Seeing her for the first time on TV, I really thought that she is the former young actress Aiza Marquez! Therefore when I met her in person during our set visit, I eventually said, "Kamukhang-kamukha mo talaga si Aiza Marquez! Akala ko nga ikaw siya eh o kapatid mo siya!"
Hearing those words from me, Krystal Reyes got curious and said, "Oo nga daw marami ang nagsasabi! Sino siya, gusto kong makita."
Krystal is playing the antagonist Chloe in the afternoon teleserye of GMA-7, "Healing Hearts" joining Kristoffer Martin and Joyce Ching.
Just like Aiza Marquez, Krystal now is a versatile young actress who can play both bida and kontrabida. We saw her playing kind roles in the TV series like "Anna Karenina" and "Tween Hearts." But now, she shift playing kontrabida to her close friend Joyce Ching.
"Para sa'king mas challenging 'ung pagiging kontrabida. Kailangan mong laging galit, laging masungit sa lahat ng mga eksena. May time pa nga na 'ung kilay ko kinapalan ko ng sobra para mas maging matapang," Krystal shared during our interview.
Who do you idolize in terms of pagiging kontrabida?! "Ako si Ms. Angelika (Dela Cruz) na kasama namin sa series na kontrabida din. Pinapanood ko at pinag-aaralan ko siya kung paano magtaray at manampal. Bininigyan niya din ako ng tips and guidelines kung paano maging effective na kontrabida," Krystal further added.
How was your working relationship with the cast? She replied: "Masaya. Sobrang sarap nilang katrabaho. After nga ng sampalan namin ni Joyce, nagtatawanan kami. Nag-sosory pa nga ako sa kanya kase baka napalakas ko 'ung sampal ko sa kanya."
Krystal and Joyce already worked together before in "Anna Karenina" and "Tween Hearts" therefore their friendships were strengthen. Therefore when asked if sino 'ung pinaka-ma-mi-miss mo sa pagtatapos ng Tween Hearts, she promptly said Joyce Ching!
Krystal was really curious about Aiza Marquez who she had a great resemblance with. And during our set visit, I don't have a picture of Aiza. Therefore, I am providing now the photos of Aiza Marquez below:
Now do you agree with me that Krystal Reyes really looks like Aiza Marquez?!
A quick trivia about Aiza Marquez, yes, she was also a product of GMA network. She was a batchmate of Anne Curtis in the hit 90's GMA youth-oriented show "T.G.I.S." She starred in various GMA shows before transferring to ABS-CBN In the early 2000's.
Before concluding our cool set visit in "Healing Hearts," I grabbed my oppurtunity to have photos with Krystal:
Krystal is looking forward to create her own path in showbiz - to have her own name and her own title in the future.
Great meeting and mingling with you Krystal! We really had a fun conversation with you. Keep up the good work and looking forward to your upcoming projects! (TV Series Craze)
