Rabiya Mateo just confirmed that she is now a full pledged Kapuso. She signed with GMA Network and you must be wondering , why she chose to be here. Well, we got to talk to her yesterday and yes, she's raring to tell you that she's already appearing in shows, particularly Book 2 of "Agimat ng Agila" together with almost twin vixen actress Sanya Lopez.
Rabiya shared during the presscon a few things she learned during her shoots. She had a really different perspective in reading and learning scripts. She wants to also work with Bea Alonzo in the future, which would be good since she's also in the same network now. She told us that they started off meeting Ms. Anette Gozon during a dinner and talked about her being in GMA. She had to be careful since back then she was still in a contract with Miss Universe Philippines. She also shared how she admires Alden Richards especially in the movie Hello, Love, Goodbye and maybe Dingdong Dantes if the opportunity arrives. She also shares, they promised her that she will be honed to be an actress, they understood that she's new to the industry... it was something she was looking forward to says the sassy Ilongga.
Currently, she's very happy with her change of career. She learned to also filter out things on social media, to also be a little thick skinned because at the end of the day, she wants to only listen to people that matters most.
Here's the rest of our interview with her:
Can't wait to see how she's going to appear in GMA shows from hereon, they've got a lot of plans for her and maybe, just maybe, GMA will make her dream of working with GMA's prized leading men come true. She's a pro at answering questions, I love her already!
