Critically acclaimed actress Dawn Zulueta will play the role of Gerard Anderson‘s mom in ABS-CBN‘s upcoming teleserye Bukas Na Lang Kita Mamahalin.
The said role was originally intended for Maricel Soriano. The Diamond Star was replaced due to the controversy that involved a shouting incident with Anderson.
“I felt that I didn’t want to turn down naman my home network. Anytime na kinailangan nila ako, I didn’t want to say sorry I’m not ready. After all sila rin naman ang nagpabongga ng career ko nung binigay nila sa akin yung Walang Hanggan,” Dawn said.
“Parang inadjust nila ng konti. Tama yung sinasabi ni Sir Deo (Endrinal) dahil nagbago ng actress they need to kind of tailor fit it also. Kasi I feel comfortable naman. When I read the lines kumportable naman ako. I don’t feel naman na, ‘Ay, parang hindi naman ata ‘yan character ko.’ Masaya sa set. Director namin si Jerome Pobocan and Trina Dayrit who’s with us before sa Walang Hanggan. Enjoy kami. Pondo lang kami ng pondo ng episodes,” she added.
