MANILA -- After the successful finale of the primetime drama series "You're My Home," teen actress Mika dela Cruz is returning to heavy drama on the Saturday episode of the legal drama series "Ipaglaban Mo."
She will play the role of a child abuse victim.
On Thursday, the 17-year-old dela Cruz promoted the upcoming episode and entertained questions from fans through Kapamilya Chat.
A netizen then asked dela Cruz if she is ready to entertain suitors as she turns 18 this year.
"Never pa po akong nagka-boyfriend, ever. So, mag e-eighteen na ako, so medyo kabado ako sa future kung anong magiging reaction ng family ko," she said.
A certified "ate's girl," she added that her suitors must first seek the approval of her sister, actress Angelica dela Cruz, before they start courting her.
"Sasakalin po ako ng ate ko," she quipped. "Siyempre, lahat po ng babae dadaan sa ganun e. In-expect ko naman po na medyo ganun po ang mangyayari sa akin."
