Alex Gonzaga warns viewers that she will have a different approach in portraying the lead character of ABS-CBN's TV adaptation of Inday Bote.
In a recent interview with the 27-year-old actress, she stressed that she will not copy Maricel Soriano's acting style in the hit '80s comedy film.
“Ibang-iba 'yong Inday Bote noon sa gagawin ko ngayon,” Alex pointed out.
“Sabi ko nga, paano ba yan kasi baka ang alam nilang Inday Bote ay 'yong acting ni Ms. Maricel.
“Pero iba po talaga itong gagawin namin.
“Siguro, dapat po, panoorin nila kasi very different po ito.”
Alex explained further, “Kasi kapag sobrang pinattern namin sa dating Inday Bote, mahihirapan tayo kasi we're up against [Ms. Maricel].
“Magiging comparison natin is the Diamond Star so, mas maganda na 'yong iba naman.
Inday Bote will revolve around the story of Inday, a free-spirited young woman who is ready to do everything for her family. This inspiring and magical story will air soon on ABS-CBN Primetime Bida.
Because of her kind heart, Inday is given a magic bottle that, unknown to her, is inhabited by dwarves with magical powers.
How will the dwarves and magic bottle change Inday’s life? Will they bring her luck or misfortune?
The show will introduce the newest Kapamilya child actor Alonzo Muhlach. He will play the character of Entoy, one of the dwarves who will become Inday’s friend.
Under the direction of Malu Sevilla and Jon Villarin, Inday Bote will also star Matteo Guidicelli, Kean Cipriano, Alora Sasam, Smokey Manaloto, Nikki Valdez, Malou Crisologo, and Izzy Canillo.
