Looking back on La Vida Lena’s successful run as iWantTFC’s most watched series, Erich Gonzales said doing lock-in taping for the family drama was more than worth it for her and the cast.

“Kakaibang experience pero masaya siya. Pag nasa lock-in kayo, kayo kayo lang yan. Sa simula pa lang ng araw at pag mag-e-end. Basta ang pinaka i-chi-cherish ko na lang talaga siguro is yung samahan na binuo namin. Talagang naging pamilya kami kasi it’s different. Shinoot namin yun nitong pandemic. Pero worth it lahat ng pagod namin lahat dahil kahit na magtatapos tayo may nakapagsabi na consistent na number one yungLa Vida Lena sa iWantTFC so we’re very grateful. Yung pakiramdam ko ngayon siguro lahat naman pag andiyan na yung end may lungkot but siguro nangingibabaw yung pagiging mas grateful namin kasi simula nung nag-air yung La Vida Lena nandun yung suporta nila. Talang sinubaybayan nila at pinanuod nila kahit na medyo late na. So grateful ako dun,” Erich shared during the La Vida Lena finale media conference last January 31.

For her role as Lena, Erich said she really wanted to make the character unique and did not base it from any other inspiration.

“Wala naman basta para sa akin, aralin lang yung script and yung role talaga. Siyempre nandiyan yung mga directors natin para gabayan kami. Ang challenge siguro kung paano mag-iiba yung performance ko dito sa La Vida Lena dun sa last project na nagawa ko. She’s like me in a way na Magdalena, yung pagmamahal niya sa mga tao importante sa kanya. Pero different kami siguro dahil I am not vengeful. Ang importante lang kung ano yung itinatanim natin sa loob natin kumbaga kasi yun din yung mag-fo-flourish so might as well puro kabutihan na lang dapat. I know walang perpekto sa mundo, pero given the chance puro kabutihan na lang sana. Forgive not for anyone but for yourself talaga. Kasi ikaw rin naman ang mahihirapan niyan eh if meron kang tinatanim na grudge or hatred,” she explained.

During the La Vida Lena finale mediacon, the 31-year-old actress also shared what was good and bad about her role.

“Bago naman nangyari lahat ng trahedya sa buhay ni Lena, pinakita na she’s very kindhearted and she always sees the good in people. Talagang masasabi ko na selfless siya. And yung negative lang siguro dahil sa lahat ng nangyari sa kanya, kumbaga napuno siya ng hatred. Kinain na siya ng galit at poot na to the point na nakakagawa na siya ng mga bagay na hindi na niya naiisip na nakakasakit na pala siya. Hindi lang sa sarili kundi pati sa mga tao sa paligid niya. Marami lessons yang show. Pero siguro ngayon na last week na ng La Vida Lena ang pinaka-importante talaga is forgiveness. Nagsimula ang lahat sa pagmamahal, ang dami ng nangyari but at the end of the day yung realization diyan parang forgiveness talaga eh. Kasi it’s a gift also that you give yourself. To finally have that peace. Lahat ng ginagawa natin meron yang balik,” she explained.

When asked for her secret to being beautiful inside and out, Erich shared why she has no secret. “Wala namang sikreto diyan basta mapayapa lang yung pamumuhay mo. Para sa akin, protect your space, your energy, your peace. And when it comes to insecurities, nobody in this world naman is perfect di ba and I think that’s what makes us human. So siguro self-acceptance and embracing your imperfections and flaws,” she added.
