Gloria Romero Happy To Be Reunited With Her 'Tanging Yaman' Director After 13 Years

GLORIA ROMERO was hesitant to accept the role of Donya Cristina Alperos, the mother of Cesar Montano in “Akin Pa Rin ang Bukas” when it was first offered to her. “Kasi I really want to take a rest dahil sunod-sunod yung soaps ko sa GMA from ‘Munting Heredera’, ‘Makapiling Kang Muli’, ‘Cielo de Angelina’ and ‘Forever’,” she says. “But then, they narrated the story to me, nagustuhan ko, maganda rin ang role ko at, higit sa lahat, it’ll reunite me with Laurice Guillen, who was my director in ‘Tanging Yaman’ that gave me several best actress awards. When I learned it’s her, sabi ko na agad, yes, I’ll do it since it’s been 13 years since we did ‘Tanging Yaman’. At ang maganda kay Laurice, hindi puyatan at magdamagan ang taping. Maaga kami natatapos.”

Absent at the presscon of “Akin Pa Rin ang Bukas” were Solenn Heussaff, Gary Estrada and Ruru Madrid? Wonder why they skipped the affair when veterans like Gloria Romero and Liza Lorena made it. It’s good supporting stars Tiya Pusit and Glenda Garcia were also there.
