Sylvia Sanchez recalls past teleseryes in “How Well Do You Know Your Shows” Challenge

Almost 25 years since her first-ever teleserye in the Kapamilya Network, Sylvia Sanchez says she could still remember most of her scenes from the countless series she’s done in the past. Let’s see if she can pass Kapamilya Chat’s “How Well Do You Know Your Shows” Challenge!

To win the game, Sylvia must answer all questions related to her teleseryes. First, in celebration of Maalaala Mo Kaya’s 30th anniversary, we asked the veteran actress to guess how many MMK episodes she’s done. Sylvia lost count already.  “Hindi ko na alam. Kasi nag-MMK na ako noong si Arjo pa lang anak ko hanggang ngayon. Marami na pero hindi ko alam eksakto.” The correct answer is 29. Her latest MMK stint was about the life story of Doctor El Bactol portrayed by her son Arjo Atayde.

Asked her character name in Pangako Sa’Yo, Sylvia turned to Eula Valdes for help, who starred in the original version and was with her during the interview to promote Huwag Kang Mangamba’s The Healing Finale. Eula had no idea, either. The correct answer is Crystal Toleda.

Next is the total number of her children in Pamilya Ko. She said 8, but actually it’s 9 “kasi panganay ko si Joey sa set.” Sylvia even enumerated the names of these 8 children namely JM de Guzman, Kiko Estrada, Kid Yambao, Jairus Aquino, Maris Racal, Kira Balinger, Mutya Orquia and Raikko Mateo.

In the afternoon soap The Greatest Love, her character Gloria had a sickness called Alzheimer’s disease. In her first Kapamilya show “Esperanza,” Sylvia was the “kontrabida” mother Celia.
