I’m loving the storytelling of Daig Kayo ng Lola Ko. I watched the first half of the first episode of GMA 7’s latest fantasy anthology, and I’m in love with it. Live action is mixed with animation, making it fun to watch. Of course, not to be left behind are the kids and their acting.
During the Kapuso Brigade and bloggers preview of the series, we were joined by Jillian Ward, Chlaui Malayao and David Remo. Jillian Ward, who was first introduced in GMA 7’s “Trudis Liit” is no longer a little kid. She’s a teenager now, and pretty one at that. She has proven herself as far as acting is concerned.
And now Chlaui and David are the ones following Jillian’s path. Chlaui Malayao was part of Little Nanay (2015), Encantadia (2016) and Yagit (2014). David Remo was seen in Binoy Henyo (2013), Nino (2014), Pari ‘Koy (2015), and Oh, My Mama! (2016). I can’t help but admire the kids.
We had a chance to talk to three kids and ask about their experiences in shooting Daig Kayo ng Lola Ko. They were all in agreement that they were having fun. I can’t imagine how they can’t have fun. When you’re a kid and working on a project about fantasy, with fairies and all, that is the ultimate fun.
In the first episode of Daig Kayo ng Lola Ko, Jillian and David will be seen doing something that normal kids can only imagine, being a fairy. And David said that’s his most favorite part so far.
We learned that they were in harness when shooting the particular scene. I was a bit concerned and asked if they were hurt or uncomfortable with the harness. It’s good to know that they weren’t hurt and that the director was very much aware how to avoid that.
Marian Rivera will be in the first episode of this TV fantasy anthology in a very special role. I really enjoyed how her story was told in a very light way, nothing heavy for the kids. Like me, I’m sure the kids and the kids-at-heart will enjoy Daig Kayo ng Lola Ko. Don’t miss it starting April 30 in the afternoon, after Hay Bahay.
