Beginning April 30, GMA Network spreads magic to its viewers with the launch of the kid-friendly, family-oriented show Daig Kayo Ng Lola Ko.
Aiming to shape children’s values through its stories, the show narrates the magical adventures of Lola Goreng, played by Ms. Gloria Romero, and her grandchildren Alice and Elvis, portrayed by Jillian Ward and David Remo who find themselves living with Moira, a child who they found on the streets, portrayed by Chlaui Malayao. Adding more magic to their story is Jorrel played by Julius Miguel.
Tagged as the “millennial lola” because of her previous roles, Ms. Gloria Romero is very pleased with the Network’s trust on her. “I’m flattered kasi ako ay kinuha ulit sa ganitong klaseng concept na show. Who would have thought that at my age, I will play a role of a fairy, ‘di ba? It’s nice because light lang yung ginagawa namin. Ang cute, kasi nag-eenjoy ako.”
In addition, she commends how the kids show their love for their craft. “Sa totoo lang, itong mga batang kasama ko dito, ang gagaling. I can see their passion in acting. Minsan nahihiya nga ako kasi ako yung madalas magkamali. Sila, they can deliver their dialogues right away. Alam nila agad yung lines nila. They come to the set prepared. So, ako, nahihiya ako whenever nagkakamali ako,” she says.
On the other hand, the kids are all smiles as they share their working relationship with the veteran actress.
Jillian said that she is inspired with her stories, especially when it comes to work. “Tuwing break po namin sa set, nakakatuwa yung stories ni Ms. Gloria kasi makakahanap ka talaga dun ng inspiration para mas pagbutihan mo pa yung work mo,” the Kapuso child actress said.
While David states Ms. Gloria’s playful side, “Si Lola, nakakatuwa kasi makulit din siya at nakikipagbiruan sa amin. ”
Meanwhile, Chlaui says she is overwhelmed with the simplicity and kindness of Ms. Gloria. “Nung una, nahihiya ako sa kanya pero super bait niya and simple sa maraming bagay.”
Julius Miguel, however, says it is his dream come true to finally work with Tita Gloria. “I am amazed na naka-work ko na siya kasi dati nababasa ko lang siya sa magazines and napapanood sa movies. Kaya I’m very happy every taping namin.”
Under the helm of Direk Rico Gutierrez and creative leadership of its concept creator Agnes Gagelonia Uligan, Daig Kayo Ng Lola Ko will showcase different stories filled with values and lessons depicted in a playful manner that children and adults alike will love. The show will also feature celebrity guests and will have no less than Kapuso Primetime Queen Marian Rivera-Dantes as the special guest for its pilot episode.
Witness magical Sundays with Daig Kayo Ng Lola Ko every Sunday beginning April 30 on GMA.
