Laughter and relationships -- two things the 'Genesis' cast will miss
December 26 2013
It has been a tiring but fulfilling run for the primetime series Genesis since it premiered on October 14.
As the show comes to an end this Friday, December 27, its powerhouse cast shares how the show has brought them closer.
Dingdong Dantes (Isaak) "Lahat [naging memorable]. 'Yung first two weeks, kasi talagang binusisi namin ang first two weeks. We shot it for months, and that's how much dedicated we were doon sa pagpapaganda ng project."
Rhian Ramos (Raquel) "Napi-feel na namin na mami-miss namin ang isa't isa kasi we are starting to eat together. Usually kasi pahinga namin 'yung mga lunch break at dinner break. Lahat ng girls nasa girl's tent, lahat ng guys nasa guy's tent. Today, hindi kami nag-uusap-usap, we just all started showing up at the table tapos parang na-gets na namin na 'mami-miss ko kayo!'
Jackie Lou Blanco (Ramona) "I guess mami-miss ko talaga ang samahan namin. Happy people in a happy set despite the heaviness of the work, the distance that we need to travel kasi medyo malalayo 'yung pinupuntahan namin. It's always naman the company that you remember. Of course you remember the good scenes, but I think more than anything, you really remember the relationships that you build when you work."
Carlo Gonzales (Waldo) "From Day One, naging magaan, it was so smooth from the crew to the staff to the artists. Talagang 'yung bonding namin, ibang klase. Most of them ngayon ko lang nakatrabaho, Towards the middle of the taping schedule, parang feeling ko matagal ko na silang nakakatrabaho. The people around, and siguro 'yung atmosphere during taping, kahit sabihin mong malayo o maaga, parang light pa rin ang atmosphere."
Luane Dy (Jill) "Mami-miss ko ang mga tao dito. Aside from sa set, 'yung mga nag-aalaga sa amin, 'yung mga kinukulit ko kapag naiinip ako. Sina Maruja, 'yung mga makeup artist namin, 'yung mga kasangga ko sa kainan (laughs)."
Ervic Vijandre (Rodel) "Pinakamami-miss ko itong tawanan namin kasama ng makeup artists. Lalo na itong si Jessica, sobra niya akong pinapatawa lagi. Siya rin 'yung isa sa mga mami-miss ko. Kasi minsan kapag wala kaming ginagawa, dinner break or lunch break, nagkukuwentuhan lang kami at lagi siya 'yung bangka. Andami niyang lines na nakakatawa."
Genesis airs its final episode tomorrow, December 27, after Adarna on GMA Telebabad.
