Glaiza on the path of revenge

GLAIZA de Castro plays the title role in GMA-7’s new tearjerker, afternoon series “Contessa.” 

Directed by Albert Langitan, “Contessa” is an intense revenge drama with Glaiza playing Bea Resurrecion, whose new husband, played by Mark Herras in a special role as Marco, is murdered on their very wedding day, just right after the priest had married them.

“I love my role kasi she starts as someone na malinis ang mga intensyon sa buhay,” Glaiza says. “Gusto lang niyang magkaroong mapayapang buhay, pero may mga taong hahadlang sa layunin niya at hindi siya hahayaang magkaroon ng peaceful life kaya mapipilitan siyang lumaban at gumanti. This is a revenge drama na maraming taong inapi ang tiyak na makaka-identify.”

Also starring in the show is comebacking Kapuso actor Geoff Eigenmann, along with Jak Roberto, Lauren Young, Gabby Eigenmann, Chanda Romero, Ciara Sotto, Phytos Ramirez, Leandro Baldemor, Tanya Gomez, Dominic Roco, Karel Marquez, and Bernadette Allyson.

Another new GMA show is “My Guitar Princess,” featuring singer-actress Julie Anne San Jose. She was last seen in the afternoon soap “Pinulot Ka Lang sa Lupa” with boyfriend Benjamin Alves over a year ago.

This time, she has two leading men. First is Gil Cuerva, who made waves as the leading man of Jennylyn Mercado in “My Love from the Star.” The other one is Kiko Estrada, who was last seen in the Regal movie “My Fairy Tail Love Story” and is now shooting a new youth movie, “Walwal Boys.”

Megan Young, the country’s first Miss World winner, turned 28 on February 27 and was pleasantly surprised when her co-stars in the hit afternoon soap, “The Stepdaughters,” greeted her on the set of the show with an impromptu party for the cast and crew. 

What’s her birthday wish? 

“I already got it,” she beams. “My wish is mag-rate sana ang ‘The Stepdaughters’ and the Lord answered my prayers kasi nga it’s really a big hit. For the first two weeks of telecast of our show, we’re proud that we’re number one in our slot.”

This is not surprising since the rivalry of Megan as the humble Mayumi and Katrina Halili as the haughty Isabelle gets hotter and more intense in each new episode. “I think people love ‘yung confrontations namin ni Katrina so much, mga sagutan, patutsadahan, and the catfights, sothey can just expect more of that in our show. But off cam, we’re really the best of friends. Napapagalitan nga kami dahil sa mga kalokohan at paghaharutan namin sa set. One time, sa isang eksena, nagsabuyan kami ng flour at ng ice cream at tawanan kami nang tawanan, seryoso pa naman ang eksena. Nag-e-enjoy lang naman kami and also celebrating kasi nga, ang taas lagi ng ratings namin, thanks to all the viewers who support us.”

She and boyfriend Mikael Daez are paired for the first time in the show and they now seem to be more open about their love life. They now freely share photos of their sweet moments together on social media, including their first date on the beach years ago. 

“Yes, it’s nice to be open and to be able to post about what’s happening to us when we feel like it,” she says. “But other than that, we’re still very much private about the details of our love life.”

Neil Ryan Sese gets the rare chance to play a romantic leading man in the new morning rom-com, “Ang Forever Ko’y Ikaw,” where he is paired with Camille Prats. They play two single parents whose paths frequently cross, but they do not know each other yet so they just ignore each other, until finally, they are introduced to one another in person and sparks fly. 

“Big challenge ito for me kasi nasanay ako sa character roles,” he says. “Sa ‘Munting Heredera’ nga, kontrabida ako kay Camille at ginugulpi ko siya roon. So sa supporting roles, sanay na ako, plakado na for me kung anong gagawin ko. Pero dito sa ‘Ang Forever Ko’y Ikaw,’ lahat, bago para sa’kin. Tinanong ko muna sila, sigurado ba kayo akong gusto nyo sa role na ‘yan? Baka hindi ko kaya! Sabi nila, kailangan daw, macho at guwapo ako. Sabi ko, macho, walang problema, magdyi-gym lang ako. Pero guwapo? Ewan ko, kasi todo na ito. I have to make some adjustments to be convincing sa role ko as Lance. Pero para tulungan ako sa role, ikinuha nila ako ng sarili kong personal stylist. Inaalagaan ang wardrobe ko, ‘yung looks ko, pati gupit ng buhok ko. Ang peg ko raw, si Robert Downey Jr. Kamukha na ba ko ni Ironman?”

And he will be pitted against the rival show starring Robin Padilla and Richard Yap. “Nakakakaba talaga. Pero malakas ang fighting spirit namin. Magpapakilig daw kami so to prepare, nag-workshop kami ni Camille at maganda naman daw ang chemistry namin on screen. It helps na magkaibigan na talaga kami at comfortable sa isa’t isa. We trust the material of our show, kasi maganda talaga ang story, lovable ang characters at magagaling ang directors namin, so confident kaming masisiyahan ang viewers dito.”

Ivan Andrew Payawal directs his first mainstream movie in “Ang Pambansang Third Wheel.”

 A talent of IdeaFirst Company, he has directed two indie films before. With Cinema One Digitals, he did “The Comeback” with Kaye Abad as a has-been actress who tries to make a comeback. For Cinemalaya, he did “I America” starring Bela Padilla as an Amerasian in Olongapo looking for her American father.

Ivan has a bachelor’s degree in communications from La Salle and worked for a while in advertising, then he studied filmmaking at the Marilou Diaz-Abaya Film Institute in 2009 and never returned to the corporate world. Before directing, he worked first as a production and wardrobe assistant, production designer, casting director and assistant director.

How is it making his first mainstream film, “Ang Pambansang Third Wheel” for Viva Films starring Sam Milby and Yassi Pressman? 

“It’s a dream come true for me to work with a big company like Viva,” he says. “Kasi my indie films before were just shown on a limited run in only a few theaters. Now, this film will be released nationwide. And I feel very blessed kasi mahuhusay ang actors na binigay sa’kin and very cooperative. Intimidated ako at first, but they trusted me and never made me feel na baguhan lang ako. They’re both hardworking and passionate in their love for their craft.”

One disadvantage is that both Sam and Yassi are busy taping for their respective soaps, so scheduling was a problem. “We can only shoot on weekends kapag wala silang taping. But it worked to the film’s advantage kasi we were given the luxury of time to polish our script and make the movie really good. This is a feel good movie about a young woman looking for true love and I guarantee the viewers that they’ll be entertained and have a good time when they watch it.”

Unbridled brazenness

‘Outrage over the killing of priests today in our country will persist and, if real justice is not served soon will, in all probability, combine for a growing social and political unrest with a polarized Church.’
