ANTIPOLO CITY/RIZAL PROVINCE: GMA 7’s set visit invite to bloggers in this laid-back part of the town had been an experience, so time and noteworthy. We witnessed in surprises how the rising Kapuso actors breath life and meaning to their tough roles under the presence of creative writers and directors, respectively.
Still donning on their characters and armed with demeanors that’s bright as the afternoon sky, the stars gamely sit-down with the digital media press for a Q & A.
GMA 7 has found a real on gem on Inah (as Maricel ) and Jake Vargas (as Julio). Their level of talents, cuteness and chemistry on and off cam are evident.
as topbilled by the promising Inah De Belen, GMA Artist newest contract talent
who is destine to follow her parent’s fame, and all geared to prove that she is more an angelic face.
The toll she took in reprising the role of no other than the Diamond Star herself Ms. Maricel Soriano, on the franchise of its 1981 movie. The role is pretty exhausting emotionally and physically, quite severe for a starter as this being her first leading role, but she plays with flying colors.
This scene and more are what made up the tear-jerking afternoon soap. 21 year old Inah cries beautifully, Epie Quizon comments. the emotional nature of cry would have frozen the heart of the most. While Jake’s acting depth gets better here even.
The network she chose to signed in few months back, has seen her promise and potential. Power acting does run in Ina’s blood being an offspring of award-winning stars Janice De Belen and John Estrada (both champions teleseryes). She was paired here with equally youthful looking lad Jake Vargas (in the role of William Martinez) who supports her in their scenes like a real gentleman.
I did ask: “Are you on pressured, being compared especially to your mother?”
“Yes. that’s true. but I felt challenged. and good thing she allows me to discover my hidden skills on my own”.
“Have you already introduced your good friend Jake to your mom”?
She was caught-off guard, her lips were sealed. And all she could say is “OH, MY MAMA”
(the bloggers laughed altogether).

An Offbeat Role He’s been waiting for…
The daytime soap #OhMyMama has open windows of opportunity to the charming now 24 year old “Prince of Mall Show” to showcase his versatility as a serious artist from being a cute-looking boy to a grown up man with a goon side. This is before he redeem himself and turned fatherly to their street kids captured by a pro-crime syndicate he was wrongly in.

I honored to share the frame with GMA Artist’s promising young blood @euncelagusad18 @iamphytosramirez @anaabarro. They could easily established rapport with the bloggers and are worthy of superlatives. They maybe raw, yet a revelation in the afternoon series.
