Glaiza de Castro is happy that she can now finally tell everyone that she got the plum role of Pirena in the 2016 requel of Encantadia.
Right after GMA-7's big revelation, she happily posted a photo on her Instagram account (@glaizaredux) indicating that she is indeed reprising the role of Sunshine Dizon in the telefantasya.
Glaiza provided the caption: “Ngayon malaya ko nang maihahayag.
“Maraming salamat @gmanetwork sa tiwala at pagtugon sa hiling ng nakararami na muling masubaybayan ang kwento na nagbigay inspirasyon sa maraming tao at isa na ako doon.
“Nagagalak sa bagong henerasyon!”
In a January 2016 interview with PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal), Glaiza said that she auditioned for the role of Pirena for the upcoming series reboot.
In fact, she prepared and worked out a lot, since it is really her dream to play a warrior princess.
Last Monday, April 4, it was finally announced that Glaiza will portray the role of Pirena while other Kapuso stars Kylie Padilla, Gabbi Garcia and Sanya Lopez will reprise the roles of Amihan, Alena, and Danaya, respectively.
