“Ang fulfillment ko dito yung nakasama ko si Arjo, tunay kong anak nakasama ko dito. Of course, noong una, nangangapa kaming dalawa then alam naman natin yun, noong umpisa, yung rating, talagang lumalaban pa kami then finally nag-shoot up kami, umangat kami. Yun pa lang na e-exit kami ng maayos at e-exit kami gracefully na maganda at gusto ng tao yung istorya namin, masaya ako. Bukod sa anak ko, nakilala ko yung mga co-actors ko na mababait at professional katrabaho. Yun yung fulfillment ko kasi after na naman nitong show na ito, meron na naman akong alagang mga bagong bata at mga co-actors na kahit mawala yung show, yung pamilya namin sa Hanggang Saan, hindi na mawawala yun.”
Sylvia revealed what she felt during the alleged weak performance in the ratings game.They didn’t start that strong and they fought through the ratings.
“Actually, kasi, di ba, lahat naman ng show na nag-u-umpisa, hindi naman kaagad malakas yun or kung malakas man, siya may tendency na bumaba siya. Kami, nagstart kami na hindi kami sobrang taas. Okay lang kami. Lumaban kami sa rating, merong mataas ngayon, merong mababa, merong mataas, merong mababa.”
Ratings started to rise when they incorporated action in the drama series. She acknowledged the differences between The Greatest Love and Hanggang Saan.
“Kaya yung production talaga, binuo nila, inayos nila kasi from The Greatest Love, iba na ngayon ang tema, e. Ibang-iba na. Hindi na pwede yung si Gloria noon na ganon. Ngayon, hindi na tinatanggap yun. Iba na ngayon, sampalan, suntukan, grabe na ngayon. So binuo nila Direk [Mervyn Brondial], binuo ng production. Nagmeeting sila, ano saan tayo kukuha, ano yung makukuha natin na ika-a-angat ng show. Then finally umangat kami doon sa pangwa-walanghiya na nito [Ariel Rivera], nag-start talaga doon sa nabaril si Arjo at saka si Yves, binaril ni Jacob [Ariel]. Yun na yung start na tinanggap kami totally.”
Hanggang Saan will soon air its final episode on April 27, Friday. The show also stars Sue Ramirez, Teresa Loyzaga, Maris Racal and Yves Flores among others.
