The Roles Sharon Cuneta Wants To Revisit The Most
As she embarks on her "Ang Probinsyano" journey, the Megastar looks back on her iconic roles, from April Mondragon to Digna-slash-Monique
It’s official: Sharon Cuneta is joining the longest-running teleserye in Philippine history, FPJ's Ang Probinsyano.
Even after over four decades in the Philippine entertainment industry, the Megastar has not done a teleserye of this magnitude. She has always been a constant presence throughout local television since 1980s, but it was always in the form of talk shows, variety shows, and singing competitions.
Her upcoming stint on Ang Probinsyano will reunite her with her former loveteam partner, Rowell Santiago. Her other friends within the cast—including Lorna Tolentino, Jaime Fabregas, Michael de Mesa, Ara Mina, Rosanna Roces, and Coco Martin—also gave her a warm welcome to the cast.
While Ang Probinsyano is a first in many ways for Sharon, the show is also a return to something she hasn’t done in a while: an action-drama. In the 90s, the Megastar had starred in several action movies alongside the likes of Fernando Poe Jr. (FPJ), Rudy Fernandez, and Robin Padilla.
At today’s global media conference, the Megastar talked about what her fans can expect from the show (not much she can say at this point, so we're really excited to find out whether she will be on Cardo's side or not!); reminisced about what it was like working with the original ‘probinsyano,’ FPJ, and listed down the roles she would want to revisit the most, if given the chance.
Sharon tells us, “Georgia Zaragosa in Kahit Konting Pagtingin. April Mondragon in Dear Heart. Kristine in P.S. I Love You. Dorina Pineda in Bituing Walang Ningning. Digna-slash-Monique in Maging Sino Ka Man. Those are the ones that come to mind instantly, siyempre. I wanna revisit [them] because I think those were the times na I had the most fun on set and the most fun with the character I was portraying. P'wede mong laruin.”
She also said that if she were to do a continuation of an old movie of hers in which the protagonist is in a different stage of her life, she would have to choose Bituing Walang Ningning. “I wanna see where Dorina and Nico are going and Lavinia also. Kamusta na sila? I also want to see April [Mondragon, of Dear Heart—Sharon's first film ever],” the Megastar added. “At tsaka 'yang Maging Sino Ka Man, gusto kong malaman.”
