Fotrait | Kimmy Dora

Click to enlarge image.“Pwede ba mag girdle sa loob ng bathing suit?!” (Translation: “Can one wear a gridle inside a bathing suit?!”), commented a flabbergasted Eugene Domingo during the presscon of her first lead movie, Kimmy Dora: Kambal sa Kiyeme.

This was the reaction of the screen and theatre actress, and now “bagong reyna ng komedya” (T: “new queen of comedy”) to a question from one of the members of the media. Laughter stormed the room, and true to her comedic prowess, Eugene used the moment to further wet the crowd’s entertainment appetite.

Kimmy Dora is a comedy on twins with opposite personalities both played by Eugene. Their differing behaviors lead to side-spliting conflicts, switcheroos and whole lot of craziness.

In the movie, Eugene wears a swimsuit boldly asking leading man Dingdong Dantes, “You find me sexy, don’t you?” She also reveals that she had a kissing scene (shot three times for different angles) with Dingdong. When asked how it tasted (yes, the press can be very direct), she responded, “Parang lang Bear Brand Choco!” (T: “Just like Bear Brand Choco!”), the milk product she is endorsing.

When asked if she was more of a Kimmy or Dora, she tells that people think she’s more of Kimmy but she has bits of both. But as delightfully observed by the crowd, more of Kimmy came out when she delivered punchlines.

Kimmy Dora is Eugene’s first starring film after years of successful supporting roles. “...Hinog na ako. ‘Pag hindi pa ako gumawa ngayon baka mabulok na ako, ‘di ba?” (T: “...I’m already ripe. If I don’t make one now, I’ll end up rotten, right?”), she interjects with sense and humor. Eugene asks in the end, “Give me a chance... to show you what I can do.”

The presscon was held last Thursday August 13 at the function room of C&E Publishing in Quezon City.

Kimmy Dora, written by Chris Martinez, directed by Bb. Joyce Bernal and produced by Spring Films, opens on September 2.
