MANILA – Actress Angel Locsin will be working with Coco Martin for a “Maala-ala Mo Kaya” episode that pays tribute to the 44 SAF commandos who died in the January 25 Mamasapano clash.
“Ito ay tribute sa mga kasama natin na hindi pinalad. Sila ang nagtatanggol sa atin sa araw-araw pero hindi natin nare-realize kung gaano kahirap ang personal na pinagdadaanan nila na every time na mayroon silang operation eh. Tanggap nila na baka di sila makalagpas doon,” Locsin said.
(This is a tribute for our fallen (SAF commandos). They are the ones who protect us every day but we don’t realize how hard it is for them every time they are on a mission. They accept that they might not be able to surpass the mission.)
Locsin will be playing the role of Suzette Tucay, the fiancée of one of the Fallen 44, SAF operative Gary Erana.
“Nakakalimutan natin na itong mga taong ito, malaki ang sinasakripisyo nila sa personal na buhay nila. Dito bibigyan natin sila ng pagkatao dito. Ipapakita natin ang sacrifices nila sa relationship, sa pamilya, yung everyday struggle nila na tanggap nila na anytime pwede silang mawala,” she said.
(We seem to have forgotten these people who sacrificed a lot of their personal lives. In this (episode) we will give life to their personalities. We will show their sacrifices in their relationships, their family, their every day struggle of accepting how everything can be lost anytime.)
“Magandang bagay din na ginagawa ito para ‘di tayo makalimot,” she added.
(It’s good to be doing this so we won’t forget.)
