Viewers of the Kapamliya primetime series, “Bagani” were surely surprised when they found out that Kristine Hermosa would join the all-star ensemble of the show as Malaya.
Her last teleserye appearance was in “Noah,” a Kapamilya series which aired last 2010. After 8 years, the beautiful actress will grace our TV screens once again.
Fans of the show, including Laurenti Dyogi, ABS-CBN’s head of TV Production, rejoiced for Kristine’s major comeback.
In a previous interview with PEP, Laurenti Dyogi never thought Kristine would life the role they offered to her.
“Well, noong ginawa naman talaga yung kwentong yun, merong character na ganon. Tapos noong kina-cast na, iniisip namin sino yung bagay, sino yung hindi pa nakikita at matagal na. So when the Bagani team pitched it to Kristine, we’re surprised na nagustuhan niya.”
Apparently, Kristine doesn’t like acting in soap operas. According to Dyogi, the crew was surprised that Kristine wanted and liked the role.
Of course, this came as a surprise and a blessing to the show at the same time, considering the fact that Kristine is one of the few actresses who holds timeless beauty and an impeccable acting prowess at the same time.
“It’s actually a pleasant surprise for us, so we’re happy, ang gaganda, we have Liza and Kristine, two of the most beautiful faces in showbiz, you’ll see them in one screen, so it’s a feat for the Bagani team.”
Asked if Kristine would do more projects in the Kapamilya network after her “Bagani” stint, the ABS-CBN executive answered:
“Hindi kami nakapagplano ng ganoon kalayo kasi pamilyado si Kristine, so we don’t know also her plans but we will always be open to working with Kristine. Si Kristine naman yata kasi, hindi naman na kailangang magtrabaho talaga so ang gusto niya lang, kung maganda yung project at naibigan niya yung role, I suppose she’s willing to do it.”
