“Pinoy Big Brother All In” second big placer Maris Racal will put her acting skills to test as she stars in her first “Maalaala Mo Kaya” episode on ABS-CBN this Saturday (October 18).
Maris will play the role of Myla, the loving and hardworking daughter of a seaman, Dionisio (to be portrayed by Nonie Buencamino).
Being the only daughter in the family, Myla is considered to be her father Dionisio’s favorite. Despite working abroad, Dionisio remains close to her daughter. He always reminds Myla to work hard to finish school and earn a degree. However, their solid father-daughter relationship is tested when Dionisio’s marriage to his wife takes the rough road.
Amid the most trying times, can a daughter turn her back on her beloved father who inspired her to strive harder and achieve her dreams?
Also part of the upcoming “MMK” episode are Dexie Daulat, Mickey Ferriols, Eva Darren, Tony Mabesa, Encar Benedicto, Jong Cuenco, Alfred Labatos, Yogo Singh, and Lui Manansala. It is directed by Garry Fernando and written by Arah Jell Badayos and Joan Habana. “MMK” is led by business unit head Malou Santos and creative manager Mel Mendoza-del Rosario.
