In an interview aired on Aquino and Abunda Tonight last night, July 29, Cristine admitted she missed acting since she took a break to take care of Amarah, her baby girl with boyfriend Ali Khatibi.
“Namiss ko ang lahat. Gaano ba katagal?
“Ah, September kasi last year, almost almost one year [akong nawala].”
Cristine’s last teleserye was Honesto, which ended on March 2014. On the big screen, she was last seen with Anne Curtis for the movie The Gifted, which was releasedin September 2014.
The 26-year-old actress said she is excited to be working again with Zanjoe for this project.
It has yet to be confirmed if this new teleserye will be a remake of the 1980 Danny Zialcita movie starring Amy Austria, Dindo Fernando and Star for all Seasons Vilma Santos.
In the original movie, Vilma was cast as the wife of Dindo's character while Amy played the mistress.
“Classic kasi 'tong teleserye na binigay sa akin, sa amin. Very dramatic," said Cristine.
“I’m excited kasi ilang years na kaming 'di nagkatrabaho ulit ni Zanjoe.
“Excited kasi reunion namin ‘to and very happy because I’m comfortable [working] with him.”
She pointed out that this teleserye will already show a major change in her career: that she is bent on doing more dramatic roles rather than portraying sexy characters.
“Siguro para sa ikagaganda ng susunod na chapter ng career ‘di ba?
“Dapat may bagong dapat gawin, kumbaga sa school, di ba, graduate na tayo diyan.
“So ngayon ibang level naman tayo. Focus tayo sa more dramatic area naman.”
