"Ang best advice na ibinigay niya sa akin ay i-try ko itong bida-kontrabida na ito. Parang siya 'yung nagbigay sa akin ng extra push na 'maniwala ka sa akin, gawin mo ito,'" Concepcion said in an interview on "Bandila" on Tuesday night.

In the primetime series, Concepcion plays the role of Alexis, who has an affair with Eros (Milby), the abusive husband of Anessa (Santos).

"She believe in me, more than I believe myself. That's something I have to thank her for. Kasi sa totoo lang grabe ang response na nakikita ko o naririnig ko sa mga tao. Ito 'yung time na kapag naglalakad ako sa mall o kahit dito sa studio ang tawag sa akin ay Alexis and it's only been wala pang two weeks. Ang ganda ng feeling but at the same time gusto ko silang, 'oy si KC ako hindi ako si Alexis.' But there's a lot of Alexis in everybody, I always say there's Alexis in everyone," she said.

Concepcion said viewers can expect more exciting scenes in the upcoming episodes of the soap.

"Naku po, sa lahat ng nagmamahal na at naasar na kay Alexis, there's more. We can't wait to give you more dito sa 'Huwag Ka Lang Mawawala,'" she said.

"Huwag Ka Lang Mawawala" airs weeknights after "Juan dela Cruz."
