Charo Santos-Concio and Sylvia Sanchez had an intense confrontation scene in an old episode of Maalaala Mo Kaya which was aired in 1994.

Charo Santos-Concio is not just a host of Maalaala Mo Kaya.

In the past, the ABS-CBN executive showcased her acting prowess in episodes of the drama anthology show.

One episode she starred in was titled "Sa Kanlungan Mo, Inay," which was shown in 1994.

She acted alongside veteran actress Anita Linda, Dina Bonnevie, Janice de Belen, and Sylvia Sanchez.

An edited version of the episode was aired again in December 2012, when MMK Klasiks served as a filler for the afternoon timeslot vacated by Angelito: Bagong Yugto.

Charo's character in the episode was Cielo, an abused housewife who had to live with her husband and his mistress.

Her husband was played by Mark Gil while the mistress was portrayed by Sylvia.

One remarkable scene in the episode was when Charo and Sylvia had a confrontation scene involving an "itak" or a heavy knife.

Cielo was slicing a coconut when she heard Lily shouting at her little, innocent child.
