Did you know that aside from having a special day for mothers, fathers, grandparents, and children, there’s also a celebration for aunties and uncles? As we pay tribute to the special women in our lives who shower us with love and support no matter what apart from our moms, grandmas, and sisters, Maalaala Mo Kaya features the inspiring and relatable story of a niece with her aunt in its upcoming episode this Saturday, July 23.
Elisse Joson graced the latest episode of Hotspot and talked about her latest MMK stint. She shared that it follows the story of Irma Adlawan’s character, a spinster whose life revolved around raising her niece Joy, played by Elisse – despite not being blood-related. For her, the #MMKBidaSiTita episode will prove that maternal love can be provided not only by our moms, but by other people as well, like our beloved aunts.
With regards to how she’s able to relate with Joy, Elisse disclosed that they’re the same when it comes to not being showy nor vocal with their feelings towards people that they just met. It’s because they have reservations in themselves that other people may not love or accept them, until they feel at ease or comfortable with a certain person. Besides, both of them also express their love through actions.
On working with Irma, Elisse described her as very warm, humble, and supportive. Aside from willingly heeding to her requests of doing certain gestures that could help her in their scenes, she also gave her tips on acting and how to get along with everybody in the production when Elisse asked her.
In the past decade that she’s been in showbiz, she yearns to do more projects and to be able to work with more actors, as well as to portray her dream role as someone with split personality.
Don’t forget to show your love and support to Elisse as she returns to MMK via the #MMKBidaSiTita, this Saturday, July 23 at 8PM, on Kapamilya Channel, Kapamilya Online Live, A2Z Channel 11 and iWantTFC.
