Snooky Serna sees younger self in Kyline Alcantara

Snooky Serna has nothing but praises for Kapuso star Kyline Alcantara.

Kyline will be the star in the remake of Snooky’s classic 80s film, “Blusang Itim”, where the lead’s unpleasant face would magically transform into a stunning one every time she wears the black blouse.

Kyline’s version will be having a more “millennial vibe” with “Black Lipstick.”

Snooky admitted that she couldn’t be any happier with Kyline as the lead star. The young teen, she said, is blessed with looks and good personality.

Snooky told Pep, “You know, I’ve noticed na si Kyline is very humble, which is so important in our industry.

“Very serious sa kanyang ginagawa, at hindi siya naglalaro,” she added.

The seasoned actress also revealed that she feels a strong affinity towards the young star.

Snooky added, “Kasi ano, may affinity ba ako sa kanya, kasi parang she reminds me also of myself noong bata ako.”

“May mga picture si Kyline, may pictures kami sa set na parang nakikita ko na, ‘Oy, nakakahawig ko si Kyline,’” he actress added.

Snooky laughed and said, “Feeling! Ang lakas ng loob [ko]. Heto na lang, ang lakas ng affinity na parang feeling ko ay anak ko si Ky.”

The actress explained, “Nakadagdag yung pagiging warm niya. I see my kids talaga sa kanya, e.”

“May mga action si Ky na parang ako…may nuanc3s siya na parang ako,” Snooky added.

Meanwhile, Kyline seemed to agree with the physical similarities with Snooky as she shared that she was once cast as a young Snooky in a movie.

She said, “Did you know that I portrayed the role of a young Snooky Serna in an indie movie already? And the producers said they cast me for the role since I look like a young Snooky.”
