Nora Aunor Gives Full Support To Tv5 Newbies Vin Abrenica And Sophie Albert

NORA AUNOR had a thorough physical checkup after her bout with severe coughing and she’s now back taping “Never Say Goodbye” for TV5. Director Mac Alejandre is very optimistic they can have at least three weeks of advanced episodes before the show finally starts airing on February 11.

“Talagang ginagastusan ng TV5 ang show na ito to make sure viewers will like it,” he says. “Ang ganda ng location namin in Benguet, a rose farm supposedly owned by Nora and Gardo Versoza. The story starts in the present. Anak ni Nora si Vin Abrenica na nagkagusto with a rich girl from Manila, si Sophie Albert. But it turns out Sophie’s dad is Cesar Montano, na siya ring tunay na ama ni Vin. Nora is already pregnant with Vin when Cesar dumps her kasi pinakasalan ang mas mayamang si Alice Dixson. We start with the present then sa flashbacks, doon ipapakita kung ano ang nangyari kina Nora and Cesar in the past. ‘Never Say Goodbye’ ang title kasi it shows true love never says goodbye but always catches up with the present. Malaki ang role dito ni Raquel Villavicencio as the yaya of Alice and Sophie as she’s the one who holds the key that will uncover the secrets of the lead characters.”

So how do new Artista Academy discoveries Vin and Sophie perform in their scenes with their more seasoned co-stars? “Okay sila, they definitely deliver. Hasang-hasa naman sa workshops ang mga yan kaya puede na silang lumaban ng sabayan sa more senior stars. Napakabait din naman ni Ate Guy sa kanila dahil inaalalayan sila ng husto sa bawat eksena.”

What happens now to the runners up in Artista Academy: Chantal and Akihiro, Mark and Shaira?

“They will have their own shows soon. Ilo-launch din sila ng TV5.”
