The upcoming ABS-CBN family melodrama “The Greatest Love”
held a Grand Love Presscon last July 14. The star-studded cast, comprised of Andi Eigenmann, Arron Villaflor, Matt Evans, Dimples Romana, Joshua Garcia, Rommel Padilla, and Sylvia Sanchez together with the legendary Ricky Lee, answered questions from the entertainment media.
According to Sylvia, “The Greatest Love”
is a family drama about the sacrifices of a mother, Gloria, as well as a story of her children’s journey. Ricky Lee explained that Gloria’s character is very complex; you will wonder whether she is strong or weak, good or bad, and Sylvia was able to get that across.
Dimples’ role as Amanda, on the other hand, is an effort to shed light on what actually leads to a child’s anger towards his/her parents. But as to why her family remains intact and strong, Dimples shared that it is probably because of her relationship with the Lord. She also clarified that she didn’t get to be who she is now to prove everybody wrong after she got pregnant at a young age. Instead, she worked hard because she wanted her mom to still be proud of her at the end of the day.
Andi also said that like Dimples, she got pregnant early on when she was just 21 years old. According to the actress, because of what happened, she learned the value of a family and the importance of staying strong. She disclosed that now, she could no longer allow herself to fail because she already has a clear vision of her future which is with her daughter, Ellie, who is now her sole motivation.
Rommel Padilla, meanwhile, stated that he is very thankful because he never imagined that, at his age, he would still be given these kinds of opportunities. He also shared that because of his experiences in life, he was able to relate to his role as Andres who did everything to win Gloria and later on tried his best to prove to her that he can become a good father and husband.
