JASMINE Curtis Smith says that although “Pamilya Roces” will have its last telecast tonight, it will always be memorable for her. “Siyempre kasi ito ang very first assignment ko after I transferred to GMA and I really enjoyed doing it because naging maganda ang bonding namin ng lahat ng mga kasama ko sa show,” she says. “We didn’t have any problems at all while taping the show for more than three months.”
Someone quips it’s probably smooth sailing all throughout because they’re all scared of their director, Joel Lamangan. “I think hindi naman dahil sa natatakot kami sa kanya kundi more because we really respect him. Malaking factor din 'yung maganda ang work ethic ng bawat isa sa amin kaya nagkasundo agad kaming lahat from the start.”
Carla Abellana adds that you’d be scared of Direk Joel only if you’re doing something hanky-panky on the set. “Ang totoo, dahil we’re a big ensemble cast, madalas na kapag magkakasama kaming lahat, mas masaya sa taping. We’re also more of the same age ng mga gumanap na kapatid ko rito at nagkakasundo talaga ang mga hilig namin and interest.”
As for Sophie Albert who plays the funny Amber, she admits she immediately felt comfortable with her co-stars. “I think nag-jive well lang talaga kaming lahat. I feel na chill lang kami and we are all very happy to be working together. Direk Joel is strict but we all appreciate the way he works and I think I can speak for everyone by saying that we will all really miss working under him.”
What is the most important insight or life lesson they gained from doing the show?
Jasmine: “That whatever happens, blood is really thicker than water. Kapag pamilya, pamilya talaga at nandiyan kayo lagi para sa isa’t isa.”
Carla Abellana: “Na madalas, ang pamilya, siyang pinag-uugatan ng ating mga personal na problema. But in the end, after all is said and done, pamilya pa rin natin ang sasalo sa atin kapag may problema tayo to help us out.”
Sophie: “Ako, what I learned is the importance of acceptance and that the love of your family is like no other. You will always have them to fall back on when worse comes to worst.”
In the finale, all the sisters will be in danger after villain Katrina Halili kidnaps all of them and threatens to hang them all to death. Will Katrina succeed? How will the sisters escape from this deadly situation? Don’t miss the last episode of “Pamilya Roces” tonight to find out all the answers.
