Amalia Fuentes Grabs Second Opportunity To Experience ABS-CBN TeleseryeAmalia Fuentes is thankful to ABS-CBN for giving her another chance to experience working in a teleserye. A few weeks ago, the 72-year-old Movie Queen graced the showbiz headlines when she decided to immediately resign from another ABS-CBN upcoming TV series after just a day of taping.
She said she instantly resigned from the soap ‘Muling Buksan ang Puso’ because she could not commit to work 24 hours a day. Fuentes cited health reasons for her decision. But she expressed gratitude to the network for taking care of her especially during the first taping day. That soap could have been her reunion project with friend and former archrival Susan Roces.
Now, Fuentes revealed that she has been taping on her new soap project for the network for four days already. So far, she is loving the experience. It is not a new TV series that she is working in. Fuentes is set to be an additional character in the now airing series ‘Huwag Ka Lang Mawawala,’ headlined by Judy Ann Santos.
In an interview, Fuentes disclosed that her character in the show would appear at the later part of the series. She said she instantly agreed to do the role after she learned that it would depict advocacy on women empowerment. She would not play a villain but a support to the main star. Fuentes hinted that she does not mind playing a support role for another star.
She recalled that she was immediately charmed by Santos. During their first taping day, Fuentes and Santos already did an emotional scene together. Fuentes was amazed at how fast Santos could cry. She admitted that she has not been able to do that in her entire movie career.
Fuentes also reiterated her instant connection with Santos. She said she is wishing that Santos was her daughter. Fuentes added that she is very thankful for having the opportunity to work with the Queen of Pinoy Soap Opera.
Dream come true
Fuentes is proud to be finally working for a teleserye. She is amazed at how almost all stars today are teleserye oriented. Fuentes disclosed that almost all her friends are talking about soap operas. Thus, she got interested to finally try out acting for a current series.
‘Huwag Ka Lang Mawawala’ stars Santos with Sam Milby and KC Concepcion as her main villains. Fuentes will take the role of a future ally to Santos’ character in the show. The TV series airs every night at Primetime Bida. It is directed by Jerry Sineneng, Tots Mariscal, and Malu Sevilla. It serves as Santos’ return to TV. Now, the TV series also serves as Fuentes comeback project after decades of staying away from the limelight.
