It has been 20 years since Tabing Ilog hit our television screens. A lot of fans of the show have been suggesting for it to have a remake. Push asked Kaye, who played the character of Eds in the show, to comment who she thinks will best to portray the characters if a remake would happen.
“Maraming pwedeng gumanap kasi ang daming magagaling na artista na ngayon na bago. But siguro kung pwede sana ‘yung grupo na magkaka-barkada talaga. Importante kasi ‘yung bonding ng magkakaibigan para lumabas na natural on screen na magkaka-barkada talaga sila so kahit sino siguro,” she stated.
Kaye said that she is open to reprise her role as Eds if given the opportunity. “Lagi ko kayang sinasabi na bakit hindi i-reunion, na kahit isang episode lang? Sabi ko nga kahit MMK special na Tabing Ilog na episode, kung ano na ‘yung buhay nila ngayon na bilang lahat kami may anak na, na ito ‘yung nangyari sa buhay nila Eds, Rovick, George, lahat. Kung sino na ang nagka-anak, kung nagkatuluyan ba itong mga characters na ‘to. Parang masaya lang siyang mapanood kahit one episode lang, kahit special lang, kahit Sunday’s Best,” she stated.
With the influx of new stars in show business, Kaye was asked about the advice she could give to the country’s new actors. She said, “Huwag magmadali. Be patient. Hindi pwedeng kapag nagsimula ka bida ka kaagad. Di pwedeng ‘pag nagsimula ka makikilala ka kaagad. Di pwedeng pa-diva sa set. You always have to be on time, you have to be professional, you have to love your job."
Tabing Ilog will soon be streaming on iWant.
