The flower girl will be launched on the big screen as a monster's daughter.

Naunang pumirma ng movie contract ang bagong Kapuso star na si Carla Abellana para sa Regal Films bago pa man siya i-launch ng GMA-7. At ngayong pumapalo na sa ratings ang launching soap nitong Rosalinda sa GMA-7, ka-partner si Geoff Eigenmann, minabuti na rin ng mag-inang Lily Monteverde at Roselle Monteverde-Teo na i-launch si Carla sa pelikula sa pamamagitan ng isang horror comedy-Ang Nanay Kong Aswang.

Last year pa nabuo ang kuwento ng pelikula na para sana kina Ai-Ai delas Alas at Eugene Domingo. Hindi pumuwede si Ai-Ai at si Eugene ang ipinalit sa kanya, habang si Rubirubi naman ang kukuha ng papel sana ni Eugene. Hindi na rin pumuwede si Eugene dahil sa sigalot ng kampo niya sa Regal, tuluyan na itong pinagpahinga.

Sa darating na Metro Manila Film Festival 2009, balitang apat sa walong kalahok na pelikula ay may aswang element. Ang Star Cinema at Viva Films, parehong naghahanap ng proyekto para kay Pokwang na may temang aswang. Dahil dito, minabuti ng Regal na gamitin ang mahigit isang taon nang script at ibinigay ito kay Joel Lamangan para maging launching movie ni Carla.

Si Carla ang gaganap na panganay na anak ng aswang, at siya pa lang ang sure cast sa pelikula. End of July na ito magsisimula ng shooting.

Carla Abellana is fun, fearless, fabulous, and single. As she makes her debut on the cover of Cosmopolitan magazine this September, she talks about the special men in her life, including ex-boyfriend JC Intal.

From nurturing a five-year relationship in relative anonymity—they met when Carla was a college freshman in De La Salle University and JC was a basketball player in Ateneo de Manila University—Carla was suddenly thrust into the limelight as she bagged the title role in GMA-7's Rosalinda. The demands of the job clearly took toll on the relationship.

"I was starting to observe what he had been going through [since I joined showbiz, so] we talked about it," she tells Cosmo. "He's giving me time to deal with the pressure of the business."

Carla is not closing her doors on JC though.

"He has brought so much joy into my life," she says. "[And] we're still in touch... Time off lang talaga but not naman goodbye forever."

The time apart will allow her to hone her craft in the industry she never really thought she would enter. "I really want to concentrate on my job," she says. "I want to focus on my projects. I want to be a better actress."

Helping her through the wild ride that is showbiz is onscreen partner Geoff Eigenmann, who is also among the special men in Carla's life. As she admits that he is special to her, does this mean that a romance is waiting in the wings?

"Well, he admitted that he has a crush on me," she shyly tells Cosmo. "Of course, di ba, when you work with somebody, iba yung bonding."

Although she would prefer not to get into a showbiz romance, she also admits that the possibility is always there.

"People in show business are also just... people. They're also human. They're capable of loving as well, so you'll never know," she points out, "But with the schedule? Naku, hindi puwede talaga!"
