Dani wants to honor talent in comedy

June 28, 2019

DANI Porter is one of the scene-stealers in the press presentation of the 14 Starstruck finalists. She’s a natural comedian but says that although she’s tomboyish, she still prefers guys than gals. Has she been told that she looks like Bela Padilla?

“Many times na po,” she says. “10 years old pa lang po ako, sinasabi na ng mga tao sa’kin na kamukha ko siya. But gusto ko, makilala ako on my own. Nagulat po talaga ako ng mapasama ko sa Final 14, kasi alam kong jologs ako, e. Noong pinagsuot nila ako ng high heels, hindi ako makalakad. First time ko kasi. Si Ms. Heart Evangelista pa ang nagturo sa’king lumakad na naka-high heels. Kailangan ko talaga matutong magsuot ng mga pa-girlie kasi nasanay akong pam-boyish ang mga sinusuot dahil mas comfortable for me. Nag-aaral din akong sumagot nang maayos para may sense naman ang sinasabi ko.”

She turned 17 on March 26 and got her mestiza good looks from her half-German, half-American dad. She’s in grade 11 and has had one boyfriend. “Pero fling lang po, hindi naman nagtagal.”

Who among the Kapuso stars are her favorite? “Si Marian Rivera kasi ang ganda na niya, very talented. Gusto ko naman maka-work si Michael V kasi sobrang galing niya magpatawa sa ‘Bubble Gang’. I’m sure matutulungan niya akong ma-develop pa 'yung pagpapatawa ko.”

You can catch the journey of all the 14 Starstruck finalists on Saturdays after “Daddy’s Gurl” and on Sundays after “Daig Kayo ng Lola Ko”.
