Actress Sunshine Dizon returns in doing drama after taking vacation for four years from showbiz. She is among the lead cast members of GMA’s upcoming primetime series, “Mundo Mo’y Akin.” In the said series, She will be joining with Angelika dela Cruz, Jolina Magdangal, Alden Richards, Louise delos Reyes and new kapuso star Lauren Young.
“I am very excited and I can assure the audience that this show is going to be very beautiful: maganda ang concept, maganda ang story,” Sunshine said in an interview during the photo shoot for the said series.
“It has always been at the back of mind naman e — that if something good comes along, I will accept it. This project is something that I was really looking forward to. This one came at the right time,” she said.
“The story itself convinced me to accept the job. When they laid down the storyline, I was really moved at then, of course, mother-daughter relationship, straight drama, so it was appealing for me,” she added.
Sunshine, who is a mother of two in real life, will be portraying as Lauren’s mom in the series. Asked whether she has no problems doing mother roles, Sunshine said she doesn’t mind.
“It’s okay for me. I did that before with ‘Bakekang’. Ang pag-aartista wala naman ‘yan sa edad or whatever; you’re just playing a character,” explained the actress.
When they were younger, Sunshine and Angelika, like many artists were always compared because of their antagonist vs. protagonist roles in their past shows. Are they rivals in real life?
“Of course not. In fact, I am very happy to be working again with Angelika dela Cruz. Siguro let’s not call it rivalries, hindi na yata uso ‘yon. We’re both mothers and married na. Siguro sa mga bagets na lang yung mga rivalries na ‘yan. We don’t need to be bothered about those things anymore,” said Sunshine.
In “Mundo Mo’y Akin,” Sunshine plays the role of Perlita Mendoza a simple woman who, although deprived of a beautiful appearance, has a kind heart and an adorable character. The role is quite similar to her role in the now defunct series, “Bakekang” but Sunshine hopes viewers won’t associate the two since their stories are very much different.
“This is straight and heavy drama,” she said.
The actress is grateful to her fans for continuing to support her through the years.
“Mundo Mo’y Akin” premieres on March 18 on GMA Telebabad. It is directed by director Andoy Ranay.
