyes, love, close your eyes. Start counting backward: 5, 4, 3, 2, 1. Count backward until you see the twinkling lights that will guide you to the right path. To the right satellite; to the right person. A first.
There are many firsts – first love, first heartbreak, first sport you played, the first thing you do in the morning, the first thing you remember about the person in front of you. There are a lot. It’s actually up to us how we will consider something as a first. So, Primo, you are already a first of too many.
