Along with a sneak peek of her call slip for the show, Pokwang shared that she already had to do a dramatic scene during the first day of their taping. An excerpt of her caption reads:
“unang eksena iyak agad agaaadddd??? [sic] haaaa…. summer be? ang init nameenn…”
This isn’t the first time that the celebrity mom would star in the drama anthology series, however. Once in 2004, she starred in the “Teddy Bear” episode as Pokwang herself. Next off was “Laruan” in 2008, in which she played the role of Rita. Three years after that, in 2011, she did “Singsing” and “Certificate,” taking on the characters of Tita B. Canoy and Carol Araos, respectively.
In later years, Pokwang returned in “Maalaala Mo Kaya” in 2013 as Linda for “Gown“. Only a year after, in 2014, she starred in two episodes “Arroz Caldo” and “Alak” as Mely and Lui, respectively.
Meanwhile, thousands of fans and followers rejoiced at the news of Pokwang’s television comeback.
“Such a meaningful and relevant comeback for you Ms. @itspokwang27 Congrats and good luck!”
“I love you ate @itspokwang27 manonood ako nyan dahil pag ikaw ang gumanap pag drama, drama talaga. Pag comedy, comedy talaga.”
“Congratulations Pokwang! Looking forward to watch the episode”
Prior to this project, the 47-year-old star was a mainstay for “FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano” and “Banana Sundae“, until she became pregnant last year.
