Amy Austria-Ventura says it was Lorna Tolentino who convinced her to do 'Minsan Lang Kita Iibigin'


Amy Austria-Ventura shared that she is having a great time on the set of her new teleserye Minsan Lang Kita Iibigin. “Napakasaya sa set. Para lang kaming naglalaro. Pero siyempre ‘pag action na seryoso kami lahat. Pagsigaw naman ng cut ng direktor, enjoy uli kami.” The primetime series, which is scheduled to premiere on March 7, also stars Lorna Tolentino, John Estrada, Tonton Gutierrez, Maja Salvador, Andi Eigenmann, and Coco Martin.

This project marks Amy’s return to acting after a four-year hiatus. Her last teleserye was ABS-CBN’s Walang Kapalit top-billed by Piolo Pascual and Claudine Barretto. So why did the award-winning veteran actress decided to take a break from showbiz? “I chose to stop. Gusto ko lang magpahinga. Sabi ko one year lang. Pero na enjoy ko, hanggang naging two years… three… tapos, four years na pala akong hindi umaarte. Naisip ko nga kung babalik pa ako. Plain housewife lang ako nun.” Amy is married to businessman Duke Ventura.

It was after she got a call from Lorna Tolentino abo
