After a year’s worth of hard work, some of the Kapuso stars look back on the moments wherein they felt really fulfilled. They cherish these moments and make them a source of motivation for their future endeavors.

What is the most memorable thing that happened in your life this year?

Director Louie Ignacio: “This year, the production of my first Cinemalaya film, Asintado. Yun ‘yung Cinemalaya X na pumasok akong Top 5 sa Director’s Showcase, that’s very memorable because it’s my dream na at least mapasok ko yung indie. Also, the production of my second indie advocacy film, Child House, and of course, meeting with the Pope — ‘yung kanyang conclave at the Vatican.”

Director Mark Reyes: “Having to direct four shows for GMA all at the same time and managed to be the No. 1 daytime soap have certainly made my 2014 a memorable one.”

Alden Richards: “The projects I received from GMA because they’re really ground-breaking for me, (as they came) at an early stage in showbiz, for three years and a half. Yung Ilustrado, Bet ng Bayan and Carmela were my biggest breaks on GMA and I’m really happy that I was able to, kahit papano, give justice to the roles given to me and I’m really thankful.”

Donita Rose: “Definitely, Basta Everyday Happy is one of my happiest gifts and the people here. I really look forward to every single taping. On air, it is a good job, but off air, we’re having so much fun, it’s crazy.”

Andrea Torres: “This year, na-overwhelm talaga ako sa FHM, one of the biggest blessings in my life this year. It’s something I didn’t expect to happen in my career. Sobrang career ‘yung diet, gym and everything so it’s nice pala kapag mayroon kang ginagawa na natatakot kang gawin pero ang ganda ng resulta. Because of that, I realized that if you put hard work to every project that you do, and if you pray, the results will be good.”

Mikael Daez: “The most memorable thing was the birth of my baby brother, baby Alvaro, the ninth in the family.”

Rochelle Pangilinan: “My family and Art (Arthur Solinap) get along very well. Nagsimula naman ‘yun nung nagsimula ‘yung relasyon namin. Pero ngayon, mas intense at masaya.”

Enzo Pineda: “The most memorable thing that I’ll never forget is when I got into running marathons and doing aquathlons. It totally changed my lifestyle and mindset into something more positive.”

LJ Reyes: “I got a really pretty challenging project right on my birth month!”

Renz Fernandez: “The most memorable thing that happened in my life this year is when I was given the privilege to work here and meet various individuals who share the same passion for creating.”

Yasmien Kurdi: “When I had a surgery to remove a cyst in my throat, it was memorable kasi akala ko mawawalan na ko ng boses, akala ko hindi na ko makakabalik sa career ko. It was really a nightmare. Then I regained my voice and it was a big blessing. Talagang malalaman mo that God is always there for you.”

Kris Bernal: “Two most memorable things that happened in my life this 2014: My current primetime soap Hiram na Alaala and the friendship we have there. I also treasure my first trip to Japan with my family.”

Barbie Forteza: “I won the Cinemalaya Gawad Balanghay Award for Best Supporting Actress for the film Mariquina (New Breed Category). And of course, the indefinite extension of our ongoing Afternoon Prime series, The Half Sisters.”

Rocco Nacino: “Lovi’s (Lovi Poe) sweet ‘Yes.’”

Marc Justine Alvarez: “It was when I received the Best Breakthrough Performance By An Actor award at the Golden Screen Awards.”

Jeric Gonzales: “The most memorable thing that happened in my life this year was when I became part of an indie film. Pinaghirapan ko talaga at nag-audition ako for the role. I was very lucky because the lead star of the movie was the one and only superstar, Ms. Nora Aunor, and it was shot in Batanes.”

Thea Tolentino: “My debut because I spent the whole day with my family and friends.”

Kabado sila noong una, kasi sexy nga. E, dati puro wholesome ang ginagawa ko. But GMA assured them na aalagaan ako and there’ll be nothing indecent, so ngayon excited na sila.”

On how she prepared for her role:

“Physically, I have to exercise to make sure I’m in the right shape. Also, may sensuality workshop ako with my leading men, Mikael Daez and Pancho Magno, kasi may love scenes daw. So kailangan maganda ang bonding namin.”

