Gina Alajar Gets 3rd Lifetime Achievement Award, Her Wish For Her Three Sons Is For Them To Have A Successful Marriage

GINA ALAJAR was just honored by the Star Awards with the Ulirang Artista Lifetime Achievement Award. “Ang tanda ko na,” Gina, who’s turning 59 in June, tells us at the presscon of “Hindi Ko Kayang Iwan Ka” that will start airing on Monday. “I’m being honored for lifetime achievement. But I feel so blessed. Actually, it’s my third such award. I started as a child star and graduated to lead roles and now, I’m into directing. I give back the award to all the actors and directors I’ve worked with. Whatever I have now, I learned it all from them.”

She’s just happy to be still busy either as an actor or as a director. “Right now, back into acting ako as contravida in ‘Hindi Ko Kayang Iwan Ko’. Naku, tiyak na magagalit na naman sa’kin ang viewers dito in my role as the matapobreng ina ni Mike Tan na galit na galit sa napangasawa niyang dukha, si Yasmien Kurdi. Mas gusto ko ang kapwa namin mayamang si Jackie Rice para kay Mike, kaya gagawin ko ang lahat para apihin si Yasmien. Nandiyang sasabunutan ko siya, itutulak ko siya, dadagukan ko siya. Pero tuwang-tuwa ako sa tatlong kasama ko rito dahil lahat sila, nagdaan sa akin bilang Starstruck contestants na kumuha sa’kin ng acting workshop. I consider them my babies and I feel fulfilled dahil may maganda namang nangyari sa mga careers nila. At least, nakikita ko yung fruits of my labor kasi, as of now, masasabi ko talagang lahat sila, nakakaarte nang maayos sa harap ng camera.”

Gina now has five grandchildren with her three sons. The eldest, Ryan, has three kids, while Geoff and AJ now have one each. Geoff was the last one to be a dad and the mom is singer Maya. Do Geoff and Maya have plans to face the altar soon?

“Naku, decision na nila yan kasi matatanda na sila. They already know kung ano ang dapat nilang gawin sa buhay nila. May plano naman daw sila, ewan ko lang kung kailan. I will just be here to support them. Mabuti na ring they know themselves real well muna before they take the final plunge. Okay lang na hindi nila madaliin nang hindi sila magaya sa’kin. Nagmadali. It’s not easy to have a broken marriage at yun ang wish ko for my three sons. Sana maging successful ang married life nilang lahat.”
