BB Gandanghari is cast in TV5’s first fantasy series, Enchanted Garden, which is expected to air this July.
BB will co-star with Alice Dixon, Rufa Mae Quinto, Ruffa Gutierrez, and Zoren Legaspi.
At the said show’s story conference yesterday, June 11, at Max’s restaurant on Scout Tuazon, Quezon City, BB shared how excited she is about this project.
“I’m very, very excited!
"In fact, hindi ako nambobola or something, pero nagbo-border ako dun sa parang hindi ako makapaniwala na may gagawin akong teleserye.
“Kasi nga, nung umuwi naman ako dito, I had plans of doing something, pero never from my wildest dreams na [na-imagine kong] gagawa ako ng teleserye sa pag-uwi kong ito.
“So I’m very excited. It comes as a surprise actually.”
According to BB, she was originally supposed to do a reality show but things did not work out.
“I was supposed to do a reality TV na, yun na nga, e, nung pag-uwi ko dito, hindi kami nagkaintindihan.
"May mga bagay na hindi napagkasunduan so I just opted not to do it.”
BB’s character in Enchanted Garden will be that of a rich but snobbish proprietress of a beauty spa with a well-kept secret.
Is this kind of character something she had always wanted to do?
“Oo, in fact, and what I’ve heard is gagawing parang geisha ang look ng lola dito.
“Totoo 'yan, it’s all I’ve been… hindi naman dreaming, but imagining what character na I wanna play.
"So, yeah, I’m very excited,” she said with a smile.