“Magpakailanman” features ‘Transman: The Nil Nodalo Story’ this Saturday!

Transman. Pinanganak na may kasarian ng babae, pero kinikilala ang sarili na isang lalaki.

Kung unti-unti nang natatanggap ang mga bakla at tomboy, may puwang na rin ba ang mga transgendered at transsexual na matanggap rin ng mga tao? Ito ang magiging tanong ni Nil Nodalo sa kanyang paglaki.

 andrea

Mula pagkabata, alam na ni Marie Nodalo (Sabrina Mann) na iba siya sa mga ka-edarang babae. Hindi siya mahilig mag-ayos, at ang hilig niya ay ang makipag-baril-barilan sa mga kaibigang lalaki. Pero makukumpirma ni Marie na iba siya talaga nang umibig siya sa kapwa niya babae.

Hindi man tinanggap ng unang niligawan, nalinawan at natanggap na ni Marie na hindi siya babae; kaya magde-desisyon siyang maging si Nil.

Tanggap man ng barkada, isang taong malapit sa puso ni Nil ang hindi alam kung paano haharapin ang katotohanang ito: ang ina niya.

Sa simula ay hahayaan lang ng ina ang ginagawa ng anak, hoping na mawawala rin ito sa isip ni Nil sa kaniyang pagtanda. Pero nang magkaroon ng girlfriend si Nil na tanggap kung ano ang kasarian niya, unti-unting nawalan ng pag-asa ang ina ni Nil.

Lalakas naman ang paniniwala ni Nil na matatanggap nga ng mga tao ang tulad niya: babae ang katawan, pero lalaki ang damdamin.

Hanggang sa ihiwalay sa kaniya ang babaeng minamahal. Hanggang sa maging ang nanay niya ay tumalikod na sa kaniya.

Ito na nga ba ang buhay na gugustuhin ni Nil? Magagawa ba niyang panindigan ang isinisigaw ng puso’t saloobin? O, para muling mahalin ng mga taong minamahal, susundin na lang ba niya ang dikta ng komunidad?

Alamin ang kanyang kuwento ngayong Sabado sa Magpakailanman, pagkatapos ng Vampire ang Daddy Ko.

“Transman: The Nil Nodalo Story” features Andrea Torres, Mike Tan, and Sabrina Mann sa kanilang natatanging pagganap bilang si Nil Nodalo. Kasama rin sa cast sina Dion Ignacio, Rhen Escano at si Miss Sharmaine Arnaiz. The episode was researched by Gel Launo, written by Obet Villela, and directed by Dominic Zapata.

According to the data gathered by the more widely recognized TV ratings supplier, Nielsen TV Audience Measurement, Sana Ay Ikaw Na Nga (SAINN) marked an average household tv rating of 15.1% against its competing program Kung Ikaw ay Iiwan Mo which only gathered an average of 10.1% from September 3 to November 16, 2012 based on nationwide data.

For the period November 19, 2012 to January 25, 2013 (January 20-25 based on overnight data), SAINN also went ahead of the rival network’s newly launched program PHR Paraiso. SAINN registered a commanding average tv rating of 15.1% while the competing program only scored an average of 8.7%.

Sana Ay Ikaw Na Nga was also ahead of its competitors in the viewer-rich areas of Urban Luzon and Mega Manila.

Mikael shares that having his first lead teledrama is one of the highlights of his career. “I will surely miss portraying the character of Carlos Miguel. It opened so many doors for me and I’ll be forever thankful to all the people who supported me and Sana Ay Ikaw Na Nga” he added.

Meanwhile, Andrea gets emotional knowing that SAINN is on its finale week. “Nakakalungkot man na matatapos na yung programa na minahal namin at ng mga manonood, natutuwa naman ako na sobrang tinutukan ang aming programa at nangunguna pa sa ratings. Kaya taos-puso kaming nagpapasalamat sa lahat ng naging bahagi ng buhay nina Carlos Miguel at Cecilia.”

Don’t miss the much awaited finale week of Sana Ay Ikaw Na Nga after Yesterday’s Bride on GMA’s Afternoon Prime.
