Aside from the addictive storyline, there is no doubt the credit for Kadenang Ginto’s success also goes to its truly talented cast. Viewers have become attached to the characters, both good and bad, because of how effortlessly portrayed they are. So, as a thank you, the Gold Squad prepared a little surprise for Beauty Gonzales for her 28th birthday.
Standing in front of the Mondragon household, our leading actress is completely unaware of what was about to happen. “Ano ‘yung first line ko? ‘Bakit ka nandito?’,” she asked, focused on a scene they are supposed to shoot. It was at that moment when her co-stars came in from behind her while singing “Happy Birthday.” Completely caught off guard, Beauty quickly became teary-eyed.
“Happy birthday Ate Beauty, sana po ‘yung happiness na nararamdaman n’yo ngayon hindi mawala sa inyo,” Francine Diaz said while hugging her on-screen mom tightly.
Andrea Brillantes also offered her best wishes, “Stay sexy, and beautiful, and fun, and young.”
Seth Fedelin jokingly called her nanay before greeting her, “thank you sa pag-guide sa akin.”
Kyle Echarri then added, “Stay the best young at heart mom.”
After warm wishes were said and candles were blown, the Gold Squad also taught her the Halo-Halo dance. Although she was practically making up the steps, she was very game to give an impromptu performance.
Beauty was beyond thankful for the support from fans as well as every single cast and crew member. “Thank you kasi, honestly, after 11 years of my career ngayon lang ako nag-bloom with my career,” she admitted while getting emotional.
Kadenang Ginto has helped her in so many ways that working makes her feel good. “Pamilya kami dito,” she ended.
So, cheers to Beauty Gonzales!
