For the first time on television, KC Concepcion plays the role of a wife and mother in a ‘period’ episode of “Maalaala Mo Kaya” this Saturday (October 22) as part of the TV drama anthology’s month-long 20th anniversary celebration. With new Kapamilya leading man Paulo Avelino playing as her husband ‘Romy,’ KC will breathe to life the character of ‘Aurora,’ a strong-willed woman who stood by the man she loved and worked hard just to make her dreams for her family happen.
According to Paulo, working with in KC in MMK was memorable. When he accepted the offer, he had no idea at first that he would be playing opposite the daughter of Megastar Sharon Cuneta. "So when I learned that KC Concepcion is the lead star, I carefully studied the script and really prepared for all our scenes,” Paulo revealed. “Before I met KC, I thought she was ‘unreachable’ because she is the ‘Mega Daughter.' But when I got to work with her, I learned that she is easy to get along with. For three days during our taping, laughing at random jokes became our bonding moment on the set.”
Paulo also shared that he is thankful that he was given the chance to take part in the 20 th anniversary celebration of MMK. He said, “I’m a fan of MMK since I was a kid. So it’s a great privilege that now I can say that I’ve been part of the show that I grew up watching.”
Also starring Dina Bonnevie, Johnny Revilla, Vangie Labalan, and Nanding Josef, this week's episode chronicles the life story of a woman who empowered herself by making her dreams happen. It is directed by Jerry Lopez Sineneng and written by Rose Colindres
