Sarah Lahbati ready for her kissing scenes with Richard Gutierrez

After "Kokak," Sarah Lahbati is going primetime with "Makapiling Kang Muli," a mature-themed love triangle story with Richard Gutierrez and Carla Abellana. It also means a lot of kissing scenes or even love scenes among the stars.
 
"It's no big deal if I have kissing scenes with Richard. It's part of my job and I'm ready," remarked Sarah. "Our director, Ricky Davao, even reminded me that this is not 'Kokak' anymore and I'll have these scenes."
 
However, the kissing scenes are not the only things that give her the jitters about her primetime series. It's a huge TV project for her so she has to work harder since the story has a lot of drama, twists, and even action.
 
Intimidated


"Talagang exciting and lahat talaga kami pinaghahandaan namin mabuti. Honestly, I was intimidated when I first attended the story conference. Natakot at nagulat ako kasi ang huhusay ng mga kasama namin and I love the story. Ther's a bit of pressure which is good so I will really work hard," explained Sarah.
 
At the moment, Sarah is busy with her acting workshop and horseback riding training for her upcoming soap opera "Makapiling Kang Muli" and hosting "Party Pilipinas" gig every Sunday.
 
As an actress, what she is looking forward to is the teamwork that will be established among the cast and crew in "Makapiling Kang Muli." Team effort for her has been the key to the success of "Kokak."
 
"We all worked hard in 'Kokak.' Minsan nga may eksena na hulas-hulas na kami pero mas inintindi namin yung lines, yung drama kaysa yung looks namin or mga damit namin," she described.

Mad about acting

She added that she doesn't only work and play hard on the set but even at home. Rather than get a good night's rest after a taping day ends, she'd still read and study her script for her next taping day.
 
"Ako, honestly passion ko ang acting. Minsan si Mommy na-weirduhan na sa akin kasi pagdating ko sa house from taping, madaling araw ko na makukuha yung script ko, magbabasa na kaagad ako kahit wala pang tulog. Wala lang, I guess pag love mo talaga yung ginagawa mo, you won't notice how tired you are," remarked Sarah.
 
The 18-year old actress is also being honed as the Kapuso Network's next Primetime Soap Queen.
 
But Sarah said she is not letting that title keep her from achieving her goal in showbiz: to act and sing.
 
"I'm actually surprised to what has been happening to my career. I'm very blessed and gusto ko lang magtuloy-tuloy. Ayaw kong mawala ang focus ko. I'm doing this because I love it. I'm also doing this for my fans and because it's my passion," exclaimed Sarah.

With passion such as hers, Sarah may just reach another goal: a house she can call her own someday.
