Janice De Belen Having Fun Working With Aldub Love Team In 'Destined To Be Yours' After The Last Love Team She Worked With, Danrich, Broke Up

JANICE DE BELEN is back as a Kapuso playing the quirky mother of Maine Mendoza in the new primetime soap that starts on Monday, “Destined to Be Yours”.

“Gusto ko lang magtrabaho uli sa GMA para maiba naman,” she says. “It’s in GMA naman where Gelli and I did the morning show ‘Sis’ for several years. And now, I’m happy to be part of the first prime time drama of Alden Richards and Maine Mendoza, kasi personally, nakukyutan talaga ako sa kanila as a love team. They have something na nakakakilig talaga. Kakaiba ang chemistry nila. Ang cute nilang tingnan. Kakaiba rin yung role ko as Sally Obispo, na mahilig sa painting and to do psychic readings. Masayahin and optimistic in life.”

How does she find Maine as an actress? “When we did our first scene together, I felt na ninenerbiyos siya so I told her to relax. Sabi ko, the more that you stress yourself, he more you can not deliver well. Being a new actress, wala pa siyang preconceived notions about technique so raw pa siya, basta kung ano yung dumarating, kung ano yung lumalabas from her, natural lang, which is good. And when it comes to doing comedy, she has good timing. It’s a good gift and she has that.”

Before this, she supported the DanRich love team playing the mom of Erich Gonzales in “Be My Lady”. This is the reason why she was shocked when she learned that Erich broke up with Daniel Matsunaga. “Nagulat talaga ako kasi ang tagal naming magkakasama while taping the show on location in Pampanga. I really thought, sila na ang magkakatuluyan. But such is life, di mo talaga alam what will happen.”
