- Kapuso artist Gabbi Garcia broke her silence regarding Pamilya Roces‘s shortfall.
- Garcia shares her point-of-view on last TV series on GMA.
- She felt that the series’s shortcoming was like a lost opportunity.
Gabbi Garcia, at the recently concluded press launch of Film Development Council of the Philippines’ (FDCP) annual Pista ng Pelikulang Pilipino (PPP), was interviewed by PEP.ph regarding her last and short-lived television series Pamilya Roces, on March 26 at Gloria Maris Rstaurant, Gateway, Quezon City.
The said Joel Lamangan-directed family dramatic-comedy series had an early exit on the Network’s primetime bloc is still questionable.
The show was cut short. It premiered in October 2018 and concluded in December of the same year; having at least 10 weeks short from the usual run of television shows. Though the show was under the direction of an award-winning director Lamangan and had a powerhouse cast–it still failed to perform well in the ratings game.
Garcia shared her thoughts on how she handled the premature farewell of their show. Did she ever feel any frustration about it?.
The young female star and formerly one of the Sang’gres in the Encantadia remake answered that it was more of a lost opportunity; since the show could have been a potential hit and could have advanced her career as well.
“Hindi naman frustration, parang, nanghihinayang ka lang.
“But siguro, it happens and you just gotta do what you gotta do, you just have to work until you get the right project, you get the right audience, you get the right character, and the right script. Eventually, naman, when the right timing is there, it will come.”
Gabbi added that despite the short run of the show she believes the show had the best ensemble for a television series.
“We have a good cast, we have the best director, Direk Joel Lamangan is there. Maybe, there’s a reason kung bakit hindi siya nag-click.”
With all the positivity Gabbi claimed that this is an opportunity that will lead to another opportunity, and whatever happens, this trials won’t bring her and her co-stars down.
“It won’t stop me naman and it won’t bring me down naman, kahit naman sino doon sa cast, it did not bring us down to do a teleserye again, and it happens.”
The female star is currently in a PPP film entry titled LSS short for Last Song Syndrome opposite her real-life sweetheart Khalil Ramos.
