Dingdong Dantes Considers Daughter Baby Zia A Lucky Charm In His Career

DINGDONG DANTES considers his daughter Baby Zia a lucky charm as he now has a hit TV show, “Alyas Robin Hood”, and has a new movie with Star Cinema, “The Unmarried Wife”, with Angelica Panganiban. “Super busy ako these days, laging pagod at puyat kasi lagari ako sa sets ng ‘Alyas Robin Hood’ and ‘Unmarried Wife’ na may playdate na on November 16 so paspasan ang shooting namin,” he says. “But okay lang kasi medyo pahinga naman ako ng first half of 2016 at bumawi lang ngayon. Nakakasulit ng pagod yung positive feedbacks we get for ‘Alyas Robin Hood’ and also the high ratings na consistent talaga ang panonood ng viewers.”

Because of his busy sked, he has lesser time to be with Baby Zia. “Nabawasan talaga ang oras ko sa bahay. Sakripisyo talaga. Buti na lang at very understanding ang wife ko and she knows kumakayod ako for our family. But hopefully, after the movie is shown, mas may time na ako sa kanila ng daughter namin, lalo na during the Christmas holidays na pati taping, tigil muna.”

Baby Zia is turning one year old on November 23. What are their plans? “We’ll have a party for her pero hindi yung engrande. Simple lang ang celebration with our immediate family. Ang importante, magkasama-sama lang as we celebrate Zia’s turning one year old.”

When do they intend to have a new baby? “Hindi naman kami ang magde-determine kasi gift yan mula sa Panginoon. Siya na ang bahalang magbigay. But if given the choice, mas mabuti sigurong palakihin muna nang konti si Zia so we can enjoy our time with her as a baby.”

This week in “Alyas Robin Hood”, there will be two hooded figures who will confuse the people. First is the real Alyas Robin Hood played by Dingdong and the other one is the Bad Robin Hood who does the exact opposite of what Dingdong does. This impersonator is Chino, played by theater-film actor Anthony Falcon (“Anino sa Likod ng Buwan”), who is ordered by Sid Lucero as Dean to destroy the good reputation of Dingdong.

The forces of evil continue to wreak havoc with Dennis Padilla as Wilson cheating the members of a cooperative by stealing their savings from a bank. One of those deceived is Jaclyn Jose as Judy, Dingdong’s mom. A new character is also added, Joross Gamboa as Jojo, who steals the black pearl triad necklace from the display case in the home of Andrea Torres as Venus.
