In its almost four year-run, we have seen a lot of characters, either main, supporting, or guest, come and go on FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano. While we already lost count of the number, one thing’s for sure – most of them are men. Well, this is in inevitable considering that this is an action-drama and the profession of the titular Ricardo “Cardo” Dalisay, portrayed by the formidable and versatile Coco Martin, is in the field ruled by men.
There have been several female characters on the show, not to mention that the roles they portray are truly significant, such as Cardo’s grandmother Lola Flora (Susan Roces), his wife Alyanna (Yassi Pressman) and National Security Council Head Diana Olegario (Angel Aquino). But, the inclusion of more women in its current roster of ensemble as the narrative continues to develop sends a powerful message.
This includes Denise Laurel, who breathes life to the unswerving, tough, and smart Police Chief Inspector Alessandra Romero, or simply called as Major Alex Romero.

Since her new character has been creating a buzz, we didn’t let the opportunity to ask her about it in her recent visit on ABS-CBN.com Entertainment’s Kapamilya Chat.
Aside from enthusiastically sharing her experience on working with the genius Coco Martin and the whole crew and her most unforgettable moments on-and-off-cam, she also discussed the importance of having a female representation in action-drama series like FPJ’s Ang Probinsyano.
“I think it’s a great thing that we represent the power of women and the Filipinas that also protect our country,” the 31-year-old seasoned actress stated, noting how the program has been opening up lately for the inclusion of women in the police troop by using ‘guys’ instead of ‘men’ or ‘gentlemen’ in . “Because we have to represent the ladies too. The women are just as passionate, just as intense as men can be and we got to show that.”
Furthermore, she even imparted how she thinks that the women on the primetime series are being empowered as the female characters are able to exhibit the unique fighting power of girls.
“I think it’s showing that we are just as tactical-savvy as men can be, we also kick butt just like men can do, and ang fighting power talaga ng babae, iba. So I love that I got to showcase that here. Not only are we strong, but we are also nurturing and compassionate. And that and that alone is another kind of strength,” she conveyed.
She ended the chat by telling the viewers that there’s still more to look forward on to her amazing character and to the show as a whole.
