Mutya Orquia has made her showbiz comeback via ABS-CBN's Mars Ravelo's Darna: The TV Series.
The former child star plays the role of Tricia, who is one of the classmates of Ding which is portrayed by Zaijian Jaranilla.
In an interview with Star Magic Inside News, Mutya said that she is excited to work again with Zaijian.
"Na-excite po ako lalo na makaka-work ko ulit si Zaijian kasi nagka-work na kasi kami before at tsaka masaya," she said.
Since this is her acting comeback, Mutya shared that she is still shy on the set but Zaijian inspired her to be more vocal.
"Alam niyo ba mas naging vocal din ako sa mga naiisip ko pagdating sa character kasi super talaga siya, like magsasalita talaga siya if may suggestion siya. Ako kasi ano ako takot ako eh, parang nahihiya ako," she stated.
When asked how Zaijian assisted her on the set of the series especially that Darna is her acting comeback, Mutya replied, "Since naninibago pa ako sa productions, sa mga kasama, ganyan, mas napadali kasi nakikipag-communicate siya, nagbibigay siya ng advice din."
Zaijian relayed that they also discussed how to portray their characters on set.
"Siyempre parang lock in [taping] naman kami di ba, so kailangan niyo mag-usap kung paano i-work out 'yung characters," Zaijian said.
When asked if their characters will be a love team in the series, Zaijian responded, "Siguro titingnan na lang natin, ipapakita natin sa mga tao kung ano magiging path nina Ding and Tricia."
Mutya started her showbiz career as a child star.
She was part of the comedy program Goin' Bulilit which Zaijian was also part of. She also became part of the morning drama series Be Careful With My Heart, My Binondo Girl, and Nasaan Ka Elisa, among others.
