Derrick Monasterio Feels Happy That Their New Soap, 'Hanggang Makita Kang Muli', Is Off To A Good Start

DERRICK MONASTERIO is understandably happy that the soap where he plays his first leading man role, “Hanggang Makita Kang Muli”, registered strongly in its first few episodes. “Nakakatuwa kasi ang dami talagang nag-abang sa simula ng aming show,” he says. “We want to assure them na mas gaganda pa ang story nito as the days go by.”

What can he say about the observation that he’s the next Kapuso young actor to hit it big after Alden Richards? “It’s flattering, sana nga, magdilang anghel sila. But it’s difficult to duplicate his success sa ‘Eat Bulaga’. Perfect timing ang naging pagtatambal sa kanila ni Maine Mendoza. But I’m hoping na maging iba naman sana ang kapalaran ko. Mas makilala ko as a good actor ng ating viewers. And for this, I’m banking on our ‘Hanggang sa Makita Kang Muli’ director, Laurice Guillen, para mas mapagbuti ko ang trabaho ko. I’m learning so much from her, like how important it is na ma-visualize mo nang buong-buo yung character para mas maging realistic and convincing ang acting mo.”

The show’s pilot week shows Raymart Santiago as Larry and Angelika de la Cruz as Evelyn happy as husband and wife until they meet Ina Feleo as Odessa, who gets terribly obsessed with Larry, stalking him and hurting the pregnant Evelyn who delivers their baby prematurely. At the age of 2, Baby Ana is kidnapped by Odessa and imprisoned inside a barn. This affects the marriage of Larry and Evelyn until they separate. Ana grows up behaving like a dog as manages to survive inside the barn with only a dog for company.
