Taki Saito regrets searching for her dad

ANGELIKA dela Cruz enjoys being a part of the hit afternoon drama, “Ika-6 na Utos,” where she is one of the antagonists. 

“Noong una, guest role lang ako supposed to be,” she says. “Pero naging effective yata ‘yung character ko kaya humaba nang humaba and I’m still in the show up to now as the sister of Ryza Cenon. Hanggang next year pa raw kami.”

Now, she’s also in a new movie, “Trip Ubusan: The Lolas vs. Zombies.” “Maganda ang movie at enjoy ako working with sina Jose Manalo, Wally Bayola and Paolo Ballesteros kasi lagi silang nagjo-joke sa set kaya masaya lang kami sa shooting. Parang welcome breather ito for me kasi dramahan kami nang dramahan sa ‘Ika-6 na Utos.’ Laging intense ang mga eksena roon, so dito, very light lang ang lahat. Ang mahirap lang, kapag nag-take na, makita ko lang sila Jose, Wally at Paolo, natatawa na ako, so I have to control myself para hindi ako matawa sa harap ng kamera.”

Angelika is also the chairman of their barangay in Malabon so she’s really quite busy these days. Will she be running for higher public office next time? 

“Naku, hindi na siguro. Mahirap pagsabayin kaya sabi ko, after my term, I will just return to showbiz and my private life. Dalawa na ang anak ko. I have two sons who are both growing up very fast so I want to give them more of my time and attention.”

Sylvia Sanchez’ career got a big boost when she did the afternoon drama, “The Greatest Love,” for which her crackerjack performance as Gloria, a martyr mother suffering from Alzheimer’s disease, just won her the PMPC best actress award. And she now plays the lead in a new soap, “Hanggang Saan” (formerly titled “All That Matters”), and also in a new movie from Regal, “Mama’s Girl,” where she plays Sofia Andres’ doting mother.

“2017 is really a good year for me sa dami ng magandang projects na dumating sa akin,” she says. “I thank the Lord for all the blessings at sana magtuloy-tuloy hanggang sa darating na taon.”

Sylvia gets to work with eldest son Arjo Atayde, who plays Paco in “Hanggang Saan,” a family drama about a caring mother who will do anything and everything for the welfare of her children.  

Sylvia stresses Gloria and Sonya are two different faces of a mother. “Nagtitiwala akong si Sonya ang bagong ina na mamahalin ng viewers dahil sa mga ginagawa niyang pagpapakasakit at pagsasakripisyo para sa mga anak niya. Ipapakita niya kung hanggang saan ang makakayang gagawin ng isang ina para proteksyunan ang kanyang mga anak. Natitiyak akong tatatak din si Sonya sa puso’t isipan ng viewers gaya ni Gloria. 

“Masarap ding katrabaho lahat ng artistang kasama sa ensemble dito kasi lahat, magaling, may effort to cooperate and contribute to make sure na mapapaganda namin ang aming bagong show that replace ‘The Promise of Forever.’”

We’re so happy for Regal Entertainment and Mother Lily Monteverde that it was their horror entry, “Haunted Forest,” that was chosen as official entry in the Metro Manila Film Festival this coming Christmas. A horror film is always a surefire hit in the annual film fiesta, just like last year’s “Seklusyon,” which was not even scary. 

Two years ago, Regal’s entry was “Haunted Mansion” and it ended up as one of the top grossers even if its stars had no proven track record at the box office, led by Janella Salvador. The films of Janella after that didn’t do well at the tills, like “Mano Po VII” and “Bloody Crayons.”

Taki Saito is happy to be one of the teen stars in “Trip Ubusan: The Lolas Vs. Zombies.” She is paired with “That’s My Bae” winner Kenneth Medrano and they’re one of the three love teams in the movie. The other two couples are Shaira Mae de la Cruz-Miggy Tolentino, and Athur Solinap (as the driver of the bus attacked by zombies) and former “Wowowin” dancer Lovely Abella (the conductress of the bus).

Taki was born in Japan with a half-Pinay/half-Japanese mother. 

“My dad naman is half-Japanese/half-Brazilian,” she says. “I never saw my dad because he and my mom had a bad breakup. They were both just 20 when I was born. When I was five, my mom got a job in Paris and we stayed there for eight years. When we returned here, 13 na ako and I don’t know how to speak Tagalog or English.”

Didn’t she try to communicate with her dad? 

“I did. Through social media, I met his parents and other members ng family nila. Okay naman ako sa kanila. But when I got in touch with my dad, who lives in Brazil, through Facebook, he was not excited at all. He acknowledged me, but parang cold siya sa’kin. Nagsisi nga ako kasi sinekreto ko pa ‘yun sa mommy ko, na I’ll get in touch with him.”

Did she feel sad growing up without a dad? 

“Actually, no. I’m 17 now and I can say that my mom really raised me well and I never felt there’s something lacking sa buhay ko. I never met my dad so parang wala naman akong na-miss. I regretted it nga na kinontak ko pa siya. Sana he didn’t answer my message na lang para sa utak ko, may mystery pa rin na maybe he’s a perfect dad. My mom has remarried and I have a stepdad na okay naman. I also have a stepbrother who’s 5 years old.”

Ruru Madrid’s career is on a roll these days. He just won his first acting award at the recent PMPC TV Awards as best actor for his performance as Ybarro in “Encantadia.” And now, after supporting Dingdong Dantes in Book 2 of “Alyas Robin Hood,” he’s being launched to full stardom in a new primetime soap, tentatively titled “K9 Detective” as he will have a canine friend in the story. He’s also part of the Vic Sotto-Dawn Zulueta movie, “Meant to Beh.”

“Sobrang dami ng blessings,” he says. “I remember when I was chosen to play Ybarro, ang daming tumutol, na-bash ako nang husto, pero heto, dahil sa role na ‘yun, nanalo ako ng unang acting award ko kaya salamat sa pamba-bash nyo, na-inspire ako to prove myself.”

He won as best actor in a tie with Dingdong Dantes for “Alyas Robin Hood.” How does it feel? “Naku, napakalaking karangalang manalo akong kasama si Kuya Dingdong kasi idol ko talaga siya ever since. Napakabait na tao niya at matulungin sa isang baguhang gaya ko. So proud akong nang manalo ako, tie kaming dalawa.”

And how does he feel that he’s just the second choice for his new show as it was first offered to Alden Richards? 

“Ang laki talaga ng pasasalamat kong sa akin ito ipinagkatiwala ng GMA kasi si Alden, Alden Richards na yun. I’m just so happy and thankful na sa’kin napunta ang ganito kalaking project. Ang laking blessing nito at napi-feel kong simula ito ng isang bago at magandang chapter sa career ko.”
