After playing the role of medical student Diana in the primetime series The Broken Marriage Vow, actress Jane Oineza said she really made sure to do her role well in the Philippine adaptation of the hit BBC series Doctor Foster.
“Yes of course there was pressure kasi grabe din yung weight ng project na ito and kung paano natin gagawin na sariling atin. But ang laking tulong na meron ding vision sila direk and the whole production kung ano yung gusto nilang mangyari.
“It was more on talking to them, collaborating with them. And it helped na parang meron kaming general assembly before kami sumalang para ma-inject ko rin yung sarili kong mga experiences into Diane and creating her. Para hindi rin gayang gaya dun sa mga na remake na.
“So every time na tutungtong ng set, I just make sure na talagang na-study na yung gagawin namin. Para alam na namin yung mga characters namin by heart,” she said.
With the show nearing its finale episode on June 24, Jane shared the many unforgettable memories she collected while doing lock-in taping for the show.
“Hala ang dami (laughs). Kasi ang tanggal din namin sa Baguio ng walang uwian. Usually kasi cycle 1 and then break, cycle 2 then break. Kami isang diretso kaming nasa Baguio. One long cycle kami so ang tagal naming magkakasama. Ang raming nangyari.
“At saka ang dami ko talagang memories. Every rest day namin we have a sportsfest. Kasi yung accommodation namin in Baguio, yung top floor meron nung una net lang hanggang sa padami ng padami nagkakaroon ng mga racket, may Ping-pong table. So nagsimula yun na kami ni Sue (Ramirez) hindi kami marunong masyado mag-Ping-Pong. Tapos lagi lang, ‘Tara, laro tayo.’ Hanggang sa paglabas na namin ng Baguio ang galing na namin (laughs). Tapos every rest day may sportsfest, may volleyball, may badminton. May sarili kaming Star Magic Games (laughs).”
Aside from working with a fun production, the 25-year-old actress admitted that her character also taught her a lot about the importance of self-love.
“As Diane, siguro yung pagiging on and off din nila ni Enzo, yung toxic relationship that they have and more on learning to love herself and unahin yung sarili niya and what she needs and learning to let go of someone that you love kasi hindi talaga kayo swak or hindi niyo nalalabas yung best nila sa isa’t isa.
“Thankful ako na kung saan siya sa simula, iba na siya nung natapos itong show. Nag-grow siya as a person. Natuto siya from doc Jill, from her mistakes and her choices, and natapos siya na a better person and I’m proud of her and lahat ng pinagdaanan niya,” she explained.
