After transferring to the network last April, actress Sunshine Dizon said she is happy that her first teleserye as a kapamilya Marry Me, Marry You will finally be shown starting this month.
“Actually, wala naman akong hiniling. When direk Deo (Edrinal) spoke with my manager parang I felt that it was a breather and it was very refreshing to do something different naman coming from years of doing heavy, heavy drama. Parang na-excite ako na iba naman for a change and hindi pa masyado nakikita ng mga tao itong side ko. So I’m just very thankful that it was offered to me,” she said.
The 38-year-old actress, who plays one of Janine Gutierrez’s three godmothers on the show, said she was able to bond closely with her co-stars like Cherry Pie Picache and Vina Morales.
“We’ve really bonded well. Parang months pa lang pero parang ang tagal tagal na naming lahat na magkakakilala. Siguro what I have learned from the younger ones is siguro to let loose and not be too serious, to not be so stiff and just have fun. Parang yun yung nakuha ko sa kanila. It’s just so nice to see yung combined effort not only from the actors but also from the whole staff, from the whole team. Nakita mo kasi na minahal namin yung ginagawa namin and it shows onscreen so congratulations and thank you everyone for all your effort,” she said.
During the grand mediacon for Marry Me, Marry You, Sunshine was asked to share her views on divorce since she plays a single mother on the show. In real life, Sunshine has been separated from her non-showbiz husband Timothy with whom she has two kids.
“Napaka plastic ko naman kung sasabihin kong marriage is forever kasi hindi naman totoo (laughs). For me, I’m speaking for myself ‘no. Gusto ko yung divorce kasi it’s normal for people to fall out of love. That is part of life so bakit natin hindi bibigyan ng pagkakataon yung mga tao na gusto mag start anew? Kailangan ba talagang meron psychological reason or something drastic na dahilan para alng maghiwalay yung dalawang tao? Minsan talagang hindi na talaga sila para sa isa’t isa so I hope the laws will push through regarding divorce here in the Philippines so that magkaroon naman ng freedom naman yung mga tao para magmahal ulit, magsimula ulit. So that’s my take on it,” she explained.
