Jolina Magdangal-Escueta and Marvin Agustin in “Tapatan Ni Tunying”

Returning Kapamilya Jolina Magdangal-Escueta shares in “Tapatan Ni Tunying” airing this Thursday (November 13) that motherhood makes her a better actress as she is now able to dig deeper into more mature roles.

“I can now relate and effectively portray a mother in drama scenes. That is one of the changes that the audience will see,” the first-time mom says.

Jolina’s motherhood has also changed her perspective on her showbiz career.

“Now that I’m a mother, I carefully choose my projects. I became systematic when it comes to time management. My husband and I are hands-on parents. I always think about my time with my son whenever I have a new project,” she shares.

Jolina’s original on-screen partner in the ‘90s, Marvin Agustin, meanwhile, also shares in the “Tapatan Ni Tunying” episode that despite his hectic schedule in showbiz and in managing restaurant chains and other businesses, he always finds time for his twin sons.

“I always answer their calls because I worry a lot about them as a father. They’re not with me all the time, and they are the only ones who can get me to excuse myself from a meeting to answer their call,” shares Marvin.

After more than a decade, Jolina and Marvin will be reunited in TV series “Flordeliza,” which will premiere this November.
