MANILA – Veteran actress Sylvia Sanchez admitted that she is facing a lot of pressure following the positive reviews of the teaser trailer of her upcoming series “The Greatest Love.”
This is the reason she is determined to work hard to meet the expectations of viewers.
"Sa mga nagdaan kong soaps okay lang ako, medyo-medyo relax pero ngayon hindi ako pwede mag-relax kasi teaser pa nga lang lumabas, ang dami na namin nakuhang mga papuri which is nakaka-pressure talaga," Sanchez told ABS-CBN News’ Jeff Fernando.
In the upcoming series, Sanchez plays Gloria, a mother of four who is suffering from Alzheimer’s disease.
To prepare for the role, Sanchez said she personally met with people suffering from the progressive brain disorder. “Ako mismo nagpupunta doon sa may mga Alzheimer’s, 'yung mannerism, ano 'yung mata niya, basta kung ano siya kapag umaatake 'yung ganun klase na sakit," she said.
Sanchez said she wants to give her best in the series because such an opportunity is rare, especially for showbiz veterans like her.
"Kung kailan ako nagkaka-edad tsaka naging ang ganda ng career. Noong una ang sexy ko, waley. Ngayong lumaki ako, ito tuluy-tuloy... In His time," said Sanchez, who has been in showbiz for over two decades already.
A Kapamilya Gold series, “The Greatest Love” tackles the sacrifices of a mother for her family. It also stars Dimples Romana, Andi Eigenmann, Matt Evans and Arron Villaflor.
