Sylvia Sanchez on being loyal to ABS-CBN: "Sila ang nagbigay sa akin at nag-angat sa akin sa teleserye at malaking utang na loob ko sa ABS."


Veteran actress Sylvia Sanchez certifies her loyalty to her home network, ABS-CBN.

Being a freelancer, Sylvia has been doing projects with ABS-CBN since 2012.

When PEP.ph (Philippine Entertainment Portal) asked her about this, she answered, "Sila nagtiwala sa akin, e."

She then clarified that she was also able to do good projects with rival network, GMA-7.

"I mean, nagtiwala naman lahat, kahit GMA, nagtiwala naman sa akin, nagtiwala naman sila.

"Binigyan din naman nila ako ng mga proyekto noon. Galing din naman ako sa GMA. Nag-GMA din naman ako."

From 2010-2011, Sylvia was able to do a string of teleseryes with the Kapuso Network.

Her past projects include Langit sa Piling Mo (2010), Tween Hearts (2010-2011), Koreana (2010), and Iglot (2011).

When she returned to ABS-CBN in 2012, Sylvia has not taken a break from doing teleseryes.

Her teleserye projects as a Kapamilya were: Mundo Man Ay Magunaw (2012), Be Careful With My Heart (2012-2014), Apoy sa Dagat (2013), NingNing (2015), and My Super D (2016).

In 2016, ABS-CBN tapped Sylvia to play the lead role in the afternoon series, The Greatest Love.

The series, including Sylvia, won numerous awards and recognitions.

According to Sylvia, it was ABS-CBN that entrusted her to play a lead role, her first in 30 years.

She continued, "Ngayon, noong nasa ABS na ako, sunud-sunod yung show ko, at the same time, sila yung nagtiwala sa akin na bigyan ako ng sariling teleserye.

"So kung noon nga na sunud-sunod na supporting ako, grabe na yung loyalty ko sa kanila, what more ngayon na binigyan ako ng sarili kong teleserye.

"Mas matimbang pa rin sa akin ang utang na loob. Mas matimbang pa rin sa akin tignan kung sino yung nag-build up sa akin.

"Kaya ganun ako ka-loyal kasi grabe yung tiwalang binigay nila sa akin, di ba? Minahal naman din nila talaga ako."

PEP.ph, along with other reporters, spoke to Sylvia during the January 29 press conference of her upcoming movie, Jesusa, at West Avenue Suites, Quezon City.

OPEN TO WORK WITH GMA-7

However, Sylvia isn't closing her doors to working for the Kapuso network.

"Yeah, oo naman, pwede naman akong gumawa. Kung halimbawa, later on, papahinga ako, which is hindi ako magpapahinga sa ngayon.

"Pero kung halimbawa, wala akong show sa ABS at may offer ang GMA, pupunta naman... aalamin ko kung ano role ko, at lalapit ako sa ABS, 'May offer sa akin.'

"Magpapaalam ako ng maayos na: 'Pwede ba ito?' Out of respect, siyempre.

"Pero kung sasabihin nilang may show ako, di ba, siyempre, basta priority ko ABS dahil sila ang nagbigay sa akin at nag-angat sa akin sa teleserye at malaking utang na loob ko sa ABS."

Aside from her upcoming movie Jesusa, Sylvia is starring in a new drama series titled Project Kapalaran. This show features JM de Guzman, Arci Munoz, Joey Marquez, and returning Kapamilya Kiko Estrada.
