Gloria Romero Happy To Be Reunited With Carmina Villaroel In New GMA-7 Soap After 'Palibhasa Lalake' Which They Did Together For 12 Years

AT 84, GLORIA ROMERO’s career as an actress now spans more than six decades. She has worked with the country’s best directors from Gerry and Mike de Leon, Bernal and Brocka to Abaya and Guillen, and she has no intention of retiring yet. “As long as nakakapag-memorize pa ako ang lines ko, I will continue to act,” she beams.

She’s energized to stay in the showbiz all the more when her current show where she plays the title role, “Daig Kayo ng Lola Ko”, hit the number one spot in the ratings recently. “Hindi ko nga akalain na sa edad kong ito, magna-number one pa kami,” she smiles.

Now, she has another new teleserye, the yet untitled primetime soap topbilled by the Bianca Umali and Miguel Tanfelix love team. “Tuwang-tuwa ako kasi reunited kami rito ni Carmina Villaroel, who was just a kid nang una kong makasama in ‘Palibhasa Lalake’. We worked there together for 12 years and now, she has kids of her own. Siya ang gaganap na mother ni Bianca rito at ako naman, isang very rich hacendera na lola nila. Kasama rin dito si Marvin Agustin as the father of Miguel. First time ko silang nakatrabaho ni Jolina, mga teenager pa lang sila in ‘Labs Ko si Babes’.”

She just wished that the location of their taping for the soap is nearer. “Ang layo kasi, sa Batangas pa. E, may vertigo pa naman ako kaya ayokong natatagtag ako. Buti na lang, sa ‘Daig Kayo ng Lola’, most of the time, nakaupo lang ako as I present the story each week.”

Does she have a new movie? “Oh yes, kinuha ako ni Coco Martin sa ‘Ang Panday’, kaya may entry ako sa filmfest. Noong una, may mga nagtetext sa’kin, gusto raw akong makausap ni Coco. Sabi ko, bakit, e we have never worked together. Hindi ako naniwala, until Malou Santos ng Star Cinema told me na hinahanap nga raw ako ni Coco, so nag-usap kami and he gave me a special role. Naka-six shooting days rin ako sa kanya. Ang guwapo pala talaga niya in person at magaling ding artista na, director pa ng movie. Kinuha rin niya ang apo ko, si Christopher Gutierrez, para maging part ng movie. Kasama siya ni Jake Cuenca who plays Lizardo.”
