Kim Molina: This lady ‘raks’

“Mahal mo siya, mahal ka niya pero ’pag may pumasok na malandi tapos na eksena…”

“Kasi ’yang mga malalandi parang ipis ’yan, ang sarap tapakan…”

Those were just two of many hugot lines actress Kim Molina shared with fans at the “Camp Sawi” mall tour a few days ago. She was joined by co-stars Bela Padilla, Andi Eigenmann, Arci Muñoz and Yassi Pressman at the event.

“Camp Sawi” is about five bitter, brokenhearted ladies joining the film’s fictional camp to heal.

I was able to interview Kim who told me how her character, Joan, is the craziest of the bunch.

“But she’s different from who I am in real life because I am stronger. Given her situation, I would definitely handle it differently,” she related.

Kim made her mark via the hit musical “Rak Of Aegis,” for which she won Philstage Gawad Buhay’s Best Actress in a Musical award.

“I can’t even put into words how grateful I am with ‘Rak.’ I consider it the biggest break of my career,” she said.

Kim grew up in Saudi Arabia. Her parents, both dentists, are based there. Kim started singing at two and started performing professionally at five.

In 2009, she was chosen to represent the Middle East to the World Championships of the Performing Arts in Los Angeles, California, going on to bag the Senior Grand Champion Vocalist of the World title. Eventually, Veronique del Rosario, Viva Artists Agency boss, personally asked her to join their roster of talents.

I asked the talented thespian what it was like growing up in Saudi Arabia. “It’s school and work there,” she said. “No in-between activities. I can’t go anywhere without my parents. I have no problems with it, though. I believe it made us closer as a family.”

Kim is excited about joining James Reid and Nadine Lustre in a new TV series on ABS-CBN. Her role is the BFF of Nadine’s character.

That’s in the future. For now she wants you to laugh and cry via “Camp Sawi,” which hits theaters on Aug. 24.
