Ex-“Goin’ Bulilit” child star Jane Oineza is finally relieved now that her much talked about episode in ABS-CBN’s drama anthology, “Maalaala Mo Kaya” was approved for airing this Saturday (June 30). The ‘Cursed Beauty’ episode of “MMK” that deals with teen rape, is Jane’s first-ever starring role on TV.
“I literally jumped for joy upon knowing that it’s finally airing!” said Jane. “Prior the confirmation, I was praying hard about it. That’s why I was so glad when I heard the news that the viewers can finally see it.”
Jane shared that just like the rest of the viewers who saw the teaser, she was anxious but intrigued with the story of Nene when she was offered with the role. She said, “At first, I was nervous to do it. But after reading the script, I was certain that I wanted to play the part. I knew I was ready for a challenging role like Nene.”
When asked about what can the curious viewers expect this Saturday, Jane simply gave hint out an open-ended thought. “Through Nene’s lifestory, I realized that we should not let our suffering rule our life. It should teach us not to give up,” she said.
Jane’s “MMK” episode was recently given the go-signal by the Movie and Television Review and Classification Board (MTRCB) after its original June 2 airing was postponed due to its sensitive content that earned it an X-rating. ‘Cursed Beauty’ now has a rating of "SPG" or "strong parental guidance" after being thoroughly reviewed by the agency.
Together with Jane in the "MMK" episode are Angel Aquino, Carlos Morales, RS Francisco, Vangie Labalan, Ana Abad Santos, Archie Alemania, Gerald Madrid, Jacko Benin, Kyline Alcantara, Liz Alindogan, Jesette Prospero, Minco Fabregas, and Elaine Quemuel. It was researched by Mae Rose Balanay, written by Benson Logronio, and directed by Nuel Naval.
