Sue Ramirez gets her break on television after seven years in showbiz.
She plays the leading lady of Arjo Atayde in the upcoming ABS-CBN daytime series Hanggang Saan.
Prior to getting the lead role in this afternoon teleserye, Sue was part of the prime-time series La Luna Sangre as the guardian of Kathryn Bernardo.
However, in mid-September, Sue had to exit the fantaserye.
The announcement of this new show followed weeks after her last appearance in La Luna Sangre.
When PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) asked her during the presscon of Hanggang Saan, Sue admitted that the Sylvia Sanchez-starrer is the reason why she had to leave the fantasy series.
She said, "Yes po. Actually, I auditioned for this po in the middle of doing La Luna.
"Sa awa ni Lord, binigay po sa akin yung role ni Anna. I get the chance to work with them [co-stars in Hanggang Saan], so I had to exit La Luna po. Ito po talaga yung reason."
It may seem like she chose Hanggang Saan over La Luna Sangre.
However, Sue clarified that it was actually the management's decision to put her in Hanggang Saan, even though she still has an existing show.
The 21-year-old actress explained, "Actually, it's more of a management decision than mine.
"Nag-usap po siyempre ang Star Magic, mga boss, kung saan po ba talaga nila ako ilalagay kasi pwede naman pong hindi sila pumayag na tanggalin ako sa La Luna.
"Maybe po, nakitaan ng mga bossing natin na mas mag-go-grow si Sue kapag nilagay natin siya sa show na ito, makikitaan siya ng... hindi ko alam, e.
"Pero happy po ako sa decision ng management, happy po ako sa kung nasaan ako ngayon and I'm very happy na naging part din po ako ng La Luna Sangre."
SUE IN SWIMSUIT. This is the first time that Sue gets to work with Arjo in a TV series.
The afternoon family drama will air its pilot episode on November 27.
In one of the scenes shown in the trailer, Sue's character Anna is accompanied by her driver Paco (played by Arjo) when she goes surfing in Baler.
Since the scene is set in a beach, Sue is seen wearing a two-piece bikini, which she rarely does for her television roles.
Sue quipped, "Pinaghandaan ko po talaga yun. Ang tagal ko pong ginutom yung sarili ko para sa Baler!"
However, she clarified that she just really made sure that she is prepared for her scenes in Hanggang Saan.
"Hindi, itong show na ito, di ko po sinasabi na tinorture ko po yung sarili ko, na ginutom ko po yung sarili ko.
"Tinulungan po ako ng show na ito na makita na meron silang mga plano sa akin and kailangan kong mag-comply doon sa mga nire-require sa akin ng role.
"Kailangan ko ipakita sa kanila na kinuha ka namin dito, deserving ka, so gusto ko po ipakita sa kanila na deserve ko po ito.
"Gagawin ko po lahat ng best ko, gagawin ko po lahat ng kailangan kong gawin para magampanan ko po ng maayos yung role ni Anna."
