Newest Kapamilya actor Vin Abrenica will act opposite actress Jessy Mendiola in an episode of Maalala Mo Kaya this Saturday, June 10.
“It’s my dream, of course. Dati nakikita ko lang siya sa pictures, sa Instagram. Tapos nakikita ko lang ‘yung mga videos niya. Ngayon, hindi ako makapaniwala na makakapartner ko siya for that, sa MMK,” he said about Jessy, adding that she is one of the people that he wants to work with.
Sharing that he used to just watch the drama anthology with his family on television, he feels overwhelmed to become part of an episode. “Nalaman ko pa na this is the 25th year so sobrang special para sa akin. Nakakaoverwhelm,” he said, although truthfully admitting that he got scared at first.
“Kasi MMK, napakalaki ng expectations tapos nalaman kong anniversary pa so solid na pinag-aralan ko talaga ‘yung script. Hindi ako nakatulog. Totoo ‘yun na dire-diretso ako sa taping pero everything’s worth it,” he said, adding that the episode director Jerry Lopez-Sineneng also guided him.
Talking about what the story is about, Vin said that he will play the role of a band vocalist who falls in love with the character of Jessy. Noting that his character encountered a lot of temptations, “Iniwan ko siya ng walang closure. Napaka-good soul ng babae, nagtayo siya ng sarili niyang business, nagtayo siya ng sariling niyang pagkakakitaan na naging successful.”
