Carla Abellana Thanked Maricel Soriano For Slapping Her Four Times

CARLA ABELLANA as Ellery in “Kung Aagawin Mo ang Langit” gets mixed feedback from the hit show’s loyal viewers. “Some pity me sa kaapihang dinaranas ko,” she says. “Pero may naiinis naman dahil tanga raw ako sa sobrang pagkamartir at dapat na kong lumaban. Sa tweets nga, sinasabihan ako ng fans, lumaban ka na. But there’s a new development in the story. Meron akong bagong leading man, Frank Magalona, at si Mike Tan naman gets shot when someone tried to kidnap our daughter Samantha. Si Michelle Madrigal naman will give birth to her own baby. So marami pang mangyayari kasi extended kami up to February 2012.”

2011 is a good year for her as she got to do three major films: “My Neighbor’s Wife” and her two filmfest entries, “Yesterday Today Tomorrow” and “Manila Kingpin”. Those who’ve seen the premiere of “Yesterday” praise her for her fine performance as Gabby Concepcion’s much younger wife who gets humiliated by his first one, Maricel Soriano. “They tell me hindi ako basta nilamon ni Ms. Maricel and I say dapat lang. If you’re given the chance to work with someone like her, sulitin mo na.”

In the scene where Maricel learns that her daughter Eula Caballero was injured in an earthquake, Maricel slapped her so hard. “Masakit yun kasi totoo. But na-anticipate ko naman. Pero inulit pa yung take so bale four times niya kong sinampal. But she hugged me agad at nag-sorry siya sa’kin. I told her okay lang yun at nagpasalamat pa ko sa kanya as I’m just proud to be part of this film’s powerhouse cast.”
