After her stint on Dahil May Isang Ikaw, Karylle continues to showcase her dramatic prowess as she plays the role of Tara Santelices, a Political Science graduate of Ateneo who got shot in the head during a jeepney holdup on the eve of her birthday last August 6, 2008. Though she was comatose for almost a year, her dad (Albert Martinez) refused to take her off life support while her mom wanted her suffering to end.
The Santelices family had a hard time accepting Tara’s fate since not only was she a good daughter but she had touched a lot of people’s lives with her advocacies. Proof of how well loved Tara was was the long line of visitors during her confinement in the hospital and her friends and acquaintances mounted various fundraising activities for her expensive hospital bills.
How did Tara become such a great inspiration to many? Find out in this compelling episode of Maalaala Mo Kaya Saturday, December 19, right after The Singing Bee on ABS-CBN. The star-studded cast also includes Cherry Pie Picache, Albert Martinez, and Megan Young.
