Aside from welcoming the new year with her family and decluttering in her wardrobe, another thing that Diamond Star Maricel Soriano did to start 2023 is to look back on the year that has passed and share the things she’s looking forward to this year. And she did this by responding to the questions prepared by her team in her latest vlog!
She commenced the vlog by enthusiastically imparting that she has already started filming for her upcoming teleserye Linlang, which truly makes her happy and excited. With all the blessings that has been coming her way, she indeed always has nothing but gratitude to God, to whom she surrenders everything because she firmly believes that “thy will be done.” Besides, she never loses her grip to the #BagingOfHope, too.
Another thing that makes her happy is the fact that the plants she’s been taking care of didn’t die and instead propagated, thanks to the assistance of her Tiya Candy.
While many have considered entering the world of entrepreneurship this year, the 57-year-old actress confessed that she actually doesn’t see herself doing so. However, she does see herself creating and uploading more vlogs, which she is truly fond of doing because of the love she continuously receives from her loyal fans.
Just like us, she also missed traveling with her family, especially abroad, which she’s hoping to do again this year. If there are three destinations that she’s eyeing to go to this year, those will be Rome in Italy, Paris in France, and the well-loved Japan. Apart from her family, she also wishes to bond with fellow veteran actress Sylvia Sanchez and visit her beach house.
She expressed as well her yearning to see her Ang Sa Iyo Ay Akin co-stars Iza Calzado and Jodi Sta. Maria, but both actresses are still busy with their respective lives – Iza with her pregnancy and Jodi with travelling and her strings of projects. The same goes to her The General’s Daughter co-actress Angel Locsin, who she has not seen for a long time now.
With regards to her biggest achievement last 2022, it would be losing weight – to which she’s very much happy and proud of. She started her journey to healthy living and developed self-discipline when it comes to the food she eats to maintain her weight.
Instead of mentioning a name of celebrity she wishes to work with in her next project, she said that she rather be surprised in order to avoid getting disappointed. However, she’s still praying that her forthcoming project with Sylvia Sanchez, which details she’s not allowed to divulge yet, will push through. She also reacted on Nadine Lustre’s Twitter post involving her that went viral recently, to which she already replied – much to the delight of the netizens and their respective fans.
Aside from simply throwing questions at her, Maricel’s team also made her play a simple game, wherein she had to guess what the set of pictures in each paper were pertaining to that has something to do with her.
The first one was about the Dreamscape Entertainment series Linlang, which already started filming the day before this vlog was shot. She imparted that she had her first scenes with JM de Guzman, who plays the role of her son.
Next was the Hollywood movie she has been cast in 2022. According to her, the filming is set to begin this April. Her supporters should also watch for her upcoming TV project under HBO, which also is also starred by Judy Ann Santos-Agoncillo, Snooky Serna, among other actresses.
And lastly, she was surprised by her team with her much-awaited YouTube Silver Play Button, which she giddily unboxed. She thanked her over 120 thousand subscribers and persuaded the casual viewers to subscribe to her channel, too. For this year, she’s looking forward to do collaborations with other celebrities and YouTubers.
We’re excited to see your upcoming projects, our Diamond Star!
