Although she originally planned to spend more time with her family this summer, Dawn Zulueta said she has no problem going back to work via ABS-CBN’s upcoming teleserye, Bukas Na Lang Kita Mamahalin. It was definitely a kind of project she didn’t want to say no to. “Ang laking pasasalamat ko sa asawa ko kasi naiintindihan niya. Kasi siyempre prinomise ko nga sa kanya yun. Malay ko ba naman na after Walang Hanggan biglang nagkaroon ng ganitong klaseng opportunity. 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 in an interview with Push.com.ph.
The beautiful actress further shared that the writers of the soap have already made adjustments for her role as Gerald Anderson’s mom in the story. The role was originally for Maricel Soriano who later left the show due to the controversy involving the young actor. “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.” Other cast members of the show include Cristine Reyes, Rayver Cruz, Diana Zubiri, Tonton Gutierrez, and Dina Bonnevie.
When asked if there are any updates about her supposed movie with Richard Gomez, Dawn maintained that there are no final details yet about the project. “Right now we are under negotiation with Star Cinema. I think naman it will happen.”
In the meantime, she’s excited about her guest appearance in Vice Ganda’s upcoming concert at the Big Dome. The comedian-host was the one who coined the phrase “i-Dawn Zulueta mo ako” when she was a guest on Gandang Gabi Vice early this year. “Hindi ko pa alam kung anong gagawin ko [na something new for the audience]. We’ll see. I am excited about it.”
