Lovi Poe clarifies network transfer rumors

Is Lovi Poe the next big GMA-7 star to switch alliance from Kapuso to Kapamilya?

Recent reports claim that the award-winning actress is planning to transfer to ABS-CBN next year. And according to Lovi, her contract with GMA-7 is only effective until early 2013.

But the Kapuso star said she’s not yet thinking about her plans after her contract expires.

“I haven’t discussed it with my manager. Hindi ko siya iniisip naman,” she told Yahoo! OMG! Philippines and other members of the press during the pocket interview for GMA-7’s upcoming afternoon drama “Yesterday’s Bride.”

She also said, “That’s my manager’s (decision) na. I still have my contract here. When it comes to that naman, sa manager ko na.”

A new challenge

Perhaps the reason she’s not yet considering her options is because of her new project in her current home network. Lovi is set to star in the afternoon soap opera “Yesterday’s Bride” with Rocco Nacino.

For the 23-year-old actress, her latest role is a challenge as it will give her a break from playing strong and feisty characters like the ones she did in last year’s “Temptation Island” and the primetime soap “Legacy.”

“Surprisingly, playing super goody two-shoes characters, parang mas challenging siya for me because I got used to playing characters na independent, strong women. This time, ibang-iba siya,” she said.

Lovi added: “(The role is) really hard for me kasi nga sanay ako na nagtatarayan. It’s something new for me.”

Changing gears is important for Lovi as she doesn’t want to do the same role over and over again. This is evident in her current projects. In the next three months, she will appear in the movies “Shake, Rattle, and Roll 14,” “Tiktik: The Aswang Chronicles,” and “The Bride and the Lover.” Her independent film “Thy Womb” (directed by Brillante Mendoza, starring Nora Aunor) will also get a national release this November.

“Sa indie kasi, mas pwede kang mag-experiment. And sa mainstream, syempre may limitations pero sometimes it’s nice rin to do something na may limits,” she described the merits of indie and mainstream films.

“Yesterday’s Bride” will premiere this October on GMA-7.
