MANILA -- ABS-CBN's popular daytime drama "Nang Ngumiti ang Langit" is now down to its last five episodes.
The series about family, unconditional love, respect, and
forgiveness starring child star Sophia Reola with RK Bagatsing,
Shaina Magdayao, and Cristine Reyes will conclude on October 18.
In a press conference on Thursday, Bagatsing turned emotional as he talked about his experience working for the hit series, which debuted last March.
"We all know na every teleserye or every show, you spent so much time working hard. Every day nakakasama mo 'yung mga taong 'yon. Every time na nasa set ka, it's time away from your family," said Bagatsing.
"Kasi if you ask me kung ano ang mami-miss ko kay Michael Villaluna, mami-miss ko mismo ang pamilya ni Michael Villaluna," he added, referring to his character in the show. "And I haven't seen my parents for a long time so sila talaga 'yung tumatayong pamilya ko. So binibiro ko sila na mararamdaman mo lang 'yung loss kapag wala ka nang call time, then next week tapos na. And I mean it, mami-miss ko kayong lahat because you became my family, every single one of you. At sa mga tumayong parents namin, sa mga direktor namin, kay FMR, thank you very much."
Magdayao agreed, saying she will also miss working with her co-stars in the series.
"I entered patapos na siya pero 'yun nga, it doesn't feel like work. Parang isang solid family sila and hindi lang nila ako winelcome sa plot nila but also winelcome rin nila ako sa set which is more important for me. And I really feel na pamilya rin talaga while doing the show," she said.
"I think 'yung mga ganitong klaseng show at ganitong mga taong kasama mo sa trabaho, you would always want to keep them in your heart and not forget them kahit tapos na 'yung proyekto," the actress added.
