Eula Valdez happily returns to GMA Network after 5 years through ‘Return to Paradise’

“Kahit na hindi ganoon kahirap ang ibigay sa iyo na eksena, kailangan mong trabahahuin. Kailangan mong intindihin para maging special. Hindi ‘yung parang okay, kinunan lang, tapos, tsika na ulit tayo. Kumbaga may assignment ka. Kailangan mong pag-aralan lahat.”

Seasoned actress Eula Valdez expressed on Thursday, July 28, that it was a happy moment in her career being one of GMA Network’s roster of talents again.

She joined Derrick Monasterio and Protegé finalist Elle Villanueva in leading the upcoming Afternoon Prime Return to Paradise.



During the virtual media conference of the series, the actress admitted that she was happy to be a Kapuso again because of the work environment.

“Masaya ako na nakabalik ako ng GMA and mas masayang katrabaho ang mga… ultimo hanggang sa crew ha?” she explained. “Sinasabi ko nga, kapag nagte-taping ka, pantay-pantay lahat. Wala ‘yung, ‘cameraman ka, quiet ka lang, ‘yung direktor lang ang magsasalita.'”

Valdez added, “Eto, magaan. Magaan ang trabaho mo kapag magkakasundo lahat, at masasaya lahat.”

Though the project can be considered lightweight for the seasoned actress, she pointed out that it still is challenging to come up with ways in which she can portray her role. Even if it is similar to what Valdez has done in the past, she aims to make her portrayal different.

“Kahit na hindi ganoon kahirap ang ibigay sa iyo na eksena, kailangan mong trabahahuin. Kailangan mong intindihin para maging special. Hindi ‘yung parang okay, kinunan lang, tapos, tsika na ulit tayo. Kumbaga may assignment ka. Kailangan mong pag-aralan lahat.”

“Kahit pare-parehong naghahanap ng nawawalang anak. Normally, lagi akong naghahanap ng anak or nahihiwalay sa anak pero gawin mong special ang paghahanap mo, ‘di ba? Walang maliit na role. Walang paulit-ulit na role. Nasa sa’yo iyon kung paano mo gagawing special o iba.”

Regarding Villanueva, Valdez saw potential in the young talent. She said that apart from being beautiful, their lead star can go far as an actress.

“Baguhan siya pero mukhang malalim naman ang bata at willing to learn. Tinatanya ko pa siya minsan eh pero head-on siya. Kumbaga nakikisabay, nakikipagsabayan din.

“Hindi siya nai-intimidate. Hindi ko naramdaman na parang hesitant siya or parang bahala na, natatakot ako. Walang ganoon. Seryoso siya. Parang gusto niyang maging artista talaga.”



Return to Paradise will begin on August 1.
