Dawn Zulueta expressed her gratitude to all the avid followers of Walang Hanggan for making it a top-rating teleserye for the last nine months. With its successful conclusion this week, she said that she’ll surely miss working with the whole cast and staff behind the show.
“Nakita talaga namin kung gaano kadami ang supporters at kung gaano nila kami kamahal. Maraming-maraming salamat po from the bottom of our heart. We have our writers, producers, we're really thankful dahil kaming mga artista umaasa lang din sa kanila kung anong ibibigay nila sa amin sa script. Pero it was a joyful collaboration,” she said in an interview with Push.com.ph.
What’s more surprising though is that her onscreen reunion with Richard Gomez has gained a huge fan-base as well. In fact, their supporters—known as CharDawn penguins—were the most prepared during Walang Hanggan’s thanksgiving concert at the Araneta Coliseum last week. They even used their concert light sticks to form the word “CharDawn” in the upper box area to show their support for the tandem. “Oo nga nakakatuwa. Chardawn penguins thank you so much! Hindi talaga namin yun inaasahan [na tatangkilikin ang tandem namin ni Richard] pero since nandito na rin lang, we’re really enjoying it. We’re so grateful to all the fans for their support.”
Given a chance, Dawn said she’s open to doing another project with Richard. “Absolutely! Basta okay ang schedule, siya lang inaantay natin.” She also believed that doing kissing scenes with Richard won’t be a problem as long as it’s required in the story. Just like in Walang Hanggan, they eventually acquiesced to do a love scene during the latter part of the soap. “Siguro naman. Depende na lang sa storya. Kami naman kasi sinundan lang namin ang storya e. Kung kinakailangan siyempre.”
Dawn further shared that their respective partners understand that they’re just doing it for the sake of work. “Alam naman natin siLucy (Torres) ever since [supportive naman siya]. But I think my husband also [understands].” As for her kiss with Richard during theWalang Hanggan thanksgiving concert, Dawn explained that she didn’t do it again when the fans requested it for the second time out of respect for her husband. “Oo nga, si Kris Aquino mismo ang nag-request. Nakakagulat. Oo [nung na-request ulit yungaudience sinabi ko nun na baka mag-explain ako sa ombudsman] kasi baka kumota na e,” she added with a laugh.
