MANILA – Kapamilya actress Angelica Panganiban will be playing the role of the iconic mother, Claudia Buenavista, in ABS-CBN’s ‘Pangako Sa’yo’ remake.

Panganiban will then portray the mother of lead actor Daniel Padilla.

“Actually kung ako ang tatanungin ay gusto ko na siyang gawin. Kaya lang ako kasi may mga kino-consider akong mga tao kung ano sa tingin nila ‘yung opinion nila. Kasi hindi naman biro na first time kong gaganap na mother role and hindi naman siya (Padilla) below 10 years old, binata na siya,” Panganiban said.

(Actually, if you will ask me, I’d like to do it now. But then, I’m taking into consideration some people’s opinion because it’s not that easy as it’s my first time to play the role of a mother and he’s not below 10 years old, he’s already a teenager.)

“Seryoso ako doon sa kaya ko bang mapatunayan sa mga tao na mukha kaming mag-ina yung ganoon. So tinanong ko si Tita Malou (Santos of Star Cinema), sabi ko, ‘Believable po ba?’ Ang sagot sa akin ni Tita Malou, ‘Ako naniniwala ako na kaya mo.’ So parang ‘yun ang kinapitan ko, nung naniwala sa akin si Tita Malou eh bakit ko ida-doubt ang sarili ko. So ‘yun, nag-yes ako,” Panganiban added.

(I’m serious about considering if I will be seen as a mother [to Daniel]. So, I asked Mrs. Malou Santos of Star Cinema. I said, ‘Is it believable?’ her answer to me was, ‘I believe that you can.’ So that’s what I held on to, when Mrs. Malou believed in me. Why will I doubt myself? So, I said yes.)

‘Pangako Sa’Yo’s pilot episode will air on May 25 after ‘TV Patrol.’
