Maricel Soriano returns to TV via ‘Ang Dalawang Mrs. Real’-A A +A
Thursday, May 29, 2014
DIAMOND Star Maricel Soriano is back on boob tube via Kapuso channel's newest primetime series "Ang Dalawang Mrs. Real".
Directed by Andoy Ranay, Soriano will breathe life to the character of Milette Gonzales-Real, the first wife of Anthony Real, played by Primetime King Dingdong Dantes.
In an interview, Soriano described her character as the "martyr wife".
She plays the role of a successful woman who falls in love with a younger man, will give up her career to be a full-time wife and mother and will eventually find out the extramarital affair of her husband.
The seasoned actress revealed that she had difficulties portraying the role as it is different from how and what she is in real life.
The actress said she's not the type of person who falls in love with a much younger guy and will just keep her silence even if she knows that her partner is having an illicit affair.
"Hindi ako yung character kaya nahirapan ako in a way. Ang hirap nung personality and si Maria, sa totoo, hindi ganun. So, nag clash yung nararamdaman ko," she said.
"Ang hirap ng hindi pareho. Minsan gagawa ka ng isang character na yung nilalaman ng kalooban mo parang may resemblance. Dito, iba talaga kaya mahirap for me. Pero maayos naman namin nagampanan," she added.
She said she is amazed to learn that some women would go the extra mile just to forgive their philandering husband and will still love them unconditionally.
"Ibang klase ang level ng pag-ibig ang kaya niyang ibigay. Doon mo makikita talaga kung hanggang saan kayang magmahal ng isang tao. May gigil factor ako sa kanya nung una kasi hindi ko alam kung bakit ganun. Hindi ko naiintidihan," she added.
The Diamond Star said she does not know how her character will pan out, as she likes to be challenged, but confident that their director would present a good and quality show.
"I don't like to ask (kung ano pa yung mangyayari sa character) kasi gusto ko nagugulat ako para raw yung dating," she said.
As for her leading man, the Diamond Star is impressed with the performance of Dantes.
"Ang galing galing nung bata at nakikinig kasi sa akin. Mahusay siya. Okay siya and (ginagawa niya) yung homework niya. Naaaliw ako sa ganyan. Bilib ako kasi nakikita ko yung (hard work). Mahusay yung bata," she said.
Although she is known for her brilliance in drama and knack for comedy, Soriano shared that she is still nervous on how people will react on this new project as they will see a very different Maricel Soriano.
"Ang kaba ko mula dito (17th floor) hanggang baba. Sabi ko 'easy ko lang Mary'. Pinipilit kong wag mag-isip pero nini-nyerbos ako. Binabalik ko na lang kay Papa God," she added.
As for her decision to do her comeback soap with GMA-7, the Diamond Star said she made the right choice.
"Wala akong problema and halata naman. I take the positive. If I will sum up everything, I'm proud and I'm very, very happy. Hindi ako nagkamali.
"Ang Dalawang Mrs. Real" airs weekdays beginning June 2 on GMA Telebabad. (Sunnex)
