The former “Pure Love” star Alex Gonzaga said that she is excited to reprise the iconic title role of Diamond Star Maricel Soriano in the TV remake of 1985 hit film “Inday Bote.”
In a press conference for her upcoming movie “The Amazing Praybeyt Benjamin,” the Kapamilya actress and host said that she is pressured and at the same time excited to work for the project.
“Ano na lang more than the pressure and more than kabahan, excited kami. 1985 pa siya, ‘tapos ire-remake after 30 years. ‘Di ko kasi naiisip pa, ‘di pa nagsi-sink in siguro. Pero nung sinabi sa akin ni Sir Deo [Endrinal] yun, parang ‘di ko nga alam, e, ‘A, okay po, ako po ba ang gagawa?'” she said.
Alex Gonzaga also said that she was humbled by the offer to do the remake since there a lot of artists in ABS-CBN and the management chose her. She also admitted that it would be hard for her being compared to Maricel Soriano.
“It’s very humbling kasi kung iisipin mo sa lahat, sa dami ng artista dito sa ABS, ikaw ang nabigyan ng pagkakataon. Tapos yung ire-remake ko pa yung movie ng Diamond Star, Maricel Soriano. Ang hirap din nun kasi yung magiging comparison,” she added.
Alexa Gonzaga will be joined by kapamilya actor Matteo Guidicelli and Kean Cipriano. The production has yet to announce the target premiere date of the upcoming fantasy series.
Meanwhile, it was previously reported that Alexa Ilacad, who currently stars in the top-rating series “Bagito” with Nash Aguas, will be playing the title role of “Inday Bote.”
