In an interview with ABS-CBN News on Thursday, Pilapil said her character in the series in very far from her previous roles in the Kapamilya shows “Lobo” and “Agua Bendita.”
“I feel very happy with ‘Ina Kapatid Anak’ because once again, I have a role that is a complete opposite of the kontrabida role that I usually play in soap operas. This is one is more of the normal wife and a regular type of a businesswoman,” she said.
In “Ina Kapatid Anak,” Pilapil plays the mother of actresses Janice De Belen and Cherry Pie Picache.
In a separate interview, Pilapil also said it is refreshing to act alongside young stars Kim Chiu, Maja Salvador, Enchong Dee and Xian Lim.
“They’re always acting, parati silang nasa telebisyon at sa pelikula. Somehow they’re able to really perfect the craft. For instance, I haven’t been acting for quite some time. I'm not always there. I’m not always doing what they’re doing. So it takes a bit of adjustment for us. So I think they are quite good,” she said.
Since “Ina Kapatid Anak” debuted on October 8, "Ina, Kapatid, Anak" has steadily earned a nationwide following. It breached the 30% rating mark only 15 days after its debut.
