SHE practically grew up right before the eyes of the public as a teeny bopper dancing with teeners her age over the Sunday noontine time show of the Kapuso station.In between, she would either be guesting or star with fellow actors to different shows and teleseryes of her home station. Soon the young actress would be longing for a big project that would hone her acting ability, push her to stardom and cement her place in the industry.
Ynna felt she had waited long enough. She hoped for the breakthrough five years ago. But it did not happen. Until Net25’s first romantic teleserye, Ang Daigdig Ko’y Ikaw, came along.
“Bigla akong nabigyan ng ganito… Kaya ina-advise ko sa lahat na huwag lang silang mag-give up, maghintay lang.
“Kasi pag si God na ang gumawa ng way, in His time, lahat tama,” the 29-year-old actress said during the media con held at the INC Museum in Quezon City recently.
The TV series serves as launching project for Ynna as leading lady.
“Sobrang excited ako, 14 years in the industry, ngayon lang ito nangyari, kaya talagang binigay ko lahat dito, acting-wise,” she said.
Ynna is paired for the first time with Geoff Eigennman as her leading man.
Fans and fellow artists are happy for Ynna for this biggest break in her career. Likewise, TV audience and teleserye enthusiasts would definitely expect a lot from Ynna and the Net 25’s biggest TV project to date.
This writer, for one, would love to see a level-up drama series perhaps even better or at par with the current dramas on more popular stations with no less than multi-awarded Eduardo Roy, Jr. directing from the story of Bing Castro-Villanueva, under the supervision of director and writer Nestor Malgapo, Jr.
Cinemalaya director Eduardo Roy, Jr. is known for his quality movies which include Quick Change, Pamilya Ordinaryo, Last Fool Show, Lola Igna and Fuccbois.
“Ang Daigdig Ko’y Ikaw” mirrors real-life drama under the new normal. The series starts when the government declares a nationwide lockdown due to the pandemic, imposing community quarantines.
Providing the scenic background is the Las Casas Filipinas de Acuzar, a resort in Bagac, Bataan, with a vast collection of restored Spanish-Filipino houses intricately curated into a world-class historical haven.
The new drama tandem is supported by a mix of fresh and veteran supporting cast in the industry that includes Tanya Gomez, Richard Quan, Shiela Marie Rodriguez, Arielle Roces, AJ Muhlach, Anna Mabasa-Muhlach, Manolo Silayan, Jiro Custodio, Paulyn Ann Poon, Myrna Villanueva Tinio and Jellex David, with the special participation of Ms. Elizabeth Oropesa.
Ang Daigdig Ko’y Ikaw premieres November 28, Saturday, 8pm on Net25.
