Karel Marquez returns in TV

KAREL MARQUEZ was just starting her acting career with GMA (she was given a good role in “Zaido”) when she suddenly married her Chinoy husband, Armand Go. They now how have two kids: Keiley Adrianna (1 year, 10 months) and Kyler Armand (9 months). She started guesting in some TV5 shows last year but is now given a full length comeback role as villainess to Alex Gonzaga in the dramaserye “Babaeng Hampaslupa” that starts airing Monday at 9 PM after “Willing-Willie”. “I’m grateful to TV5 as I really missed acting,” she says. “Happy naman akong kontrabida kasi mas bagay daw sa’kin ito dahil matapang daw ang features ko. I’m just excited to work again, but siempre, my family remains my priority. Kaya ko namang pagsabayin ang family life and career. I also want to thank my husband kasi very supportive siya sa career ko. Alam naman niya kasing maligaya ako sa ginagawa ko.”

In the story, she’s in love with Martin Escudero but he falls for Alex. “Kaya magiging super hate ko si Alex and I’ll do everything para apihin siya dahil mayaman kami rito ng mother kong si Bing Loyzaga at sila, poor. Meron kaming eksenang sasampalin ko siya’t sasabunutan. Exciting, di ba? Very physical. Aside from this, I also taped an episode for ‘Pidol Wonderland’ called ‘Dyesebilbil’, about a fat mermaid. Sirena rin ako rito at kontrabida naman ako kay Jasmine Curtis.”
