GMA Network is all set to premiere its newest drama series on Monday, My Mother’s Secret, starring Gwen Zamora, in a story of love between a mother and child amid a grand ambition.
My Mother’s Secret begins when a young Vivian (Gwen) leaves her childhood sweetheart Anton (Christian Bautista) in the hopes of becoming an actors. Her budding career ends abruptly when she learns she is pregnant.
Not wanting to turn out like her sister who had kids while unable to take care of them, Vivian detested the idea of being a mother, and decides to hide her pregnancy. She leaves her baby with Cora (Lotlot de Leon), the midwife who helps her give birth to a daughter named Neri (Kim Rodriguez). In time, Vivian’s past will haunt her again, as Neri discovers a truth that hurts her.
Asked whether she is comfortable portraying a mother role at this stage in her career, Gwen, at the series’ press conference this week replied, “Naging nanay na rin ako ni Oyo Sotto sa Enteng Kabisote, kaya no problem kung tinanggap ko muli ang role ko na maging nanay ni Kim [Rodriguez] sa My Mother’s Secret. Saka bago kami nagsimulang mag-taping, nag-workshop muna kami nina Christian my husband in the story at sa iba pang members ng cast. Masaya, kinilala namin ang isa’t isa kaya mas madali ang trabaho under our director Neal del Rosario.”
Completing the cast of the GMA drama are Shamaine Buencamino, Meryl Soriano, Enzo Pineda, Diva Montelaba, Tricia Cabais, Joanna Marie Tan, Richard Quan, Mike Lloren, JM Katanyag, Frances Makill, Ervic Vejandre, with the special participation of Mark Herras.
