MANILA – Isabelle Daza will star in an episode of “Maalaala Mo Kaya” this Saturday -- a first for the host-actress since she transferred to ABS-CBN last year.

Daza’s first "MMK" episode tells the inspiring story of two sisters whose relationship is put to the test as they battle for their parents’ attention. Their lives, however, takes a turn when one of them is diagnosed with a kidney failure.

For Daza, her role on "MMK" is a perfect showcase for her acting prowess.

In a previous interview, Daza said one of the reasons she transferred to the Kapamilya network was to explore more opportunities aside from hosting.

Daza had said she wants to "focus more on acting and hone that craft."

Joining Daza in Saturday's episode are Miles Ocampo, Belle Mariano, Althea Guanzon, Snooky Serna, Allan Paule, Ryan Ramos, John Servilla, Raquel Montesa, Nathan Lopez and Bea Basa.

The episode is directed by Jerry Lopez-Sineneng and written by Ruel Montañez.
