It seems Elisse Joson will be getting a lot of “hate” in the coming days following her entry onto the ABS-CBN’s primetime series “Ngayon At Kailanman” starring Joshua Garcia and Julia Barretto.

On it, she is Roxanne Constantino, the third wheel in the love story of Inno (Joshua) and Eva (Julia). Her character was introduced in a recent episode.

In an interview, Elisse admitted getting the role is an answered prayer for her.

In an interview, Elisse admitted getting the role is an answered prayer for her.

“I actually auditioned for the role a few weeks or was that months back? I wasn’t expecting they would call me and I would shoot a scene right then and there,” she shared. “It’s very overwhelming. I’m having mixed emotions, like, I’m shocked but at the same time happy that I got the role.”

In the story, Roxanne is Inno’s childhood friend. After years of “stalking” his social media accounts, she decided to show up although her intentions were not clear enough.

Elisse shared playing kontrabida is quite a challenge for her. She described her character as unapologetic, dark, and intense – totally opposite of what she is behind the camera.

“She’s like a social climber and very ambitious. She takes risks. She’s going do everything to get what she wants,” was how she put it.

The 22-year-old actress shared the production team made sure to change her hair and makeup as part of her character build-up. She will be sexier, fiercer, “one who wears red lipstick all the time.”

In one scene, when Inno was left knocked out cold for the night after an unknown number of drinks, Elisse’s Roxanne did not hesitate to make a move and try to kiss him.

Asked if she’s now ready to get “bashed” online by some of the loyal fans of JoshLia, Elisse said she is more than prepared for it.

“I already expected it. And I think I can handle it because at the end of the day, I’m just doing my job,” she reiterated.

“Ngayon At Kailanman” airs weeknights after “FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano.”
