Sylvia Sanchez admits becoming more forgetful after doing ‘The Greatest Love’


During the introduction of her film Hesusa which is competing in the 2019 Sinag Maynila film festival next month, Sylvia Sanchez admitted she is still having a hard time detaching from her role as matriarch Gloria from the 2017 series The Greatest Love. “Kasi yung utak ko dun kailangan ko mag-off konti ng utak ko eh para ma-portray ko si Gloria. Kasi in-embrace ko 100% si Gloria eh na hanggang ngayon nakakalimot ako,” she admitted.

Sylvia said she did intensive immersion for her role as a mother suffering from Alzheimer’s disease. “Kasi hindi niyo alam, ang easy ko lang ginawa si Gloria pero sa nine months ini-ere yun seven months na every weekend nandun ako sa isang lugar ng mga may Alzheimer’s. So that’s every week for seven days ginagawa ko yun para may guide ako. Ngayon, hindi ko kaya i-portray yun na totally gising na gising totally yung lahat ng utak ko. Meron akong konting part ng utak ko na I shut off. Para lumabas na believable yung Gloria. Akala ko easy lang sa akin na bumalik yung in-off ko pero until now, minsan sabi ko kailangan ko magpahinga,” she shared.

Even after almost two years, Sylvia said she is still feeling the effects of her character immersion. “Sana magawa ko kasi pag sinasabi kong magpapahinga ako meron at merong dumarating eh. Dati ultimo yung dialogue ng kapwa ko artista ultimo yung period, yung mga exclamation point alam ko yun. Ngayon may part yung utak ko na nakakalimot kasi yun yung in-off ko na part ng brain ko na akala ko mabilis mabalik dahil mabilis ko na-off. Ngayon ang hirap ibalik. So minsan dumadating ako sa point na, ‘Lord, please huwag niyo hayaan dumating sa point na mawala yung memorization ko, yung utak kong ganun kabilis mag-memorya.’ iaffected talaga yun sobra,” she said.

The talented actress said she wants to seek medical help already to remedy her condition. “Actually yun nga naghahanap na ako ngayon. Kailangan ko ma-release kasi nadadala ko yun so kailangan tanggalin ko yun,” she added.
