I've always had high regards to story lines that include grandmas. As someone who had experienced the love of my grandma, I always reminisce how she would always make time telling stories about history, the war torn years in the Philippines and what they did to survive. When I was a kid, she told me a bunch of stories that included mythical creatures, fables, commonly seen in English literature which made my interest flourish during those days and kept me love the language even more. I haven't really touched Philippine folklore (or fantasy) or anything like it aside from the ones I've learned in school, so this new program from GMA would definitely change the way Filipino kids, and not so kids alike to know more about it today.
Daig Kayo ng Lola Ko stars the grand dame of Philippine Cinema Ms. Gloria Romero (who plays Lola Goreng), childstars Jillian Ward (who plays Alice), David Remo (who plays Elvis), Chlaui Malayao (who plays Moira) and Julius Miguel (who plays Jorell). They'll be part of the cast who will tell the story and of course, tell you about the lessons you can learn with every episode. This will be part of GMA Sunday Grande Sa Gabe (at night).
Ms. Gloria Romero says "I'm glad to have been gotten to play this role, who would have thought that at this age I'd play a fairy right? This is very light, very cute and I'm really enjoying it! The kids that I'm with in this project are super good so I do have to come prepared to the set because they already know their lines."
Jillian Ward adds "I really love how Ms. Gloria shares her stories and you can really pickup a lot of lessons when she takes time to talk to us in between takes. You would eagerly want to do good in your work after having conversations with her."
This pilot week, they will have Kapuso Primetime Queen Marian Rivera guesting on their show. It starts this Sunday on GMA's evening primetime block. Get the updates about this show on Facebook.com/GMANetwork and www.gmanetwork.com today!
