KEN Chan says that the recently concluded year, 2018, has been both a good and bad one for him. It’s good because he got a new show for which he is now receiving much acclaim for his very credible performance as a mentally-challenged young man, “My Special Tatay”, but it’s also bad as his dad is now fighting the big C.  

“I thank the Lord for all His blessings and here’s hoping that the new year 2019 will be an even better one for all of us,” he says. “I’m also happy that all of us in the cast of ‘My Special Tatay’ have become very close to each other and we’re now one big happy family. Maganda lagi ang bonding naming lahat sa set in between takes.”

In a video they posted while they’re taping the show, you will see Rita Daniela, who plays Aubrey, singing “My Heart Will Go On”, while Bruno Gabriel, who plays Orville, is playing the piano. Singing along with them are Carmen Soriano as Lola Soledad, Jillian Ward as Odette, Kenneth Giducos as Dekdek, and Ken himself as the title-roler Boyet. Watching them shows that they are all full of positive vibes and it’s obvious that they all get along fine, on and off camera.

The show’s story has gotten more absorbing. The villainous Teresa Loyzaga as Olivia is trying her best to keep Ken as Boyet away from his caring Lola Sol. Meantime, the formerly obnoxious Rita as Aubrey is being changed for the better by honest love and care of Ken for her. No wonder more and more viewers are rooting for their love team.

Rita has her own problems with her mom, Angeli Bayani as Myrna, who is full of complaints and is very materialistic. She finds her match in Candy Pangilinan as Chona, the godmother of Boyet who is very protective of him. The show started airing at the beginning of September and continues to rate very high as it enter it’s fifth month of telecast so we won’t be surprised if it would be extended for several more months.
