Known for playing the role of the sweet girl-next-door Cassie in last year’s afternoon soap Kadenang Ginto, Francine Diaz admitted she was excited to be doing a role reversal with co-star Andrea Brillantes in Huwag Kang Mangamba.

“Yung na-feel ko nung nalaman ko na dito ako yung kabaliktaran nung role ni Cassie, ako naman dito yung bida kontrabida. Unang una sa lahat, sobrang thankful and sobrang natutuwa rin kasi isa ito sa dream role ko na gusto ko magawa. And nakakatuwa kasi nakakapag-explore ako bilang artista and nakikilala ko pa ng mas maigi yung sarili ko bilang artista, kung hanggang saan yung kaya ko at hindi ko kaya,” she shared during the Huwag Kang Mangamba mediacon held last March 15.

Starring in the newest Dreamscape drama series along with her fellow Gold Squad members Andrea, Kyle Echarri, and Seth Fedelin is a big blessing for Francine who made her ABS-CBN debut in the 2015 teleserye Pasion de Amor where she played the role of a young Ellen Adarna.

“Siyempre sobrang thankful ako kasi baguhan lang ako dito tapos grabe yung nabibigay sa akin na mga opportunity and lalo na itong Gold Squad at Huwag Kang Mangamba. Kasi sobrang laki ng improvement kasi napapansin yun from Kadenang Ginto as in wala talaga akong alam. tapos dahil sa Dreamscape, dahil sa mga nabibigay nila sa akin na mga project, mas natututo ako sa mga katrabaho kong artista lalo na dito sa Huwag Kang Mangamba. Sobrang blessed naming apat na ang daming opportunity and projects na nabibigay sa amin,” she said.

For her role as the rebellious and outspoken Joy Cordero in Huwag Kang Mangamba, Francine said she really made sure to make it different from her hugely popular role in Kadenang Ginto.

“Siguro yung preparations ko lang para sa role ko dito is kapag binibigay yung script sa amin talagang inaaral ko yung eksena na nandun ako tapos iaarte ko yun sa salamin. Ang tagal ko rin kasing ginampanan si Cassie kaya nasanay ako sa kanya and gusto ko rin ipakita na talagang si Joy iba na siya kay Cassie,” she added.
