Pop singer and actress Sheryn Regis confirmed that she is part of ABS-CBN's television series "Utoy", along with child actor Makisig Morales and the country's King of Comedy- Dolphy.
"Mayroon... parang fantaserye comedy," Regis told abs-cbnNEWS.com inside the ABS-CBN compound.
Regis has already worked with Dolphy, and she said she is very happy and overwhelmed by the chance to work with the veteran actor.
"Working with Dolphy ang galing iyong impromptu may maiisip siya agad para sa iyo na comedy, at saka hindi siya mahirap kausap at hindi siya mahirap katrabaho talagang (ang galing). With high respect talaga. Siya pa ang nagjo-joke sa iyo pero ang respeto mo kasi legend na iyan at saka ang galing, super ang tingin ko kay Dolphy walang halong biro," Regis added.
The singer shared that former Miss Universe Gloria Diaz is also part of the project.
Regis said the series is inspired by the classic children's tale "Pinocchio."
"Maganda siya kasi parang fantaserye iyon at the same time parang nire-revive ang isang fairy tale," she added.
Sheryn Regis or Sheryn Mae Poncardas Regis in real life was a consistent top scorer of ABS-CBN's 2004's "Search for the Star in a Million" but she eventually became a runner-up to Erik Santos.

In early 2008, Regis was chosen to cover singer Regine Velasquez's "Kailangan Ko'y Ikaw" for the official soundtrack of "Maging Sino Ka Man: Ang Pagbabalik."
