Sanya’s Christmas plans
SANYA Lopez has appeared in several past episodes of GMA-7’s hit fantasy-children’s show, “Daig Kayo ng Lola Ko”, like “Rapunzel”, “The Mermaids” and “Witchikels” but her current featured episode, “Oh My Oppa”, is the highest rating of all, so she has reason to rejoice and be proud of it.
“It looks like a lot of people are enjoying the story of my character, Grace, a hotel manager who buys herself a Korean robot para i-present sa dati niyang boyfriend as her current boyfriend,” she says.
In the story, she is paired with three guys: Gil Cuerva as the Korean robot named Gong Yoon Bin, Derrick Monasterio as the crippled chef Toti in their hotel who secretly loves her, and Jon Lucas as her ex-boyfriend Alex, with Ashley Ortega as Jon’s new girlfriend Fifi.
“We had fun taping this episode kasi we’re all friends,” she says. “Si Derrick, ilang beses ko nang nakasama sa teleserye at sa movies so close na close na kami. Si Gil naman, nakasama ko sa mermaid episode ng ‘Daig Kayo ng Lola Ko’ last year. Very comfortable na ako with them.”
She has the reputation of being NBSB (No Boyfriend Since Birth). If ever she’d have a boyfriend, what would be her first requirement?
“Ang pinaka-importante sa’kin sa ngayon, ‘yung matatanggap ang work ko. Kasi as of now, sobrang busy ako sa trabaho, lalo na ngayong nasa lock-in taping na ako ng ‘First Lady’. Ang tapos ng taping namin is December 22 na, a few days before Christmas kaya wala na akong time mag-Christmas shopping. Kaya sa ngayon, wala talaga akong time for myself. E parang ang hirap makahanap ng taong maiintindihan talaga ang trabaho mo dahil wala akong maibibigay na atensiyon sa kanya. Gusto ko ‘yung mabait at mamahalin ka no matter what.”
So what is the first thing that she will do when she gets out of their lock in location? “Ang gusto ko, umuwi muna sa probinsiya namin to see my lola and so I can spend Christmas with her. Ang tagal ko na siyang hindi nakikita kasi naging sobrang busy nga ako kahit may pandemic. But bago ako nagpunta sa taping, I already fixed the Christmas tree sa bahay namin ng Kuya ko (Jak Roberto). First time ko to put Christmas decorations in our house, kasi dati, ni wala kaming Christmas tree. Wala pang pambili.”
So what will happen to her character, Grace, in “Daig Kayo ng Lola” final episode of “Oh My Oppa” this Sunday, at 4 PM?
“Abangan nyo kung ano ang mangyayari kapag nalaman ng ex-boyfriend ko na ang ipinakilala ko sa kanyang bago kong Korean boyfriend is just a robot pala! Ginagamit ko lang para pagselosin siya. Riot talaga. I really enjoyed doing this episode as it’s something very light and funny. Nagsuot pa ako rito ng damit pangkasal na pang-K drama. May magandang aral na itinuturo ito sa mga bata na madadala nila later on. It’s yung maging totoo ka lang, huwag ka magpanggap, kasi wala namang masama sa pagiging totoo.”
