Kylie Heeds Dad Robin Padilla's Advice: Career First, Boys Later

MANILA, Philippines - Young actress Kylie Padilla has taken to heart father Robin Padilla's advice when she ended her relationship with Aljur Abrenica.

''Gusto ni Papa na mag-work ng mabuti habang nasa showbiz. Matagal ko na ring gusto yun na mag-focus muna sa work at huwag mag-boyfriend. Kaya yun ang sinabi ko kay Aljur. Gusto rin nya yun,'' shared Kylie.

Kylie's wake-up call happened after ''Blusang Itim'' ended last year. She felt 2011 was not so productive. She did not land follow-up project after the show concluded.

''Feeling ko nasayang nang konti yung last year kasi wala akong projects. Medyo nanghinayang ako. Pag nanonood ako ng movies sabi ko ang gaganda ng mga stories, naiinggit ako. Sabi ko sa sarili ko gagalingan ko para mapasama sa mga magagandang projects,'' she recalled.

Kylie also admitted that she lost her focus in her career when she was in a relationship. ''So now trabaho muna ako kasi dati may mga problema rin sa ibang bagay kaya nawala rin ako sa focus.''

She clarified that she remains good friends with Aljur. In fact, they still text each other.

The focus seems to do Kylie better. She now has ''The Good Daughter.''

Although she finds her role in the series more ''relaxed'' compared to her part in ''Blusang Itim,'' Kylie said she sleeps with her script and wakes up only to resume studying it even more. ''I want my acting to be perfect and hopefully I'll win an acting award someday,'' she said.

With Kylie in ''The Good Daughter'' are Rocco Nacino, LJ Reyes, Luz Valdez, Raymond Bagatsing, Alicia Meyer, Glydel Mercado, Angelie Nicole Sanoy, Max Collins, Dion Ignacio and Ervic Vijandre.

Directed by Mike Tuvierra, ''The Good Daughter'' premieres on Feb. 13 on GMA Afternoon Prime.
